My boyfriend told me yesterday that he wanted to kill himself. And that I was the only thing he had left, but he was in to much pain to keep going.
I've never dealt with anything like this before in my life. I called a doctor and I'm going to try and get my boyfriend to go to an appointment with me. But I just have no idea what to do. I just want to make him happy. But I'm not even the happiest person in the world so I don't have the most positive feed back. I just don't know what to do. Please help

He needs professional help.
I was depressed once 10 years ago. Went to see a shink, he said my "network of support" was too thin (mom: gone, dad: gone, no bros, no sis, transferred school no no old friends). My girlfriend had just left me and I still had to see her every day at work.
Doc prescribed me Prozac (it's a 12 week treatment) and I did 13 sessions of therapy. The drug doesn't cure you, it just puts a floor under your feet so that you can stand up, realize what's good in your life, put your act together at work, get your life sorted out, stop pitying yourself, and in his case, perhaps realize how much his girl loves him.
If he is clinically depressed, then for the love of god don't leave him just yet. Some may say "he is putting on you all the responsability for his happiness". If he IS clinically depressed, he is not. It's just that you are truly all he has left.
Make him go to the doc with you, and see if he can be prescribed anditepressants, and go to therapy.1
