My friend told me today that for the last couple of weeks he's had thoughts of wrapping his car around a tree.. He says he's stuck in a rut with things only getting worse. I live with him and his family so I see the vast majority of what he's talking about and it is a lot for him to deal with. Normally I'm the one dealing with suicidal thoughts. I'm bipolar and have gone to him multiple times for help and he's always come through for me. I want to be able to help him but I can't find the words that he needs to hear. No matter what I say he has a rebuttal for how his life could be better or how he'd be better off dead. He had forced me to go to a doctor so I could get back on my meds and they have helped. I want to do the same to him, because I'm sure they could help him too. But he doesn't have insurance and can't afford a doctor. I want to give him money to see one, but one of his problems is he hates having to rely on people [his father-in-law is currently paying the majority of bills in our home because neither he nor his wife are able to find jobs] and I'm scared my offer will just make things worse. What can I do to help him? I love him to death and, as selfish as this probably sounds, if he were to kill himself I don't know that I'd be able to handle it and would probably follow suit. But that's not why I want to help him.. He's my best friend and I hate seeing him like this.. He's such a hard worker and gives way too much and never asks for anything in return. He deserves a much better hand than what life has dealt him.
