    Each and every time we find out more information the situation gets more and more complex.

    I have to go back to university on Friday too.

    How irreverent! A week should be given at least.

    Hope that you have people around you who are sustaining you. My deepest condolences!

    I don't know what to do. I feel quite numb and sick.

    We returned home at about half 4 this evening to two police officers stood on our drive way.
    They told us that it was an overdose.

    He lives at my mums and he came around to ours yesterday to use my computer etc. He was completely fine and my dad was meant to pick him up this afternoon to take him to get his computer fixed.

    He spoke to my uncle too and nothing seemed abnormal.

    I don't really know what I'm asking for. I'm just lost. He was only 22, with his own business.
    This is similar to what happened to one of my classmates last week. He tried to commit suicide by overdosing on drugs. Luckily he survived it.

    I'm really sorry for your loss. My condolences are with you and your family at a dreaded time like this x:console:

    Sorry for your loss. I hope you get answers that will allow you to move forward. Unfortunately not much can be done as people give no warning of their intentions.

    Possibly because by talking it through with people; the OP may be trying to make sense of what's tragically happened? Just talking about things can help no end.

    It's sad when people who committing suicide are sad. I don't think suicide itself is a bad act, it can actually pretty peaceful ending but when people do it based on emotions and impulses it really is sad. A simple simple Could have stopped it.

    All I can say is feel sad and then continue with life. But don't forget him, he will truly die when his name is mentioned for the last time in history. Allow his legacy to live with you.

    Good luck. Chin up. I doubt he'd want you to feel sad.

    I guess it's better to sit at home and bawl your eyes out and isolate yourself from the world. :rolleyes:

    So sorry to hear about this. I recently lost someone close to me to suicide as well. Its normal to feel a whole range of things in the next coming while. I think I felt every emotion under the sun while trying to process what had happened. I hope you and your family will be ok.
