Snny Posted June 4, 2017 Share Posted June 4, 2017 I need some help with this. I am also planning to seek counseling as well (can't now because its Sunday). I woke up this morning and found out that my closest best friend since high school has committed suicide. I knew from the getgo that she was having suicidal thoughts and she was seeking therapy. The last time I saw her, she told me this... so I pleaded to her that if she is ever having any of those thoughts to contact me ASAP and that I would come get her. I have been at the end of my rope with depression before and would have been a great support. I have texted her every once in awhile to see how she was doing. I'm truly devestated. I'm going to a convention this summer that she introduced me to back on high school that helped me meet more friends... and I'm not going to lie... it's now going to be difficult to go there and not be reminded of her. I'm now not sure if I even CAN go. Besides therapy, has anyone been through a time when someone they knew committed suicide? What did you do to cope with it? I really wish I can ask off from work, but this week is my last week with a company before moving on to a different one... and I am going through crying spells (I am a total hard a** and am one of the last people to cry). I'm not even sure if I can call out or how an employer will handle my sudden absence. If anyone is reading this who is thinking about suicide... please know you got people who love you. Someone out there cares so much about your pain that they will do whatever they can to help you. Do not think you are a burden. Please believe in that. Killing yourself will hurt everyone else who is connected to you more than you can ever imagine. Please don't ever be afraid to reach out to your loved ones if you are in a crisis. Link to comment
