    I have never heard of such a story in my past before, but I was wondering if there were some people out there who suffered from Anxiety, and I'm not talking about just being depressed, or being embarrassed to the point of having suicidal thought.


    I'm asking if there were people who really suffered from Social anxiety, or some other form to the point that they claimed their own lives, can it get that serious?

    For sure it can get that serious. I suffer from social anxiety and feel like I am under a house arrest! It doesn't help with my depression at all, it just makes it worse. I try my best not to think about it. I can understand how someone must feel to comprehend that they may never have a great social life ever again.

    It is like having a disability. It is a disability of sorts as we are prevented from doing normal activity from something that is happening to us physically.

    I don't know about studies. But 100% I can see anxiety pushing some one over the brink to commit suicide. I have severe anxiety and amd managing it or trying too. Some one who is not good at managing this conditions and cannot handle it is a very likely outcome for that that person

    That anxiety and depression association of America states that:
    "More than 90 percent of those who die by suicide have a diagnosable illness such as clinical depression, and often in combination with anxiety or substance use disorders and other treatable mental disorders."

    There is defiantly a link between anxiety and suicide. As @Brightsideup mentioned, anxiety is a condition that can consume you deeply and drive you to behavoiur you never thought you would be capable of.

    As a person who has considered suicide as much as I have.. you just think... is this anyway to live? Not only that , you genuinely believe that you are doing the whole world a favor by doing it. I ask yourself.. What right do you have to put people you love and care about through this? There is a genuine shame. I have a very hard time living with myself. I'm aware that life is hard for everyone but, for people like us.. it is just soooo much harder. Sometimes you like that you just can't do it anymore. So yes.. Anxiety and depression does create thoughts of suicide. . Believe me. I know from experience.

    My friend committed suicide. She was terribly mixed up and depressed. Her father even sent her to a hospital for a while but that didn't help. I think suicide is just like death. We never know when it will happen. My friend tried a number of times before she finally succeeded in her awful quest.

    She had so many friends and people who loved her. It took me at least a year before I could stop crying about it. One of her friends even needed therapy to get over it. It was awful and such a shock. I don't blame her. I try to understand her instead with compassion.
