I think I might agree with Elle a little bit here. My bestest friend attempted suicide seven or eight times within a 2 year period and I became numbed to it. I didn't want the emotions attached to it, so I didn't have them. It wasn't that I didn't care, I just wanted to stay at a distance emotionally. She eventually succeeded, and I hardly felt anything. I didn't cry, didn't shout or get upset. I did everything in a matter of fact way, from letting her other friends know what had happened to 4 hour interviews with the police about it. People called my cold hearted and a-emotional, but I knew that wasn't true, it was that I couldn't deal with it.

Through therapy I've dealth with some of the issues surrounding that time, but I still never show emotion. I think we're all different and to a certain extent we have to accept how we deal with things for the moment, even if we want to change them in the future.

I hope Shorty is OK, and that you are OK. x
