Feel like Im in the wrong for supporting my friend - December 22nd 2010, 02:57 AM

A few weeks ago i got a very distressing phone call of a mate- M, who is the strongest most unwavering person I know about another friend- J. He was so scared i could hear it in his voice. We both know that J is having some issues at the moment and is suffering from bad depression and he doesnt have anyone where he lives now. M and I have both has depression and have both circled the drain in my case a few times but i have been very very lucky.

J doesnt have anyone and we were scared beyond belief

I asked my boyfriend to drive us down i basically begged him and told him the whole situation his words where "i dont fancy it" because he had to drive a similar journey the next day. I know to many people that must seem like a good reason but i just cant. I was scared for my friends life. i needed to be there. And i got no help.

A few minutes ago i explained the situation to another friend who then went on to say "Life is a bitch" and "people have to drag themselves out of it to be stronger" yes life is a bitch and yes people to have to drag themselves out of it to be stronger but what about the people who just give up the fight? like i almost did. He thinks that because he had no one around no one else should either. I wish i had a friend like me and M when i was depressed more than anything in the world because things may be different now. I snapped at this other friend because I just cannot see how people can brush this under the table. I got brushed under the table no one came to my rescue and i would not wish that on anyone. Yet during this argument tonight Iv been made to feel (both by my boyfriend and this other mate) that because i care and because i want to see my friend alive again im being stupid.

I cant understand people sometimes, it hurts that people would be so uncaring.

No you're not stupid. You're trying to help your friend J out and it sounds like some people are just being igronant. If you can't get to your friend to be there for j well call him and just listen to him add your inputsand just be there , you're like his lifeline in a way. Let him know that he isn't alone and that you and M will stick through this rough jorney we call life .

I hoped i helped in some way and yeaa i can't believe how cruel some people can be. You can pm me if you need anything else cause i dont think i get like notifications on these and i dont want to make you feel like i am ignoring you.
