    While we understand that Free Jinger is the internet "home" for many of our posters, Free Jinger is not a support board and therefore is not an appropriate place to seek out serious psychiatric advice or support. Free Jinger, and its staff are not equipped to deal with these situations. Any post threatening self-harm or suicide will be locked and the poster will be referred to appropriate resources.

    If you need help escaping an abusive or fundamentalist environment, please dial 2-1-1 in the US to reach the United Way, 1-800-363-9010 to reach the National Domestic Violence Hotline in Canada, or 116 123 in the UK to reach Samaritans. All are confidential and can provide links to local resources that can offer you a way out.

    The Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) is dedicated to the prevention of child abuse. Serving the United States, its territories, and Canada, the hotline is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with professional crisis counselors who, through interpreters, can provide assistance in over 170 languages. The hotline offers crisis intervention, information, literature, and referrals to thousands of emergency, social service, and support resources. All calls are confidential.

    If you are contemplating suicide, you do need to speak to a professional. Please call 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK in the US, 1-800-448-3000 in Canada, or 116 123 in the UK. You can also text 471471 to reach the US suicide hotline.

      The Berries were born in Highland Park Hospital. We went to the 4th of July Parade every year until we moved here. I’ve been crying all day. This is horrible. We are just waiting for a list of victims to make sure none of our old friends from those days were hurt. I HATE this.

      Already after the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, I was already NOT feeling 4th of July and felt it was ridiculous to celebrate. Now a mass shooting at a parade in a town nearby. Multiple fatalities. Everyone has to shelter in place in their homes, can't go outside, because shooter is still on the loose. Nearby towns canceling their celebrations due to public safety concerns. Wow guys, how free we are! What a great country we live in! Aren't you grateful for all this freedom?! /s
      The usa, what a fucking joke.

      Had some bad news out of Dubuque today - 3 teenagers were killed in a one car accident where the driver had been speeding and flipped his car. 
      I feel so sorry for their families and friends now.  It also brought back painful memories for me and some of my classmates because my junior year of high school three of our classmates were killed in an accident as well.   One I had known since elementary school.

      Hey FJers, long time. Sorry I've not posted in like forever - life just sometimes gets in the way.
      During the lockdown, I did various temporary jobs (shelf stacking in Wilko, and also working from home doing call centre type stuff, including Test and Trace) but hope to go busking soon. I need to practise my set as my guitar/singing has got a bit rusty!
      Since I last posted, I have become a cat mum! My housemate with Lilith had to move abroad and wasn't able to take her with him, so I inherited her. She'll be two in August but still looks and acts like a kitten. I love her more than life itself.
