My friend just committed suicide!? - July 21st 2012, 07:56 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of death or grieving, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

My best friend from Elementary (I'm now in 9th grade) just committed suicide, I don't know why she did it, she seemed so happy with every thing, I can't think of anything to write and I'M FREAKING OUT.

She had friends and all and I don't know why she would kill herself, please help me!

I feel like I can't move, I'm weak and I can't stand up, she was my best friend and I really liked her and then I wake up and realize all my memories with her are gone.

Yes, I was worried and called her, her parents answered, and we talked and they explained what happened.

I'm so sorry this happened. As Alex said, lots of people act happy when inside they are really depressed. They hide what they're dealing with for various reasons (depends on the person). I don't really have much to say, but I'm here for you if you need someone to talk to

I'm so sorry this happened. It is a very hard thing to go through. We are all here for you. I don't have a lot to say except I am so sorry for your loss.

Finding out a friend committed suicide out of the blue is extremely shocking. A lot of time, people struggling with their lives, contemplating suicides (and at times, actually doing it), don't usually tell what's wrong or that they feel like killing themselves.

The best thing for you to do is form a support group. Remember, it was out of your control. Unless she came up to you and said she was considering suicide, you didn't know and couldn't have known.

I'm really sorry for your loss. We're here for you to talk to if you need us. We've experienced losses due to suicide.

I am so sorry you have to go through this.
It is hard when anyone commits suicide and when it is sudden and out of the blue that makes it even more complicated.
I am here for you to talk to if you ever need someone to just vent to and let all of your feelings out to.
You do not have to cope with this alone.
Try seeking out help from your family, friends and if necesary a professional counselor to help you with the grieving you are going through.
Do not feel bad for hurting and not being able to connect the dots to figure out why your friend did this.
Sometimes people do things and they are the only ones who fully understand why they do them. This could be the situation, your friend may have been covering up a lot of her true feelings and very unfortunately dealt with them this way.
I hope this helps and we are all here for you while you are coping with this and to help with anything else.
Take care.

I'm so so sorry for you friend. I personally don't know what it's like to lose a friend to suicide, but one of my friend's has lost several friends to it. It's very tragic. This is why I talk to my friends and I have deep conversations with them just so I know how they really feel and whatnot. I try being there for them as much as I can. Again I am soo sorry. <3 I'm here if you need to talk about it.
