hey /adv/ i need some help. I had a really good friend commit suicide pretty recently (last friday) and im having trouble coping. he seemed generally happy and enjoyed making others laugh and smile. So idk why he did it. Can you guys suggest some good ways to help cope with the loss of cared ones?
pic related is him. I miss my friend.
I wrote a letter to my friend who killed himself. I gave it to his mom and she ended up reading it at his gravestone and leaving it there for him.
Made me feel a little better and helped her knowing how much he meant to me...
Hope it helps m8, sorry for your loss. Also if he liked dark jokes.. I'd fuck him. :) cheer up
Depression is a tricky illness, where you often try to hide your symptoms from other people and are liable to just ride it into death. I think I read somewhere that those most likely to succumb to their depression are those who are best at hiding it from others - no acting out or half baked attempts to cry out for help, just all of a sudden they're gone.
Like a dog who's got a totally treatable illness, but who's animal instincts prevent them from showing that they're in pain, and it goes undetected until one day they just keel over.
I was in your shoes 3 years ago when a close family member killed himself. Make sure that you talk to someone, even if it sounds stupid. Just talking will start to make you feel better. Sorry for your loss
he loved dark jokes, they were his funniest ones
depression sucks. im trying to talk to the people i havem and no one really wants to talk about it or even cares ti seems.
Well yeah, life in general is pointless, but it can be a joy, right? Try to connect with things, maybe. I lost my best friend in august and it's been a helluva s time without her, wouldn't wish that pain on anyone.
