Yesterday I found out one of the girls I hang out with (there are four of us pals) died. From an overdose. She was on prescription meds, and was out on stress leave. Some say that it was suicidal, some say she probably drank liquor with the drugs and made a bad mistake. Either way, she's gone.
So I've been talking back and forth with a few supportive friends. We had actually started to discuss whether or not we should try to stop someone from suicide. And within there the question came up:
ARE YOU AFRAID OF DEATH?
It came out that we talked about acceptance of death and denial of it - the results of both and how they would matter in the mind of the person considering committing suicide.
