    She took her life on February 20 this year. A week ago I was with a lot of her friends dealing with the shock we were going through. Now I've been to the viewing and the funeral. I just feel sad that someone I tried to help succeeded in committing suicide. I spend a lot of my time trying to help people because I have had many attempts myself. In my last attempt I stopped partway through and decided to not go through with it. I haven't tried since. I am just so sad because my friend is gone. I've known this person for several years and saw them every Friday that whole time basically.

    I know the stages of grief. disbelief anger acceptance. I just can't imagine another Friday without my friend. She meant more to me than I thought. I have to go through these darn stages and I'm in the "I'm really sad..." stage. I am just so sad.

    I hate being close to people Usually I close them off...

    Thanks for reading this... I needed to express myself to someone.
