Someone we knew committed suicide
A friend of ours, a very good friend had a family member kill themselves this week. It was really very sad. We got a big shock. We knew this person. We’d met them tons of times. They didnt seem like the type to commit suicide. But I suppose who does seem that type? But what I mean is they were not suffering any mental illness, at least not a visible one. They did it though. I was on the phone with my friend, she was home alone with them when they did it. She didnt know that her family member was dying though. We talked me and my friend. And he was dying slowly in the next room. Its so surreal. I even joked with her that he might be dead. Of course I didnt mean it. I told her to go check on him but she called her mom instead. I am glad now she didnt take my advice. I am glad she didnt see that scene. Her mom did though. How do you even cope with that? Those images? How would you even get that sight out of your head? I feel sorry for her mom. Its going to be tough on her. I have also been thinking about my own experiences with suicide in the past. How I took lots of overdoses. And I always survived them. I was just lucky I guess. I was helped on time, or found on time. It makes you think. What if I hadnt have been? I’d be dead now.
