She's suicidal... - February 24th 2011, 08:25 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, 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.

I have a friend who is suicidal. She has a noose under her bed and has showed me pictures of it. Her mom saw her self harm scars the other day and threatened to take her to counseling. I know that not a lot can help her anymore because I told her mother about it once and not much progressed. We end up fighting about everything and it gets to the point where she'll end up signing out on me on messenger and I won't talk to her for the night, and that will scare me a lot because I don't know what she may do to herself when she is gone. The scary part is that I have stopped caring when she signs out on me and when she argues with me, I will care for the moment but if she signs out on me I will stop caring. Sometimes I want to leave her for good because she triggers my own self harm sometimes, but I know that she is still one of my best friends and I would feel responsible if she killed herself after I leave. She has already admitted that she hates everyone (including me). I don't know what I want to do anymore. Should I send a letter to her mother again and see if I will get better results? There are only three of us that know anything about her being suicidal, and I'd be scared to get her mad and have her kill herself then. Something does end up stopping her sometime, whether it is roleplaying or the fact she can't find a place to hang the noose, etc. She can't see herself doing anything in life and doesn't want to get too much older, and sometimes I worry that she will end up doing something. One of my friends thinks it may be for attention, but I really don't know.

if you thonk that she is seriously going to commit suicide and her parents dont care then you need to get some other type of help for her, like talking to a doctor or counselor.

We do not fear death, we fear that no one will notice our absence. That we will disappear without a trace.

Hey there, I'm glad you care so much about her and I'm sorry that she's scaring you like this. The best thing you can do for her is tell her mom again, even if nothing comes of it you tried your best to help her. Always take threats of suicide and/or self harm seriously even if you don't think the person will actually do anything. I can understand why you're getting tired of dealing with this, it's stressful and it's more than you should be expected to deal with by yourself. Please tell her mom again. Even if she's mad at you for it at least she'll be protected from hurting herself because people who can help her will know.
