temporary hiatus

This blog will be on hiatus for a few days, possibly up to one week.  A family emergency has sprung up and I have to make an unexpected trip.  I have to pack light, so the laptop will not be accompanying me.

I leave you with the victorianindustrial musical creations of Emilie Autumn, as well as information from suicide.org for those who harbor intense feelings and thoughts of suicide.  Remember, thoughts of suicide are a warning sign that there is something terribly wrong.  You are not supposed to feel that way.  Get help immediately.

And don't destroy a beautiful life (i.e. your life) without contacting anyonefirst- even if you need to contact me.

If you or someone you know is in immediate danger
because of thoughts of suicide

Please call 911 now
If you are not in the U.S., please call your local emergency number.
There is help for you. Stay on the phone with the operator and wait for help to arrive. Do not hesitate to call. Your life is extremely valuable, and people care about you. Please reach out for help. Never act on your thoughts of suicide. Never.

If you are not in immediate danger because of thoughts of suicide, but need someone to talk with about your suicidal feelings, please do not hesitate to call one of the following national suicide prevention lines:

1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433)
1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255)

Suicide Prevention Lines

You may call these suicide prevention numbers from anywhere in the United States, 24 hours a day. People are waiting to help you. Call a suicide prevention number right now if you need to. And always remember that it is never okay to act on your thoughts of suicide. Never. Again, call a suicide prevention number now if you need to.

Never act on your thoughts of suicide.
