    That she says that is a good thing. Anyone who really would do it, I believe would not usually tell you. I think that she won't be able to hear you if you share your love with her...she is in a personal state of hell right now, and it will be difficult to get her out. You will need to open her up to herself, and you will need to make sure that she is feeling like it was her that did it, and not you. She must have some wonderful qualities for you to find and get her to remember. Maybe she is talented at something, or loves herself for something...anything possitive would be a step in the right direction for her.

    Here is the empathic way though. Really hear her without merging with her pain. Know that if you were in her shoes you would feel the same way, but stay in your shoes...that is very important. Your empathy will soften her to her hell, and your anchor in your reality will be a hand to help her out.

    Good luck my friend. God be with you.

    the mind is in charge: some mind can build super bodies. then it has to maintain that super shaped body, that is different than the diet to archive the perfect body, now the looses of vitamins and minerals can cause huge mood swings, coffee can set this person on sky-hi all day and no sleep soon this turns to either sleeping aids or peep pills, there is so many reasons that the world unprepared for the shocks of reality that there should be trauma centers as accessible as a public telephone booth for today people to go to and scream from the roof tops-i guess that what church do, back in the sixties they had open clinics for walk-ins, being fried in America isn't unusual today, and the growing numbers show the reasons are not just individual either, but a whole net work of collapsing security problems with democracy,the once normal world has become suspect of removing normal life and substituting this garbage as the new home to support future battle field financial needs and not address the american public as real people has gone on way too long

    Tell her that what if she commits suicide and sees that she got stuck in the situation, from which she has tried to escape, with no way out. After all, no one knows what is there beyond death. Till the time she is alive, she has hope to change herself, her attitude and may be situation but there is no hope after death. Tell her to understand this and try to cure herself from depression first.

    I am seriously depressed myself, and know how annoying it is when people try to control you. allow her to do what she feels is best, if her life has to be ended she should be permitted to do so as it is what will make her happy. But try convince her that she feels this way for a reason and to get to the bottom of it she should seek help.

    All you can do do is to offer support and talk to her family about her depression. Depression is a very serious issue.

    tell as many people who could be watching that person. always question when they are too silent, or start giving their things away. usually people who talk about it are not going to do it but can you take that chance? give that person unlimted access o you where they can call anytime and talk.

    There is nothing you can do except be there for her when she needs to vent and if you do think she is going to kill herself, call 911....

    If someone really wants to die, they will do it...
