Shocking though it was for me, it was definitely something I needed to process for myself, as something "that had happened to me", selfish though it sounds.

It sounds like you're doing well with therapy and are on a good path here.
I hope your friend gets the help they need and receives it willingly. But you have to keep in mind they might not and there isn't a whole lot you can do about it.
Thank you. With my Special Brain I see her 95% dying from suicide in the next 5 years. But my brain isnít reliable. It always makes the worst scenario seem realistic. So I donít know.
