Typically in cases where a person has been jilted, there is an emotional upheaval, which can take the shape of violent reactions. Lovers who have been jilted have been known to attack their loved ones, or the ones after whom their loved ones have gone. However, there are fewer cases where people attack themselves, causing harm to themselves; this is because of a strong feeling of despondency, hurt, and a feeling that there is nothing left in life. Sometimes however, they do things which seem totally weird to others, like this young Indonesian man who cut off his own penis and threw it down a well. He wanted to commit suicide, but was saved; however, since his cut-off penis could not be found, doctors could not reattach it (link to article):
Any hopes of reattaching the severed member were dashed after the 19-year-old threw the appendage into a well and it could not be found by residents of Bantasari village. Sugeng Budi Susanto, director of Cilacap General Hospital, said on Monday that it was extremely fortunate that medical personnel were able to save the life of the teenager, who was identified only by the initials AMD.
Though family members declined to comment, a source confirmed that AMD had cut of his penis after he discovered his girlfriend intended to marry another man. “The sliced-off penis has not been found,” the source said. “Allegedly, AMD threw it into the well with the intention of committing suicide because he thought nobody would be able to save his life.”
