    I have known a woman that committed suicide. she died last year. She left behind her 11 year old son. The child had no dad either:sad: It's awful. It was such a shock because she hadnt even been depressed.

    Sadly. I've known quite a few. You sort of get used to it after a while when most of the people you know, you met through your parents psychiatric hospitals...

    ....yesterday a year ago, and he was my best friend :(
    And he had been a great support for me for the last one and a half, two years of his life.
    And while I, and lots of his friends, his brother whom was like his best friend,
    knew he wasn't doing well we never expected him to kill himself :cry:...feel so guilty about it, and yeah, I know I couldn't probably do a thing, but it just isn't fair.....

    My brother killed himself. I identified his body when I was 20 yrs old he was only 22 ( where were my parents? thanks again mum and dad) He jumped from a viaduct onto a road when I was literally only hours away from going to help him. (ref my post in welcome forum antone been here?). I like to think he really meant it but I think of his terror as he fell. I am older now and 22 seems so young he must of been terrified. I can remember the jury in the coroners court looking at pictures of his injuries and the shock and horror on their faces. I kid myself sometimes that he died instantly but the human body is so strong. The thought of him lying in that road so broken and alone......................I wish he landed on his head at least it would have been instant then. When and if I go I ( it hangs in the balance you'll understand that I'm sure) I shall go a long way away or make it look like an accident.............R.I.P. Rick missed and loved as much today as ever........I pray you found peace.................

    one of my best friends commited suicide 4 years ago by the only full proof method, i knew he was hurting but didnt know how much.
    if i knew i may have been able to save him, miss him still.
  11. I was shocked at first because I hadnt talked to him since high school ( 2 years ago), he was a twin too which was kind of suprising. But I was really really pissed off because i went on facebook and they had a special page for him and there were a lot of people who said he told them he was going to kill himself. It was obvious by his last blog what he was thinking as well ( i wasnt friends wt him), I wish i had known :-( There were SOO many people that "cared so much" AFTER he was dead. It would have only taken a second to have been like "whoa, that post scared me, are you okay?" or someone could have invited him to hang out. I am most angry I guess because they are suppose to best friends with him and they let him hurt himself and finally kill himself over a girl! I stopped wanted to commit suicide thou (for like a month)!

    I've known three people who have committed. When I was at school a fellow pupil who's parents both worked for the Samaritans. About 15 years ago a guy I knew but not closely and 5 years ago another friend. He had always had black periods where he would isolate for a few weeks. People always tried to help him with this but he would always say that he was ok and had just needed a bit of space. In all 3 cases I saw how devastating the effects were on the people who knew them.

    My closest friend. I'm glad he doesn't have to be here anymore. I can't blame him, I'm the only one who bears responsibility for his death. It hurts not to have him here anymore though...

    Wow looks like knowing someone who killed themself increases the chances of suicide significantly.

    I've never known anyone personally who's killed themselves. I know someone who attempted, but we weren't great friends.
