Insomnia is also associated in this study with the nightmares and unhealthy beliefs about sleep such as the idea that poor sleep quality at night the day will interfere with the quality of sleep during the week.
Can also thought that lack of sleep will give dire consequences and causing incurable despair often associated with suicide risk by experts.
“Insomnia can lead to a very specific hopelessness, whereas hopelessness is itself a strong predictor of suicide,” said lead researcher Dr. W. Vaughn McCall, head of the Department of Psychiatry and Health Behavior at Georgia Health Sciences University, Augusta, USA.
However, the factors that contribute to suicide risk in one person must not be the same as everyone else. “For some patients, I think sleep disorder symptoms are part of the profile,” said McCall.
The conclusion was itself acquired McCall and his colleagues surveyed 50 patients with depression after the age of 20-84 years old and some of them were hospitalized. Almost every patient is also taking some type of psychiatric drugs and 56 percent of participants said they had attempted suicide at least once.
Then the researchers looked at rates of insomnia following participants how often participants thought to end their lives by committing suicide. Not only that, participants were also asked whether frequent nightmares or have unhealthy beliefs about sleep patterns.
From there, researchers concluded that there was a link between insomnia to suicide: the more severe insomnia experienced by a person, the greater the desire to commit suicide.
“Insomnia can be a cause and effect of depression, depends on each person.
