    hello, I lost a friend recently to suicide whom I used to be very close with. Nobody around me understands the significance he had in my life. I have been finding myself crying at the most random times, lack of sleep and appetite. I cant talk to people about it because they don't understand. I called a support line and they told me I should find a way to have a memorial or honor him. But I tried that. Any suggestions? I need something comforting.

    I don't have any suggestions for you, but I am sorry to hear of the loss of your friend.

    I am going through the same kind of thing. A few weeks ago a young person who I’d known since he was ten committed suicide while in jail. He always said he looked up to me as a father figure and I miss him almost like loosing a child. We were very close despite our age differences. His father committed suicide when he was two years old so u was the only adult male refularlynin his life. Having a really hard tune, crying often and unexpectedly. Will begin seeing a therapist on Monday.

    I’m so glad to see that there’s someone going through the same thing I am.. I’m so sorry for your loss and I know it can be unbelievably painful. I feel that and it comes out of nowhere on most times. My friend had killed herself without anything to remember her by. She didn’t say anything to me and my chest always hurt when I think about it. I cried out of nowhere and the grief had made me forget to eat constantly. I recommend visiting them and talking to them at their grave. It might be uncomfortable and painful but it’s like you’re talking to them face to face. There is also a meditation that helps me called Connecting to someone who passed by Mediatations with Rasa Lukosiute. It has helped me a lot through my pain. I hope it will do the same for you.
