MRSA Staph Symptoms Can Lead to Suicide Attempts

MRSA stands for Methicilln Resistant Staphyloccus Aureus and it’s a disease that’s only been around for about 20 years, so it’s still spreading around United States and most countries and most people are fairly vulnerable to it, since they haven’t built up their defense mechanism. MRSA staph symptoms usually show themselves as skin infections such as swollen, red, pus filled and painful boils/abscesses. MRSA can also infect the lungs and cause pneumonia which will display itself as shortness of breath, fever, heavy coughs and chills.

In certain cases it can progress into necrotizing fasciitis, also known as flesh-eating bacteria/flesh-eating disease. These spread quickly and can in turn lead to suicide attempts since they are so visually scarring. Pay special attention if the person has MRSA in nose symptoms or MRSA in bloodstream symptoms, since these can cause additional complications. MRSA bloodstream symptoms usually show themselves from surgical wound infections, so it’s not very common. It is also very important to monitor MRSA symptoms in children, since they can have problems coping with the disease(especially if it’s the flesh-eating kind), which can in turn lead to a suicide attempt.

The reason necrotizing fasciitis can cause suicide, is because it’s a disfiguring disease that can cause the person to get scared and depressed, which can in turn make the infected person try attempting suicide to end their suffering, especially if they find out that they have the fatal version of the disease.

If you think suicide is not a real threat or that it only happens to a couple of people, consider this. More than 1.1 million Americans attempt killing themselves every year in United States. In fact 1 out of every 14 Americans knows someone who will kill themselves during this year. Worldwide the numbers go up to 10-20 million suicide attempts a year, which is more or less the equivalent of the entire population of Australia, trying to kill themselves. So as you can see, it’s a real threat, and should be monitored carefully.

So if you know someone suffering from MRSA, you should learn all the different suicide warning signs so that you’ll know if they ever become suicidal. If you yourself are infected, you should provide such a guide to someone you see daily, so that they can stop you from taking your own life. Remember MRSA can usually get cured, you just need someone to interfere when you get clinically depressed, so that they can stop you from taking your own life.
