His story will help me prove how serious depression is/can be. It shows that kids who think their teasing is "harmless" could actually push someone to their own death.

The Agony of Ecstasy: Florida woman with rare sex arousal disorder commits suicide (VIDEO)

The Agony of Ecstasy: Florida woman with rare sex arousal disorder commits suicide (VIDEO) | Suicide | Scoop.it

A woman who was featured in a Tampa Bay Times story that dealt with a rare sexual disorder was found dead of suicide late Saturday at her home in Spring Hill, according to the Hernando County Sheriff's Office.

 

Sheriff's officials did not provide details about how or when Gretchen Molannen died, but she was last seen alive Thursday at 11:30 p.m. Records show deputies responded to a suicide call about midnight Saturday night. The Times received emails from two of her friends confirming her death and lamenting that she wasn't able to get the help she needed.

 

Molannen, 39, suffered from persistent genital arousal disorder, a debilitating condition marked by continuous sexual arousal. Women who have the disorder are physically but not psychologically aroused. Many must masturbate for hours for just a few minutes of relief. Some doctors believe the condition is caused by a nerve malfunction.

 

Molannen struggled with the disorder for 16 years. For the first 10 years, she had no idea what she had and suffered in silence. She tried to work, but the condition affected her job performance and she was unable to keep steady employment after 1999. She lived in Spring Hill with her parents — both now dead — and never told them what she was going through. In 2007, she saw a woman talk about the condition on the TV program 20/20 and finally realized what she had.

 

She said the condition was so debilitating that she attempted suicide at least three times during the past year...

'More Americans now commit suicide than are killed in car crashes as miserable economy takes its toll'

'More Americans now commit suicide than are killed in car crashes as miserable economy takes its toll' | Suicide | Scoop.it

Via Daily Mail:

 

Suicide is the cause of more deaths than car crashes, according to an alarming new study.

 

The number of people who commit suicide in the U.S. has drastically increased while deaths from car accidents have dropped, making suicide the leading cause of injury death.


Suicides via falls or poisoning have risen significantly and experts fear that there could be many more unaccounted for, particularly in cases of overdose.

 

'Suicides are terribly under-counted,' said Ian Rockett, author of the study, published on Thursday in the American Journal of Public Health.


'I think the problem is much worse than official data would lead us to believe. We have a situation that has gotten out of hand.'

 

He added that his goal is to see the same attention paid to other injuries as has been paid to reducing the number of deaths in traffic accidents.


The results were compiled using National Center for Health Statistics data gathered from 2000 to 2009.


Researchers noted a 25 per cent decrease in fatal car accidents, medicalxpress.com reported, while deaths from falls rose 71 per cent, poisoning 128 per cent and from suicide 15 per cent.

Biology does seem to be a factor in the issue of suicide. From research, most people who attempted suicide were also found to have the gene called RGS2. 43% of the people who attempted suicide had this gene.

Holidays May Actually Protect People Against Suicide

Holidays May Actually Protect People Against Suicide | Suicide | Scoop.it
Contrary to popular belief, major holidays are actually associated with a lower number of suicides, but days in the beginning of the week, and in the start of spring, were linked to more suicide attempts.

Noah Schmidt's curator insight, May 23, 2013 10:20 AM

The fact that there are lower suicide attempts around the holidays suggests that family support and communication can boost mood and therefore have people reconsider taking their own lives. I believe this is true because during the holidays they realize how much they are loved and how hurt their family would be if they were gone.
