Live Like We're Dying

My best friend is a jumper.

He is suicidal.

Every time he is faced with a problem his solution is to jump off a building. Well, that and a few other surprises.

But he has never been successful at killing himself. After all, he is still alive.

To celebrate the Holiday Season, he decided to stop eating entirely.

I should have known better. All the telltale signs were present. Raft3r texted and called him on Christmas. He didn’t reply to either.

On the last day of the 2009, I was informed of his condition. I hurriedly rushed him to the emergency room.

The doctor said he was all stressed out.

It does get tiring saving him all the time. He never learns.

di naman kaya ikaw ang reason ng kanyang tendencies?

joke lang...

wish him well though... baka kelangan niya professional help.

Raft3r said...

gillboard, Nyahaha. Hwag naman sana.

Judayski said...

I don't like that friend of yours kasi iniistress ka rin nya. Hmp, baka nga may kinalaman pa sya kaya you needed a prescription of "buscofan". hahaha =)

seriously, mapagod ka paminsan minsan. tignan mo di naman nya kayang ituloy yan. arte lang.

Jerick said...

i think your friend seriously needs a girlfriend.

Wendy said...

Suicide by starving. That I could never do. By 'that' I mean starve. Hehe. But your best friend should seek professional help. May remedy pa naman siguro sa depression nya.

atticus said...

email me. i can give you a number that may help you and him solve the problem.

email me. now. NA!

the donG said...

im sure something can still be of help. like atticus who's offering help here. i hope it helps.

Beth said...

I also have a friend like that. She cuts her wrists pag me problem siyang she thinks she cannot solve. I just can't imagine how people can think of taking one's own life without fear. Fear of the after effect and fear for Our Creator.

My friend changed na. She's okay now, khit me mga problems, wla nang suicidal tendencies. I hope maging ok na din un friend mo. Nakakapagod at nakakatakot na din minsan having to think about him. Pero that's what friends are for: being there. Take care, too!

atticus said...

i know someone like that. but instead of asking him to go to a shrink, I DID.

because for the heck of it, i didn't know how to handle the sonofabitch.

it helped that I sought help. it enabled me to see things clearly, instead of putting the burden on him, because he was too damn helpless.

sometimes it helps if we REALLY put on the other person's shoes.

Raft3r said...

judayski, Alam mo pati dito sa blog ko laging controversial mga sagot mo. Tigilan mo na yan. Hehe

jerick, Totoo yan. Kasi pag may syota yon, dedma na kami sa kanya. Hehe

wendy, Ako rin. Di ko kaya ang hunger strike. Nyahaha

ganns said...

Waitaminit, I'm not a jumper... I KNEW IT! You're best-friend-cheating behind my back!!

I would NEVER cause you stress. Hmp. *tampo tampo*

Seriously, I hope your best friend's okay. :)

Raft3r said...

ganns, Nyahaha. Hwag ka na tampo. Ikaw ang "happy" best friend ko! Sya naman yun "miserable" one. Hehe

ahmer said...

ano na lagay ng friend mo ngayon?

Raft3r said...

ahmer, I will update you with his condition on my next post! =)

prinsesamusang said...

maybe he likes gandhi? LOL seriously though, counseling is good. counseling keeps me sane. that is the reason why i haven't jumped off any building. maybe it can help your friend too.

Raft3r said...

prinsesamusang, Si Kris Aquino ang idol non! Nyahaha

random student said...

emo slut. and you, the sponge flirt. seriously, 2nd hand smoking is like that. you're forced to romanticize death over and over again.

Raft3r said...

kailangan lang niya ng reasons to live ( na kung tutuusin di na dapat). wahhhh

Raft3r said...

hitokirihoshi_kawaii, Sad but true. Hay

len said...

Save him by convincing him to get professional help.

Raft3r said...

len, Chief! Trust me. I tried. Ayaw.
