Friendships Last Forever


14 Sep, 2015 03:11 AM

It was karate that night, and I enjoy doing it every Thursday. I met a new student that night, however. The moment we said our first "hello," to each other, we knew we would be friends. Possibly for life, and beyond. I feared my parents would never accept him, however, so we decided to keep our friendship a secret from my parents. We got along very well, and we hung out a few times at his place. I had a cover for it, though, so my parents never suspected a thing. We became the best of friends, and nothing could break our bond together.

But one day, me and my friend went out drinking with a few more of our buds. I was a smart kid, so I knew that I shouldn't drink too much, or I would get a really bad hangover the next day. It wasn't very tasty anyway. He became very drunk and decided to go get a random girl and do what a guy does best to girls. I stayed out of this, and called a taxi so I could get home. I didn't have a license, and even if I did, I could be in some trouble if I drove.

Not long after, I was at my home, and he started to text me. "hey dood, y did you not stay? Were partyin really hard over here!" He texted. "I have some things to do here. busy man, you know" I replied. "oh, i know you well. you are just gonna b at home playn them videogames, right? u need to get out more often!" "fine, you caught me. I would really like to level up my character more." "fine, i will leave you @ it. but you are missin out, the girls here are really hot!" he concluded. But I thought to myself that maybe I do need to get out more. I mean, my skin is really pale and all, so I guess it wouldn't hurt.

The next day, I called my friend and asked him if we could go out camping in the wood one time. He liked the idea, and we went to get our stuff ready. I told my mom that I was going out for a sleepover at a friends place, and was taking a taxi. She gave me some money for it, even though I was going to be picked up a block down the street. So when we got there, we set up our tents, built a fire-pit, and did the things we would do when camping. It was a very fun time.

It was tick season, however. And we didn't know.

So a day later, I had gotten a message from his mom saying that he is very ill and is in the hospital. I rushed to the hospital to see my friend. When I got to his room, he seemed to be very tired. I asked him how he was feeling, and he said he was very tired, and had chills going through his body. The doctor said he just had a bad case of the flu, and it would go away in a few days. I had a feeling it was something worse than that, and it was obvious it was not the flu. I asked him if I could check his upper body, and he said sure. I checked his torso, but it was fine. When I checked his arm, however, I saw a circle-ish rash with a ring of a rash around it. I felt it and it was really warm.

Those doctors were ametures. I told them he likely had something more than a flu, and they came up with every excuse possible that it was just the flu. As time went on, the symptoms became worse and worse. Eventually, he started to get severe headaches, loss of control of muscles on his face and dizziness. So I looked online for any diseases that could have caused these symptoms, and the first thing I found was Lyme Disease. I was scared, because I knew that Lyme Disease has the potential to be deadly. I told the doctors treating my friend that I think it could be Lyme Disease, and he needs help from someone who can handle it. They told me there was no possible way, and it was just the flu.

A month or two later, I came back to check on him. The symptoms were worse, and I was told that he had gotten arthritis. I told them that there is no possible way this could be the flu, because the flu doesn't last this long. They took my comment into consideration and called a specialized doctor. It would take a month before they would get there in time. But, at this point, my friend had an elevated heart rate, and it got harder and harder for him to breathe.

In the end, the doctor did not come fast enough, and my friend lost his life because he did not get enough air through his body, and the symptoms prevented his muscles from working well enough. All these years, and I have never told anyone that I thought it was my fault for challenging him and myself, and I also thought it was the doctors fault for not noticing the symptoms fast enough. I had blamed everyone about his death. I still remember the times we used to share, and I will never forget.

After his death, I attempted suicide by jumping off of a building, so I could be with him once more. But I was convinced not to. That was 5 years ago, and I have made up my mind now. My parents died from a car accident, and college has not worked out for me. I have a low paying job, and only enough money for food, a small apartment and basic furniture. I have checked many dating sites, and there has not been one woman who has loved me. You can't change my mind now, and I am through with my choice. I will finish what I have started 5 years ago, and I will jump. I will hit the ground and be gone from the world. I will see my friend, and we will be happy once more.

Our friendship will last forever.

What ur going thru is very tragic,devastating n traumatising but its stil no gd reason to giv up on life! Yeah its been hard, your frnd dying n ur lyf taking a turn 4 the worst is such an ill fate. But get this,u tried to kill urself once bt u survived knw why? Because God gave u a 2nd chance,not to make ur life harder bt to make u stronger. Why r u so hang up on the gloomy side of life, depressing urself over n over with such sad thoughts,is that what ur frnd wld have wanted u to do? Doing a remake of ur suicide 5 yrs back? What hapens if this time ur wish does come true,will ur problems b solved? Ever thought about whr u'l go after,coz there some dark places that even death fears.
Think twice,thrice n ten times more b4 taking ur God-given life! It's precious no matter what ur going thru. There are some who wish they had ur life coz what they r going thru is even far worse. So take heart,b bold n face life with a fist if u have to,concentrate on what u love so as to get those suicide thoughts out of ur head. Choose to make it or make it! And dnt 4get to pray as I wil pray 4 u as wel,for God cares n He's just waiting 4 u to ask bt dnt expect him to rescue u like superman,HE'll b ur strength al through n if ur patient enough to endure ur pain,what lies ahead is a better n brighter day 4 u beautiful creature. No matter what I go through,GOD IS MY STRENGTH! Will u let Him b urs? Hop u dnt mis out on al that's waiting 4 u at the end of ur dark depressing tunnel 4 it shall b wel as nthing in this world is permanent! As Jesus said, 'Get up and walk!' So i also tel u too,HE'll surely heal ur broken heart!

What? No! Don't! Think of the different people you know. And if you can't, think about this: If your friend is watching you right now, would he want you to do that? Really think about it. Would he, as his own self who cares for you, want you to end your life, and with it all the chances you could get to make a difference in someone else's life, to see him again, when you will be seeing him again some day?

You're a pure idiot. There are
people in a worse situation, and you're just gonna give up like that? You lack so much in perseverance. People work hard, and with that, they survive in life. You may not have the dream life you want, but at least you have food and shelter. You're such a f*cking b*tch for not being thankful for everything you have. There are definitely people who find you important, and they'll be devastated to find out you commit scuicide. Man, everything was made for a reason, and you'll find out why you were put in this world. I wish you the best luck in life, and I hope you find a great partner who gives you happiness. And you shouldn't feel guilty for you friend's death; it wasn't your fault, so don't worry. I'm sure he wishes the best for you too, so don't you dare die.

Really? This is some pretty serious shit if it isn't made up by some troll. You're saying not only did you find a rash on him and they wouldn't listen, but they kept him in the hospital for more than a month still thinking that it was the flu? Couldn't you at least get them fired or taken to court for something like that?

I know how it feels, I am drifting away from my best friend. I have horrible things going on at home. and my friend isn't helping. When I cut, she ignores me, and when I talk about suicide she doesn't give a shit. I love her more than anything in the world. And she treats me like dirt. I have warned her I will kill myself if she stops caring about me, but she doesn't care! I have nobody that loves me. I have too much acne, I am fat, AND I am a fucking lesbian. What the hell am I supposed to do. I have a crush on her but she doesn't know, and if she did know she still wouldn't care! I WANT TO DIE TOO!

Look... I feel you! Life is rough, people sick and don't care, but you can stay strong. I have doubts too... I go down DARK tunnels and think that God made a mistake creating me... but I am still here! I have friends who NO matter what I do its wrong... I have thought about suicide more times then I can count! One day I came home from school and almost swallowed all of my pain pills! People say that others have it worse... but how??? Just know that I believe in you and know how your feeling... but u can make it!
