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

    My prayers are with the family of the victim and you.

    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.
