OT If You Need Help OT

In the last week I have seen someone attempt to jump off a freeway overpass, some successfully jump off a freeway overpass and sat with a 17 year old for several hours after he witnessed the result of his father taking his life.

    Good advice. I’m so sorry you had to witness that. There are solutions for everything. Nothing is impossible. 
  • Sorry man. Thanks for being out there. The world is a better place because you are.

    This is a good reminder. Wish it wasn't so imperative that resources are available or the need so great, but I can't imagine anything in the past few months has helped the mental health of those who are struggling. Thanks for all that you do.

    No words.  Or hardly any words.  

    Thank you, for all of it.

    @Battleborn, I couldn’t like your post because I didn’t like what you had to go through. Instead I just agreed that it sucked. Many are unemployed, my extended family is facing two divorces , a probable bankruptcy, and extending it out a bit further an eminent lung cancer death, and 4 cases of Covid. I tell the younger generation that this will always pass as long as they work  and stick around until it does.

    I’m sorry you have to experience that. You have a heavy burden being out there and dealing with these crisis. There are a lot of folks dealing with difficult situations. If YOU ever need to talk we’re here. PM me anytime.

    I can’t imagine having to deal with such situations. These are trying times, for all ages of people. 

    Thank you for doing what you do.

    Make sure you reach out too.  I have many LEO friends.  You all need to talk, vent, etc too.  My friends are some of the toughest bad a$$es I know.  It gets to them too.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.
