ugh. i just have not been feeling too awesome lately, and so i haven’t been posting anything.
at the end of the school year, three months ago, i had a friend who almost committed suicide because of problems with his roommate. he called the suicide hotline and made it through. he is doing better now, but that was incredibly scary.
now, three months later, the end of summer, another friend of mine has been considering to attempt suicide. she looked up how to do it but told our mutual friend that she was not brave enough.
i don’t understand why she considered doing that, or why she still wants to. she does not care about a lot of things in life. i think she is seriously depressed, and still suicidal despite not doing anything yet.
i don’t know what i can do for her. for a long time i’ve supported her and tried to be there for her, but this goes beyond what i can do. i feel helpless.
i know if i go to the school psychologist, she will tell me she can suggest my friend come in, but cannot make anything happen until she actually makes an attempt.
i need help. i don’t know what to do, but i want my friend to be safe.
