Aww no, how crap.
Sounds like he was really serious about that.
I guess death is far more common in the world than we all would like to think, the post above could well be soon the post of a dead man.
I wish I knew him better so i could say something about him...
If he ever were to read this again I would tell him that there is so much left ahead...getting better is just the beginning of a life that can be full of happiness if you just try. I once thought that the only option was death but now I don't even let myself go there, because i realize that there is far too much I am not letting myself experience by doing that. I think it is a matter of convincing yourself that you deserve to experience life that is the hardest thing.
