Suicide & Depression are rapidly increasing in numbers, it's reality now... A Thread. #Suicide #Depression and #Friendship #Thread
So I went to go visit my friend, and as per usual found gran in the T.V. room alone, laughed and spoke abit about strange topics like death.
I remember I'm here to see my friend (I wanted his opinion of a guy macking me) so I end the convo with gran & ask where he is ☺
"Uyaz nawe uyofela kulela kamero lakhe" (He'll die in that bedroom of his) a Zulu expression used for "you're always in your room".
We laugh, I agree with her😂. and I walk into his bedroom and bare with me because it still doesn't feel real...
I enter with my usual forward energetic self, and literally fell to the floor like flubber as I saw his body still as a needle... Pure SHOCK
Hanging from his ceiling fan. I couldn't move any part of my body so I tried SCREAMING for gran... my voice only got "out" on my 3rd try
Guys this is "Umfana waGogo" so I feared how she was going to react... she came in and the screams and tears started, it was a mission💔.
To hold her still, and calm her down so I can leave to go ask for help... lapho I'm also in a state, & sisobabili 😭💔
Asking for help from the neighbours was also a bitch because It hadn't registered and I couldn't speak it that my friend is dead... Hard AF
But the state that I was in, the non stop flow of tears, my weakness and pointing to the house, managed to do the trick... I was a Mess😭💔
I got help, and we got him down, typing this my hands can still feel the lifelessness of his body, it wasn't fully cold, but it was cold..
Parts of his body were turning purple, he had scratch marks around the rope that clung to his neck, did he try stop it?? 😭💔
I'm not going to go into detail as that's not what this Thread is about, this Thread is to open your eyes up to the problems your friends💔
Face... don't ignore your 6th sense, if you call a person a friend, trust that when ur gut says "they lying they not ok" know that you're...
Right... investigate or comfort, if you notice a change in patterns and character, investigate... try atleast.. it could've saved my friend
When a friend says they need to talk, don't brush them off, listen... We ALL have a hole now because he left no letter, it hurts... 😭💔
But you guys can still help, save a life, by being aware, by caring and by not taking any moment for granted... I'm at a loss.. 💔😣😭
