Flip, Having 2 people I dearly love commit suicide in the last 3 years, it will always remain a mystery. There were no apparent warning signs and all of us were totally blindsided by the act.

The main thing is that your friend survived and can now get the help he/she needs to move through this period and find hope and a reason to get out of bed and to embrace life.

Your friend will be in my thoughts today as will mine...

I am very saddened by this news. It is always devastating for those that love people to see this happen. All concerned will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Help her help herself! The fact that she didn't succeed may mean she is asking for help. I have had two friends commit suicide also, Phitz. It is devastating for those who loved them to try to understand why. Why didn't they reach out, could I have done something different? My prayers are with you and your friend. I wish there was something I could say to help - just continue to be there for this person. And don't judge - just love!

It is sad that your friend is in so much mental anguish. My prayer is that your friend will regain a healthy balance and find joy in life. Thank you for caring for your friend enough to ask our help. Such compassionate friends are rare and precious. Please keep us updated on your friend's progress.

I'm under the impression that your friend suffers from
Bi-Polar Disorder. If that's the case, nothing you say
or do can change her frame of mind - so don't feel any
guilt or that YOU didn't say or do the right thing....
There's also a strong element of Paranoia associated
with this terrible condition - so whatever is said or
done can be misunderstood by her.
I pray for your friend - that she will find Peace. And
the right therapist, and medication she can tolerate
and take consistently....In the meantime she needs
friends like you who love and support her, and who can
also emotionally distance themselves from any decision
she makes for herself. We have no idea how she may be
suffering or how alone she feels.

Prayers for your friend and for you Phillip, and peace for everyone involved. Praying for wisdom from God for you and the family and your friend to know what to do now. Is it too cheesy to say there is always hope to hold on to when there is still life....

I have had chemical depression since my early teens. This is a problem that people are embarressed to talk about and seek help.
Please tell your friend to find a good therapist. She is not alone!

Depression is a terrible thing -- from my own personal experience, seeking help is difficult -- especially if you have had it over time -- you get so tired of being "depressed", you just want to be normal. I remember at first just wanting to be happy -- and then I gave up on happy and just wanted to not be so sad - and then wanting to feel ANYTHING, including sad, rather than this unending hopelessness. And when you get that far down, help seems so impossible. I feel for you and your friend. My prayers are with you also.

That was very well spoken. JK Rowling has said she created Dementors about her own depression. "They suck out your soul."

I am very sad and send my best wishes. She needs two things, medication and someone to MAKE CERTAIN she takes it. So often people with these type of issue start feeling good after the medicine starts to do its job, so they think they are better and stop taking it...then...

One of the ironies of my life, is working as a nurse in a psychiatric unit, and what Tunzilla said is so true -- countless times patients were admitted after going off their medications because they truly did feel better -- it was a schizophrenia unit, which meant the patients where even more dramatically affected by not taking the medications, but also had the problem with so many side effects from the meds that helped them. It is such a tough thing to have to go thru.

My nephew killed himself at age 25. He was a paranoid schizophrenic and not taking his meds. Each time he would have a relapse it was harder for him to find reality.
It is so hard to find a balance and to find acceptance within yourself and others. Don't let your friend give up! There's so much more for her to find that will lift her soul.
Mental illness, both temporary and chronic are hugely misunderstood. Good friends must stand by and show their loyalty. You seem to be that loyal type, Flip. Your friend is lucky. We're all praying for her.

My best friend is bi-polar and has tried to kill herself numerous times. Thankfully she is now on a medication that works and has a therapist who is attuned to her needs. I'll be praying your friend finds the right combination to get through this.

I have been sitting here reading every beautiful caring comment with tears in my eyes. My brother died at age twenty all alone and thinking no one cared. I too have felt that way at times but am somehow able to pull myself out of it and go on. I always try to tell myself that things will get better and these feelings that overwhelm me will end. I have many loving and caring friends that always seem to know when I need them. Just being able to talk about your feelings with someone is a big help. Please stand by your friend and help her to see that if she can just live one day at a time maybe just maybe she will be able to endure those hopeless feelings for another day.

In the times when I have felt
the most and worst Depression
I have to tell myself....
**When in doubt....Do nothing**
because whatever you do will
have an effect on your future

It took me too long
to learn that lesson

Give your friend all the support possible. This was a cry for help, not an attempt to take her own life. In my 68 years, I have known several people make cries for help. Only two that I know of really tried to kill themselves, and they succeeded, as they meant it. Just give your friend all the help and support you can.
