Friend Committed Suicide

Just got a message from his sister that he was found dead Thursday morning. 42 years old.

We grew up together and still exchanged occasional texts and FB messages, etc. He still lived in our hometown, which I don't get back to very often. Looking back at our last text exchange in October he seemed a little less cheery than usual but I really didn't think anything of it.

Guys, if you're struggling in any way please talk to someone. Anyone. Please. Phone Post 3.0

Decembers always rough for me. Less sun , always dark out, cold and rainy and every other day seems like someone I know died in December , brother, friends, relatives.

I found video games and tv get me thru the winters quicker. Phone Post 3.0

Same here , but I'm not a phone guy. I'll talk all day by text, email or any other textual interaction. If you need someone to vent to, bounce ideas off of or just ask an opinion, PM me and we can make it work. I'm a certified weirdo so I feel like I can at least provide some insight from a different angle. Any day, any time. Vote up for yossarian for reaching out. Phone Post 3.0

VTFU

This is why I made the thread. I appreciate the condolences but truthfully there are probably dozens of people more deeply affected by my friend's passing than I am. I just think it's important for people to know that there are resources out there. Please take advantage of them. Phone Post 3.0

Sorry bro. That's terrible news.

42 is my age and it's scary to think of someone's life ending while there's potentially so much more to live.

I'd rather take the long road to see how things turn out in the end. Phone Post 3.0

Damn, I'm sorry for your loss. I lost a few friends from high school a few years back to suicide. And as others have said don't different in silence reach out and talk to someone it will help. Phone Post 3.0

Sucks man.

Depression is a very serious illness that people just don't take seriously enough unfortunately.

Imagine waking up everyday and only seeing shades of grey when its only sunshine around you. I must imagine that's what severe depression must feel like.

Sorry for your loss man. Phone Post 3.0

Sorry MM. I have a friend who's struggling and even with that knowledge it's hard to reach him.

Hope you are all doing okay. Phone Post 3.0

It's easy for people who have never experienced such a low to judge someone who takes or attempts to take their life. That low can't be described in words. I'm sorry for your lose man. Phone Post 3.0
