Tasha J
Mother thinking of suicide


My friend Tasha was in a bad car wreak about 2 months ago. Her boyfriend was driving he died at the scene. She was airlifted to the hospital; she got to go home one day later. There was another boy in the car, 5 days later he died from drinking too much. The day after the wreck Tasha's best friend died from an overdose. One week after the wreck she went to the doctor, she found out something is wrong (I can not remember the name of it, its a woman disease) but if the medicine does not work she will die. Tasha has a 2 1/2 year old son, she is 19. I have known her for 7 years, when she started hanging out with the wrong crowd we stopped being friends. I still talk to her but not very much. I have seen messages she has written that she wants to kill herself to be with the 2 people she loves. I am writing this because I really do think if things do not get better she will commit suicide. She believes no one cares about her. I am very very worried about her. Please please pray for her. She needs help.

We're sorry Tasha feels so badly right now. It sounds as if she would benefit from talking to a caring person who is trained to help. We have three resources she could try. We hope she will contact one of them as soon as possible. She deserves to get help, and to get it sooner rather than later.

1. If she is in the U.S., she can call 1-800-SUICIDE any time, day or night. When she calls this free number, she will be connected immediately to a caring, trained counselor in her region. The sooner she makes this call, the better. (helplines worldwide)

2. If she can hold on for a few days, free anonymous crisis counseling is available by e-mail from an international charity called The Samaritans. By sending an e-mail to jo@samaritans.org she will receive a caring response within 24 hours.

3. There is a website she may find helpful, called Suicide: Read This First.

She is in our prayers.
