my bestfriend is 30 years old. she recently kicked her husband out and has went through so much. he is always threatening her etc. she has had to get protective orders and everything. they have a9 year old son too. he has mental issues. she is bi polar, plus a few other things so she is on alot of meds. she has been doing great though. she ahs been scared but ok. she rents from me too so she lives right behind me. we talk every morning and on weekends we are together all the time. about 1am i get a call from her dad who lives about an hour away asking me if i would go check on her that he thinks she might have taken a bunch of her pills. she called and told them she loved them and bye. i figure she was just upset and wanting to hear her moms vioce they are really close. i grabbed my robe , hubbys sandals and walked across the yard to her house. the lights were on and so was the tv. i knocked and she didnt answer. so i knocked louder and i barely heard who is it. i told her it was me and she answered the door crying and yelling i did it i took them all i cant take it anymore. i just wnt to sleep. i looked to the floor and there were all her meds empty. i grabbed the phone and hit 911. we live out in the coutry so they can never find the place it seems. this time though they knew i think cause they have had to come out so much in the last 3 weeks cause of her soon to be ex husband. she refused any help for about 45 mins and finally we got her to go. she coded when she got to the hospital. they have it where no one can go there to see her, call her, etc but her mom. safety cause of her husband. her mom has been calling letting me know. she hasnt woke up yet and i am worried sick about her. she had been doing so good. come to find out her husband called and was saying he would kill her and a friend of hers that had been staying with her cause she is scared to be alone. her son told her he hated her for not letting his daddy come home and he wanted to live with him etc. she just had a melt down. i dont know what will happen with the kid now. she has court this tuesday. all these people keep calling me wanting to know what happened and is she ok but when she has needed them the last month they didnt have time for her. it makes me so mad. i tell them nothing she is on vacation lol. they didnt care when she needed help, needed to go to the store, scared etc why care now. big gossips!!!! i cant talk to her i cant see her. what am i suppose to do? she is my bestfriend, my cousin, my tentant.

Oh no, at least she is where they can get her the help that she needs. I would not tell them a thing. It is amazing the people that come out of the woodwork. You will know the ones that really care and the ones that just want info. Even if you think one does care, I would tell them to just contact her parents. I really hope things get better for her. It is really hard, when all you can do is wait. Hopefully her mother will keep you updated.

Sometimes things get so overwhelming that there doesn't seem to be any other options. Give her support and pray for her are the two best things you can do. I'd definately have her divorce lawyer or whoever is handling her case ask that her son be put in counceling to help deal with the problems between the parents. As for the gossips, just keep telling them nothing and they'll get bored and move on. I wish you all luck. [b]~~IN SEARCH OF PEACE WITHIN~~ **AGAINST THE STORMS, I WILL STAND STRONG** [/b]

Hi there, sorry to know about your bestfriend and it's nice to know that you've been there for her during her most troublesome time in her life. Seldom do people do that for others. Yes, people sometimes can be insensitive and just "care" if something terrible has happened and I agree it makes us really mad. I believe you and your friend will see each other again, I believe in miracles and blessings come in many ways. And every problem has always a solution and everything would just be fine.

You know sometimes I plan to kill myuself to because I am not happy. i felt I am useless. thank God that your friend is now safe.I hope she realize something after . I haven't tried hurting myself because I have this second thought. What will happen after?What will happen to my family when I'm gone , that gives me creeps. I can't let them down eventhough I will sacrifice my happiness.
