While I suffer in silence, contemplate my death quietly, and cut myself when no one can see, my roommate is the complete opposite. Tonight she was in the shower crying, and I went into the shower to try and calm her, and console her. She is very open about being in misery, she loudly discusses taking antidepressants, and went to see a psychiatrist the moment she started feeling down. She actively talks about wanting to die, but that she will never act on it because of her family. I have been as supportive as I can, I have broken my wall to provide intimacy and physical closeness to hug her when she needs it, and she has cried on my shoulders. I am not sure what more I can do for her.. It is difficult for me to know how to behave, and what kind of support to give, as we are so completely different. I need silence, and to be alone when I´m down. Right now this may not have been something I needed, but I have to be there for her. Does anyone have the same personality traits as her, and might be able to guide me to what kind of help I can give her?
