In Topic: Long time personal friend of Woggie

06 September 2016 - 06:05 AM

Hey. I remember you, although I don't think we spoke more than once or twice. I was probably 15 and sulking at a computer in a small Australian town. For the juxtaposition: currently finishing a small cry for an old friend over my iPhone in a sandwich shop outside the Tower of London.

Ryan meant a lot to me and I think about him frequently, as I did when he was alive. He always encouraged me to write, although not to study. I dedicated my PhD thesis to him when I started it in 2010 but I didn't submit it until 2014. Dedication stayed the same. We didn't communicate much after 2011 but I always intended to send him the damn thing so he knew what he'd done for me.

I managed a mental health/suicide prevention campaign for young men in remote areas of New South Wales in 2014. It was a good (in some ways brutal) thing to do. I like to think I've found some peace with his death, and sometimes I'm sure I have. This is the first time I've posted on GTU about it.

It is good to know that the sadness felt by GTUers was received. Thanks for letting us know.
