I'd like to reiterate that if a friend or someone else you know talks about Suicide in front of you. SAY SOMETHING TO SOMEBODY, PREFERABLY A PARENT! And do this quickly. My best friends brother took a bottle of prescription sleeping pills with zero tolerance. He told the girls there that he was killing himself, leave him alone, and don't call the cops. (why he said something bothers me because I wonder if he was looking for someone to give a shit).
So they did just that...called him in dead later. I'm not sure if they even got into any trouble over it. But they could have saved his life with a call. DONT take threats as "ugh, quit being so emo". People don't usually talk about Suicide aloud really unless they've got problems, to the contrary of what most people say. 'if they talk about it all the time, they're just scaring you for attention' Don't take a chance, not even a little one.
If you know your friend is in the act of suicide, while speaking to you ex. I'm takin' bottles of pills, talk to me till I go. Keep them on a cellphone or keep texting, there with you if you're with them personally. CALL 911 FAST! Your friend may be upset with you for awhile, but it's better than dead. And they'll get some help that they need, and eventually realize you saved their life.
Too many teenage suicides, so I feel I need to throw that out there. Keep it in your head please! When you're gone, it's forever. I don't know that it is in fact a 'better' place, nobody knows really. And what is left behind are people still alive wondering, why? Guilty forever because they wish they could have done something.
