Double checking names and pictures...
My name isn’t any of these names.
That’s so terrible to hear. I saw the post and was equally concerned. I hope suicide isn’t confirmed and that he’s just going through a rough phase. A little over a year ago I was suicidal and dangerous writing, among other changes I made, helped pull me out of it. You’re doing a great thing Chuck. Please keep it up. We’re all grateful for it.
I only know that the first photo’s mother is named Missy Eliot. And you spell Colton with two o’s.
This week seems like a walk in a familiar bad dream. I’m praying the man has gotten help.
Chuck once mentioned the High and he gets from writing. Now he reminds me of another reason to write; to exhaust emotion. It’s my sincere hope that whoever it is is OK and just taking time to themselves.
Hey, Chuck. Krissy Eliot is the proper spelling. Thank you.
And also, oh shit. What else is there to say but that really fucking sucks.
Hi Chuck. He reached out yesterday to me. Busy, stressful week, sorry maybe my message to Dennis the other day didn’t convey he was definitely ok. I wasn’t completely sure until yesterday.
Person in the first photo: I love your shirt
To the other news, gee, I don't know what much I can say besides that I hope you are well, too
Yeah, the school shit is hard for me. Michael received 38 titanium staples at age 18 from violence at school just six months before Sandy Hook. I'm happy Erik's gonna be ok tho.
Heartbreaking to hear these things, but poignant words and advice. Thank you, Chuck.
Well wishes to all. There’s always a way through.
Thanks for checking in, Chuck - and for being genuine.
Stay hydrated, everyone. Hydration is key.
Like many (all?) people in this sub, I've had my share of rough experiences that have weighed on me. Since I was a teenager, I always thought writing about it would help me get through it. Chuck, your 2018 interview on Joe Rogan affirmed these feelings, and just this past winter I finished the first draft of a novel, based on things that happened that I found too complicated and too hard to discuss in any other medium. This small, but important (to me) accomplishment is due in part to the insights you've shared and the community you've created. They have given me the inspiration to get it done. Thank you so much. I hope one day I can join you all in Portland.
for the photo of the audience—the girl in the green beanie is my partner Miranda Rehaume :) yay miranda!
‘Tis the week that reminds me that impulse is a knee-jerk humans can learn to regulate from inside themselves—most else can be regulated by anyone but ourselves, outside, if need be.
Oh my goodness. Just terrible. Let me know if any of you guys need anything, Homies!
