So confused and sad. . .

Okay, I'm freaking out a little bit here!  One of my co-workers just committed suicide in our office.  I guess his fiancee was worried that he hadn't come home, so she drove to our office late at night and found him!  And the thing is, he was really intelligent, really  popular, really successful in his job, and ENGAGED!  I don't think anyone saw it coming and I can't believe he is gone! I can't imagine what his family and his fiancee are going through, please keep them in your thoughts.

  • Oh my goodness. That's horrible. It's amazing how the people we think are so secure and happy can end things like that.

    I'll keep his family and FI in my thoughts as well as your work family.

  • whoa. My jaw dropped when I read this and I'm shaking a little so I can't even imagine how you are feeling. My heart goes out to you and everyone involved. Whoa.
  • Oh, that is just horrible!!!  I'm sorry to hear.  Losing a co worker can be a lot like losing a member of the family; these are the people you almost see MORE than your own family and it can be a very devastating loss.

    It's a shame how some people who have it all can be torn up inside yet nobody will know.  Lots of T&Ps to his loved ones.  :(

  • My jaw literally dropped when I read this.  How tragic and sad.  That would totally have me very shaken up.  You just never know what is going on in someone's life, and what causes someone to feel so badly that they take their life.  Horrible.

  • Thanks for all of your comments girls!  It is a weird day at work, that is for sure. Still trying to find the silver lining amidst all of this darkness. . . I hope that this situation brings the rest of us closer together to build a more supportive work environment, science can be pretty cut-throat!
