    Oh good Lord :eek:hmy: was going to suggest you visit, but that's out.
    Do you have any other contacts, i.e a joint friend, his home number?
    Because although he migh be very angry with you, at this point I would tell someone who is nearer to him.
    In the meantime, keep the talking channels open as much as you can, maybe just knowing he has such a caring friend will make him think again.

    Do you know if he's got other friends/family who know how he is feeling? Could you contact them to say you're worried about him? Perhaps you or they could make that someone is with him online, on the phone, or in person until he's out of this low patch. Have you suggested he go to ER, or to call a crisis line? Try to encourage him to get that help...

    Thinking of you and hoping things work out. :hug:

    can you get him to post here or call a suicide hotline?

    I hope that you can help him. There's really only so much that you can do though.

    im so sorry. unless you know his number/get him on here the best thing you can do is to keep talking however you communicate. keep him distracted. give him things to help keep his mind busy.
    hope you are both okay.
