Sucks. You never know what really goes on behind closed doors or between ears. One can become angry when someone tries to throw away such a precious gift as life, one that has been denied to some we love or to us ourselves. That being said he will need a friend more than ever. In addition to whatever was going on before now he will have to deal with other's anger and with a ton of embarrassment. Be there for him.

The act of suicide leaves emotional devastation on a grand scale. I am hoping all involved get through this as soon as possible. Let us know how you are doing cause we are eager to see you through this!

Sometimes life sux, then it gets worse and there is no light at the end of the tunnel. It does not matter whether or not the circumstances bares out this perception it is real in their mind. Not sure anyone can understand this frame of mind unless you have/are actually experiencing it but if this were your thinking, how would you want people to react to you?

Like Cat and Yancey, I hope the best for your friend and you. I will lift ya'll up in my prayers today.

My cousin overdosed on purpose two years ago. It devastated my aunt, and to this day she isn't the same. She left a note to her mother, and children, to whom also are not the same. I feel for you man, but he was a lucky one. Now maybe he will realize he wants to live after all. Prayers for you, him and his family.

Thanks guys, I'm just numb right now. Earlier this year he stayed with me for a few days, he was having a rough patch and was moving back here from Maine. In the end it didn't work out here and he moved back. Then yesterday I got the news.

I have no idea how to help him. Zero.

Default Re: A good friend of mine

One of my best friends shot himself in the head a year ago. If your buddy wanted to be dead he would have put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger. That is the silver lining. Dude didn't want to die. He wants to know if people care about him and he is obviously very depressed. Best thing you can do for him is get him in a mental institution and just be his friend.

I hope this doesn't sound cold. I have just been through this but my friend died, and I wasn't really there for him like I should have been when he was alive. I'll admit that.

Tough to hear this man. I hope your buddy hangs in there and gets the help he needs. I had a friend about 5 years ago commit suicide at the age of 19. Like others have said it is tough to know what others are going through.

Tough thing for all involved to go through. As others have said, be there for him however you can, even if it's simply praying for him.

As a friend,especially a good friend i believe it's just as hard to deal with. You start looking at yourself in the mirror saying what did i miss. prayers to you and your friend. hopefully he sees he has a second chance and makes good.

Sorry to hear that man. I've got a friend that's done the same sh*t. Drugs, Bipolar, manic depression. Serious stuff to deal with without professional help.

Thanks, no he's just going through hard times, failed marriages, stalled career, those types of things.

I'll probably reach out to him tomorrow.
