My best friend is suffereing from depression. I though he had his ways of coping (poetry, music, writing) but I've never seen him in such a depressed state that he's been in as of late. Apparently he cried for the first time in 5 years today. And that really scared me alot, knowing him. I've been quite worried about him, and I've been talking with our friends about it and what we should do, what we can do. In any case, now he thinks that I care more about gossiping than what he actually feels and that I haven't been there for him. Of course this is not true at all. I havn't been trying to comfort him that much because I haven't seen him often at school anymore. And when I'm around him I'm different because I'm worried about him. And he feels that other people have been there for him, unlike me, because they haven't changed how they act around him.. However, those people aren't aware of his depression at the moment. And that kinda hurts that he'd accuse me like that, however I'm sure this is just part of the depression and I'm not thinking too much of it. His mom is gone for the weekend, but I made sure to tell him to go see a shrink when she gets back. I just feel so helpless, 1) because he thinks i've turned my back on him 2) because he must feel so awful right now, and I don't know what the hell I should do. Could use some advice.
