I've thought about it a few times but never could do it. I went to a therapy group years ago with people who had various mental illnesses and I quickly found out I wasn't as bad as I thought I was. I think about them when that thought comes back

Yes, I went through the same thing when I was 13. The only difference was that I had planned to end my life with a knife instead of a gun. I only dropped it when I heard the sirens. If they hadn't arrived and my mother hadn't called them, my throat would have been cut open within the next few seconds. Your friend will be in my prayers.

I've considered checking myself into a mental hospital. Always been scared thru wouldn't let me out.

I would definitely not allow guns in my house. If her parents care about her they shouldn't at least get a safe

I did that bower, and it saved my life. I’ve been told that you can go to an emergency room if you feel suicidal too.

Yes, I know it's an option. If things ever get really bad again I will probably do it.

Trioda, my mom committed suicide with a shotgun blow to the head when she was 30 and I was 20 and 8 months pregnant.

We have another SOH member whose hubby just committed suicide with a gun.

I’ll be praying for your friend. The best thing you can do for him or her is just be there....don’t try to find the right words—-there are NO right words. Just let them know you care.

4J, I’m so sad to hear your story as well😟 that must have been horrible for you, and pregnant to boot.
Well, hope you’ve healed as best you can.

Thanks, Louder! That was 35 years ago. I’ve healed, with God’s help.

But I couldn’t attend my mom’s funeral because it was several states away and my doctor’s advised me not to travel. It was tough. My father passed away only 3 years later, and again, I got no closure, as he was buried out of state, with only my hubby, myself, and my brother in attendance.

Suicide confuses the heck out of me.
To have no closure, 😔, must have been awful.
You’re so encouraging. I love that about you!

Yeah, you’re not the only one it confuses. You wouldn’t believe the number of times someone that didn’t know what happened asked me about my mom, and how she died.

You could hear a pin drop when I told them. Conversation ender, for sure! Lol

Thanks so much, Louder! That means a LOT to me. I feel that God has called me to help those that are in pain, because I can understand their pain, having been through so much myself!

I'm so sorry for your loss, 4JC. Nobody should ever have to go through what you went through.

Thanks so much, Glux! I really appreciate that!

I just now scrolled back up and see I have a typo. My mom was NOT 30 when I was 20! LOL That was supposed to be 39!

Your friend is lucky to have a friend who cares as much as you obviously do. You can ask her how she feels you can help and just be there for her. Remember to take care of you if/when you try to give her support. It can be emotionally draining.

I had a classmate that killed himself but I’ve never been THAT depressed. I thought about suicide once it was more as part of a temper tantrum.
I can’t imagine going into a mental hospital. Hope they are better here than in Russia.

Someone close to me is going through something very similar. It's hard, but you gotta hang in there and let her know you're there for her no matter what happens

Try your hardest to make a connection with your friend. Try to explain that as bad as everything seems to be at the moment they will look back and be thankful that they persevered. Is there a religious connection between you and your friend? God Bless you, I will pray for your friend.
