For those of you who pay attention, I addressed many of the questions and attitudes I have about suicide in a previous post, and any of you who actually READ this blog don't really have an excuse to have thought I would actually kill myself. To be sure, if I were going to check out of here, I would make sure my son was safely ensconced with his father, first, and not be lying in a pool of blood on the living room floor for him to find when he gets off the school bus. So, thanks for the vote of confidence, I really appreciate it.
CALLING THE POLICE, OR ANY MEMBER OF MY FORMER FAMILY IS INEXCUSABLE AND UNACCEPTABLE!!! I know you thought you were doing the right thing, but I want to make clear for any future concerns that this is not the approved course of action. The approved course of action is to calmly let me know either by phone or by email that you care deeply for me, and are willing to help in any way possible. Coming to my house and knocking on my door is also acceptable. I don't care how far away you live - I once drove 15 hours straight across the country for a friend whose parent had died. (To my friend who called the cops - that's 12 1/2 hours farther away than you were, Monday night, and they were merely grieving a passing that was expected.) I would do so again, without a second thought for most of you. Ask yourselves if you're willing to do that before you jump all over any of my posts again - not that I'll give you the chance, I learned my lesson the hard way...
So, enough with the social network, and back to the blog. Read it or don't. If you feel moved to comment, which some of you sometimes are, PLEASE comment on the blog, not on the link to the blog. I'm not interested in 90% of the crap that gets posted on the 'book'...well, maybe more like 50%, I'm not sure. I really dig the science tidbits from my science teacher friend, and the music links from my DJ/musician friend, and some of the interesting news articles I wouldn't otherwise have noticed from my newshound friends. Some of you are downright amusing, some of you are flat out annoying (but you get deleted, so you won't be seeing this!), some of you I just love so damn much I don't care what you post! My email and my phone number are listed on my info page - please make note of them if you want to continue communicating with me out in the world of forms, okay? Okay.
Enough about that , and we get up and move on. Shit still sucks. I'm still embroiled in what looks to a be an ugly, ongoing legal battle with my 'mother' without representation, I still have to move post-haste (ANY AND ALL OF YOU ARE
