I am in doubts about your grasp on the English language but it is admittedly not too bad.

Howev ...

you are right~

the word "committed" and "attempted" will be add on to confirm the finishing act, which is suicide.
so the original word of suicide is not a finish act...

im here all day telling your buddy fatsanglung that suicide is not a finished act...

what is wrong using the word suicide?
suicide is an action before he/she survived...

Incorrect, in proper usage suicide is the act of killing yourself intentionally. The OP clearly says " before her suicide ", if she had commited suicide she would be dead by definition, not in a hospital bed. You have to say attempted suicide as the act failed, check the dictionary if you do not believe me.

Attempted is past but this action was in the past so the word applies, attempt can also be used for present and future, ie "he will attempt suicide next week".

Too true, Chinese Mothers feel that they must be obeyed or else.
