“I feel that life is measured in achievement, not in years alone.”

Luckily I’m still in good standing, but today is emotionally draining because of one particular job, at which I’m still stuck.

Basically, this 20-something guy took his own life because he was bullied for being gay. Now his parents are having us clean out his apartment.... which still has a bullet hole in the wall. This whole situation hits really close to home (I’ve lost people to suicide and I’m LGBT myself) and I’m having trouble keeping it together. I think I’m going to take tomorrow off.

This really sucks. I’ve done cleanouts of deceased people’s things before, but they had always been old people who died naturally. I don’t know if I can handle anything like this again.
