Ok my mate recentley (within the past few months) got turned down by 2 girls. One which he really had strong feelings about, not just some crush or phase. Both situations at the end of it, they wanted to be mates with him and they went off with one of our mates (and still going out with them)
Anyway, he's been really upset because of this, he felt so much for them. He was talking about wishing that he wasn't here anymore and things like that. I didn't really take that too seriously as at some point people feel like that, inclduing me.
Just a few days ago he was talking about slitting wrists, all of us disagreed with him and said shouldn't do it. Also none of us believed that he would do it, because he's not that kind of person....
How wrong, the day after that, he had tried to slit his wrists (thankfully using a blunt knife) but didn't manage to break the skin. We were shocked that he even tried it.
*Thing is we don't know what we can say to him to make him feel better, and to make him back to being himself, all happy and that.*
Have any of you got any idea that can help me?
Any posts appreciated,
