I just found out last night that a friend's 14 year old daughter committed suicide. She seemed outgoing, friendly, well-adjusted... Her parents found a journal after she died, and took it to a psychiatrist to try to get some answers on why she did it. He said it was classic schizophrenia. She must have heard voices, thought she was crazy, or maybe they told her to do it... if only she'd told her parents, they could have gotten her on medication.

It's so sad... She was only 14!

My heart goes out to her parents and to you - it is incredibly sad to think that she saw life this bleakly.

Why do you think that I am such a nosey parent? I tried suicide for the first time at 13.

They will never be the same, but please try to assure them that it was not their faults.

*hugs*

That is sad. It's hard to imagine they didn't notice anything off in her life. I'm sure they are beating themselves up with the thought of that. I feel for them. That must just be horrible.

I am so sorry to hear that. My prayers go out to her family and friends. Death of a child is the worst thing for any parent, but with suicide you struggle to find the peace because you have no idea why. I hope that they have a huge support system. One of my sister's best friends killed himself at 17, I will never forget his mom at that funeral...Oh my heart is full with this girl's parents, may they find the peace and strength they need.
