Rough day at work. I walked in to find that a coworker committed suicide last night. He is the last person I would have imagined would do that. It doesn't make any sense. He would fill a room with laughter. You could always count on him. I go from being sad to angry.

This is the 3rd suicide in 7 months. Also, 3 close calls. What is going on? I'm sorry to be so depressing but I needed to get it out.

Natasha, Am, and I went for a 5 mile walk. I did a SP workout. I'm going for a jog to clear my head.

    I don't blame you for being sad and angry. That's a perfectly reasonable response to such a thing.

3 suicides in 7 months? That's incredible.

I'm really sorry that this happened. Very sad.

    You have a right to be upset. OMG. 3 suicides in 7 mos? Is the workplace stressful would be what I'd ask?

    Suicide may be selfish but the person is in so much pain-mental or physical-that they have no room for any other thoughts. Hugs to you for the pain you are in as you mourn the tragic loss. emoticon emoticon

    Yes, I recently had a similar experience. A young man that trained us in my old work place that was always smiling, always upbeat committed suicide. Again, he was the last person I thought would do that. Such a waste of good people. It is shocking and I always think it is a very selfish act because it really damages other people left behind. I am sorry so many people around you have succumbed to it.
