People are not divided into guaranteed suicides and into those who are not at risk. People are divided into those who committed suicide and those who did not
Our IT work is accompanied by nerve strains, boundary mental disorders, emotional and professional exhaustion, the chiefs sometimes meeting narcissuses and sadists, and much, many others. And our dismissive society, which postulates “Without success and money you are no one,” no longer stimulates libido, rather mortise.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), every 40 seconds, some of the inhabitants of the Earth leave their lives consciously, to commit suicide. Look at the clock — the second shooter bypassed the circle. Another human life ended.
According to WHO statistics, among the causes of death of young people (aged 15–29) on a global scale suicide takes second place — not car accidents, not drugs, not alcohol, not extreme sports. Suicide.
Every day 3,000 people commit suicide in the world, and every year about 1 million people (1.5% of all deaths).
Interestingly, men commit suicide 4 times more often than women, although women commit 4 times more suicide attempts. Oh, these theatrical things.
It ‘s scary to talk about this topic. But you can ‘t keep quiet either. Especially autumn — it is time for exacerbations, as psychiatrists say.
There are two rules. Learn them as if they were soothed by a neocortex:
1. If you are thinking about committing suicide, no matter why, immediately inform your mother, father, sister, brother, friend, teacher, colleague, even manager. Don ‘t think of shame. Think that this mistake can no longer be corrected.
2. If you took a knife, got into a cozy warm bath and look at the ripple of veins on the wrist or femoral artery if you took a bubble with pills of sleeping pills or neuroleptics if you came close to the railings of the balcony or sat on the window sill… As Münhausen out of the swamp pulls yourself by the slash, get to the phone dial 103 or 112 and what voice you will be able to say: “I need help. I want to commit suicide. Come quickly. I feel bad. “
And help you. You will definitely be pulled out of this condition — even though through relanium, fenazepam, antidepressants — but you will live a long, happy, difficult but interesting life. And once you tell your grandchildren about it.
The point of life is to live. And rejoice in life. And nothing else
Story One, Neurotransmitter
I had and still have a good friend. By profession, a psychiatrist. Strong psyche, except to break the sleepers. One day, he and his wife came to a friend ‘s birthday party. A tough week, the mother-in-law came to visit, the superiors were drinking, the patients were weirder than the other. But it seems as usual. Sitting with friends drank normally like this. And then the wife who understands her, well, didn ‘t like the beautiful half of the human race. And she told my psychiatrist friend a very short, voluminous, but accurate gag, connected with some difficulties in family relations, which seemed to solve and the wife made conclusions, but… Women, when living with a man for more than 10 years, so recognize him inside and outside that they always find in armor a burned place, where simply for nothing, under the mood can put a long stiletto, lovingly greased with poison.
My friend had a drink of cognac. And he was so tired that he went out on the balcony, smoked a cigarette, looked at the snowy yard 10 floors below — and thought, and why not. Only professional flair saved. Automatically, the pulse measured estimated skin humidity — and realized that he had a classic catecholamine storm, the trigger of which was a stupid babe.
A catecholamine storm can happen to everyone — even without a psychotravming factor. Just at once a bunch of neurotransmitters and neurohormons are thrown into the blood. And you get the short-lived hell on earth — when the life of the ten, the grey, the dirt, and the pack. And there ‘s no point.
We read the rules above — immediately turn to friends and confess to the situation so that as a last resort they simply hold hands. If there ‘s no one around, then we count up to 200. Remember that number. In about 200 seconds by natural processes, neurotransmitters from the synaptic slit between neurons will be successfully captured by receptors — and everything will return to normal. And thoughts of suicide will disappear.
Story Two, Love
There is Lucia from 11-B, or Natasha from the third year of MGIMO, or Sofya from the HR department, to which you have been breathing uneven for a year with a little. And she, the goat, took and came to the corporate with the new boyfriend, or even with the groom. Life is almost over if you are hysterical, neurotic and emotionally labile. In order to demonstrate how foolish it is to throw libido behind my shoulder and put mortise on my ears, I will use Andrei Lomachinsky ‘s magnificent story. More foolish in literary terms to portray love suicide at me simply won’t succeed. I ‘m not a medic with as much experience as Lomachinsky. Just a writer completing the second education “Clinical Psychologist.”
That ‘s the story. Therefore it is better to switch immediately to Katya from 11-A, or Lena from the second year of Baumanki, or a forty-year-old head from the neighboring department — she is a woman prominent, loves stockings and shoes on high heels, and it is simply more interesting to talk to her about everything.
The main thing is, foolishness is not to do. Even if it ‘s quite visible, and life ‘s not nice. The next day, things will be very different. As Voltaire said, “Everything that happens is for the best in this best of worlds.” Let him say that to the easy Ehiid, but he ‘s right to the ProKindees.
History Three, Clinical
Socio-economic and political instability are often cited as risk factors. It ‘s a crime, too. And unemployment. Won as surprised Glavk pension reform — I as if I wanted to look at real statistics of suicides. And not those indicators of Rosstat, which change with sharp changes in management.
The unemployed, as well as unskilled workers, are more likely to commit suicide. Doctors, especially women, are also at increased risk, with female doctors committing 2.3 times more suicides than the population average and men 1.4 times more suicides. The high-risk group also includes musicians, lawyers, lower officer ranks, insurance agents, pensioners, prisoners. In general, persons with higher education have a high probability of suicide.
The good thing is that there is little unemployment in IT. This means if the head is on our shoulders, we ‘ll remove that factor.
In rare and severe cases, professional burnout, especially amid misunderstanding in the family and company, can develop into a classic such clinical depression. In which a suicidal component may be present.
Depressive disorders are the most suicidal among all mental and behavioral disorders. Even mild forms of depression carry an increased risk of suicide. With great clinical depression, the probability of suicide increases by 20 times.
And in the next article, I will touch on just the topic of the very depressive-anxiety disorder, which around you is much more than you think and suspect. What to do, how to understand that it is time to be treated, where to run, who to believe, how to reach the first rays of recovery — and not to slide into what we talked about above.
And the darkest time of day always comes dawn.
