    And I miss her dearly. I can not find the words to express how much I will miss her.
    She took her own life just over a week ago after the pressure of some serious adult bullying finally got to her. She left a message on my mobile phone at 2am last Tuesday night oh why wasn't my phone switched on? I feel so useless.
    I will be back to complete my weightloss journey but for now...thanks to those that have posted on my thread.

    OMG, thats awful. Theres nothing anyone can really say to make you feel better, but make sure to look after yourself. Is this the same friend who tried to take her life a while ago? Dont feel bad about not having your phone on, you should feel proud that she felt she could talk to you out of everyone else she could have called, if that makes sense.

    Thanks ladies I know you are. I've not posted much I'm a lurker but I'm feeling really low today.
    Kazz...I can't remember posting about my mate before but yes she had tried before. She had been bullied by a group of people we know so much so that she'd had enough. I feel like I want to go and let them listen to the message she left me and let everyone else know why she did what she did. But I'm not that sort of person...probably why I felt I needed to shout on here. I haven't been able to talk about it to anyone really. Her parents, husband and kids are all totally devasted as you can imagine.
    The funeral is on Friday and I'm dreading it.

    You will always find someone to listen on here, I can only imagine how terriblly hard on everyone that was close to your friend, it might seem a bit soon, but maybe you could look up some support services that you all might benefit from.

    I dont know wat you believe in, but if it helps try see the funeral as the beginning of your friends new 'life' away from the people who tortured her
