wow, well, iss yer friend, and if you cant help that friend, who will? depressed people dont actually think its all about them, they think for other people too, and i should know, cuz i used to be that way. and i thought that it'd be better for everyone if i was gone, but it turns out i was wrong about dat. but depressed people do think about themselves alot, but yea.you got to try to help the depressed ones, or nobody will wanna do it, and it all goes to the point of that person killing themselves, like my best friend did a year ago, and i should've tried to mentor her a bit more, but no, i was like you and said i didnt care or watever, so that lead her on to kill herself, and she did it too:( but if someone blames you, then im on the same page as u!lmao,pce out, thnx for readin....XD

You sound depressed yourself, OP, and are accusing everyone else who has ever suffered from depression of the same conduct as your friend.

OP, I've been where you are, and I am pretty sure I'm bang on about this.

Welcome to the board, Ayjey. I hope you stick around. Even though the OP deleted her post, there is no reason we can't carry on a discussion here about depression. I hope you don't feel guilty about your friend committing suicide. Usually it is not just one thing that causes someone to end their lives. It is a lot of things combined. It is years of emotional "erosion" that could lead someone to such an act. I have never known anyone personally who did themselves in. My sister is a psychologist and we talk about these things a lot.
