"She Is Suffering" is a song released by Manic Street Preachers on October 3, 1994 and was the third single released from the album "The Holy Bible" of August that same year.

According to Richey, the title refers to "Desire. In other Bibles and Holy Books no truth is possible until you empty yourself of desire. All commitment otherwise is fake/lies/economic convenience." Nicky Wire also said "It's quite a simple song, both musically and lyrically. It's kind of like the Buddhist thing where you can only reach eternal peace by shedding every desire in your body."

It reached number 25 in the UK charts on October 15 1994.

In the music magazine Melody Maker, Nicky Wire described the video to "She Is Suffering" as "absolute shite beyond belief". The video received little airplay but is included on the band's Forever Delayed DVD (2002).
