And then my friend decided to kill himself.

Well, I'm not sure. I'm awaiting a text from him. He won't answer his phone, but he's answering texts... sort of.

See, one of my friends got a facebook message from him saying he knew it wasn't getting any better, and that it wouldn't, and that he was sorry, and she was the only person he felt he could trust, and tell everyone I'm sorry and ect. The basis of a suicide note. Good times!

Ugh... I have to be awake for work in five hours I don't need to deal with this!!!

Locking comments

PS: I have received conformation that he's still alive. For now. He's feeling very alone... I want to go to him, give him a hug...

But he's in  Newfoundland  Toronto

For two weeks...

Ok, so, he's promised to go straight to sleep and text me when he wakes up.

Un-locked comments. Does anyone have advice for me?!?!?! Like, do I push him to see someone like he's been saying he wants to? Should I let him talk to me? Should I force him to talk to someone? I'm at a loss...

Definitely push for him to see a professional therapest/councilor/whatever. That's what they're there for.
Let him know that you're always willing to let him talk to you (assuming you are), and don't be afraid to give advice to him about making his situation better, if you have it. I've heard that it's a bad idea to tell someone 'I know what you're going through' or similar, unless it's the exact same situation. Just a thought. Encourage him to talk to other people... whatever he can do to strengthen his bonds with the people that he cares about and that care about him.
Also maybe let him know about the suicide hotline.
I hope all goes well!

*Hugs* I have no advice. But I hope it turns out okay - for you and for him.
