I just heard that a former workmate and a once close friend has passed. Sadly we lost touch a while back, but I thought of her often and with affection. She had become increasingly dependent on alcohol to get through the work day, and in the end it caught up with her. I will remember her as the vibrant and giving person she once was.
Wow I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. I have to admit I don’t find the work stressful, so I’m curious to know what about modeling/camming got to her? We all have to look out and take care of ourselves no matter the occupation…I hope you’re dealing alright Pimms and that your friend is happy and peaceful now.
Thanks for the kind words and thought everyone. It is indeed a sad fact of life that some people are just less able to cope with stress. She had had issues with body image in the past and I’m pretty sure some kind of eating disorder too. I’m doing okay now, feeling grateful for what and who I have in my life.
Oh Pimms, I’m so sorry to hear this. I’m sending you a virtual hug right now!
The job can indeed be stressful but I personally try to keep calm and when I have some free time, I read a book, go shopping, visit my family and friends so that I won’t be tempted to endanger myself because it’s not worth it.
Pimms, I’m sorry to hear of your loss and hope you will accept my condolences. I lost a parent to alcoholism a few years back, so I can sympathize with what you must have been going through when this happened. I hope you are doing better now and coming to terms with your friend’s passing.
