I think we're okay now...
07-05-2000, 01:39 AM
Somebody BETTER tell me what the hell is happening!
07-05-2000, 01:40 AM
All of these people attended the DC Dopefest:
•the guy next to Sqrlcub who was wearing a name tag that said "Satan", but I wasn't fooled
•the gal next to pldennison
•yours truly (opus)
Do you want help emailing some of them to see if they are in DC now?
07-05-2000, 01:41 AM
We are okay now, folks.
Purplebear - We're okay.
Everyone: WE ARE OKAY!
If you want to know more, e-mail either purplebear or myself privately...
07-05-2000, 01:43 AM
CHief, it's someone on here, we all know and love. not fair to tell here who.
email me, I'll tell you there.
TA, yes, please. I'd really appreciate it a lot.
I've never been so scared in my life.........
I've got her talking again, a little to me. I'm trying to keep her online....
07-05-2000, 01:57 AM
Hope all is better.
07-05-2000, 01:59 AM
I've emailed everyone that I could find who was at the DC Dopefest. I told them to email you directly, or find this thread and call you at home. I hope that helps. If you have time, let me know what's going on. I want to help all I can.
07-05-2000, 02:05 AM
Okay, don't e-mail me.
I have to SLEEP!
E-mail da bear if you must but...

Silly Satan, I didn't email you...I already knew you were aware of what was going on.... :)

Thank you, everyone who called to help. I don't think I could've done anything more than I have. She has promised to not hurt herself.
Thank you so much TroubleAgain, for all your help. you did help.
I'm so sorry to scare you all like this. I just couldn't think of what else to do for her. She is a very dear person, and deserves so much better than she has gotten lately. thanks again for helping.

I'm happy that everything turned out okay. Since the crisis is over, I've taken the liberty of deleting your home phone number from your previous post. You never know what kind of wierdo might be reading the board.
07-05-2000, 07:30 AM
Just a comment in passing.
That was amazing.
I know now what they mean by an online community.
You guys are the best

If this person is in the bad of shape...you need to call someone and have this person commited if you think they would hurt themselves. No one on this board is equipped to handle a suicidal person. The best thing to do is call the local police department in the area and have them pick the person up and take them to the emergency room where they can get help.
Getting on a message board and trying to find a poster that lives close by is insane. You just don't have time for that. The next time it happens, and it probably will unless the person seeks help, could be the last.

My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.

Crap, I should have read the rest of the posts first. I saw that you were in need and would have done something sooner if I was here earlier. :(
Anyway, how is the weather where you are at? It is pretty nice here, only in the mid 80s although it is pretty humid. Did I tell you that walking out of the metro I have seen more cockroaches than I have ever seen in my entire life. I suppose they live in the grates or something. They are really gross and get pretty big. I only see them at night though, so I guess I will just have to close my eyes when walking around then.
I would like to hear the rest of the story if you would email me. I think I have an idea.
07-05-2000, 12:54 PM
PB, I live about 1/2 hour from DC. I can take the metro in. What do you need?
07-05-2000, 12:59 PM
Oops. I read the OP and that's it.
Glad to know your friend is okay. Or better, at least. Suicidal stuff is never fun.
PB, I'll be online and on email most of today if you want to talk.
07-05-2000, 02:10 PM
Something like that happened to me once. My best friend who lives in Buffalo told me she was going to kill herself and no matter what I said to her she was still going to go through with it. So when she signed off I got a friend who lived in New York to call 911 and gave her her address. The police got there just in time too. I'm glad everything worked out for you Purple Bear. Make sure your friend goes gets some help. She'll be better off for it. And she will thank you one day too.

Suicidal hotlines are the best places to call.
One time I was on a BBS & a girl was talking about her friend in the room who had took a bottle of pills & we told her what to do.
frankly, people who take pills like that are just being mean.
07-05-2000, 07:14 PM
Handy, don't forget these assholes that jump in front of trains, thus making me late for work :rolleyes:
There's a time and place for every remark, handy. This was not the time, nor the place.
07-05-2000, 07:31 PM
Probably too late now, but for future reference:
Call the police in your friends area, they will gladly go by and check up on him or her.
Maybe this would not have helped your situation (since I do not know what it was and it is not my business to know anyway) but just do not forget about the boys in blue. If you do not know the number of the cops in the other city and you cannot get it through information in time, just call 911 and they will get ahold of the police over there for you.
Never think that maybe a situation is not serious enough yet for the cops and do not worry about sending them over there for what turns out to be nothing. YOU NEVER KNOW. We get calls here all the time from family members up North wanting us to check on their elderly relatives. For no particular reason at all- they just want them to be checked up on. We do it.
