so, a friend of mine has gotten into some academic trouble lately and has come to the realization that his life's a joke. my friend cries sometime because he just wants to end it all because he knows his life has been a failure up to this point and doesn't want to deal with anymore disappointment. sometimes my friend just wants some harder drugs or a gun to fix his problems. he said he has thought about seeing a doctor but doesnt know if that is really necessary. any tips to help my friend through this rough patch?
