I sent him a balloon bouquet and wrote him a note
and went and added him as a friend. I told him we were rooting for him.

I will try to make it a point to email him on a
weekly basis and see how he is doing.

Bless his heart, he wants the same thing as all the
rest of us....health and a life.

Yanno, when I read his page, there didn't appear to be any current suicidal thoughts, only notes of the past. In fact, he appears to be doing very well! The goodie I sent actually commented on that! What an inspiration he could be for others who don't see that life can get better (and I know about that feeling, believe me!).

Thanks for the heads up on this young man!

Well we will know soon enough, at any rate it sure will show him that people do care what happens to him. Hope he understands that and dose not see it as pitty.

I sent him a private mail to explain that I mentioned his name on this team, thought he might need a few friends and how many of you wonderful ladies have jumped right in offering kind words of encouragement. I also told him that if he ever needed to talk he could write to any of us. I hope we didn't scare him!

I wonder how savoy this kid is. Like all of a sudden all these folks are adding him as a "friend" and leaving him "goodies"?

I left a message and a goodie. I hope that he will be OK. It is a hard age to go through without being over weight. Let me know if there is anything I can do!

I'm back from looking at his page, and decided not to ask for coach intervention at this time ... mainly because he's referred to the suicide attempts in the past tense and from reading everything on his page and all his blogs, he seems to be stabilized on his meds, exercising, got through his surgery, and doing well.
Many people suffer from manic-depression ... in fact I have a good friend here who is much older, but has it and is doing very well, was also very heavy, but is now in primo condition, down to 145-150, and is an avid cyclist.

If any of you notice a down-swing in his blog comments, or talk of wanting to kill himself, etc., please get a hold of me or one of the CT members pronto! (We are the ones with the little green buttons next to our names on our posts).

You can also use the "report inappropriate post" and explain that you are afraid he is in trouble & needs professional help, and the Coaches will address it and respond to you.

Hope that helps!

From what I read, he is manic depressive which means the pendulum on his clock (mood) swing often and irregular. He dose state he is medicated and continues to be. Which my explain the mood swings and suicide attempts.

I will bring this to the attention of the coaches, Gwen ... this is something potentially serious, that we've run into before at SP, and has come up on the CT, and coach Dean is the expert in these matters ... will look at his page first, but sounds like the young man needs professional help.

Thanks, Gwen & all.

I have posted on SP's Team for Team Leaders that question and it will probably be seen by one of the coaches. Will let you know tomorrow am, your evening.
Good night for now.

P.S. I have also requested support from other leaders and one has already sent a comment. Gwen...can you keep an eye on his sparkpage please.

Does anyone know how to contact the Spark Guy other than to leave a public message on his sparkpage? I wanted to bring to his attention that this kid may need monitored but can't find where to privately send a message.

Ania just introduced me to an 18 year old kid who desperately needs some help. His name is MARCQUELLE, is over weight and depressed... mentioning suicide on his page. We both have left a comment and a spark goodie and I thought it would be cool if everyone went and talked to him! Wadda ya say? Send him some kind words of support!
