Wow. I guess that's what you get for being a nice person these days.
She should be grateful that someone cares enough to make sure she is okay. You did the right thing OP
One time a friend I knew to have suicidal tendencies did the same thing, said something like, "you won't see me tomorrow, goodbye." on Facebook. I called 911 and they kept him in a hospital for weeks. Suicide isn't something to joke about, and people shouldn't be afraid to take action to keep someone safe.
@19 Wow, I'm sorry, that's horrible. :( It's sucks that people (especially people who are supposed to care like your parents and friends) didn't take you seriously and get you help. Of course, people like the girl on Facebook in the fml don't help, it just makes others think that your just trying to get attention.
My boyfriend was clinically depressed from middle school up until his senior year of high school and his parents found out because he posted a dark/suicidal status on his email thing and a friend of his saw it and told his parents. If it wasn't for his friend, my boyfriend would have never gotten help for his depression and who knows what might have happened, so it was awesome that the OP reacted the way they did. If someone posts something like that it's most likely a cry for help.
First off, we don't know the age of the girl who wrote the status. Second, if someone does post this, you should take it seriously. This could have been a cry for help. Better to take it seriously, have someone check on the person expressing suicidal ideation, and have it be a false alarm than to not take it seriously and have the person do something to harm herself.
#5 actually there have been children as young as six thought to have committed suicide (a little girl hung herself after an argument with her mom but they aren't sure she did it realizing the consequences) as well as children as you as 12 who knowingly committed suicide. Young or not the OP did the right thing and that girl is a dick.
I speak for everyone when I say just how dumb that person is. You did the right thing. Thanks for taking action because not a lot of people would do that.
I hate girls posting stuff like that on Faecbook. And then you are actually nice and she acts like a dick. FYL OP :/
Wow that's messed up. You should def post one of those old fashioned memes (I'm sure we've all seen one on fb) with the guy who has hand up that says "kill yourself" lol :D
78-- I am going to assume you meant well with that comment. I will assume that you meant it as a "they no longer have to struggle/ be in pain". I have severe clinical depression and every day I am here is literally a small victory for me. So I understand why people commit suicide. I am going to assume you are in the same boat and your words came out wrong, I will assume you are not a douche pond. (Wow, that is a lot of assumes, sorry)
let me explain. there are situations where I could give a damn if a person is "trying" to commit suicide. If you are diagnosed with a mental disorder then you have my sympathy. If you try to commit suicide like one of my good female friends did....4 times....then you need to get it right the 5th. its pathetic. Attention is all it boils down to in her situation.
113-If someone tries to commit suicide four times, it's obvious that person really needs help, and saying "they need to get it right the fifth" is an absolutely vile thing to say. I can't believe you have the nerve to call yourself a "friend" to that person,
