Okay, so I have been put in a situation where I really don't know what to do. Here a little bit of a back story: My best friend (Crystal) lived with her younger sister (Amber) while their parents were working in Europe. Amber is the type of person that craves attention, even negative attention, and she would argue with Crystal all the time. Finally, Crystal got fed up with the arguing and moved out. Amber's response was that Crystal didn't love her and that she was leaving her and she didn't want to be her sister anymore. Crystal tried to explain that she was leaving her, she just couldn't live with her (but if you knew Amber, this assurance would be pretty pointless). A few days after this argument, Crystal received a text from a boy that Amber had strict sexual relations with. I was there when she received the texts and basically he said that Amber had texted him to come get the pets because she was going to commit suicide. He said he couldn't get there until almost an hour later and she was sitting at the top of the stairs with a rope around her neck. The top of the stairs is high enough to hang yourself. We weren't sure if this was an actual attempt because she had waited until the boy got there and since it took that long, we figured this was another cry for attention. Crystal told me that right now she would almost be pissed that Amber would commit suicide because "she would be left to clean up the mess, like everything else." I understand that Crystal feels numbs towards Amber because Amber was emotionally abusing Crystal, but for Crystal to be so numb towards a possible suicide attempt....it really concerns me. I have been friends with Crystal for 7 years and know them both quite well. I just don't know what to do about Amber because it doesn't seem like Crystal is going to do anything. I'm just worried about Amber's well-being because she's almost my little sister too. I've brainstormed with a couple people and I guess you cannot have someone committed unless they were actually caught in an attempt of suicide? But we also have proof of the texts that her lover sent and I am just at a loss and don't know who to talk to about this. I don't even know if Crystal has told her parents (but this texting just happened yesterday). I just really don't want to stand by and watch Crystal do nothing and something actually does happen, because even in cries for attention, accidents can happen. Any ideas on who I could contact or talk to...I know I'm just a bystander, but I have to try.
