I’m not sure where to even start. I had a high school friend reach out to me last night and tell me how sad he was at the election results, which I thought was somewhat normal. He then began to talk about how cruel the world is and how he should do everyone a favor and get rid of himself…this is the point I became concerned. He then told me about a shadowy figure that he started seeing when he was 19 and now it is appearing more and more. He told me the numbers 33 and 333 follow him around and how his dad has threatened to kill him twice… I’m no doctor, but he is certainly paranoid. He refuses to go to a counselor because he is afraid it will make him feel like he is imprisoned. He lives states away from me and I’m not even sure of what town exactly. My question is, do I search for his parents who live in my town and tell them what is going on despite his complaints about abuse and threats from them? (They still support him financially)
And advice would be great, thank you.
