Suicide: What is your keyword?

Filed in Gather Health Essential by on March 26, 2012 0 Comments

Hello,

 

The following article caused me to write a comment and share it with a soldier who has lost two friends to suicide.

“More than 1,100 U.S. servicemen and women killed themselves between 2005 and 2009.” -Army Announces Suicide Prevention Study. Military.com

My response to: Lance Cpl. Nicholas Neighbors.

 

Hope is the keyword! The ONLY way to get hope is to force conversations! At times, the suicidal person will even be affected by the thought of being “dependent” upon conversation. Why can’t they explain their feelings? Why can’t another understand?

 

In truth, I believe all have considered suicide. For some, it may be a passing glimpse of time, for others it may happen after their first divorce, for some it may happen if they lose a loved one, and some may consider suicide after being abused physically, sexually, or emotionally, but I believe we all “consider” it. On the other hand, most do not want to “associate” and believe “tough love” is the best policy. Even the person experiencing pain feels that way. Well, I disagree! Instead, I believe we have to talk, and I also agree that you are making a major change in this world!

 

Although counselors are “trained”, they are not truly “trained”. Our society is so focused on “perfection” that most are afraid to tell the truth! Ever heard someone talk about another’s perfect marriage while saying their marriage has problems? Later the other couple’s “perfect” marriage falls apart. How many counselors of suicidal thoughts have considered suicide? Would they admit it to a suicidal person?

 

To make matters worse, each person sees the world differently when in a suicidal thought process. As soldiers well know, it is virtually impossible to have a “civilian” understand your troubles. Although other Veterans have an “idea”, only your squad truly knows your experiences. Still, the “individual” is the only person who “knows” how he or she felt at a specific moment in time. I believe the same is true for the suicidal person but the thought process “seems” illogical. Why? because they desire death more than life.

 

A suicidal person might look at nature and not “process” the beauty! A suicidal person loses all  “love” of colors, taste, conversation, sharing, etc! A suicidal person has to repeat the love of colors, the love of the taste of a pop, the love of sharing information, the love of learning, the love of plants, flowers, birds, trees, bees, planes, etc. to get out of the rut. “It is the little things that keep us going!” Who originally said that? Was he or she suicidal? The suicidal person has to remind themselves Every Second that the flowers, trees, clouds, etc. are beautiful and there is a reason to Live!

 

You are NOT ALONE!

HealCam

As a whistleblower from Abbott Laboratories, I have experienced and continue to experience sociopaths who use directional audio, direct communication, metaphorical language, and allegorical layering to bully. In addition, criminal activity from “friends of Abbott Laboratories” caused me to spend one night in ICU, two weeks in the hospital, and six months on therapy. Prior to hospitalization, I used my chemical engineering and biological sciences degrees to research my “symptoms” and determine my medical condition. Afterwards, I visited the Emergency Department and shared my findings, which lead to imaging, hospitalization, surgery, and, eventually, my life being spared. I attribute my success to God as well!

When I was looking for information, I used “trusted” resources but my education allowed me to realize what was trusted. I have created articles on various topics and discussed some of those resources. Sadly, many people do not have such knowledge. In these cases, connecting with a more informed patient, “peer”, would be quite beneficial. As a Whistleblower, I wished someone would understand my experiences. Sadly, most law-abiding “citizens” do not expect a corporation to murder, which places a victim in a precarious position; “Criminals” are attracted to such a possibility. In these cases, sociopaths take advantage of the victim. I believe the “HealCam” resource would provide many patients a needed support system. A support system that is missed by many who do not understand their situation. At times, we all need someone to talk to but few have someone they can truly trust. As such, we have become a society that “bottles up” feelings and believe in the greatest con in the “World”. “Dude, you are so negative! Think positively!” The latter works when you are not the “victim” but falls apart once you become a victim. Obviously, “victim” is relative.

In addition to My Gather Network: Quidnunc Simcha, I am a Guest-Editor and “Conversation Starter” at Conversations for a Better World, Chris Harding, which is a shared blog on population, gender and health, and provided by United Nations Population Fund Website.

Your Gather

Conversations for a Better World

You should consider contribution to Conversations for a Better World as well! The more diverse the discussions the better the results in most instances. Although time to a solution will increase significantly, the final result is usually better for humanity.

A Needed Discussion!

You are NOT ALONE!

With that said, I would like to add the following links to all of my posts. I hope others will copy and paste the same into their posts as well. The best way to end corruption is to discuss corruption. At the root of most criminal enterprises are corrupt police, citizens, and politicians. The latter are grandmas, grandpas, fathers, mothers, police, church deacons, etc. Be warned, the corrupt people in your environment could begin harassing you.

Some Information and Brief References about Whistleblowers:

• Wikileaks and “What is a Whistleblower?”

Much of the “legal” debate about “whistleblower laws”, which includes lobbyist, is the balance between organizational leadership responsibility, who should receive the first report, and the role of a whistleblower. As Mr. Gayl, who is a whistleblower that saved soldier’s lives, mentions, GAP is an “outsider”, and he shows frustration with his “organizations” ability to handle the complaint effectively. In some instances, a whistleblower may be “blowing the whistle” for unethical reasons. If their “complaint”, after proper investigation, is deemed inappropriate, the organization should have an authority to “reprimand” or “retaliate” against the employee. Sadly, many organizations and criminals take advantage of big hearts, balanced people, and ethical beliefs. We see this in regular crime, which includes corporate crime as well. On many occasions, corporations work to create “loopholes” that make a law ineffective. Many people have died because of corporate irresponsibility. Although I am an advocate for corporations, I believe in ethical processes.

I love my country, but we have a problem. Spoiled Americans will kill for sport and bullying is an example. Another term for bullying is “gang stalking”, which may be more appropriate, but the legal term may be the defined term of “bullying”. Some corporate employees and “friends of organizations” use harassment, “bullying or stalking”, and believe it is not that bad, but, in truth, it is considered emotional torture-adults and children should refrain. If an adult “bullies”, a child will follow their example.

Additional Information and References:

As many know, a Multi-national Study by World Health Organization (1) reports that abused women and men believe “emotional abuse” is worse than physical abuse because it causes life-long psychological trauma and is virtually impossible to prove. The inability to “prove” is why many “pillars” will engage. In fact, corrupt societies are breeding grounds for such activity.

STOP SEX Trafficking! and Meth!

Support Senator Ron Wyden in his fight against sex-trafficking. Although the Pacific Northwest is the worse US location, it is an American problem and probably associated with the Meth network. Tell me corrupt police do not know about this activity.

Why engage in activity that can increase the numbers? By the way, the numbers cause increased “disability” claims in the USA and Canada. Does the average individual in society truly want the human race to environmentally evolve to “the greatest emotional abuser” wins the prize? As we know, women have a tendency to lust after the “bad boy” mentality, but most don’t want to marry the “bad boy”.
