The story of his lfe

(HAGERSTOWN)

I WAS 15 YEARS OLD AND I KNEW ALEX FOR 10 YEARS AS WE GOT OLDER WE BECAME CLOSER AND CLOSER, UNTIL ONE DAY WE JUST STARTED DATING. THINGS WENT GREAT FOR US THROUGH THE SUMMER TILL OUR BEST FRIEND BECKY DECIDED TO COMMIT SUICIDE. i HATED EVERYTHING I HATED HER I HATED MYSELF AND I WAS INTO A MAJOR DEPPRESSION, AND SO WAS HE. WE COULDNT TAKE LOSING A BEST FRIEND AFTER LOSING FAMILY AND FRIENDS ALREADY. TO TRY AND FACE MY FEAR OF NEVER LEAVING MY ROOM OR TRYING TO GET ANOTHER FRIEND I DECIDED TO GO TO A PARTY WITH ALEX AND HE AND I GOT COMPLETELY MESSED UP, SO BAD WE COULD NOT DRIVE. OF COURSE HE THOUGHT HE WAS OKAY, SO I TRUSTED HIM AND COMING UP AROUND THE CORNER ON OUR STREET IS A SWIRVEY HILL, WE CAME AROUND THE CORNER AT 80 MPH ON A 25 MPH ZONE HITTING A CAR HEAD ON. KNOCKING US COMPLETELY OF ROAD INTO A TREE TRAPPING ME IN MY SIDE OF THE CAR. THE IMPACT OF OUR CAR KILLED THE DRIVER IN THE OTHER CAR. I SMACKED MY HEAD AGAINST THE DASHBOARD AND ALEX HAD BEEN PUNCTURED IN HIS RIGHT LUNG. WHEN I FINALLY WOKE UP FROM BEING KNOCKED OUT I SAW ALEX IN THE SEAT BREATHING HEAVILY, AND BEGAN TO CRY. "OH GOD!" I KEPT SAYING AS I TRYING TO UNBUCKLE MYSELF THEM HIM. TEARS STARTED COMING DOWN MY FACE AND I TRIED TO PULL HIM OUT OF HIS SIDE OF THE CAR. AFTER CONSTANTLY TRYING TO PULL HIM OUT OF THE CAR AND ONTO THE GROUND I DID, WITH A BROKEN ARM AND A MAJOR MIGRANE, I INSTANTLY LAID HIM ON THE GROUND AND TRIED TO PUT PRESSURE ON WHERE HE WAS BLEEDING. ALEX KEPT TRYING TO SPEAK TO ME OVER AND OVER AND I COULDNT UNDERSTAND I WAS TRYING TO FIND OUT WHERE WE WERE WHEN IT HIT ME WE WERE WHERE OUR BEST FRIEND BECKY HAD COMMITTED SUICIDE.SCREAMING AT ALEX TO STAY WITH ME HE TOLD ME IN SHORT BREATHS THAT HE LOVED ME AND HE WAS SORRY. I WAS SO FAR OUT OF IT I COULDNT AND WOULDNT BELIEVE HE WAS GOING TO DIE, DIGGING FOR HIS CELL IN THE CAR TRYING TO CALL AN AMBULANCE. FINALLY I GET IT AND CALL SCREAMING NON STOP "HE'S DYING HE'S DYING PLEASE SOMEBODY HELP ME!" AFTER 5 MINS OF SCREAMING I THROUGH HIS PHONE AND CONTINUED TO KEEP THE PRESSURE BUT I COULD TELL HE WAS FADING FAST. RIGHT AFTER I TOLD HIM IT WOULD BE OKAY IS WHEN HE PASSED.I CRIED SO HARD AND SCREAMED AT HIM HE HAD TO WAKE UP BUT HE NEVER DID. I LAID NEXT TO HIM TILL THE AMBULANCE CAME SINGING OUR SONG AND CRYING.COVERED IN BLOOD. THE MEDICS CAME AND TOOK ME TO THE ER.SCARED AND KNOWING THAT HE DIDNT MAKE I WANTED TO BELIEVE HE WAS OK. I SPENT 3 MONTHS IN SOLITARY I HATED MYSELF AND THE WORLD.

i understand what you are going throu hun, but you have to pull through this or your friend would have died for nothing, you need to live not only for yourself but for him he would want it this way

i've had this dream before but youve acctuly lived it. Im in love with my best girl friend and we have been dating for a while now, and i constantly fear something like this will happen to her. just reading this story made it all so real. I feel so sorry for you but trust me anger and deppression isn't the way. ive been there when my bestfriend Karen Boggs die of lucemia. and it was nyesha (my best girl friend) who got me out of it. i know it seems right, but its much better to live on. i give you my goodluck and i hope you make it. remember there is always someone out there who still loves you.
