Namaz - Objections and Counterobjections

Forgot one thing:

You said:
Again, a matter of perception; not everyone who has had suicidal thoughts is sick. Psychiatrists can only treat sick people, not the ones who have lost the will to live because of madmen around them. Try envisaging yourself locked up in a cuckoo's nest!

Just because one is reffered to a psychiatrist does not mean said person is sick.

Psychiatrists or therapists can help individuals understand their own thoughts and why/how they came to certain conclusions in their lifes. An individual does not have to be sick in their "head" in order to go see these professionals.

IF i had a close friend, who's situation i knew and could understand why he may have started having such thoughts, being there for him would be easier since i know said person well.

But if a total stranger came to me and said he had suicidal thoughts, i would not know said persons background nor current situation, and helping this person would all of the sudden become much harder. Simply because i do not know if he was being serious on his claim, or simply wanting somebody to talk with.
Hence an emergency hospitilisation could easily become actual.

There's a reason its statutory for citizens to call the police if someone sitting by the window claims he wants to take his own life..

I've had such thoughts myself once.. It's not a funny state of mind to be in.
But alhamdulilah i think it's made us both stronger.

When you feel everything is against you, the entire world becomes a locked cage.
