    I never refused to talk to him..night or day

    It was exhausting..I had twin boys at the time...

    One day, both my babies had the flu..and when he phoned me I said''I can't speak to you at the moment, I will call you back in an hour''

    In that time..he got a rope and hung himself in the garage..

    I still feel guilty!!
    What Medusa said. You can't save everybody. If somebody really, truly wants to die, they are going to die no matter what. If they are that (pardon the pun) dead-set on taking their own life, it's just a matter of time.

    I had the feeling..no matter what I said..I was speaking to a (soon to be dead).. man..He didn't want to be left alone and yet he didn't want anyone to be near him...

    He wasn't above using the ''if you don't speak to me now I will top myself'' blackmail bizzo..

    I was just surprised he did it so quickly though..

    And to make it worse, he's left you with this albatross around your neck. I'm sorry.

    I am sure others have said this to you in your life: it seriously isn't what you did or didn't do. You were awesome to this person. Their depression was just bigger than they could handle.

    There really is no reasonable expectation that would say you have to be available to someone else on demand and without fail. Seriously. You were compassionate and kind, and the depressed person ought to have been nothing but grateful (and possibly very much was).
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    The blackmail was probably just desperation caused by fear of what they knew they were considering. That doesn't help you though. It really goes back to that there is much that is not rational in their thinking. The bottom line is that healthy people cannot let their own lives be overwhelmed by another person's mental state.

    Easier said than done, though, Dezaad.

    That's why you can't let it get to you. You have to realize that you did everything you could, and he was going to do this no matter what you said or did.

    Sure. My grandmother had issues with anxiety, my mother has issues with anxiety, I have issues with anxiety. My grandmother and my mother were both on anti-anxiety medication, but I can't take it because it has adverse side effects with me, and I'd rather have the anxiety than the side effects.
