I lost my best friend in November 2009 & I also tried myself. What he said was right. We need to strengthen the wish to live because life ..to be alive is a one shot deal. People who are lucky to survive natural disasters and or accidents would think back & thank god for giving them the chance to live. Find someone, anyone you trust and that they care and love about you, to talk to when your feeling down. Talking always helps and be truthful. Talk about unresolved problems & learn to fix them and move past it. Practice good habits and keep yourself occupied. Thr scary thing is being alone with negative thoughts so make yourself busy. & remember that someone, your family, your mom, dad, sister, brother, cousin, friend, neighbor, your child loves you.
