Monty is going to be awfully scared and alone when you wind up in 72 hours of lock up or in a hospital from police or military brutality. Theyíre sending AD army troops to D.C.

You literally can make no difference what so ever by getting your rear end pepper sprayed and beat with a baton.

But you can make sure Monty feels safe and happy and loved.

My vote is you stay home with Monty, and find ways to help online. I donít doubt you can handle yourself, but think of Monty.

Incorrect. One person of a group goes and tells their family and friends what is happening for real and it softens the hate.

There police are beating front liners but they have always best protesters.

No one should stay home. We're already being sacrificed to capitalism and fascism as we speak, as towns across America open up.

I stand for truth. I cannot stand by idly and neither should any of us.

Y'all were warriors at some point.

Teach these kids how to be mentally tough, how to organize, how to survive.

Do not let this movement be controlled by the media and trolls.

But if your can't bring yourself to do that, get involved online. There are people that need help spreading information, they need help organizing legal resources.

poo poo some people just need babysitting.

You don't have to be in the streets to help, but we need all the help we can muster.

Hey, gang: this is a friendly reminder to come up on the net if you're hurting or in a bad place. Please reach out to someone, anyone. Please say anything, even if it's just to blurt out, "Hey, things aren't great."

A dude who I didn't know very well but had been in my unit very recently re-created his Facebook account, added a bunch of us, and... then just ended it all. Could we have done something if we'd known? Yeah, probably. That's what we do.

Please help us help you. You matter. There's no shame in asking for help or just wanting to talk to someone.

Just needed somewhere to post for right now. I was in the GIP discord but left after a particularly bad day on Zoloft. My psych is having me come off the med because she said it was an "activator" for me. I was having bad times before, but this poo poo has set me back years therapy wise/mental health wise. I truly believe I would have killed myself if I had continued to take it/had access to a gun or some means of suicide that was quick and didn't require much thought. For anyone who knows me, if you thought I was having a bad time before: it's way, way worse now. It's been getting better as the medicine washes out of my system but I don't think I'll even be half as stable as I was before; and I wasn't that stable to begin with. Just feel completely defeated from the whole experience.

Getting hobbies and chores done is starting to help, with the change in meds recently.

Still feel waves of guilt being so privileged having a home and poo poo while the world burns. I worked for it all but... Just feels bad knowing someone isn't so lucky and I'm worried about "spoons" and poo poo.

I'm in a nursing program and need to sit in on a peer support group as a part of the program. I was hoping to find something vet oriented but I haven't had much luck finding official peer support groups of any kind.

Does anyone here know of a peer support group that may be willing to let a nursing student observe a session?

If there is a Vet Center near you, they would be a good place to start. Don't know if they'd let you sit in, but at the very least they might know of where to point you.

What part of the country are you in, and what type of Peer Support? Formally organized, part of a larger organization or more informal?

I'm in NYC. I believe it needs to be a formal group of some kind, but depending on the specifics I could ask my professor and they might let it fly. If it's organized by someone with a license it would probably be fine, if it's some folks meeting up at Dave's it might be a hard sell.

I'm planning on calling the nearby Vet Centers today or tomorrow, I appreciate the link. Poking around the VFW and VA websites just kept leading me to hotlines.

Just here to vent; no plans on self harm or harming others.

In the past two weeks, my mom was told she has 12 months left, at best, due to her bad heart. Her defib went off again today and she is being stubborn about it. She's too old for a transplant, and implanting a cardiac pump might extend her another three to five years; if she makes it through the surgery.

My ex-wife, actually her attorney, 'didn't like how the divorce went', and tried reopening a bunch of stuff. Nevermind that this was finalized four years ago.

My ex-wife, (again) was exposed to covid at work, and tested positive. Currently not showing any symptoms, but with it possibly being transmitted to my kids, I miss out on Thanksgiving with them.

My younger brother tested positive for covid, and is fighting with the loss of taste and fever, sweating, and chills.

My other brother has gone off on his meds, again, stressing out my parents.

Plus side, I hit four years sobriety on the 9th.

This loving sucks.

Congrats on sobriety?

Honestly, I know the x amount of time left thing sucks. Hit me (or a more active person) up if you need anything.

Edit: That may have come across poorly. You freaked me out, the get help thread has been quiet lately and I was spooked.

Seriously, hit me up via PM if needed, I log on pretty regularly.

I'm just gonna kind of vent about 2020 a little bit since we are almost in the last year of the year (no typos in that sentence; i expect december to last as long as january through november did).

I had so many loving plans. I still have tix to a few concerts that I was going to go to. In January and February, I was getting out of my apartment every single weekend, staying out all day taking pictures. I was making friends. I was hanging out with people. I was actually building relationships -- which my life has lacked since 2012. I haven't had friends in a long, long time (mostly by choice at first, but carried by crippling depression, low self esteem, and as a result social anxiety). I even went on the first date I had been on in years. YEARS!!!!!

Last Christmas I was by myself. I made the promise to myself to not spend Christmas 2020 alone. Typing that sentence made me burst into tears. I'm so loving lonely. But for the first time since I tried to kill myself, I was doing something about it. And then the goddamn rug had to get pulled out from under me -- from under all of us. And our dipshit president just made it worse. WE COULD HAVE BEEN FINE BY THE SUMMER AND I COULD'VE DONE EVERYTHING I loving PLANNED TO DO!!!!

I spent Thanksgiving alone and slept for most of the day because of how depressed I was.

I don't want to be lonely for another loving holiday. I don't want to be lonely for another loving holiday. I don't want to be lonely for another loving holiday. I don't want to be lonely for another loving holiday. I don't want to be lonely for another loving holiday. I don't want to be lonely for another loving holiday. I don't want to be lonely for another loving holiday. I don't want to be lonely for another loving holiday. I don't want to be lonely for another loving holiday. I don't want to be lonely for another loving holiday. I don't want to be lonely for another loving holiday. I don't want to be lonely for another loving holiday. I don't want to be lonely for another loving holiday. I don't want to be lonely for another loving holiday. I don't want to be lonely for another loving holiday.

You are not alone in being alone. I spent 2019 New Years Eve alone in a hotel. I spent my birthday in ROM. I extended my stay on my ship so I wouldn't spend the holidays in ROM again.

At least you got Monty. I can't really hug anyone on this dumb ship unless they are leaving. Human or pet contact would be nice.

I can't imagine life alone anymore and I'm so sorry.

I can understand plans falling apart, and life feels like punishment sometimes; but i keep going and every day can change your life if you let it.

But seriously, despite any slap fights and drama, I like most of y'all and I wish I could do more to be a good buddy to y'all since this place is essentially my VFW.

I feel like I could do more to make this poo poo a bit more of a "real place" for y'all and myself, because when I was isolated and depressed, internet refuges were real enough to me to get me through the worst days, but I had wished there were more positive peeps and personal connections, so I hope that I could I some way bring that to the table for the folks that want it.

I hope I can start a discussion with y'all about it because my own anxieties are alleviated most by making something happen, but being super ADHD, coming up with a realistic plan is not always my strong suit.
