      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

Losing a Close Friend to Suspected Suicide

Recommended Posts

Hello there, 

Almost a year ago I lost a really close friend to suspected suicide and I am still having a hard time dealing with it. They died my senior year of high school, so thier life was just beginning and now its over. They died in thier sleep, so we never knew if it was an accident or on purpose.  I was really close to my friend and we bonded junior year. I was obviously devastated the first few months after thier death, but when I started college, I thought I had a handle on it. I was going to counseling at university and spending time with friends. However, after having memories brought up from that time , all the feelings i thought i dealt with rose back up. The disbelief and just unending sorrow. I know I will have up days and down days. But will I ever be okay?

I'm going to lie to you, it's never going to fully go away. But that doesn't mean itsnt going to get better. You're mind is like the rest of your body, it will scab and heal and scar. I hope you find peace  <3

Dear Sonia,

I'm so sorry for your pain and sorrow. Losing a beloved friend at a very young age is hard. Please know grief can be a long journey, there is no fixed timeline.

Keep taking it day by day and yes, I think you will be ok. There will always be a bit of hurt inside, but, yes, we will be okay and we will keep living to honor our friends and family.

Thinking of you. Sending all my thoughts and prayers.
