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.
