have you ever had a suicidal friend? i think i have one. I love her but sometimes I don't know how I could cheer her up anymore. She seems to be enjoying wallowing in sadness. especially after a break up. its been months since she has broken up with her boyfriend of two years. i dont know if I'm overreacting or what maybe I'm just worried. We are not the kind of bestfriends who talk everyday but we can call on each other anytime and I'm usually the one who does. Her mother and sister finds her depressing. I've given her inspirational books, hope she reads those. We are so alike in many ways except that i'm more cheerful i think.

i am so sad to hear your friend heart broken case. i got the bad experience too and had broke up with my first boyfriend. He is the one who initiate to start relationship first and also the first one to request for broke off. i could not accept that and i was sad for 1 year. during this period, luckily my friends accompany me and help me to get up. i felt that i grew up better after this incident. i am glad to meet a better boyfriend and we are planning to get marry this year.

i have one friend also who tend to end her life after a break up and what i did is to talk with her, give her some advice..but not only me who is concern with her o she also has soem friends.so, everytime me and my friends went out or went to a beach i would call her and invite her so that she will not think of her problem anymore that make her depress.

i had one guy friend in high school that had attempted to cut his wrist several times because she was dumped by the girl he liked. At that year, I transferred school, so I always worried that he might attempt to cut his pulse again. every after school, he calls me and we talk for couple of hours. my father often get annoyed that I stayed on the phone for so long that others can't use it. but after a couple of moths, he started to open up and be friends again with his classmates and good thing, he recovered from it.

It would be very helpful to talk some sense into her that her break up with her BF is not as heavy as a problem than those married couple who try to resuscitate a dying marriage. Take her out more often and see what happens. If all efforts fail try to seek professional help.
