"TRIG"

I just wanted everyone to know that Tommy "Trig" Simpson was laid to rest last week. Many of us have discussed this in private messages, but I also wanted to let everyone else know, as I know many people interacted with him here.

Tommy killed himself. I can't put it any simpler than that. For those of us that knew him, that is horrifying in of itself, knowing how much life he had in him.

What I would like people to understand, from what I know, is never, ever stop taking prescription anti-deppressents without discussing it with your physician.

Nobody will ever know what drove him to it, but it may have been a factor enough to just consider it. Know what your taking and understand how to ramp off of them.

I hope he Rests in Peace.

RIP, Trig.

We had some conversations about life and education.

I noticed he was gone for awhile and asked him about it. He said he was taking care of some personal stuff. I should have listened more carefully.

Brother, hope you found your peace.

Hasta.

This board and the world outside of it is a lesser place with your departure.

Rest in Peace, Brother.

A true shame to make a permanent solution to a temporary problem-

if you are reading this and need to talk to someone, there are hundreds of people on this board who will listen without judgment...

Amen. A-fucking-men.
You don't always see this kind of shit coming
But
Reach out. To someone. Hell, find *me*. I'm just me, but if any of you dudes want to talk through some demons, I'm available. So are others.

Anti-depressants especially are a dangerous motherfucker. If you're trying to get off of them, don't do that shit alone. If you're fighting that, say the word, someone will be hopping a redeye riki tik. Even if you're cool now, but you know a fight is coming, reach out. It's not a sign of weakness, dont believe that bullshit. Even the hardest motherfucker has had someone watching his six at some point.

I can't pretend to know what demons one faces with or without anti-depressants, with or without legit PTSD, or what have you. But I'd surmise I speak for many when I say, it doesn't matter if it's day, night, or any hour in between, you call we pick up.
