Wingdings are a series of dingbat fonts which render letters as a variety of symbols. They were originally developed in 1990 by Microsoft by combining glyphs from Lucida Icons, Arrows, and Stars licensed from Charles Bigelow and Kris Holmes.

5:10 am
Haz1558

It is a nice grid so far, sprite. How are you today?

5:12 am
sprite

We will have to sit out the waiting, and staying in the now is the best way to do that. We are both calmer.
5:12 am
Haz1558

That's good.
5:12 am
sandyloo

Sprite, what has happened? what is this waiting?
5:13 am
lynxxx

Is something happening Sprite? (only if you want to tell)
5:13 am
sprite

I just happened to be in babble when sprite talked about it yesterday - she was quite shaky at the time, understandably.
5:15 am
sprite

could be nothing, could be nasty. Must wait until we know, but ofcourse are worried and afraid.
5:15 am
herinfernallady

O Sprite. Thinking of yous
5:15 am

5:15 am
sandyloo

deja vu, sprite, that was the same for me , they found something on my husband's lung but he says he is better and wont go for another scan!!

5:16 am
sandyloo

no kidding Sprite - he is so stubborn
5:17 am
zoozzoom

I agree...should try & make him go again Sandy.
5:18 am
lynxxx

I hope it turns out to be nothing Sprite, spots on lungs do come and go, there can be remnants of infections that will disappear in a few months. (Happened to me, was very worrying but 3rd scan over 5 months and it had gone)
5:18 am
sandyloo

One of my best friends has just got the all clear after chemo so the sky is the limit!! it was great news and it is about time Babble had some great news, so hang in there Sprite

5:29 am
herinfernallady

nope. My hand bag is about A4 size. It is funny. I just told them I would be calling the ACCC in the morning and they would be in trouble you can check shopping bags not personal
5:30 am
zoozzoom

and what did they reply to that?.
5:30 am
lynxxx

really? they are so understaffed and their staff don't even seem to care about much
5:30 am
sprite

here they can ask to check all bags, and if you don't agree, they can call the police to do it for them.
5:30 am
zoozzoom

what is this world coming too geez
5:30 am
sandyloo

here too, they can check all bags
5:31 am

5:38 am
lynxxx

5:38 am
zoozzoom

lol
5:39 am
Haz1558

You're not meant to not eat or drink anything, zooz. You need to at least drink something.
5:39 am
sprite

hm that is not much lol ;)
I hope you know that not eating brings down the sugar lvl in your blood, which can make depression worse. You are worth to take better care of yourself... as they tell me all the time.
5:40 am

I had to fast for my op on Tuesday for nearly 24 hours and spent all day yesterday trying to get rehydrated again. Drink!
5:41 am

listen to Haz, zooz. Please drink something.
5:41 am
sandyloo

what was your op Haz (if you want to share?)
5:41 am
lynxxx

operation? something minor I hope Haz
5:41 am
sprite

did it go alright, Haz?
5:41 am
Haz1558

I had my gall bladder removed - keyhole surgery, one night in the clinic and home yesterday morning.
5:42 am
zoozzoom

oohh..are you sore?
5:42 am
Haz1558

It went fine, I'm a wee bit sore, but otherwise up and about.
5:42 am
zoozzoom

good for you Haz..glad it went well.
5:42 am
Haz1558

I've got painkillers so any discomfort is under control.
5:42 am
lynxxx

Wow - you make it seem so minor! ai am pleased it went so smoothly
5:43 am
sandyloo

Haz, I hope you will be fine, why your gall bladder?
5:43 am
zoozzoom

Thanks lynxxx..that is what i meant.
5:43 am
sprite

I hope it will heal up quickly and fully.
A friend of mine had hers removed and she says she can eat and drink everything now, only she must take care not to get a totally empty stomach.
5:43 am
Haz1558

It's so minor now compared to the open surgery - 4 puncture wounds instead of an open wound.
5:44 am
lynxxx

BBL
5:44 am
Haz1558

sandy - I had gallstones which were causing pain.
5:44 am
zoozzoom

4..i thought it was one...ouch
5:44 am
sprite

it is an amazing improvement over open surgery, that is for sure. But still pretty intense for your body to handle, I guess.
5:44 am
sandyloo

oooh, that can be very painful I believe
5:45 am
Haz1558

Anyway, zooz, to get back to you. You'll make yourself ill if you don't eat or drink. Don't make your body suffer!
5:45 am
sandyloo

zoos, you have to eat immediately and get a drink
5:46 am
zoozzoom

to be honest Haz..i am trying to end it all...lol............sorry to sound sio negative as there has been alot of bad news here already...hence why i have not mentioned it before..lol
5:46 am
Haz1558

Poor zooz. He made the mistake of owning up to women who will nag him to death.
5:46 am
zoozzoom

lol
5:47 am
Haz1558

zooz, I know what you mean. Sometimes the chat log can make me feel quite negative and cross, especially when there don't seem to be any answers to some of the problems.
5:47 am
sprite

zooz, ending it all is not a solution. Try to take one hour at a time, but don't give up. Things will get better. They always do.
5:48 am
zoozzoom

hahaha..i love being here..i really do...the one place i enjoy :-)
5:48 am

Zooz, I have a daughter your age, so you MUST do as I say. Think of what you mean to us - get a cuppa, look for the next icon to share, and tell us you love us as much as we love you. God bless.

Subliminal messages in the grid, Zooz - tea, tasty, eat, and kiss (from us) ... so, off to the pb

Don't anybody give zooz any clues. Or give rubbish ones.

6:04 am
Anniebrook

Hello Haz and zooz..what is this? Haz had hergallbladder removed and zooz wants to remove himself? Not good news today. Zooz, we need you here with your icons and your nice comments.
6:04 am
Haz1558

So many of us have suffered with depression and know the feeling that other people would be better off without you. That comes from irrational thinking - what seems real to you isn't always the case.
6:05 am
sprite

let's not end it here, we will not let you go that easily.
6:05 am
Haz1558

Hello Annie, yes, I'm minus a gallbladder and plus four holes.
6:05 am
Anniebrook

Haz, how are you feeling? No pain I hope.
6:05 am
Christine

Oh, Baby, you don't know stubborn -- and you're just one man against the will of many women. Give up, just do as we tell you.
6:06 am
Haz1558

So, if you think that doing away with yourself is going to be good for other people - you're wrong.
6:06 am
Haz1558

Annie, I'm fine - slightly sore but painkillers are great things.
6:07 am
Christine

Serious thought -- even if you think no-one will miss you (emotionally) think of the clean-up that must be undertaken by someone.
6:07 am

What is this, Zooz? You cant do this. Call your doctor right now. Listen to us, we are too strong to resist.
6:08 am

zooz, you have babble here. I am pretty sure if you end your life yourself, you will be made to watch us play, without being able to read chat or find words.
6:08 am

zooz, cut this out at once , I love it when you are on! I would miss you
6:08 am
zoozzoom

i understand what you are saying Christine..i really have thought about everything..but i just cannot cope anymore...and i am NOT going to any mental hospital.
6:09 am
Haz1558

Can I tell you a funny story about a mental hospital?
6:09 am
zoozzoom

oh Sprite that was cruel..lol
6:09 am
lynxxx

Michael - please don't do this, it is extremely distressing to think that such a nice person could 'go'. Please go back to your doctor and tell him you need help
6:09 am
Christine

No mental hospital, Honey - think about a change of place (pace?). Visit somewhere nice, soak up some sun (Califormia's nice).
6:09 am
zoozzoom

please do Haz
6:10 am
sprite

hey, anything that might work :)
We want you around, zooz. You can cope. Get help.
6:10 am
Haz1558

A friend of ours was visiting his brother in a mental hospital - he had only just be admitted and his brother was waiting to see him. Another patient came along and expressed his fear of what was going to happen to him.
6:10 am
Christine

Michael, you've upset my gremlins, and they misspelt California.
6:11 am
Haz1558

My friend tried to be reassuring and told him that he would be assessed, people would talk to him and would put him on the right medication. Soon, he said, he would feel so much better. The patient looked at him for a while and said 'Well, right enough, it seems to have worked for you.'
6:12 am

roflol Haz!

We dont even know what the trouble is michael, maybe we might have some suggestions, but I agree with Haz, tell your doctor

While you have a nap, think about what we've said ... we may not have medical training, but we've all had life-training, and know that in many cases, things can and do get better.

oh dJean, how awful. Yes, in a certain way, taking one's life is a very aggressive action. It always hurts other people.
6:31 am

of course it does. I can certainly understand his drear at the thought of a mental hospital, but that doesn't have to be the only other answer

Hi folks! Lurking at work and see the conversation that's been going on. There is a Zooz Zoom on Facebook, but completely without info-- anyone know if that's the right one? I think Trif's idea that someone call the Isle Of Wight constable is a good one. I'm not in the UK; can anyone do that?

Hi Jacula

his full name is posted on his Babble profile

but I have other details if someone wishes to speak to me on FB

Don't we give our addresses to Dr.God when we register? I know we give our email address, and surely the police can track his address from that - assuming he's at home.
6:49 am

Someone in the UK should call! I can't call from my work. I'm not in the UK anyway, but if I was at home I could call anyway.
6:50 am

Herin - I'm in FB now.
6:51 am

Posting about it on here can be seen as a cry for help. If he wanted to be absolutely certain nobody could interfere he wouldn't have brought it up.

Haz1558

I'm hoping that he's looking for help, just how to get it for him is another matter. If an ambulance turned up on his doorstep, he could refuse to go.
6:57 am
redturtlehead

actually I would think that UK laws are similar to ours here, we can committ someone for 72 hours if someone calls the police with the information of wanting to self harm.
6:57 am
hurshy

i just popped in to see how big the grid is before i'm off, but, if it's any consolation, i believe that statistically, the real and successful suicides often say nothing before hand - the people that tell people ARE looking for help and often don't follow through. so have hope.
6:58 am
MonkeyGames

Maybe they send out social workers in this kind of situation? Someone to try to talk him down? Or maybe the p[olice can contact his doctor?
6:58 am

he told us, that must have a reason.

The symbol developed as a mercantile shorthand symbol of "each at"—the symbol resembling a small "a" inside a small "e"—to distinguish it from the different "at" (symbolized by the mere letter "a") or "per."

If ampersand means in place of and, it would follow that ampersat means inplace of at.

anytime you post anything to the web, you have to understand that you have given up certain rights to it. even just posting a photo in your profile here, anyone could copy it and post it elsewhere.

Hello, Feather..yes still chugging away at the grid
11:14 am
zoozzoom

oh i see...yes i am still here..lol
11:15 am
featherbee

are you feeling any better about things?
11:15 am
zoozzoom

no change..but thanks anyway :-)
11:16 am
featherbee

there are phone numbers you can call, to just talk to people.
11:16 am
zoozzoom

done all that :-)
11:16 am
Sev

i don't chat often, but i sure am glad to see you back zooz!
11:16 am
featherbee

what brought everything up, if you don't mind me asking? like i said, i was at the tail end of things.
11:17 am
zoozzoom

Thanks Sev.
11:18 am
zoozzoom

nothing brought it up as such feather..just how things are escalating for me..thats all...just too much to bear.
11:18 am
bichon

zooz, I don't know what issues you are facing, but I was there many years ago. I've taken an SSRI for those years and have much improved
11:18 am
featherbee

i was there once. i know the feeling.
11:19 am
featherbee

i had just had a miscarraige, the house we were buying was putting us through the ringer with closing hassles, and i wanted to just escape.
11:19 am
Kazzer99

Hi all been lurking for a little bit as i had my diabetic eye check today and i am on my main pc with a very large font
11:20 am
zoozzoom

sorry to hear that you babblers have been through it too...did not mean to start all this off to be honest..i am also a bit embaressed about it too..but my mind is made.
11:20 am
featherbee

do you have family nearby?
11:21 am
featherbee

that's the main thing that stopped me. thinking of what the people around me would go through.
11:21 am
flosey

don't ever be embarrassed about it zooz, best thing is to get it out, let friends know what's going on with you - and for you to know that you do have friends who care
11:21 am
bichon

I found a really great doctor who has helped me through a lot and I can't imagine that I once was severely depressed
11:22 am
featherbee

please look at it this way....you're going to have a LOT of people here in babble very sad and hurt if you do this. you're not alone in the world, you're more connected to other people than you think.
11:23 am
zoozzoom

i agree..that friends are so important..and they are to me too...but i just don`t want to go through with it any more.....thanks feather..i do realise that i really do..but enough is enough...still i feel ok at the moment...so plenty of time left yet.
11:23 am
featherbee

what exactly is going on? is it medical? again, tell me to hush when you want to.
11:25 am
zoozzoom

it is a combination of things really some i cannot mention as it hurts me too much..others are just family related so cannot speak to them much.
11:25 am
featherbee

ok. please, see if there's someone, anyone, that you can talk about that is near you. or call one of those numbers.
11:26 am
featherbee

talk about it with....you know what i meant.
11:26 am
zoozzoom

most of it is just mental i fear..also when wife & son moved away.
11:27 am
featherbee

oh dear. please don't do that to your son.
11:27 am
zoozzoom

i do know what you meant Feather..and thank you for your concern..but i am rather happy to know (hope) it will be over sometime soon :-)
11:27 am
scribekd

zoozzoom-you should try to call the help lines again-this time with a different counsellor-it could work--you're different every day, too & the comboination might just be the ticket
11:27 am
bichon

Zooz, there IS help out there. This is just a temporary state. You don't need a permanent solution
11:27 am
JBV

zooz, I don't know you but I feel very deeply that you need and want help - please listen to the wisdom of babblers, there is hope
11:28 am
flosey

and zooz, if you get someone who is not right for you, or helping you, ask for someone else
11:28 am
redturtlehead

On top of that Zooz, kids who have parents who take their own lives are much more likely to do it also themselves, so please do not do that to your son.
11:28 am
redturtlehead

and I agree with JBV, you apparently want help, or you wouldnt be here. let us help you.
11:29 am
zoozzoom

my son does not care any more Feather..i know he told me so himself ok no more about that..sorry can`t see the bloody type here...lol
11:29 am
blueheron

((((Zooz))))We are all here for you.Let us know how we can help.
11:30 am
scribekd

your son might care more than you know & needs you the more than ever-you could help each other
11:30 am
featherbee

even if he says he doesn't care any more, and even if he is mad at you right now, you're still going to do one hell of a number to him mentally if you do this. guilt, regret, loss, what ifs.
11:30 am
bichon

Or you might just need a little distance for a while and then pick up again
11:31 am
flosey

Zooz, please keep in mind, we all care, my dear man, my heart goes out to you - perhaps your son is being influenced by someone else but he could, in time, think things out for himself

Yes, luckily she made several really good friends in her pre-natal group so there are several children all the same age. Also Esther goes to nursery two days a weeks and she loves it

12:18 pm

true Christine - very hard to want so much to help but dependent on him coming online to chat
12:22 pm
Christine

Whenever I hear of anyone in a suicidal frame of mind, I wonder what I could've done to dissuade him - even if I don't know him - rich/famous, for example. Plus, I remember that we were taught despair is the great sin, thinking you can't get God's help.
12:24 pm
Deeha

My twin sister made 15 suicide attempts - she was sent from the hospital to have a filling pout back, dated the dentitst asnd has been married to him for 30 years - no further problems. We complain about the NHS but look what you get!!!
12:26 pm
Christine

That's the thing - often treatment can help, but Zooz doesn't want to try. However, his idea is to not eat or drink, and I think that must be a hard way to go - I'm sure I'd give in for a last slice of brad or something.
12:28 pm
Christine

Unless someone restrained you, how could you not eat/drink.

The only consolation is that you can be drip fed if you get like that. If you take more drastic measures there might be no return.

I feel I want to send it to all the people who use parts of the bible to suit their agenda. The big thing here is the right of a same-sex couple to marry. No, say the antis, because marriage is for procreation - it says so, in the bible. I'm 73, and, God willing, I'll have no more babies, so should I not be allowed to marry - if I can convince Sean Connery to leave his wife?

Hi, just starting 331 words to go. Here in THE Washington the skies are mostly blue with puffy clouds, temperature 67 degrees at our house, zephre (sp) winds. Going to be great tomorrow@
3:52 pm
Trifioso

hello stid. We call those "simpson clouds"
3:52 pm
jmcnrick

i am going to freeze
3:52 pm
Aloyisius

for a biggee grid, it was a fun one.. must scoot.. have a great trip, jmc ! see you all next grid!
3:52 pm
stidgmere

jmcnrick is on the way--that is very super! Simpson clouds, okay I call them something cumulus.
3:53 pm
stidgmere

We have coats here. Bet one or two will fit you jmc!
3:54 pm
Trifioso

Stid, we only call them that because they look like the clouds at the beginning of the Simpsons, not any scientific reasons. we're just a big ol bunch of goofs.
3:55 pm
stidgmere

The guy who started the Simpsons went to Evergreen State College across the inlet from us. I know where he got his inspiration.
3:56 pm
Trifioso

hmmm. I wonder if it is like Franklin Pierce college up north of here, which everyone calls "Fisher Price" College -- even the students
3:57 pm
stidgmere

We have a HS called Franklin Pierce but I don't know anyone who ever went there. Franklin Pierce was a rather easily forgotten President.
3:59 pm
dcseain

My sister went to Gar-Field HS, not named after the president.
4:00 pm
Trifioso

please, I got nothing, my kids go to Vinal Elementary. Vinal. I know, I know, it's not THE vinyl, but still. Who the hell names a school after someone named "Vinal?"
4:00 pm
dcseain

Lemon Rd School is one of my fave school names around here. That and Strongjohn Thompson Elementary.
4:02 pm

redturtlehead

I would like a real waffle. not a virtual one, I need to cook, I think,
4:10 pm
stidgmere

Cooking is a good hobby. It's not like ceramics--lots of things around to dust and filling up the rooms. You cook, eat, clean-up, no mess.
4:10 pm
redturtlehead

true true no clutter...
4:10 pm
jacq

4:12 pm
dcseain

4:13 pm
stidgmere

If only we had a sous chef to handle the chopping, assembling, and washing as we go.
4:13 pm
jacq

4:13 pm
jacq

4:13 pm
redturtlehead

if only i could find the last 108!
4:14 pm

part of the trouble in my house is that when it's a big meal everyone is there in the kitchen chattering etc so everyone stirs the pot and tastes it etc
4:15 pm
stidgmere

My kitchen is quite small but opens out to the dining area. A long counter separates cook from observers.

zooz lost his job and is not doing well emotionally
4:37 pm
jacq

thats hard, i knew things had to be bad before someone called the police, but zooz was glad people cared and he said he was going to see his doc tomorrow
4:38 pm
firefly779

4:38 pm
dcseain

and we pray he goes and they provide meaningful help
4:39 pm

4:40 pm

4:40 pm
dcseain

concern about ending it all is what resulted in the police being called, yes.
4:40 pm
bichon

I think that was the right move. He certainly was crying for help earlier today
4:40 pm
jacq

i am glad he wasn't on here alone telling it all to an empty room
4:40 pm

oh, sorry - missed your question, M9! Earth is above heaven to portray the harmony of nature. That is, it's divine - if it were viewed as we as humans see it (heaven above), it would break the harmony. Why, I don't know..

That's the 2nd time on internet forums I've known such a situation. The last time, a lady from Australia stopped someone in UK dying. He'd done the deed with a blade and the police got there in time. It's lucky she took him seriously in the early hours of the UK morn.

jacq - doesn't work, I guess?
7:15 pm
daykat

I have made so many attempts to quit, so hard
7:15 pm
jacq

the very governments that are trying to ban them make a fortune from taxes and if all smokers stopped then they would have to get their billions elsewhere
7:15 pm
blueheron

so has it make you quit?
7:15 pm
jacq

it does work, but then another drama with my baby bro
7:15 pm
Jacula

Tell you what, if you smoke when you have a nicotine patch on it doesn't half make your heart thump!
7:15 pm
jacq

it lasts for about two hours
7:15 pm
blueheron

It's our choice
7:15 pm
Jacula

jacq - I agree, and that's why they'll never do a total ban.
7:16 pm
jacq

lol Jac, i always wore mine under my waistband so i could put them back on after
7:16 pm

i've watched the taxes go up on smokes twice as much as it does on alcohol! do smokers kill while driving? maybe, but sure not as many as do driving drunk!
7:16 pm
jacq

but... they could introduce measures to make them less harmful, make them less addictive, they say now that to some people nicotine is more addictive than crack or heroin
7:16 pm

7:18 pm
Jacula

jacq - do you remember those herbal type cigs that the government brought out years ago? They were horrible! Didn't last long before they disappeared.
7:18 pm
m9f9l

thanks all. have you read the book Bellwether?
7:18 pm
jacq

they were awful!!!! like smoking weedkiller
7:18 pm

7:18 pm
Minveryork

Congratulations m9f9l on your fireworks! Way to go!
7:18 pm
Jacula

blue - they did in US, too? Oh,, that's hilarious.
7:19 pm
m9f9l

I think you'd really like it! what made me think of it was the smoking conversation
7:19 pm
blueheron

jup, and I fell for it
7:19 pm
Jacula

Worse than those herbal things like 'Honeyrose' and can't remember the name of the other brand they used to sell in chemists'.
7:19 pm
blueheron

I remember chewable pills too...
7:19 pm
m9f9l

it's about a woman who's researching fads.
7:20 pm
jacq

i am going to try again after saturday night, will keep you posted on how it goes
7:20 pm
m9f9l

for a company. because they figure if they can find out how a fad starts...well.....
7:20 pm
m9f9l

it's very funny. and well written
7:20 pm
jacq

i have pills, had those ones that are prescribed but they never ever took the edge off the craving
7:20 pm
blueheron

maybe thats why my brain is the way it is:)
7:21 pm
m9f9l

it's by connie willis, a sci-fi writer
7:21 pm
Jacula

blue - just got this from Wiki. LOL! "A bellwether is any entity in a given arena that serves to create or influence trends or to presage future happenings.

The term is derived from the Middle English bellewether and refers to the practice of placing a bell around the neck of a castrated ram (a wether) leading his flock of sheep.[1][2] The movements of the flock could be noted by hearing the bell before the flock was in sight."
7:21 pm
m9f9l

yup. and this is about the book: Bellwether, a 1996 novel by Connie Willis, is a book that can fall into many genres, such as comedy, fairy tale, romance, and science fiction. The novel is broadly based on the unsettling concepts of human culture. It was nominated for the Nebula Award for Best Novel in 1997
7:22 pm
Jacula

m9 - I will look out for it.
7:22 pm
m9f9l

a lot of the chapters start with a little blurb about fads in history.
7:22 pm
m9f9l

and those are hilarious
7:22 pm
jacq

sounds interesting
7:22 pm
blueheron

I would love to read it
7:22 pm
lbdawger

sounds like a fun read.
7:22 pm
Jacula

jacq - it'll work when the time is right for you. I once had hypnosis and the first thing I wanted when I left the place was... guess what...?
7:23 pm

7:23 pm
jacq

i like my bed to be pr*****ed in winter
7:24 pm

7:24 pm

I often see number (license plates) when we're out and about with Babbler's names on them. "That'd be go for 'so-and-so'", I say. Beloved either sighs or agrees, if he's knows who I'm talking about.
7:54 pm

Hi NonnieLight. Blueheron was also asking about him.

NonnieLight

OK, stid...thanks. He's been on my mind all day.
7:55 pm

Nonnie - zooz came back in the afternoon and connected with the police who were trying to contact him on here.
7:55 pm
NonnieLight

Thanks min :o)
7:55 pm

thanks Jac.
7:56 pm
NonnieLight

Oh thank goodness, Jacula.
7:56 pm
Jacula

3 of us contacted the police about him and I believe the posts were genuine when they came on here.
7:57 pm
Minveryork

I wonder how the police sign onto Babble. I wonder if they have to create an account for an investigation.
7:57 pm
Jacula

He has promised to see his doctor in the morning and I think the police will be checking that he does so.
7:57 pm
Jacula

Min - they do have access to internet sites and can intervene where necessary.
7:58 pm
NonnieLight

I'm so glad you all thought to contact the police.
7:58 pm
NonnieLight

I hope he follows through with this and gets the help he needs.
7:59 pm

what are you talking about? what happened earlier? sounds a bit scary.

331 words and 4 hours to go sure I can do it! and hello everyone
7:59 pm
Jacula

Like I said earlier, this is the 2nd time I've known this kind of situation on the internet. Last time, on another site, a woman from Australia saw a man in UK in real distress and contacted the UK police. As it turned out he HAD 'done the deed' with a blade, and the police were able to get there in time to save his life.
8:00 pm
Jacula

Minski - one of our Babblers was suicidal earlier.
8:00 pm
Minveryork

Hello meliae! How are you doing? Welcome to the grid!
8:00 pm
NonnieLight

I got to work this morning and we had news that the head of our nursing dept. attempted suicide and is on a vent...not likely to make it.
8:00 pm

8:01 pm

Oh Nonnie... *gentle mama hugs*

8:01 pm
Jacula

What drove him to that, Nonnie?
8:01 pm
meliae

Many hugs back =)
8:02 pm
NonnieLight

It was awful as her son had just commited suicide about 3 months ago! The devastation this does to family and friends is awful.
8:02 pm
stidmama

you can DO it meliae!!!
8:03 pm
Jacula

Life can look so bleak and hopeless at times, with no way out of the black abyss, but, you know, there really IS some sunlight at the end of the tunnel, no matter how weak. 6 days, 6 weeks, 6 months or 6 years on, you can experience a moment which makes you glad to be alive.
8:03 pm
Jacula

Nonnie - I can understand her devastation. Was he her only child?
8:04 pm
NonnieLight

No, she has two daughters and sadly one is the twin of the brother who killed himself.
8:05 pm
Minveryork

I have always said that suicide is the most selfish act anyone can do. Someone does something devastating and is not around to see their family and friends deal with the aftermath.
8:05 pm
NonnieLight

I agree with you Jac. I always cautioned my daughters when they were teens (some difficult years) to just give things time as situations will change and things will get better.
8:05 pm
Jacula

Nonnie - then that is the lever for her to carry on. She has two othe children and, no matter how devasted she is, she has to be there for them, especially the twin. If she is not, she will look down on their double suffering and wish she was.
8:06 pm
NonnieLight

It is selfish, min. But I know for someone to take that step they must be in such pain but I wish they'd stop and think what this will do to those I leave behind.
8:06 pm

8:07 pm

I work (volunteer) with a lot of very mentally ill people. they don't "think" they just end the pain the best way they know how, sometimes with alcohol and drugs, sometimes with suicide

hi meliae, and grammaterri
8:11 pm
Jacula

You get the cases like people whose marriages have ended and they jump off a cliff holding their kids. The have NO right to end their kids' lives but that's not how they're seeing it. They are thinking it's the best thing to stop their children feeling pain and loss etc.
8:11 pm
grammaterri1

exactly Jacula and you usually don't even know it until the person is gone, they just end it. after the fact you say...oh I DID see it coming, they are very good at hiding it
8:12 pm
Jacula

So, they've closed the 'nut houses' down in USA, too? Incidentally, we don't use nut house in UK as a derogatory term necessarily.
8:13 pm
grammaterri1

oh yes long ago. granted there WERE some terrible cases of mistreatment but just closing them all down with no recompense really was way worse
8:13 pm
stidmama

they did that about 20 years ago Jacula, now many mentally ill end up in the prison system because they act out in antisocial ways... and there is little support for people BEFORE they act out, even when it is clear they need help.
8:13 pm
Jacula

Fragile people who cannot cope with everyday life have been turned out onto the st7/28 here in UK.
8:13 pm
lbdawger

a person can be committed to a hospital for observation up to 72 hours, after that, a doctor has to sign the commitment papers, or a legal guardian to commit for longer
8:14 pm
stidmama

there. down to 100. listing.
8:14 pm
grammaterri1

right stid. and they get NO mental help in prison because we just don't want to spend the money....sigh
8:14 pm
grammaterri1

true dawg but rarely longer than a few months. insurance won't pay much
8:14 pm
grammaterri1

that is part of what I do, trying to get long term care
8:14 pm
Jacula

I'm so sad that this so-called 'englightened' world is actually worse in some ways than it was in the past.
8:15 pm
lbdawger

it always boils down to how much it's going to cost someone...governments, agencies, families..
8:15 pm
stidmama

is the AS 5/18 fishy? my last AS word
8:15 pm
grammaterri1

there is no one willing to pay, that's the main problem
8:15 pm
lbdawger

you could say it's fishy, gold fishy
8:16 pm
Jacula

I know that, in the past, girls who got pregnant out of wedlock weer committed to institutions when they grieved for the babes taken away from them and that was bad. But, in some cases, long-term care IS needed.
8:16 pm
stidmama

ultimately, it would cost LESS to be sure people have the treatment they need to a) stay safe; b) keep others safe and c) be as productive as they can be as members of society...
8:16 pm
stidmama

thanks LBD *thinking*
8:16 pm

right Jac not talking about someone going through a bout of depression, seriously mental people most often will not "get well"
8:17 pm

amen stid!
8:17 pm
Jacula

My ex and I had to put our daughter into mental health care for 3 long years, as many of you know. If we hadn't doen that, she would not be alive to have just finished her university degree now and be moving towards a PHd.
8:17 pm
grammaterri1

awesome for her!
8:17 pm
stidmama

so glad you were able to do what was necessary for your daughter Jac. ((hugs))
8:18 pm
lbdawger

you take into consideration, the cost of the residence, mortgage, taxes, then the professionals to help those in need, their salaries, health insurance, then you take into consideration overhead costs, lighting, heating, cooling, feeding, clothing...it all adds up, and governments/agencies don't have the money or don't want to spend the money on those things.
8:18 pm
Jacula

I know, stid. Thanks.xx
8:18 pm
NonnieLight

I work for a state-run residential facility for the devopmentally disabled. The feds are trying to close facilities like ours down. They have no idea what they are doing. Most of our people will have no place to go. They will be out on the streets. A lot of our people have dual diagnosis so they are severely disabled. Families have aged and cannot cope with the day-to-day care. My heart goes out the people in these situations.
8:19 pm

oh for sure nonnie, trying to find care is heartwrenching

8:23 pm

my concern is that what is a useful skill or ability at one time is not useful at others... if we devolve to the people who are physically strong, for example, and then a situation comes up that requires more mental finesse...

I just lost a little girl a couple years ago. she had had a bad crack habit, got clean and had a great job and was in college. beautiful blondie had all the guys after her. she picked up that pipe again (what the hell was she thinking?) and was so disgusted with herself, she hung herself. But even when she was doing so good, I just knew :(

Babble helps me get through the roughest days, I find. When I really can't pull myself together, I come here and get empathy, stern words or advice, and understanding along with examples of people who have made it through similar situations. As a parent, as a student... having that kind of support makes a HUGE difference.

I was with my son, my daughter and her b/f in the centee of the city when we came out of the Ozzy Osbourne concert some weeks ago. A girl with heroin eyes asked if we had 'any spare change'. The kids all walked by her without another thought and grabbed my arms to make sure I did, too. I wouldn't have given her money, I'd probably have tried to take her somewhere safe. She's somebody's daughter.

reading the local paper... my hair dresser was involved in a car accident and cited for drunk driving (2nd offense) i have a real thing against drunk drivers (my oldest brother was killed by a drunk driver) i think i need to fire her (after 10+ years) am i obligated to tell her why? am i just being over sensitive??

8:33 pm
lbdawger

you don't have to tell her anything, unless she as4. you certainly have due cause to not see her again.
8:33 pm
rururocks

I think so A knitter I would
8:34 pm
Jacula

ak - Yes, I think you can fire her but I also think you have to tell her why whilst also asking her about the circumstances. There's no real excuse for drunk driving. but it may help to hear what she says, or not...
8:34 pm
aknitter

i actually drove by the accident and saw her there
8:34 pm
stidmama

my favorite brother in law was killed by a reckless driver (suspect the driver was drunk, but wasn't found until many hours later bcs hit and run)

i'm obviously not as kind as others on this subject. I have zero tolerance for drunk drivers.
8:35 pm
rururocks

we have drunk drivers here all the time in the valley
8:35 pm
aknitter

i know guilty until proven otherwise but.....
8:35 pm
Jacula

ak - 2nd conviction, remember.
8:36 pm
rururocks

I don't think there is any tolerance for drunk drivers lbd.. it shouldn't happen
8:36 pm
stidmama

zero tolerance for the driving while drunk, but some concern for the person herself... this is a medical issue (addiction) more likely than purely a decision to do something dangerous.
8:36 pm
lbdawger

(innocent until proven otherwise...)
8:36 pm
NonnieLight

My thoughts...if you're uncomfortable now with her and you would rather not do business with her, then you have the right to not do business with her. If you've known her for 10 years, I would imagine you would be close enough to her to let her know why you're ending your business relationship. Maybe, just maybe, that will be a wake up call???
8:37 pm
rururocks

not a repeat offender.. she has a drinking problem nonnie
8:37 pm
aknitter

dawg i am with you zero tolerance. that is my dilemma stid.
8:37 pm
stidmama

I don't understand addiction myself, but have had family members and friends who struggle. I don't know what your best course is, but I think that if you follow your heart, your instincts are good.
8:37 pm
lbdawger

again, stiddy, you are kinder than i am. I really have no tolerance for drunks, driving, walking or sitting.
8:38 pm
stidmama

I had one friend that I wrote to regularly while he served nearly a year in jail for drunk driving. He is now apparently sober and doing well. Without support from people who love him while he learned to sober up, I don't know the outcome would have been so good for him, or for others.
8:38 pm
rururocks

what about MADK? aknitter
8:39 pm
NonnieLight

ruru, are you saying a repeat offender won't change?
8:39 pm
rururocks

yes
8:39 pm
aknitter

i really think i would be uncomfortable with her cutting my hair. i feel badly that she has this problem but it is her problem and not mine. i really don't even want to talk to her. i am angry that she would do this and that she was driving on a street that my children and i travel on. i think drunk drivers are selfish
8:39 pm
lbdawger

i agree with ru.
8:40 pm
rururocks

no one wants to know what MADK is?
8:40 pm
stidmama

I think you have made your decision, knitter, and for good reasons.
8:40 pm

ak - in which case, change hairdressers and don't give an explanation.

I'm probably about to get very grumpy, too; I can't get up on a chair due to foot/ankle/leg injury to find were Beloveed has hidden the stash of cigarettes to stop his daughter stealing them. I'm going to have to go to my own stash, which comprises of black russians (which make his daughter fell sick - serrves her bloody well right then!) or the 7-year-old stale 'light' ones my ex Ma-in-Law gave me when she stopped smoking.
