I had a friend who killed himself. The details of how and why are very sketchy, but whatever happened it's still so shocking. I'm hurt and can't really understand how someone can cross that line and do that to themselves. Although I certainly understand how tough life can get. It's just confusing. Any one had a friend who did that?

Depression is a really shitty thing, and in our community even more common.
It's strange how there is a stigma out there as if it's normal to feel "bad" and that you're just supposed to try to do things to feel better. The thing most people don't see is that is a physical problem as much as its a psychological, what happens is that you brain just stop producing the chemicals that make you feel good (dopamine and serotonin) without that NOTHING can make you feel good, that's why there is chronic depression.
If people understood those things and just tried to be there more for people, you know? Society is really shitty sometimes, this every soul for himself thing is going to end up killing us all. We are missing love and compassion these days. Even though most of the times there is nothing we can do for a friend suffering, it is sometimes just fine to make them feel like if they need you to listen you are there.

An online friend did. We were just getting to know each other and then he just vanished.
He had told me his name, however, so I looked him one day and found his obituary and a facebook page revealing it was suicide.
I was totally shocked. He was a great looking guy but there week hints of some mental instability.  Wish I could have helped him.

I would have to say, "Apparently, yes."

As a University of Florida junior I had a very lovely, sweet girl for a roommate, but she struggled in school and went home to Jacksonville, where she had a whirlwind courtship with an older, divorced man who was possessive.  We began to fall out of touch because of our living 90 miles apart, and the odd dynamics and demands of her marriage.

A few months later I was called by her younger sister, to say my friend had shot herself to death.  As a group of her college friends, we attended the services in Jacksonville, where the younger sister pulled me aside and told me she wasn't certain it was a suicide, but there was no solid proof otherwise.

Disturbs me on many levels to this day.
