suicide banana

I never knew the existence of Arlina Banana till KakSyu showed me her hilarious videos. I started to follow her and scrolling all the way down her instagram to see her videos from the very beginning as she seemed quite interesting to me. And then I knew that she's actually sick. She's depressed. 
Depression.

I learnt this subject in my second year. The exact pathophysiology is unclear, but studies suggest that it happens due to disturbance of the neurotransmitter in the central nervous system which is serotonin (5-HT). Serotonin has so much vital function contributing to our moods. Good moods. The etiology is multi factorial, can be due to genetics or environmental factors such as broken family, unconducive workplace, heavy workload and yes cyber-bullying. Depression is not something to be laughed of. It is real. People with depression has significant potential for morbidity and mortality. They have high tendency to injure themselves or worse commit suicide. 

I happened to see the tweets posted by Arlina Banana about suicides. I did read the response from others too. Frankly speaking, our community is sick. How can you laugh at someone who has psychiatric problem? This kind of act is shameful. Your tweets is the mirror of yourself. The way you spit the words show that you are uneducated. You are such a stupid moron that just sitting on your lazy ass condemning people that you don't even know the stories behind her struggle to keep on living, with your harsh words you then kill her.

Word kills.


If she happen to be your siblings, will you be happy seeing her die? She's dying. Your words might kill her. So then, can I consider you guys as murderers? 

Yes, Islam teaches us to preserve our soul. We're not God to decide death. It is beyond our capabilities. And people who commit suicide, the best place for them is the Hell Fire as what mentioned in Quran. But, it is between them and God. Not us to decide. Instead of adding the stress making them more depressed, why don't we comfort them with good words? 

Words may heal. 
Selamat Hari Raya in advanced!
