Thinking about Death

Got an email today from a friend who's concerned that he's been thinking about his death recently. Didn't go into details, but I know he has no physical problems. I suspect the last six months of staying home, with all of the gloom and doom we hear contributes to his negative feelings. Any ideas on how he can cope with these thoughts?

Is your friend in a position to help someone in need? A human, an animal, a tree? Doing something selfless and kind is the most life-affirming action I know, and I have suffered from clinical depression for 20 years.

Even buying a plant and taking care if it works. Especially if it's a plant that bears fruit. The pride and joy you get from that first tomato or hemp leaf is incomparable.

This R1 is the worst R1 in the history of the DL.

It's understandable why the depression has lasted 20 years if this is what modern medicine has contributed to what would be a biologically based disorder requiring treatments other than the golden rule (as the mothers and fathers who have committed suicide despite have their children need them demonstrate), but that's quite a separate issue from someone posting who is oblivious to the responsibilities of leaping into the R1 position and offering such advice.

The correct answer is, "Can I have his stuff, if you haven't called dibs, OP?"

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
