Losing a friend to suicide

on may 9 th 2019 i was the one who got the call that my best best friend took his own life… my mom refused to tell me the truth about his dead so she told me that he had a heart attack a few months later i met with his grandmother that i considered all of my life part of my family and told me the whole story. he was in pain and no one knew it no ine cared i was too late he gave me hints but i didn’t believe them 100% he was in pain so he did it exactly one week before his 14th birthday. after a few months i started self harming and doing everything possible to make me feel less pain. i made suicide plans i wrote a lot if death notes that are still in my closet sadly no one read them. look here am i 4 days clean. alive and in pain as well…

I am sorry for the loss of your friend.
I am sure your Mom did what she thought was the best for you, unfortunately it might not always be the case.
I wan’t you to know that neither you nor anyone else are responsible for someone making the decisions they do. I understand that it might feel like that, but we can’t take that on our shoulders, however it is very valid to be left with pain and frustrations of not being able to do anything. Especially as the 1 year comes closer and his birthday.

I am happy and proud to hear you are still alive and 4 days clean, and to see you reach out. That is and amazing and strong thing to do, to share what you are going through.
The pain is possible to work through, it can be a hard road but possible, I promise you.

Sorry for so many questions at once, just easier to ask them all in a forum like this. You don’t have to answer if you don’t want to :slight_smile:

Does your mom know, that you know the truth now?

  • If yes, have you talked to her about why she lied from the beginning and how it made you feel?

Do you want people to read the death notes? Just wondering since you wrote “sadly no one read them.”?

  • And what do you feel about still having them in your closet?

Do you think maybe it would be a help to talk to her about it? Get answers on why she lied and maybe get her help to talk about it. I don’t know option for you but maybe she can even help you find someone to talk to about what happened and what you go through?

I don’t think you are doing it for attention. No matter what reasons you have for the feelings you have , it is valid for you to feel that way.
Have you considered showing them to someone? I mean it sounds like you want to, but have you actively thought I’d showing someone. And would you want to share them to someone specific or do you think I general would help too?

I understand the connection. You can live together and not a close bond to each other. Still might be good and compared to where you live and how old you are, it might be needed if you would want to try reach out to some professionals to talk at some point.

Even if it was that you felt criticised or what ever, it is still hurtful. People should be more respectful of others.

If you ever want someone to read them, you could share them in here. That’s why I asked:)
I am also willing to read them and talk about it if you need.

I am sorry you are going through this, but we are here to support you, both in the discord and here, and I know you can get through it :muscle:

Hey @HS_John!

I just woke up a few minutes ago and i just finished watching your video. I cant explain how much impact it had to me already. All this years i thought the best is to keep it close to me… I guess now its time to throw all the negativity away. As your friend said:“Suicide does get your pain aeay but passes it to ur loved ones.”
Thank you so so much again! I will see the book now, it seemed really interesting! Thank you again! Stay strong!!!
