Hey girls well today I found out my friend dree committed suicide last night. She works at the party store at the corner of my street so me being up there every day made us close, she would always come by and stuff... Well I went up there today and the owner, aha, had oxygen in his nose and I asked him what was wrong and he told me that this morning he found dree upstairs in the apartment above the store, that she hung herself. My heart dropped, I mean I know she was going through some stuff and has said things about ending it all and I told her that if she ever felt like ending her life that she needed to call me or come by and we'd talk it out.. She has 2 kids and I told her to think of it like this, if u can't live for yourself, live for your kids, and the next day after I said that she thanked me and told me that what I said helped her alot... But I guess it didn't. It angers me as much as it hurts, how can people be so !**@! selfish... It just hurts so much.. And I was thinking today about her kids, when your in elementary u school you make mothers day cards for your mom and now her kids will never be able to share them with her... I know she was really depressed but I never knew she would do this. All this has brought back the pain of when my uncle did this in december. Well I am gonna go, may god forgive dree and accept her into his arms!
I am so very sorry to hear about that. It is terribly selfish of her, but from what you posted there was nothing more you or anyone could do for her. She made this decision knowing that it would harm her children emotionally for the rest of their lives. I hope that you take it easy the next few days and remember that you did all you could do.
Im so sorry to hear that the same thing hapened to my boyfriend's friend over a year ago and hes still hurt by it. I wish she realized that her kids needed her and that she could have found help somewhere else... But I guess some people just cant do that. Im so sorry to har this I hope her family and children are okay
I had a really close friend of mine commit suicide a day before valentines day of this year. It was obvious that he was depressed, he didn't have nothing good going for him, except he had parents that loved him ( his mother is like a second mother to me), he had lots of friends that cared about him and he left behind a fiance'. I have known him for six years, in fact I once had a crush on him but he never knew. I got a place of my own first, so whenever I threw a party, he was always one of the faces there. We were so close, both of our families were close. Over the years, he has told me and other friends that he sometimes thinks about commiting suicide. We showed him that we cared but we never thought he was serious. So a day before valentines day, he had just got out of jail and he was celebrating his release with alcohol and zanac bars (pills), he loved those pills. He was at his mothers house with his fiance' and they were both drinking, popping pills. He falls asleep and his fiance' leaves the room to let him sleep. When she came back he was dead and already blue! He often told us that he had a feeling like he wasn't going to live to see his twenty first birthday and he was right, he died febuary 13 and his twenty first birthday was going to be april 13th 2004. Till this day no one knows if he commited suicide or he just accidently overdosed. So to tell everyone now to prevent this from ever happening to anyone else, alcohol and pills do not mix!!!!!
Wow that was really sad to read. I can't believe if she knew you would be there for her why she still considered in committing suicide. It's sad especially for her kids.
Did you ever get to meet the kids?
I also hope that the lord may forgive her and watch over her kids.....
Those who commit suicide are just as ill as those who have cancer or any other disease. They cannot help what they have done and although seemingly selfish one must understand the reasong behind it. I have lost many people in my life to suicide and although my intial feelings of sadness turned into anger, wondering how they could have done this to their family I have to keep reminding myself that they did not do this to hurt anyone but to save themselves. I'm sure she is finally at peace now and hope that those around her are able to deal with her death.
