I was wondering what people's thoughts are about telling people you are close to about your suicidal thoughts. I'm doing okay at the moment, but it always lingers in the back of my mind even when I'm doing relatively good. Anyways I mean it from the perspective for helping a close friend to cope. By knowing that I am thinking about it maybe it will help with the shock if it happened. At the same time i don't want to tell just him and then have him feel burdened that he didn't respond right after i told him and feel guilt. Maybe i can tell a couple people together so they won't have the burden of knowing alone.
