Learnt last night that a woman who I didn't know well but well enough to have a chat & chin wag with who is a nurse & did project work part time & would sit behind the low partition in front of our work area, killed herself. Her project work finished last year so hadn't seen her for about 3 months.

Shocking, a kick in the guts. She was lovely. She asked my work colleague last year about advice to assist a friend who was depressed & suicidal. FFS. Very sad. She was all alone.


Sad to hear WPT. Sorry for your loss mate. A friends suicide is always very confronting.

I personally think that the prospect of being alone is very levelling and something that would be very difficult to cope with.

So sorry to hear that WPT that's terrible news.

My day at work today was very very sad - I can't elaborate due to confidentiality but despite best efforts we lost a little one Crying or Very sad

We couldn't have done anything more or anything different - but you still feel like you failed!!!

Sorry to hear Morrigu and WPT.

Someone I know through work their son had a "nervous breakdown" the other day and she had to spend some time taking him to mental health treatment. mid 20's, Ice user (don't know frequency, doesn't matter) that's a cnut of a drug, it really fkn messes with people.

I took my 2cwt anvil over to an auction house in Woodend for sale next month.
I took my lovely, newly acquired hay knife and my Collins St blacksmith hatchet for a valuation by the auctioneer while I was there.
He went into raptures when showed him the knife and the hatchet and told me he could get me around $300 for each!
I bought these things to sell but I couldn't part with both so I thought for a minute or two and gave him the hay knife.
The hatchet is unique & has Australian/early Melbourne history splashed all over it and will appreciate a lot faster than the knife.
The knife is well cool but not quite the haystack needle I've been searching for so I chose the lesser of too evils. Confused
I paid only $30 for it and I should be happy, but I'm not.
It's 1 of those rare finds I know I'll probably never repeat (like the hatchet) so right now I'm feeling like crap! Crying or Very sad

...or maybe I'm just hungry?
I skipped lunch so low blood sugar is a distinct possibility!


Oh well, I'm sure I'll get over it when I get the check arrives in the mail. Very Happy

Life goes on (the search for the elusive hay-stack needle continues)!
Cool

Sorry to hear. Never nice saying goodbye to a loyal friend.

My bully, Daics, is 15 this year. He's in pretty good nic for his age, sleeps a lot more than he used to, hearing and vision have slipped a bit. Don't know how much longer he's got😕

Hunter was 15 or 16. I'm not good with that stuff, I just know he was old.

But he had a good run.

Oh that is sad Stui - when we lost our old boy at 18 ( he was a beautiful good natured Belgium Shepherd) it was just bloody awful and it took us ages to move his couch from the lounge room.

I reckon your old fella had a good life and was well cared for even if you wouldn't let him inside!

Damn shame, Stui. A good innings nevertheless, and unless I miss my guess, he had a good home and a good life.
