I got a phone call last night that a friend of mine tried to kill himself. his wife just left him. he called me that evening and we talked for almost an hour about it...he was so quiet when we got off the phone. i don't know what to do. i feel like i failed him. i tried to help him when we talked. i listened to him to him talk and his fears...i tried to be there for him. before we hung up, i asked him to promise me not to do anything stupid. he told me not to worry, he wasn't going to "get a razor blade and slit [his] wrists or anything." well, he didn't do that...he's diabetic and he od'ed on insulin. he sent a friend an email which prompted her to call him. after sending the email, he had gotten on a suicide hotline and i guess through that the paramedics were called. my friend called while the paramedics were there and they told her they had him stabalized and were taking him to the hospital. that was at 130am.
i don't know what to do now. i feel like i failed him. did i say something to him that prompted this? did i not say something i should have? should i have not hung up? i don't know. i'm scared and i don't know what to do now.
