Depression is a Killer

I'm very sad to hear this.

Unfortunately, I understand how she must have been feeling and how this could happen. It's not a mystery to me at all. Depression, and most especially depression when you are a hyper-sensitive person, can be a killer. I'm thankful I have had someone who loves me and is able to pull me out of those dark times.

She made me these knitted gloves back in January of 2013.
I still love them.

My heart goes out to the people who loved her. I hope she's in a happier place and is no longer feeling that awful feeling of sadness and despair.

  1. Hearing this news was really hard for me as well. I "met" Wink because she shared her story with me about crochet and depression. I feel so sad about her loss. And so many other emotions because of how it ripples through my own life and experience with depression.

    Just reaching out to send love and hugs your way.

  2. Depression is a terrible debilitating illness. I think we as a society do not treat depression and other forms of mental illness very well. It's so tragic and heart breakingly sad to see lovely souls suffer and in despair take their own lives . I can't imagine the pain her family and friends are going through. Stay well Pammy Sue.

  7. I still can't believe what happened and I still hope and want to be a very bad joke and someone to come and tell us that Wink is still alive .
    Can't be true she's no longer here ...
    RIP, Wink.

  8. A very sad day yesterday when I read the news and wept. Then I turned to another blog, 'Going Gently' and wept again to read John Gray's account of his beloved Meg's final journey to the vet.
    I struggle with depression too, but my grown up children keep me going.

    Pammy Sue, you make me smile (and laugh out loud sometimes) and I can't wait for your New Home stories. Have a good trip.

  10. It is so very sad. She was so talented and so very young. What a real loss not just to the crochet world, but the world in general, too. I picture her in Heaven teaching everyone to crochet. Prayers of comfort to her family and friends. I like what her little sister wrote on her blog, that they'd see each other again in Heaven. :)

  11. I too was so sad to hear about Wink we have lost someone very special and I will miss her very much my thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. Depression is very hard to deal with and although I too have suffered in the past thankfully I have managed to come out of it but I have a close family member who has it too and trying to keep him afloat is a daily challenge. Xx

  16. Depression is so underrated. I've been battling it since the mid 90s. I sometimes think the only thing that pulls me through is that there are people who need ME. I shudder to think what would happen if I ever lost them. Condolences to Wink's family; I wish Wink knew how much she was appreciated.
