trenchkamen: (Despair and failure)
[personal profile] trenchkamen
Picked Mom up at the airport this evening. I saw this scene on the north side of Terminal 4. Saw the body covered by the tarp. No, I did not see him jump, and at the time I did not know if he had been hit by a car or had committed suicide, but I looked around, saw the parking garage, saw the lack of any civilian cars at the crime scene, and just had a feeling...

Listen. Many of you I have had the honor of meeting in person, and count you among my closest friends. Many of you I have only spoken to briefly online. I don't care. You can always talk to me if you feel suicidal, or hopeless. Talk to me, talk to anybody. Call the suicide hotline. Just, PLEASE, get help. And if your friends seem suicidal, talk to them. Let people know. Help them get help.

I have dealt with crippling depression. I know what it's like to be there. It's never worth it. You just have to deal with things one minute at a time, if that is what it takes. And there are countless others out there who have been there. You are not alone.
