Please pardon me for barging in and being so blunt and graphic but I am in dire need of advice, and truth be told it is nice to have a place to release. My old friend attempted recently and was Baker Acted, he has been in a Mental Health Rehabilitation Center for well over 3 days, he is going on a week I believe. He lives in assisted living because of physical illness, though he is one of those people that really does not need to be there. He has mild aspergers and severe chrones.(sure I misspelled one of those) He is 21 years old and he has lost both of his parents. He recently broke into the assisted living facilitie's kitchen and took a butcher knife to his wrists. When the paramedics came he fought them to try not to be saved. It took 24 stitches to get him to stop bleeding. As a friend turning 19 on Saturday I am not exactly sure how to help him. I visited him in the rehab center and he seems to be doing relatively well. Matthew is a very religious man and he truly in his heart believes that he is going to hell for attempted suicide. What would really help me help him is for anybody more familiar with the Bible then I am to give me some advice on what to say, or even a place to look in the Bible. I even welcome anybody who believes he is going to Hell to speak up and quote the Bible. I just need to arm myself with as much as I can to make him feel better. Please somebody give some sort of help, I am just a kid that does not remember to pay his electric bill I do not know how to change somebodies life and their life perspective. While I am on here I would also like to ask something else. My friend Will went with me to see Matt since we are all friends. Will is not taking the whole situation well at all. I know he wants to be there for Matt, but I am not sure how deeply it is affecting him emotionally. Is there anything that I can say to help will cope with the whole situation? We are all so young. We are 19 years old, which according to the law means we are adults and should be able to handle things like this. In reality none of us know how to handle it. Any advice is much appreciated, and thank you all for reading this.
