RE: [furries-290] Death and Loss

I was once suicidal, and I know how dark of a place that is. I also know that talking helped alot, once I found someone to talk too. It probably saved my life. To I urge you, seek out help if you feel down like that. I am always willing to lend an ear to a person in need, and there are many people who will do the same, and do their best to help you.
