Honestly, the way she's talking, I'd bet she is.

IME, when they have a plan, they know an end is coming so they seem to get better, cause they want you to have the good memories, and they know the pain won't be there much longer.

Call the hotline. It won't be your fault if anything happens to her but it will always hang over your head,it's not something you forget. She will forgive you. Please call and let them make the decision to see her or not.

This. You do not want this to hang over your head for the rest of your life. If you think she will be mad I'll be honest she might be. I know my friend was pretty upset for about a week after I called. But right after I called the police I sent him a message about how much I cared about him and told him he could be mad at me and that I understood if he was. I mean I called the cops on him from half a country away. I reminded him he was my best friend and even if he was super mad at me to please talk to someone about it. If not just for him for me too.

He calmed down and about a month/month and a half later did start talking to someone. He started going to college and has been doing much better. He does still get depressed sometimes but has learned a lot of better ways to deal with it. We even joke about calling the cops on each other now.

I'm not saying this is what will happen for you but I can tell you from experience the best thing you can do for YOUR mental well being is to call or notify someone if you really think she is going to try to hurt herself.

Small update:

She is doing OK, she's become rather placid. She isn't shrieking or howling desires of death but she isn't very optimistic about much either, A situation where someone has an eye on her 24/7 isn't possible just due to her lifestyle and way she is but for now...sigh...I consider it like the eye of the storm...but I sincerely do hope she gets over this and moves on with happiness.

You only regret the things you don't do.

By that, I mean make sure you do what you feel you are able to. Helping someone doesn't require big gestures.

I would contact an LGBT group and ask them for advice on what you can do for her.

You're being an amazing friend, and no matter what she does or doesn't do, dont forget that.

She's been there done that with the LGBT organizations - they didn't really do much for her - she's not a community/outreach sort of person - she's really solitary even among people with similar interests/lifestyles. So I don't know how well they could advise me about her but I might give it a try...

I'm ok LOL - she's the amazing one; She's been an inexhaustible source of wise counsel during trying times, a hilarious companion and extremely savvy shopper, a spectacular person, and just a really really great person through and through. She views the world with clarity and precision - but is rather muddled in her own issues. It's like that for alot of us though, me included I guess...

Oh lord...it's stirring up again. It's been on her mind so strongly these few days and she's said she's felt numb...

did you just come right out and ask her? it won't "give her ideas" if you're reading it wrong, but it will give you the chance to state how much you care and how much you want her to live. if she says yes IMMEDIATELY take her to get professional help.

Call 911. That's all there is you can do. You can't talk them out of it. You can't make them better yourself no matter how very much you want to. Get the authorities involved, that's all that is left. She may be angry with you, and she may not talk to you again for a very long time, but sometimes you have to sacrifice a friendship in order to save a friend. I speak from experience on this.

((((HUGS))) and {{{{VIBES}}}} that everything turns out ok.
