My problems are tiny

We walked into work this morning to discover that a colleague committed suicide last night.*

I don't know what else to write. I keep deleting things.

It's a pretty weird day.

*No one I was particularly close to, although I did have pretty frequent contact with him/her.

Wow. I don't really know what to say either.

Sending sympathy for all the tough stuff to get through!

Belle said...

Yikes. Ditto.


Notorious Ph.D. said...

Holy fuck.

Jeez. Okay, so: perspective.

Hope you'll be okay.

Fie upon this quiet life! said...

Wow. That is awful. I'm really sorry to hear it.

Bardiac said...

My condolences. That is, indeed, awful. May your department folks be kind to each other.

What Now? said...

Awful. I'm sure this terrible event will continue to have ripple effects through your department and the school. As Bardiac says, I hope that everyone is kind and supportive to one another during this recovery period.

I'm so sorry. My heart goes out to you and your colleagues.
