    Well Thursday night/Friday morning i found out my sister had taken about 40 pills and was in the hospital. she has been struggling with depression for years. so i took offa work Friday and went up to see her. apparently she was sitting on the edge of a bed talking to a shrink and she went into a seizure and fell on her face, breaking her nose, cutting her lip and breaking her two front teeth. when i was there they were pumping charcoal into hear stomach then pumping it out. she seemed really confussed and was shaking uncontrollably. i guess shes doing better, i'm going to visit her today (shes in madison, i'm in milwaukee)

    so i kinda got through that, my girl helped a lot

    then last night i find out a friend of mine had died in his sleep, last weekend.and the funeral had been yesterday and i missed it. He was a great guy, very smart, and had great intellectual conversations with him. he was also an avid fan on classic rock music and introduced me to a lot.

    he will be missed

    I'm sorry to hear about this, Miller. That's shitty. While I was in school to do the job I do now, I had a few fairly good friends of mine (one that I graduated with) die and I had to miss their funerals. That sucks more than anything else in the world.

    On another note, I just found out another guy I knew (graduated with my brother, 2 years older than me) was in the Army over in Iraq. He was killed by a roadside bomb last week.

    shes doing better, i just got back from seein her, they've got her locked up in a pshyc ward, i feel bad, no tv, i brought her my laptop and some games but they wouldn't allow it because she could strangle herself with the cord. they wont allow her to have her cellphone, makeup, she has 2 magazines.

    i told them she could just as easily hang herself with her bedsheets, pull the wires off her bed, or electrocute herself, they didn't find that amusing.

    i brought her movies but they only have one portable dvd player to share between all the nut cases. i feel bad for her man, jail was more fun than that.

    Sorry to hear about your sister's attempted suicide, and your friend's death. Rough weekend doesn't seem to cut it, more like Horrible.

    Holy fuck Miller, this could be the thread title understatement of the millennium! Hope your sister pulls through. The main thing is that she wants too. Taking 40 pills is not a suicide attempt, she meant business.

    And your buddy died in his fucking sleep? Jesus fucking Jah! Drug related? You doing alright?

    That's terrible Miller. Hopefully your sister will get all the help she needs and be able to live and cope with depression.

    I'm also very sorry to hear about your friend, that's terrible. I don't want to stir up a sour subject, but how did he die in his sleep so young?

    Take care man.

    Oh, just wanted to let you know that you could talk to me anytime if you need someone to vent to Miller. This shit sucks, and I'll gladly help you out anyway I can. Just PM me for my phone number. I have unlimited nationwide calling, so it wouldn't cost you a cent. This is the same I'd do for anyone that seriously posts on the forum. I've been through a lot of shit, and have "kept on keeping on." I just live my life to help out others in need.

    he was diabetic so me and my friends are thinking it had something to do with that, I'm no expert tho and i haven't heard otherwise, but i had never known him to do drugs.

    thanks guys for all your support and kind words. i really think i just need to start being a better big brother. I talked to her for a while today and shes not quite sure what shes going to do, but she wants to change her major. i tried to talk her into going to school in Milwaukee but she really wants to stay in Madison. shes a smart kid, valedictorian of her high school, national honers society etc. so well see how she does, better i hope.
