Default Life is precious

I just found out a friend died in a car accident. I didn't know him well, more of an acquaintance, I'm more in shock than grieving because we weren't close, but he wasn't a bad guy. Just... not really sure what to make of it right now...

It's making me realise how short life really is, I need to make the most of it instead of wallowing in self-pity all the time...

I found out a few hours after I posted this he didn't die in a car accident at all... he committed suicide. Fuck... I feel so guilty....

I'm so fucking racked with guilt I can't even think. I could have been there for him, but I wasn't. I couldn't be bothered. None of us could. And now he's gone we're out drinking and toasting every round of drinks to him, well if we gave a shit when he was still alive maybe he'd still be here. I've barely slept, I think I'm still drunk. I can't process anything. I want to scream. I feel sick. I feel sad, angry, guilty, just totally fucking shit. It was bad knowing he died, but finding out it was suicide makes it 10 times worse. People get in car accidents. People die, shit happens. But suicide can be prevented, something could have been done, he could still be here, but he isn't and maybe he would have been if he felt he could reach out to us. I can't even begin to imagine what his parents must be going through. I'm hurting so much right now....

It's the funeral today. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't anxious. The two cups of coffee I had on an empty stomach (too nervy to eat) probably aren't helping. Maybe I should switch to herbal tea. It's his parents I'm most concerned for, and also my friend Guy who was closer to him than anyone else. God, it's just such a shit situation. Still, hopefully today will help us all put our minds at rest, remember the good times so to speak. Wish me luck guys.
