You know me as Blaidd. I have been fighting depression as long as I can remember. I have attempted suicide 4 different times, the first time I was 11. I have a lot of stuff in my past I'm not proud of and don't usually talk about, so I can relate to other people's problems and pain. Feel free to send me a message as well if needed. I can promise I will not judge you no matter how bad you think it is. You can whisper your deepest and darkest secrets to me and I will keep them secret just between you and me. I know From my own experiences it is nearly impossible to get professional help if you do want it, and a lot of times you don't want to talk to a professional anyway for various reasons. Even so, it can help to have someone to talk to that can understand.

I don't use IM but if you want to talk to me that way just send me an email with which IM you prefer and I'll make an account. My phone checks email every half hour, and I'm usually on Skype 24/7 both on my computer and my phone, so I'll respond very soon.

[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.
