I don’t talk much here and don’t have much contact with the locals anymore but I also do know how things have been on both sides of the fence, no matter who the person is I always want to help make sure everyone is happy and has someone to talk to. while I am no psychologist (my mom is one) sometimes just having a friend who has been there is enough to help. I am usually around quite often should anyone wish to talk. you can email or message me on IRC icey_kitsune, AIM icebluekitsune and yim iceykitsune

Subject: [furries-290] Death and Loss

My thoughts have been lingering quite a bit about recent losses in the
fandom, some are clearly accidental, some are otherwise mysterious,
however its all tragic, and in my time I have known of (and known)
several folks to have committed suicide. Having waded down that dark
morass myself, many times, I wanted to put _something_ out there.

Furry is a family, yes, its a (sometimes very) dysfunctional one, but I
have never seen a case where furs were not very nearly always there for
one another, sometimes with just a friendly shoulder, often with money,
time and other resources.

So, I want to make myself clear, if anyone feel so alone that they need
to end it, that there is no hope of improvement, please, reach out,
these are hard times, and contrary to what we hear, are not getting
better. Sometimes we all need someone to talk to, and I want every
person to know that someone will always be there for you to help you
deal with it, and while we may not solve your problem for you, we can at
least give you an ear to chew on for a bit. I volunteer myself for one.

I think its times like these that make us stronger as a community, and
while I would just as soon things be better for everyone, it helps us
all in the end if we pull closer together.

In the end, Don't be afraid to ask for help, we all need it sometimes.
