So I was talking to some girl trying to help her out with her depression. Well tonight she feel off the deep end and got really bad. She took a whole bottle of pills. Her mom and cousin called 911 and rushed her to the hospital when she stopped breathing. I can't help but feel bad like I could have done something to stop this. I don't know how to feel right now.

hi quietly cries,
am sorry that this happened. it is hard when you have a connection. don't feel bad, obviously this person was in a very bad place. i would suggest that what happened was most likely her way of crying out for help. yes it is sad that this what happens sometimes. jamie

I am sorry your friend was in such a bad place.  I do hope she recovers.  Please do not beat yourself up. You were being a good friend.

Hi Quietlycries,

Please do know that when somebody decides to do something like this, there is nothing that you can do to stop them. They are goint to find a way one way or another. I have known many people that have committed suicide and I have learned that once they put there mind to it, they are going to do it no matter what anybody says or does. So please quit blaming yourself. You did nothing wrong. Just be thankful that there was somebody there to get her to the hospital.

You can still be there to support her. But don't get the notion that you will prevent her from trying again. Often people like that do try again. Some don't, but from my experiences, often many do. They just for some reason don't want to live.

Know that my thoughts are with you and that soon you will be able to see her again. Take care my friend.

Hugs, Karen
