Keep the knowledge that you’d never do it in your mind, make sure you remind yourself why you won’t do it. Because you have a whole life ahead of you. Suicidal ideation isn’t necessarily uncommon but it is a sign that something’s wrong, maybe you’re depressed or you just feel like you can’t cope. I’m obviously no expert, but I’d say that talking to someone openly, preferably in person, who you love and trust is the best way forward. A family member, a close friend or even a doctor. Thoughts of suicide, even if you don’t think you’ll ever do it, aren’t to be taken lightly. Remind yourself that you have a lot to live for, and reach out for and accept help, because the fact that you’re telling me about this suggests that you do want help. I’m no expert, I’m not in a situation where I can give clear advice, but keep yourself active, remind yourself people love you, remind yourself that you’ve got a lot to live for and talk to someone.
Sorry I’m not of much use, but if you ever think about acting on your thoughts, ring a hotline or tell someone who is in a situation to help you. -Leanne xx

Personally, I think you should. If your friend checks up on you in front of him then he’s pretty certain to notice something’s up and think you’re purposefully hiding something from him. I think that 2 months is long enough for you two to be close enough to be able to talk about it properly and I’m sure that if he’s worth it he’ll understand. The other option is to ask your friend not to mention it in front of him, but either way you are going to have to tell him eventually as I’m sure it’s a big part of your life so he deserves to know. He might even be able to help you. Good luck, and let me know what you decide to do in the end? -Leanne
