Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
i have a friend who im a bit unsure about. she always saying how she wants to kill herself and hates the way she is and sez that she's fat wen shes perfectly fine and really pretty.
The thing is, she's told loadsa ppl about it and i dunno wat to think. at first i supported her and told her the truth and evrything but now i dunno cos in a joint covo on msn with three otha ppl, she started tlking bout how she was gonna die on her 13th b'day and i didnt think that was hilariously funny in the least and she sed "lol" after it. we were in a joint convo. i dunno wat to think. is she seeking attention or is there really a problem deep down? i dont usually think probs like these are releated to attention cos i know that they evolve from much deeper pain but wat do you guys think?
thanks.

    Typical 'look at me'.
    I'm sure someone will come along and say how shes masking her inner pain and all that bollocks, but these people piss me off.

    You really should suggest she talk to someone about this. If there is a problem it should be sorted out.
    In the meantime, don't pander to her whining. She seems mightily intent on letting you all know that shes 'gonna die'. Does she expect you're all going to sit back and let her?
    No, exactly, this kind of behaviour really is the pits. Emotional blackmail if you will.

    Ok, I can't say anything constructive here.

    I have a mate like that and in the end everyone just got bored out if it and when people stopped the sympathy vote my mate stopped the suicidal note so its most likesy a case off attention seeking

    Have to agree with J on this one: Yes, it is most blatant attention seeking, but your friend might well have problems. I suggest you talk to her, ask her what's up and if everything's alright, just probe the issue. If she's got issues and see's you as a trusted friend, you might well get some of the story and be able to help her. In the mean time, let her know the attention seeking is unwelcome, but acknowledge the fact there might well be problems and you hope you can help her out.

    Good luck <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Or ignore her when she starts up with stuff like that... she'll soon get the message.

    She may well want attention. However I dont think you should completely ignore her because she may seriously need help. My friend took an overdose about a year ago and I was really worried about her... <IMG SRC="rolleyes.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
