I was out last night with some friends for a few drinks. One of my friends in particular hasn't been in the best of form these past couple of months. We were chatting and i casually mentioned that i thought he hasn't been in the best of form lately. I was staggered by his response. He told me he was totally down in the dumps and feeling depressed out of his mind. Sure we've all been there i tried to assure him, but he insisted that he felt he had nothing left to live for. I was shocked to say the least. I didnt know what to say to him after that but i kept chatting to him trying to make him see sense and that there was always an upside to life. I'm seriously worried about him and at this moment don't have the slightest idea what to do.
It was an anniversary of another friend of mine who tragically passed away 3 years ago on Saturday and the combination of drink and my other friend being so depressed put me into a foul humour all night. It makes me think of how precious life is and how some of us feel there is no alternative when things are bad. But there is always an alternative and theres always someone to turn to. For anyone who thinks otherwise its a really really sad day for them
