I'm not really sure what I want to say about this or how to put it

But my friend has been found dead. Details are at the moment a bit confused and nothing confirmed but it's pointing to suicide

I hadn't had contact with him for about six months then when he asked for help I obviously didn't do enough

about my friend

I found out at 8pm, I'm still taking it in to be honest.

This country stinks to high hell

I dont know what to say, but i dont want to pass this thread by as you are clearly needing to talk about this. I can listen.

Darkesteyes Sat 07-Dec-13 22:01:50

11,000 people dead. Talk about not learning from history.

"I hadn't had contact with him for about six months then when he asked for help I obviously didn't do enough"

Please please do not blame yourself.. it is not your fault. Honestly.

My FIL took his own life and it is absolutely horrific. xx

thanks don't feel sorry for me though, I'm ok.

I didn't know whether to post or not but I got so much good advice it feels sort of wrong to not say what's happened.

I'm just a bit wtf at the moment, it feels a bit surreal really

moldingsunbeams Sat 07-Dec-13 22:03:59

11000 have died ?shock where are those statistics from?

ShylaMcClaus Sat 07-Dec-13 22:04:41

Oh Rose, I am so sorry thanks

How does IDS sleep at night?

GobbySadcase Sat 07-Dec-13 22:04:46

Hmm kilmuir. I have nooooo idea.
I'm sure having no money to live on whilst being so unwell he was unable to work made him JOYFUL.

moldingsunbeams Sat 07-Dec-13 22:05:38

IDS Is a stuck up idiot who has been brought up to believe that the poor are poor because they are lazy and don't work hard enough, this country is fucked.

Kilmuir they are taking people who are really rock bottom mentally and physically and knocking them down even further, making them feel even more demoralised and worthless they are giving them food vouchers and leaving them without basic human needs of heating and light.

Fucking hell Gobby sad

I knew things were very very bad.

lemontruffles Sat 07-Dec-13 22:11:02

This is so sad.

Please do not blame yourself. You are absolutely not responsible for this tragedy.

So sad that too many people feel dehumanized and bereft under this government; this is appalling. Your poor friend.
