My 14 year old daughter became very close friend's with this extremely bubbly and talented girl. As time progressed,they became best friends. They called each other every night and she went to her house almost every weekend. Me and my daughter were driving to my sister's house when she kept getting texts and calls asking if it was true that her friend took her own life. She was confused and thought it was a rumor but she got anxious and started calling her friend. Her friend didn't pick up the phone. She called her friend's mom and as soon as she picked up she was crying. My daughter dropped the phone and started crying. It has been a month and twelve days since her friend's death and she is not the same. Her birthday was three days after her death. Sometimes she looks so sad. Others she is angry. Sometimes she is like a statue. She just isn't happy. I catch her crying sometimes but she lies and says it is because this TV show. She always is in so much pain. Her grades have slipped a bit and I don't know what to say or do around her. Please help...
