The Buddy System

Recommended Posts

Serious questions in light of recent events and the ever present evidence of mental illness on the boards. 

 

Do you have a board buddy? Someone you can talk to off the boards if need be? A legit person, not someone from a questionable alt if something were to happen to you? 

                                                                                                                  (Or if you just want to take a break from the boards so nobody thinks you're dead.)

I've worried about people here before, even recently. Not sure that naming them would be helpful. I don't feel like I know them well enough to put myself out there for them as a board buddy but maybe i should if it doesn't seem like they have anyone else like that here. 

Thank you for making this thread, this is an important thing to think about.

Nope.

If I suddenly disappear for an extended time, assume our Internet connection's fucked and the ISP is taking their sweet time fixing it, or, I somehow got a life.

This should probably be a thing and it isn't.

Buddy knows how to find me, so does a few others on Xbox… wacky does too…. Umm… Disco and Pooh do, I think?

My name, honored upon me by slyfoxxx, was the comfort negro. At one time I was the receiver of many PMs from users who honestly found me approachable, and a willing ear. 

I think I was babbling's default board "buddy" but again, I was a nice guy among babblers, which meant I was still a huge jerk.

As of now, if anything pressing happens, I'll let Sawdy know, and if anything happens and if I'm unable to contact him, several users are on my FB, which is also full of my friends from the noseiest town in the South and my wall will be full of info. 

I hereby give Pooh or disco full permission to tell of my death if it happens....I would say boo but she's not around as often.

As I've been off-board for medical things in the past, there is one person on the boards that I have contact info that I've texted in the past so people don't have to freak out too much.

No worries, bruv.

Keep that info on the low though.

Damn vampire hunters are hella persistent.

I like this idea!

But no buddy.

Pat got to read my nonsense at one point but that was on the boards.

also - I’m not that active to be noticed - just on discord.

I'm still alive - although to be honest, I don't think anyone gives a shit. It's bnmjy. I'm just not that into this community anymore. Been coming here less and less. So if I stop coming here, just assume I've completely lost interest. A few people have my contact info, so.

I do have a morbid mental health tale, that doesn't particularly involve me, but did affect me, if you guys are interested.

Good enough.

This happened like two weeks after my main was banned, back in April. My upstairs neighbor, the one directly above my unit, had killed himself. I was sleeping under his corpse for four days until he was discovered. I wasn't that close with him. I just know when his husband died last year, he became for depressed and reclusive. I think he also wasn't able to afford rent anymore, as he talked about moving. Still, the apartments really aren't that expensive, so he must have fallen on some very hard times. I know he was also a baton twirler in the gay parades that happen this time of year.

I'm usually on the other end of such things.

No one here is important enough to be noticed. Even with so few of us, a user can be gone for weeks and usually one person will go "hey, where's _____".

Sponges was gone for over a month before I noticed, I have no clue how long kudz has been missing, and I only noticed Sorce was missing when there was so many women's issues happening but she was in none of the threads.

Know who I'd notice was gone (gonna stroke this kid's ego some more) Seight....

His 6am meme posts are legit how I start my day.....

*Sees seight post*

Fuck, must be time to get up.

I thought I could have Nabs as my buddy, but who knows if he's even going to have access to the boards on any given day?

I'm sure I'm probably a member that you think needs a board buddy. Pretty sure I don't have one of those, but I don't want one either. If I truly felt I needed one yeah maybe. I like I that idea I guess, and I have to give you props for the suggestion Vamped. ^_^

I am dealing with a lot irl, but my life has constantly been filled with dangerous struggles and situations to deal with..On top of being called some of the more 'out on a limb' members here's psychologist/shrink I probably have all that shit covered I guess, but that being said.. 

If anyone here truly feels at the end of their rope with their irl situations I believe my board history will reflect I have always offered as much. Well...Certain names that know who they are as well as every other acitve user here have voided that privilege unless I take it upon myself,

but my point remains..

Used to have a few people. 2 of them are no longer with us.

I don’t really have a board buddy. I’m not as active here as I used to be.

If someone wants/need to talk to me, they always can. I’m someone who is willing to listen and extend olive branches/hands/ears/help/compassion, regardless of history, creed, ideals, preferences, etc.
There’s only 1 exception to this, but we don’t have to worry about that here, praise be to Cthulhu.

Nah, I have some that used to post here but I don't talk to anyone active offboard. Pretty sure a few of you are on friends on PSN/Steam/Switch though.

When I'm going through stuff I mention it. But when shit really hits the fan, I avoid people. Both IRL and online.

I think it's because I don't want to lie when someone asks me how I'm doing. 

 

But this is a good idea.

Also. Just wanna add some humor in this

It's pretty bad when you're part of an online community where we need a buddy system.

XD

well ... I just suggested it because there's so few of us, plus there was a history of suicide even on ASMB. I dunno ... just in case anyone was struggling. 

 

Or even if it was .... hey I'm not dead, just moved on (physically not spiritually XD)

Yes. I think we can all agree that it sucks.

Not really.  If I died or something I might swing by a few people's Facebook.  Not much else might happen....
