Northern Ireland's suicide epidemic claims young lovers as two more of its victims

Independent - Experts say the Northern Ireland suicide rate is the highest in the UK.
The most up-to-date figures ­ for 2001 ­ show the rate is 26 deaths per 100,000 of population for young males. This compared with a UK-wide figure of 15 deaths per 100,000. The male suicide rate was 21 per 100,000, compared to 19 per 100,000 across the UK. In north Belfast, between 11 and 13 suicides were recorded within a few months earlier this year.
There were 5,910 suicides and undetermined deaths recorded in the UK in 2001, of which 132 were in Northern Ireland. The majority of those taking their lives are young males, but authorities say they are also concerned about suicides among the older population.

My advice?
If it is women troubles and you are a man, wait a week and it will blow over, you will feel better.
If it is man troubles and you are a woman, wait a month and it will blow over, you will feel better.

Demons from the past?
Face them and move on.

Did you know your diet may be contributing to depression and suicide ideation?
When you get depressed, your body systems get knocked haywire and out of sync. The bottom line is that your digestive system, maintained by an area of the brain called the hypothalamus, does not work properly and your body fills with free radicals when you eat.

Heavy fats will deepen your depression, as will anything which requires a lot of digestion.

You wanna feel better?
Avoid high-fat foods and instead eat fish for the fish oils, especially Omega-3 (look for this on tins), eat fresh veggies and take a multivitamin. You will begin to feel better within a few days.
