After reading the suicide threat posted on Old West Ghost Investigations website, writing a post and Tweeting and FBing about it for help, I actually got some!
Facebook Fan Monica did some smart research and came up with a phone number for Melissa.
Let me back up a sec. After posting online for help, I had also sent Melissa an email asking if she was okay and giving her my phone number if she needed to talk to someone. (Normally I would not do this, but I don’t mess around with suicide. If someone’s at a point where they feel a need to make a statement about taking their own life, I’m putting the offer out there to be an ear if they need it!)
Anyway, so I was just about to call the number Monica shared when a reply email came back from Melissa.
PHEW! She was still alive. Mostly she was just pissed off because of some issues she’s had with a man she says is Internet stalking and harassing her –and has been for the last five years. She was fed up with something else he did a couple of days ago and just felt like if she put that out there he’d finally back off.
It all made me sad. I’ve had such great experiences with people I’ve met online. I’m sorry hers went so south.
But I can’t even tell you how happy my heart is that she’s still alive!
Monica, if you read this, thanks so much again for going to the trouble of helping like you did! That was very generous.
