This section talks about the myths and facts on suicide and what makes people attempt it.
The main idea of this section is to tell people about suicide and what can cause people to attempt it.
Myth #1: People who talk about suicide seldom attempt suicide. Fact #1: Suicide victims often talk about suicide before they actually attempt it. Myth #2: If a depressed, suicidal person suddenly seems better, you don’t need to worry. Fact #2: A suicidal person’s sudden shift in mood from depressed to happy may indicate that he or she has resolved to commit suicide and needs help.
There was a girl named Gina. Gina always got fashion magazines in the mail every month. She always would like to look at the super skinny models and obsess to become that skinny. She was already a well proportioned girl who didn’t need to lose any weight. She would always think she was too fat or too ugly and have it stuck in her mind. She soon became very depressed. She would distance herself from her friends at school and lose them by doing that. She then started to think about committing suicide because she thought she wasn’t good enough. Her mom soon figured out what Gina was doing and got her help.
I feel that suicide is a very serious thing. I don’t think that it is anyway to cure a problem. If you ever feel or think about committing suicide you should get help immediately.
The section that I studied was about the myths and facts on suicide. It told the true meaning about suicide and what you should do if you think you should do it.
