Woman Posts Suicide Note On Facebook, Only To Be Ignored Or Mocked By Friends!

woman-posts-suicide-note-on-facebook-is-ignored-or-mocked-in-comments

Just awful.

A 42-year-old British woman was recently reported to have committed suicide, and although she announced her intention to do so in a status update on Facebook, none of her 1,000+ friends even thought to check on her - despite some of them living in walking distance of her home!

Simone Back wrote the following message on the social networking site on Christmas Day:

"Took all my pills be dead soon bye bye everyone."

Most disturbing of all, however, is that instead of anyone picking up the phone or trying to check on her, many just responded to the status with messages like:

'She ODs all the time and she lies.'

'I hope that she is lying about this or you're going to feel guilty tomorrow.'

'Did you catch the part about Simone taking pills?? .. the 'bye bye' part?? Did anyone go by personally and check on Simone.. or call 999?? what's wrong with you people?? is the gossip really more important than her??'

'She does it all the time, takes all of her pills. She's not a kid anymore.'

'She has a choice and taking pills over a relationship is not a good enough reason.'

It wasn't until Back's mother, Jennifer Langridge, wrote the following message that people finally realized the seriousness of the situation:

'My daughter Simone passed away today so please leave her alone now.'

She later explained:

"Nobody told me anything about it until the following day when I was sent a text saying: 'get help.' I am disabled so can't get up the stairs to Simone's flat so I called the police straight away. It is upsetting to think nobody did anything for my daughter."

Unbelievable. And so tragic.

It seems clear that this woman was deeply troubled, but we think this says something quite serious about how people are using, and communicating with others, on websites like Facebook, and it's not a good thing.

We can't believe that someone would write something like that, and not ONE person who saw it would be so unconcerned that they'd not only ignore a cry for help, but openly mock it!

Our thoughts are with Simone's family during this difficult time.

    Sounds harsh but there are manipulative people who fake "suicide" all the time for attention. She sounds like one of those ppl. You can't burn bridges with your friends over and over and expect them to keep coming to your rescue. Sorry she's dead but she did it to herself.



  2. 2

    Every day dozens of people post the same comments, most just wanting the attention. Are people supposed to call the police every single time someone does this?



  3. 3

    as somebody who dealt with this b4 I have to say that, sadly, I do not blame them. If this was a habit of hers, it gets emotionally draining and exhausting to those around her. You get sick and tired of reaching out and trying and trying. It gets to the point when you think it is better to distance yourself since the whole ordeal is so selfish they dont even care how it affects you, or even worse- they use the suffering they are willingly causing as an excuse as to why they should do it….making it a never ending cycle. The whole thing is sad.



  4. 4

    Well, her 1000+ "friends" obviously aren't REAL FRIENDS. RIP Simone.



  5. 5

    Rest in Peace.



  6. 6

    Honestly i probably wouldn't have done anything either. I would have figured it was a song or someone just wanted attention and people to be like "aww what happened?" I am not one to be giving into peoples bullshit, this time it turned out to be serious, its pretty sad.



  7. 7

    you can't blame people for ignoring it. people out there are shamefully complete and utter attention seekers. and unless you are willing to go and get help and admit you have a problem, a lot of the time you are also an attention seeker.

    its not a problem if you dont do anything to fix it or seek help.



  8. 8

    What are you saying? Sure some people just want attention but it is obvious that they still feel bad and then NOBODY should be mocking them. How would you feel if she was one of your family members and all people did was to bully?



  9. 9

    sounds like a "boy who cried wolf" sort of story…………it's an unfortunate way to go but I rarely have sympathy for the "suicider", instead for the family and loved ones they so selfishly left behind……..



  10. 10

    UNBELIEVABLE…
    It is so DISGUSTING to know that I walk this EARTH with such COLD HEARTED SICK mother fuckers…
    For everyone that thought she was only crying WOLF I hope when it's your time your all alone just like she obviously has been for awhile….
    I hope ALL OF YOU feel like the piece of SHITS you are……



  11. 11

    Re: Slainey
    you are right you do sound harsh and unkind and pretty bad in general. I have a very close loved one that suffers from mental illness and and it's not easy and yes it's emotionally taxing but it's worrth it I can't see how it would have put anybody out to just check on her or have someone else do it - Why didn't someone - yes some people do this a lot online but isn't a life worth at least a moment of your time to look out for your fellow man - really - what is so importatnt that this kind of thing falls at the bottom of the to do list



  12. 12

    Granted a suicidal or troubled person shouldn't be ignored, it's possible that this person has cried "wolf" way too many times. It's a sad situation either way.



  13. 13

    Virtual friends are not real friends. Just have that in mind. And like someone said, if she did this all the time you know… its like the tale of the wolf coming.



  14. 14

    It may not have been their responsibility to respond to her, but it is not acceptable to mock her. If she made suicidal gestures in the past and you're sick of her, then keep your mouth shut and stay out of it. If you care about her, then do something about it. Criticizing someone with emotional problems who is obviously in a lot of pain is just plain heartless.



  15. 15

    Re: April 20th
    You don't appear to have sympathy for anyone as according to what you post here- you must live your life on here -GOD forbid someone would pull you away from the computer to help someone who is in danger of suicide - how many names do you post under now anyway? I urge you to get some help



  16. 16

    Sounds like she had pulled this stunt before and people were sick of her drama. Why should they take it seriously when she probably faked it before.
    It's not their faults for thinking that she was just seeking attention again.
    The boy who cried wolf comes to mind.



  17. 17

    its no one else's responsibility



  18. 18

    Re: alrightalright – you're the one posting to every person here that you don't agree with. i urge you to fuck off.

    Re: BELLA blue
    Well said Bella - often times people this sick don't really know they are that sick untill they are on the brink of suicide- Ther are some heartless mother fuckers on here especially that sorry excuse for a person who has mulitple personalities on her April fucking 20th - Guess which mass murdered has a birthday on that date?



  20. 20

    This is tough to read. As someone who has a sister that craves the attention and often writes disturbing things as her fb status I'm not sure if I read "Took all my pills be dead soon bye bye everyone." I would have went to her apartment to check on her.

    It may make me sound like a horrible person but at some point I have my own life to live and can't continue to coddle someone who only wants attention and refuses to get help with her problems.

    I'm so sorry that this woman has passed away however I understand where some of her 'friends' were coming from - It's like the story of the boy who cried wolf - at some point people are not going to believe you.



  21. 21

    Re: April 20th
    I agree!



  22. 22

    This poor soul was in pain and these were not her friends.



  23. 23

    Re: understudy3 – no not call the police but at least reach out to the person. whether you believe they are being serious or not its your duty as someone who views the comment, a human being, to reach out to that person.

    Re: April 20th
    I'm not suprised at your anger - I called you out -My guess is that you are an angry overwieght woman, probably middle aged that has fantasy realtionships with entertainers FEATURED HERE and yourself - seeing how you post back to yourself so much - whatever the case , that was such an intelligent response



  26. 26

    Re: like!!!COLON!!! whatever! – smart girl……hehehe :)



  27. 27

    Re: April 20th – really that is funny since I don't post nearly as often as you and the person I often can't stand is you and all your alter egos - you're an asshole and I have as much right to post what I want as you do - I bet you don't ofetn have people disagree with you beacause either you are the boss- fast food - or people just avoid you cause you're such a slag- Bitch - whatever - you obviously a heartless individual with a lot of time on your hands - that is when your not masterbating to people too young for you



  28. 28

    Yes, CRYING WOLF "Dramatics 101" — people do it all the time and if you were to constantly reward them with your attention and more drama, then you are living ThEIR life, not yours. Simone got what she said she wanted. She should not have gone there if she was just looking for attention. If you need attention, you tell people that you are depressed and you need attention to feel better. Believe it or not, people actually do respond better to the truth than to threats against yourself



  29. 29

    It takes a "MINUTE" to call police and report it. So getting your lazy uncaring selfish asses out of the house to check on her isnt even necessary. REALLY!!!



  30. 30

    Re: alrightalright – What a little retard you are. Get an education- your comments are run on, never ending sentences. If you felt such sympathy and consideration for man kind as you state so proudly, you'd never attack another person the way you've harassed me about my opinions and feelings. I don't have to feel anything for this woman that took her own life selfishly, leaving her poor mother to fight off and fend for her dead daughter.



  31. 31

    Didn't you ever hear of the phrase "cry wolf" Perez?? Here's a classic example.



  32. 32

    You can only cry wolf so many times.



  33. 33

    Re: alrightalright

    Don't you think its maybe a little insensitive to be calling another person you don't know over the internet all these names and swearing at them? Sorry but I just dont think its right, especially on a comments page for a blog post about a woman who unfortunately commited suicide and was mocked by virtual "friends" online.

    Anyway, RIP Simone, whether it was a case of "cry wolf" or not, it is a very unfortunate circumstance and my thoughts go out to the family she left behind



  34. 34

    Re: April 20th – Although I do agree with you on this, I do however think that suicide is not always completely selfish…my friend was anorexic for 15 years, from 10 years old she starved herself and lost weight constantly recieving very little help from the people that should have been there to help her..she took her life two years ago because she just simply couldn't cope anymore and couldn't face living the next 20 years the same way…of course her family and friends were and are still devestated, but we all knew how much she suffered with her illness, and the fact that she doesn't have to battle with it anymore, and to not have to see her is such a horrific state mentally and physically, is what keeps us strong . I for one don't think she was selfish at all, or angry with her, because I have been to the dark place she once was..if anything, I'm angry for not being able to say goodbye..suicide is awful for those left behind, but on rare cases is not always a selfish act.



  35. 35

    suicide is good, planet is crowded, if I decided to check out, I would dearly hope no one would try to stop me, it's not their business. Each of us "owns" his/her body/life!



  36. 36

    This story is truly heartbreaking.. I hope the “friends” she had will see and understand what a mistake they made..



  37. 37

    Re: Slainey – OMG.. shame on you! god forbid you may need help one day and no one reaches out to you..



  38. 38

    Re: gymfreak – I'm in no way being insensitive but why wouldn't she get therapeutic help? Friends/family are not the cure - in most cases (not saying yours at all) they are enablers and/or because they aren't doctors, they don't know how to handle such a condition. I'll admit, I'm quite judgmental and based on the above article, the woman does sound as though she was quite depressed but didn't accept the help others admittedly tried to offer. In the unfortunate instance of your friend, she had a despicable mental condition - how horrible she thought suicide was the only cure.



  39. 39

    Perez you mocked Mj's trip to the hospital the day of his death. SO you are not one to talk. It's not a good thing this lady died the way she did but don't talk down about others mocking death when you do the same.

    Re: bleahf – You do not even make sense! go away..

    Re: April 20th – I agree. I also feel sorry for the loved ones that were left behind. But not so much for the one who left us. She made her choice.



  42. 42

  43. 43

    Re: April 20th – I agree with you. I also feel sorry for the loved ones she left behind. But, not so much for the one who decided to leave us. She made her choice.



  44. 44

    just proves that you can have "1000+" friends and not even one true friend that would most likely would have saved her life

    AND THE FIRST TO BITCH ABOUT OTHERS PICKING ON HER! BRAVO!



  55. 55

    Unfortunatly I have a friend thats doing the same thing right now. Posts a message that scares us, we all reach out and then dont see any posts till a week later, then its a sad, gonna die post, so we all reach out, call, and its a never ending pattern. Its getting old. I love him but Im afraid that one of these days, this will be his story. You can only cry wolf so many times you know? Its draining on us that are trying to help him. We have our own lives and problems too.



  56. 56

    Re: April 20th – You seem to not understand that if someone has decided to take ones own life then they are not thinking reasonably.. they are in pain.. you are the one that should get help.. you are a sick person.. her own mother asked why no one called or helped her daughter.. yet you say you feel sorry for her mother?? Then why don’t you actually hear what the mother said? I bet you dont have any friends yourself and that is why you are such a bitter person with no empathy for others..



  57. 57

    Re: April 20th – We don't need people who are ignorant and don't understand what its like to live with a depression. Yes it's hard for people all involved. But everyone understood that she was ill and yet nobody tried to help. and just mocked her. It is people like you who push people who are already down then to just push them over the cliff. Instead of standing up and doing something about it. get a job. and maybe you need some time off the internet as it seems it has become a part of your world. I'm sure when you leave this world people may be happy also which is sad. because it seems like you have no consideration for anyone but yourself.



  58. 58

    Re: April 20th
    Funny how you think everyone is a reject but you! Very funny! I'm done posting for now - I actually have a life and I'm wasting time on your stupid ass - your opinion doesn't matter to me you asswipe - I just enjoy picking on you as per the fact you are always such a nasty bitch that - sadly , believes she is smart - Uh Oh - time to let one of your alter egos defend you - which one are we gonna hear from this time?



  59. 59

    I agree with many others- I've seen this same status update hundreds of times by people. I wouldn't say anything douchey like this, but I, too, would have ignored it if she had the habit of acting like this.
    The only time I've reacted was when a classmate messaged me out of the blue and uncharacteristically said something ominous- I called the local cop's cell and had him go check, turns out he *was* suicidal.
    But I also have loads of 'my life is worthless, i'm just going to kill myself' or variations of the sort that I ignore every day- it's too exhausting and pointless to check on every one of them.

    My best friend killed himself in 2006, no warning whatsoever. The people who truly want to end their life rarely make such a public statement.



  60. 60

    Obviously we have a case of none of those people actually being her friends.



  61. 61

    Re: alrightalright – All of your comments are so annoying!! Go away!



  62. 62

    she cried wolf oen too many times.



  63. 63

    Re: Tink66
    She is the worst I agree and makes up other names here to defend her sick mind - It's disgusting - and she can't take it when someone doesn't see her point of view - It's pathetic - I agree she may be troubled - saying that now I feel like an asshole for picking on her - Sorry April 20th- best of luck

  66. 66

    Re: April 20th – Because the help was never there…where she lived in Wales, (and Wales in general) doesn't recognize eating disorders as a life threatening illness. Waiting lists to see therapists and nutritionists were months long, which by then were too late. Her mother had to literally fight to get her treatment, and when she did eventually get it she had to go to England to receive it. Her mum was basically her carer throughout her illness. Ever since Lisa took her life, her mother has been campaigning to get help for other anorexics in Wales, and also in a way, to make sure Lisa's death wasn't in vain. Anorexia is an awful, horrible illness..when I was at my worst I considered suicide every day, because as much as I couldn't bare to go into hospital and put on weight, the thought of having to live the rest of my life having to fight with 'her' inside my mind was too much to bare. I can see why suicide is an incredibly selfish act, but I when faced with such despair, for the sufferer, it is the kindest option for them. I can't be angry with her for what she did because I understand…I can't speak for her family outright, but I know through things they have said, they are glad she is finally free from 'her'…and I know your comment wasn't aimed at anyone in particular, but when I read it, it made me think of Lisa, and I don't want anyone to think badly of her and think her selfish.



  67. 67

    Re: alrightalright – You are a fucking annoying asshole. Half the shit you are bitching about doesn't make sense or even pertain to the topic at hand. Why do you even care so much what April 20th has to say? People have different views and opinions incase you didn't realize that and you have stated yours over and over again. So shut the fuck up already!!



  68. 68

    Re: alrightalright – Seems like you're the one that can't stand when not everyone agrees with you. SHUT THE FUCK UP



  69. 69

    Oh, for God's sake. How passive-aggressive can you get?! Like mother, like daughter. If she didn't pull this off, it would have been some other crap. Putting it on all her FB "friends" is bullshit. Most people's FB "friends" are mere acquaintances.



  70. 70

    Re: Niraha Harris
    The ones that commit suicide USUALLY have tried so before. Just because it didn't happen the first or second time, doesn't mean it won't. There are warning signs people ignore.. because no one really wants to die.. they want help but the dumb motherfu**ers around them usually look the other way.



  71. 71

    she needed serious help and shouldn't have been left alone…



  72. 72

    Oh that's what I hear all the time - I am fighting with mental problems since 25 yrs and sometimes you just don't want to fight anymore and try to go - but don't have enough or the right pills - I don't talk to no one anymore about these feelings - not even to my doctors - one day I will be successfull and free.



  73. 73

    That's common ignorancy about mental problems from people who should be in our heads for some weeks and see how good they feel this time - they are the real retarded ones in a world where only carrier is worth something.

    I'd rather feel ok if I had one wish left.



  74. 74

    Is she does it ALL the time like they said, wouldn't that be more of a reason to go and check on her? Crying wolf isn't always good to ignore, especially when someone's life is at risk.



  75. 75

    Sounds like this girl is an attention seeker and want people to feel sorry for her. But she failed, I don't feel sorry for her at all her suicide post on FB didn't sound sad but just, "look at me I'm killing myself now everyone feel sorry for me"



  76. 76

    I had a friend like that a few years ago and she just kept sending me 'Goodbye' texts every few weeks and in the end I just gave up. She was draining and stressed my life. I can understand how her friends were. Sad she was so lost she felt the need to take her own life though. I see people all the time putting ':(' status' up for attention so people will ask 'What's wrong?'. RIP Simone, I hope you've found a place you can be happy now.



  77. 77

    Plus if these were people she 'cared' about it wouldn't be on FB for the world to see. She's write them a letter or an email. She kept wanting attention thinking she'd 'win' but who's really won? No one. She's dead…she won't be walking up in a few weeks saying 'I showed them'. Her mother's lost a daughter. Her life will never be the same. Suicide is stupid for people who aren't dealing with a debilitating illness like an illness that leaves you in alot of pain or can't function. Go out in the fresh air people and go for a walk. Get off of FB and get an actual life…experience things and you'll feel better. This coming from a person with a pain disease at 19 who can't make her own meals or wash my hair by my self.

  78. @v@ says – reply to this


    78

    Sounds like a sad case of someone crying wolf once too often. Who wants their legacy they leave others to be guilt? Suicide is utimately a very selfish act. If you don't care about others, they're not likely to care about you when the chips are down. You reap what you sow. That said, people can still be idiots, and have lots of great friends, and I could still see this happening. You have to want to survive yourself, and get help if you don't.



  79. 79

    That's fucked up. I wonder how many times she cried "wolf!" Nevermind :/



  80. 80

    I'm sure many of you idiots would have made a lovely addition to Simones 1,000+ contacts.



  81. 81

    Suicide is a selfish act! It is not up to you to take your own life. It's so sad that she didn't have God in her life and ask him for strength. May she R.I.P. - ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME!

    Re: NorthAmericans – Uhm, it happened in Britain.



  86. 86

    She did not "cry wolf." Each time she said she wanted to commit suicide was a cry for help, and no one listened. Mentioning suicidal thoughts are to be taken as warning signals, as red flags. These situations should always be taken seriously. Ignoring these situations makes family and friends seem apathetic to the suicidal person, which may even encourage suicide. Ignoring threats does not stop a person from feeling suicidal.



  87. 87

    OMG, this makes me sick.

    Re: understudy3 – you ARE supposed to take it seriously EVERYTIME someone suggests suicide, this is well known! Especially, if you work in anything like K12 education or the medical field, well just about anywhere…

See the one that said 'she does it all the time, takes all of her pills'…so we don't know if they were tired of responding, or never did respond previous times, or responded a few times before she finally got her wish. That comment may have sounded the crying wolf thing, which could be why the list of friends didn't take it seriously.

    Mental illness is an illness not a choice. She obviously wanted help or she wouldn't have posted online.

It's pretty sad that you of all people are trying to call others harsh, unkind, and bad when your without a doubt the BIGGEST bully on this thread right now. Your not helping the cause. Bullying and mocking is one of this reasons that took this girl's life (besides her making the choice to kill herself), and your just reinforcing that instead of preventing it. Why don't you just calm the fuck down and turn the other leaf.

    Re: alrightalright – Go away already, you're making a complete ass out of yourself on a thread about a woman who commited suicide. How low can you go…
