I have a very close friend (not on DS) who I'm not sure how to help. We have had very similar experiences and are of a similar age. She is suffering greatly right now and I dont know how to help her. I know her very well and I know that she is very...I'm not sure there's a word, depressed doesnt cover it...and I know she is very close to suicide. I know she wants it more than anything. If I try to talk to her, to persuade her to get help, she just shuts off. She has stopped going to counselling, stopped seeing her doctor, stopped everything that might help...its almost as if she is slowly getting rid of everything so she can just die in peace...I dont know how I can reach her...I desperately want to, I love her so much and I cant bear to lose her...I know she has a plan and is so close to following it through...but what can I do? I'm not sure there is anything...people always tell me if someone really truly wants to kill themselves they will...but this isnt just someone...this is someone who is like a sister to me...since our friend killed herself I know it has been on her mind...but its like she is sliding away from me...and I cant reach out...I'm so scared for her...
