Suicide Awareness

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 13, 2014, 6:31 AM

This is not normally a topic I cover, nor will I cover in depth unless what I suspect might happen comes to pass. I have a strong feeling, based off of observed behaviors from several people around me, that this winter will have a rather high number of suicides. I don't know what's going on, but I do know that economic and social factors are in play. While I'm in love with this time of the year out here in the North West; I can definitely understand why other people respond to the lower light levels differently.

This is just a generic warning to people that still read my journals. Keep a close eye on the people around you and respond quickly to any signs of severe depression and dialogue containing any words of self destruction. If you want more info, go check out the suicide prevention info at… .

I suspect the severe economic conditions we're experiencing in the US at this time is contributing to some of this talk I'm hearing from people. And yes, the economy is bad, real bad, no matter what the manipulated numbers say. Several people I know are either laid off, can't find permanent work other than seasonal help, and/or are working two jobs due to hour cuts.

Last winter, there were quite a few suicides of people I at know of or talked online with, if not met in person. Not to forget this last February, had a few co-workers that came close (however both made immediate changes to their life to address the issue and they left the company).

I'm just saying that I've already had to intervene twice this month, and its starting to put me on edge. I think this is going to be a bad winter.

Life is going well for now. Got some exciting job related training coming up. Networker virtual machine environment backup solutions (enterprise solution) in late October, and then in November, MWF x3 weeks to learn Cisco Vsphere virtual environment. Pretty nifty stuff. We've been using them for the last year and a half, but now we're training people in using it outside the initial people we had trained to set it up. And I'll be one of three people working on getting our backup setup working properly (finally...).

I don't have internet at home so, and I don't often check DA as much as I used to when I did.

it's been more than 2 weeks ;A;
lel anyway with that time, i've been playing around with what i have and if you checked, I've been doing digital art lately. I think I improved a lot *u*

Well I've got an idea. I'm in need of a nice icon for forums and my phone with the tiny picture on the front. Would you be willing to do a digital icon like what you've got only use my Sage character for the face? Might do some more of them for a few others so I'm not just using one everywhere. But start with Sage.

Oh, and its not a judge of your skill that I haven't talked much. I just have been bummed out over work being stupid lately and I just haven't felt like going to the tea shop.

Take care of yourself!
