That's ****** up. Please don't listen to her and seek help from someone who actually cares about your wellbeing.
#1 I agree with you 100 percent that is not any kind of "friend" let alone someone OP calls a" best friend". OP this number is a 24 hour hotline if you need someone to talk to its free and they can help you 1-800-273-8255 I really hope that you get the help you need OP don't let the negative things people say bother you. Please give us a follow-up so we know how you are doing.

If you attempted she would probably stop you and if you did die she would really miss you as a depression victim myself find someone to help you through it like a psychologist
This is gonna be down voted to hell anyway so here goes nothing. I'm a pretty vengeful person I guess like Liam neeson so I suggest that as soon as you get better invite her out with your new supportive friends and when she isn't having a good time repeat her question to her so she knows how it feels. People like her have to be in the same position to understand why it was wrong in the first place.
While I'm quite vengeful too I don't see how that could work. Depression isn't being ignored by friends and such, it goes much deeper than that. I've suffered from it as long as I can remember, it's a feeling of emptiness, random peaks of anger, going on and laying on the ground crying because that's all you can do. While loneliness is a part of it just that one thing cannot equal up to how far depression can go and take over a person's mind, it's so much more.
Right. I meant repeating the question to her so she understands how dumb of a response it was in the first time. She'd be confused and ask "how would that help?". To which a good response would be "it won't, do you understand how useless it was when you said it first?". I've actually had depression, not severely but I understand how it works and how shitty of a suggestion her idiot friend made in the first place.
That really sucks Op, depression is a hard thing to overcome and I can imagine that you feel pretty bad right now. As for your friend maybe you should ask why they would say that? and if they don't see a problem ditch them, you don't need people like that in your life.
People never care about depressed people. It's hard for others to relate and if they were depressed themselves or once before they always think they were worse off...it's human nature. I recommend a psychologist they are really helpful (if you see one and don't feel good about try another one, when you find the right one then it really helps) they aren't judge mental and give you their full attention.
I'm not sure why you are being downvoted. what you said is pretty much all true. Usually when you speak to relatives or friends they don't really know what to say and its makes them uncomfortable, they'd rather you not share. If you happen to speak to someone with depression they compare vs looking at it from an objective point so they are usually no help. Psychologists are def. the way to go.
