Default So a friend of mine hung himself

Shit was crazy when I heard. I was shooting hoops w/ him a few days ago. He used his goal and a belt. The general synopsis is that it was over his ex-g/f, but that is retarted. Kid had plenty of people, and was always clowning. Only 18. Any of you guys know some one who pulled some off the wall shit like this?

I used to play football with a guy and his brother hung himself from a ceiling fan a year ago over a girlfriend.

Sorry to hear about your loss.

Damn man sorry to hear.

I had a friend jump off a building couple years ago. Same shit I was with him on a road trip the couple of days before he did it. Then I got a phone call the next night saying what happened. I have mixed emotions, because I feel like he had friends and everything that he could have talked too.

Step brother hung himself about 8 years back in TX on a tree. Horrible stuff.

Worst funeral I've ever been to. Suicide is devastating. Sorry about your friend.

Preciate the condolences, and sorry to hear about some of you guys losses. It's always crazy when it happens to an individual you know. I always heard about suicide from others, and I never thought it would happen to an individual I knew.

It came from nowhere really.

He was well-liked, starter on the football squad, good grades, ext ext. It takes a while for stuff like this to sink in. I really feel for his moms. She pulled up and saw him hanging. That's crazy.

Just trying to show an acceptable side to death, you gotta deal with it, when I was 14 my friend was hit by a truck right in front of me while tripping on acid, mix that with the death of my grandmother and I have become numb to death, not trying to be a dick

Just goes to show you that although people may appear good and successful on the surface, but so many people are unhappy and have issues. Sorry for your loss. All these athletes, celebrities have all the money and fame, but it dont mean squat if you are depressed inside.

Suicide is just a permanent solution to a temporary problem. So sad.

You are though, a comment like that is not necessary at all in this situation. Yea you gotta deal with it, but a simple "sorry for your loss" is all that is needed

firstly, sorry to hear about your loss.

secondly, a thing like depression doesn't discriminate: a lot of the most successful people i know have suffered from serious depression at one point or another. i'm just thankful that they never found it that overwhelming that they couldn't see another way to get through it.

once again, RIP. condolences to his family, too. sounds like his mother is going to need a lot of support from friends and family to get through this whole thing.
