Suicide ... a call for help, not drama

Last night I received a very out of character text message from someone. My response was "what?", to which she replied, "I can't take it anymore, I've taken all my pills." 

Within a minute I was out the door, in my car, calling 911 as I headed to her house. I made it there before any emergency response did and scared her roommate to death as I banged on the door to get in.

I found this person in her room, on her bed, semi-conscious with empty pill bottles on the window sill.

Folks, this person had sent 4 messages to people, including a photo to someone, and I was THE ONLY ONE THAT DID ANYTHING.

Her roomie got a series of texts and didn't even go check on her because they were fighting. Argh!

Before I go further, she is alright medically. Psychologically she is a mess. Can you imagine being in that much pain? Can you imagine reaching out to 4 people and the one that responds is the one you know the least?

Folks, take threats of suicide seriously. People don't make threats idly, they may not follow through but if they're making the threat, something is happening that needs to be addressed.

I am praying for this person. That the right treatment team is pulled together to help get her onto a healthy path. I am praying for each of you and myself, that we don't become so "cold" that we dismiss a cry for help as "drama". There is usually a reason that "drama" happens that we aren't aware of, and it's often times an ugly past.

    I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours these days, but I never discovered any
    interesting article like yours. It's beautiful value enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the internet might be a lot more useful than ever before.

    You actually make it appear so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really one thing which I feel I'd never understand. It kind of feels too complex and very vast for me. I'm looking ahead in your next post, I'll try to get the cling of it!
