the workload

Just got a load of stuff from the Self Harm Alliance through the mail (for job-related reasons) ... it contained lots of stuff about being understanding, and how horribly traumatic everything is, and about what self-harm isn't, but not a whole lot about what it is, or what can be done about it (if you want to). I'll never figure out how to stop pulling out my hair. *sigh* On the pile for tomorrow. It did, however, have one of the best-named charities ever in its resources list, the campaign against living miserably. Sorry, only open to men aged 15-24.

Feeling paranoid?

Letting you know what they're likely to know about you; the Office of Surveillance Commissioners. Of course it's probably just what they want you to think that they're likely to know about you.

I can't tell you how much that's cheered me up.

apparently they're one of the groups most at risk from suicide
... the rest of us presumably having figured out how to cope with living miserably. Or something. I don't know, I think the campaign against living miserably sounds more like a pro-suicide group than anything else.

If you mouseover the email addresses in their personals section, you'll find that a couple of somewhat contradictory ads lead to the same hotmail address (assuming that the person looking to experiment with men is a man).

I could ask you why -
- you were looking through the Gay Cumbria, Weardale & Derwentside personal ads, but why pry?

(From a practical perspective, many personal ad services offer their users some sort of neutral mail-box)
