Unhappy committing suicide. - July 17th 2009, 01:34 AM

one of my closest friends is committing suicide.
and i feel like there's nothing i can do to help her.
she lives across the country.
please help me.
i don't want to lose a friend.
and i'm like her only friend.
so i would feel like it's my fault.

When you can't find your way home,
and when life gets too hard to face on your own.
I will stand as a light through the darkness unknown,
I will walk with you, so you're never alone.

You really need to speak out and tell someone! If anyone tells you that they want to commit suicide or are even thinking about it, you need to tell someone right away! Even if you don't think they really will.. but in this case, I can tell you are very worried that your friend really will harm herself.

You need to talk to your friend's parents about it. Tell your parents to tell her parents. Try to get your friend to talk to someone about it. Maybe a councelor or a trusted adult.

It sounds like she doesn't want you to try and stop her, or she doesn't want help. That's why you need to speak up. Please tell someone that you are worried about your friend so they can help your friend.

Don't blame yourself. It wouldn't be your fault. But hopefully you won't have to worry about that. Take care dear!

i would tell someone, but i'm not sure who.
she will not communicate with me since she knows i want her to help her.
and so that limits how much i'm capable of helping since i don't know her next move anymore. :/.

you can call the police for her. if you dont know her address and you talk to her online, they can track down her IP address and get her home address. If you know where she lives, then call the police for her or at least tell her parents or an adult that can help her. I didn't speak up when my friend was suicidal and she hung herself. To this day, I hate myself for not getting her the help she needed or telling someone that could help her more than i could....

Hi Kayla,

it wouldn't be your fault. But you do need to do what you can to help her - like everyone else said, calling the police or her parents is definitely a good thing to do. Even if she won't talk to you, keep calling or texting her to let her know that you're there for her if she wants to talk about anything, that you'll help her through anything, and that suicide isn't her only option and you're there to help her find other ones. And remember to take care of yourself, too.


Drown in the music,
dance in the rain,
block out the thunder,
and let the scars fade.
