    That happened to one of my best mate's gf the christmas before last. It's such a terrible thing to happen, perhaps even more so for those left behind. It's just lucky that my friend is a saint and his girlfriend is incredibly strong, they're great people and it's wonderful to see them get back to normality.

    I hope your friend and his girlfriend can do the same in time.

    G, you should go be there with your girlfriend...

    My best friends dad passed away back in november of 2003, and I can tell you that being there for him, definetely helped grieving, but it never overcomes anything compared to the funeral. The funeral is killer bro im not gonna lie, I started crying cause its like I lost a father...

    Just take care of her and her family...

    Sorry to hear about that. I hope everybody who was involved can recover from this in time...

    Why do people have to commit suicide anyway?

    Don't generalize. You have to realize that there's a lot of people who genuinely suffer from depression or have other problems. Some see no other way out.

    G-Lite, I hope your friend, his girlfriend and her family are doing okay. Good luck with your exams too.

    Rofl. Basic Health in Highschool should teach you better than that. People typically commit suicide because they feel they have tried every other way out. If someone gave them a way out that was viable to them, they'd take it before suicide 95%+ of the time.

    G-Lite I don't really know what to say about this other than I hope it doesn't put too much of a crimp on your friends exams and that your g/f and her family are OK.

    You're right in what you said on your blog.

    People commit suicide because they don't want to live their life anymore.

    You can't expect someone to decide to live solely for your benefit. That would seem to be selfish as well.

    Well... for the exam part.. luckily it was multiple choice so even my friend is confident he didn't do too bad without learning at all.

    She's not actually his girlfriend anymore, they broke up a while ago but are still good friends. She was crying today and getting hugs all over. :/

    that does suck. My condolences.

    My first girlfriend's dad died of a huge coronary heart attack the day after me and her broke up (we had dated for exactly 1 year). One of the few last things he had told her was that she was a b*tch for dumping me, which was pretty harsh, combined w/ the fact that he ended up dying. Needless to say, I spent a week at her house "consoling" her, and after that, it was pretty much over. I was 16 at the time.

    Why the negative attitude towards suicide? Staying with your point of view for a second, aren't all the relatives/friends selfish for wanting him to stay alive too?

    It's as good a solution as any. Eternal, non-dreaming sleep is a lucrative prospect. Living doesn't really make a difference.

    Pay attention, HH. You've just seen why people view suicide as an acceptable solution.

    bollocks i have more experience with suicide than a person should, anyone who takes their own life should think of those who they have left behind, Like there Friends or their children. Did you know For example if a person commits suicide ALL there bills are passed on to the next of kin as suicide is not coverd by insurance.
