I'm trying to understand why people react the way they do when they find out I'm extremely depressed and suicidal. My reaction towards anyone else that is depressed is to help them in any way possible -- consoling them, speaking with them, trying to find answers. But I've noticed that not everyone is like that, and from my research it's not so uncommon either. My support friend was very supporting in the beginning (almost a year now), and would even call me every day to speak. But as time progressed, and especially after finding out I'm suicidal, she has withdrawn. The thing is, that she is a very strong person, so I find this odd. If she does not know how to react, it would be like her to state so directly rather than pulling away. Especially since she knows that that makes me feel worse. Nowadays, it even seems that she puts me on her sh*tlist by not speaking with me, and when I question it, it's because I did something wrong, which I still don't see as wrong. She's continuously making me feel like I'm doing something wrong. It's almost as if she's trying to find excuses to not have to deal with this. This does not make sense to me. I have a thought now that she was very interested at first just for her own curiousity, and not so much to be helpful, but now she's in over her head. Maybe I'm wrong, and I so hope that I am. Is there something I'm missing here? I really am trying to understand this to fix it, rather than walk away, because I have a lot invested in her emotionally. Thanks for listening.
