I’d Be Remiss If I didn’t Post This.




While the last thing I want to do is make a gloom and doom post, I’d be remiss if I didn’t post this.⁣

To get to the point. I’ve lost too many family and friends to suicide that I don’t want to lose any more.⁣

In Ohio, just in the first few days of this week, there has been an up-click in unemployment from 6,800 week prior to close to 80,000 so far this week. These are only the reported numbers. Many more have not filed yet. It’s fair to say this is over 100,000 and will only ramp up from here. I’m willing to bet we all know several people who are now out of work so these numbers are in no way repressive of the actual count. ⁣

Since everyone is now familiar with WHO, their global numbers for suicide in 2019 was 16 people out of 100,000 committed suicide... and was expected to double. We are being foolish to think this will not be higher in times like this.

It’s also safe to say that everyone reading this knows someone who’s lost others to suicide. I have so there you go.⁣
In short, while you are checking on your friends and family to see if they have C-19, also check to see how they are REALLY doing.⁣

I hate to post shit like this, but after you lose enough people, you begin to see the patterns.⁣

If you are on the edge, reach out to your family, friends, a stranger, anyone! You will find help and can get through it. ⁣
