He went to my dentist.

The staff were talking about how in his documentary he was nude doing yoga and my dentist (who was really good looking) said me, "I want to see you do nude yoga."

I was like, WHAT?

She would just say crazy stuff like that once in a while.

Then she would sluff it off like nothing.

I like your dentist's style of humor.

I've been shitting on this thread, and rightfully so, but I will contribute or "share", as Mr. Van Driessen would say.

Having people I knew that ended their life is a heavy load to carry. Can't ever get them back and the things you wished you said or did can never be done. Years go by and all one would ever want is for them to be alive. People who end their life thinking they are worth nothing and life is too hard should just know how much they are missed by those around them.

People who commit suicide don't want to kill themselves.

They just want to be dead.

That is a big difference.

It's like asking a fat person if he wants to diet.

No, I want to be skinny.

Suicide is more about feeling than thinking.

The feeling that come from existence is too much.

actually, it's many times about something much more simple, like pain.

I often thought of killing myself during the four years I spent living with a broken back. it's like people say, the permanent solution to a temporary problem.

sometimes it's as simple as becoming totally and completely overwhelmed by the temporary problem and thinking death's the only way out.

it happens all too often really, suicide. more now with this "new normal". something not being discussed much.

i've lost a couple of friends to this since covid reared its ugly head. unfortunately.

Suicide is as old as time.

I say if you want to go, go.

Try to be considerate of the people who have to clean up your mess.

That is not a popular position, but I am not a popular guy.

Missing swell again yesterday to sit in an office
Getting frustrated because I know my body will only get worse with time.
I'm so out of surfing shape . even though im in prob best regular shape ever. Surfing fitness is an entirely different game
But i'm learning to cope better. Stopped drinking as much and trying to stay in communication w friends.
Might take up fishing more to get to the water when waves are bad.
