    my best friend killed herself. I have been dreading this day and the saddness i was expecting has come full on. I have lit a candle in her honor and plan on going down to the river and let go of some balloons also.

    Jeannie was my best friend. She also dealt with depression but hadnt attempted suicide in a number of years. One year ago today she was supposed to pick me up at 11 am for lunch and she had told me once along time ago "if im late dont worry..only worry if you dont hear from me or i dont show up". Last year she didnt show up. I drove to her house where her car was in the parking structure...went upstairs and knocked. No anwser. I used the key I had to enter her house and thats where i found her dead on the couch. Next to her on a post-it pad was one line in which she wrote "i want to die". She got what she wanted.

    I feel like a hypocrite becasue I still have suicidal urges and have attempted it twice since her death...knowing the pain it will cause others if i go thru with it myself. Today is a tough one for me today.

    This is a day to celebrate her life. I am so sorry you went through that, and it must hurt to think about it for a second, let alone a day. This may be a good transition period for you to further accept what happened and remember the joy she gave you.

    Awww, Maria. =[ You know I'm always here for you. She's in a better place now away from all this pain, even if she didn't go the best way. I'll light a candle as well, for her later. I'll be here all day, and you can call me if i'm not online. I love you, and hope I can help keep your mind off things. Be safe today, and no that many people love you and care for you. I'm sorry for your loss. : :hug: :hug::hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug:

    Writing again, as I watch you on webcam. You can make it through today. You're very strong. I know you can do it. If you don't think you can, do it for Jeannie. I know she'd want you to stay alive and be happy.

    Hey sweetie. Celebrate the fact that she made you happy for the time she was here. Don't live with regrets. She is in a much better place. Believe that.

    I know there is nothing i can say anyone can say to take away your saddness and pain I am glad you are still here and know your friend would want you to be happy I hope your pain lessens in time but know anniversaries of death can be so hard. Make some time for just you today okay get out and do something that will take away or lessen the pain a bit. Can you find someone to spend some time with you today so you are not so alone take care.
