“I know its tough. Your pain is real and sometimes suffocating. You feel alone and hopeless. You want to give up. But no!”
Suicide is common nowadays. A crisis within a crisis is the main cause in the context of Nepal. Not only this physical torture, fears, emotions, heartbreak, and blackmailing are also the causes of suicide. Despite this, the new cause of COVID-19 and lockdown is directly linked to suicide.
Many people suffered from mental illness such as anxiety, depression, fear of getting illnesses including different problems. All these reasons have some connections behind the increase in suicide cases if they are not addressed on time. Even people with no history of mental illness become vulnerable nowadays. They were severely impacted.
According to Nepal Police 2017/18 official record, almost 15 people committed suicide every day with a total of 5,317 killing themselves (Nepal police 2018). On a Provincial basis, Province 5 had leading cases of suicide i.e. 242 having the highest number likewise Bagmati Province- 231, Province 1- 186, Province 2-152, Sudur Paschim -115, Gandaki-121, and Karnali 58 till date (Nepal Police). During lockdown from ‘2076 Chaitra, 11 till 2077 Shrawan 4’ 2218 people committed suicide where 811 were women and 235 were youths.
Yes, they committed suicide, they are out of there life full of problems and many other things but their families, relatives, and whoever other people are connected with him/her suffer more. That’s why we all should know that “Suicide is not an option for problems”.
I just want everyone to know that I have been there and life isn’t easy, but death will only make everything more complicated. Everyone has rough patches in life but you just have to push through and soon enough you will come out of the other side a new person and you will feel amazing.
