I just learned that one of my friends on Facebook was planning to commit suicide last week. He was saved by a friend that simply showed up and took him out of his element for a while. She didn't even know he was struggling.

Remember, simple little gestures of kindness can be the difference between life and death at times.

You are not alone. There is always someone who will be there for you. ❤️

#SuicideAwareness

Scochrane26 Suicide is scary. As a therapist working w/ kids, it‘s scary how young they can start having thoughts & attempts. We screen all the time, but a lot of times, it comes out of the blue. 1w
TheReadingMermaid I'm also dropping this for whoever needs it. You can look up phone numbers by country... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_suicide_crisis_lines 1w
AmyG The holiday season can be so hard. @Scochrane26 my daughter is a school counselor in not a great area. It takes a toll dealing with young, suicidal kids. Heartbreaking. 1w

Scochrane26 @AmyG yes, it does take a toll, it‘s a lot of responsibility. I typically work in not great areas, too. Our area has added a lot more mental health people into the schools, so hopefully, each kid or teen has someone to go to. 1w
Leftcoastzen My heart goes out to you and your friend.I‘m glad someone showed up , I hope things improve. 1w

I'm trying so hard to focus on this. Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been that active on Litsy recently. Well it's because a lot of dirt has been kicked up recently and things have been said that have really hurt my feelings. I won't go into detail, but needless to say, I just don't need crap like past events being rehashed on a public forum where people think I can't see. It's not kind. ⬇️⬇️⬇️

TheReadingMermaid In fact it's downright mean. We need to remember that we are living, breathing human beings behind our screens and we should be treating each other with love and compassion. As readers we should remember that words hurt. And that hurt is real. Let's all try to keep our posts and comments positive and loving towards 1 another. Trying to stay positive myself. 1w

Skeebies05 And Litsy is supposed to be a place of positivity! I‘m sorry that happened to you. 🤗 hugs. 1w
nelehelen I‘m so sorry for what you‘re going through. There will be negative people everywhere and it is incredibly disappointing to see that happen in this online community. I agree we should all be much kinder to one another. You have my support and love! ♥️ 1w
MoonWitch94 My heart breaks to hear this. This community is supposed to lift up each other—especially because we should understand the power & magnitude of words. I am so sorry to hear this. Sending love & peace to you. ♥️☮️ 1w
Kimberlone Sorry to hear! I always enjoy your content and positivity on Litsy! #Scarathlon made my October more enjoyable than usual as I‘m not a huge Halloween person usually. Please stick around! 1w
JacqMac I noticed you‘ve been missing. I hoped it wasn‘t because of something awful. I‘m sorry this happened to you. I don‘t like it when Litsy goes bad. It‘s supposed to be a safe and happy place. You are valued and you are missed. Many hugs. 💕 1w
SaturnDoo ❤Keep your head held high. You bring so much fun and positivity to your fellow Littens. There are more of us who love, miss and appreciate your beautiful face 🤗 than the few bad apples trying to bring you down. You're our breath of fresh air 🌬 and our rays of 🌞 Keep 😊 and carry on my friend❤❤❤ 1w
Prairiegirl_reading Personally we haven‘t interacted that much but my theory is post what you like and have fun. Let the complainers be miserable. It‘s really easy to scroll past what we don‘t like but those people chose to criticize. What a miserable life. Don‘t let anyone dull your sparkle. 🤗 1w
Stacypatrice 🤗💖🤗💖 1w

Laughterhp I‘m sorry to hear this. I think you‘re great. Sending positive vibes 💚💚 1w
IamIamIam Aww, that's unfortunate!! Don't let other people's meanness affect something you love! I know it's hard to focus on the good when you're stuck in the mire but you're bigger and better than whatever is dragging you down. 🤗 1w
Mimi28 I love this place and I am heartbroken 💔💔that this happened to you!! I post a ton of personal stuff on here and get nothing but support back that‘s why I am so shocked. What book did you write? May I check it out? I‘m sure it‘s AWESOME!! Bullies are usually jealous and see something in you they wish they had- or had the guts to have. I hope this community is respectful from here on out. Just know that people who support you are the majority ❤️❤️ 1w
Soubhiville ❤️ I appreciate you and hope to see you here again soon. 1w
Cailey_Mac Awww I‘m sorry that happened to you! I really do think people forget that there are humans on the other end of the comments section, and (hopefully) wouldn‘t be so rude and just plain mean if said in person; I know it‘s happened to me in a different book group, and it was really disheartening as you think you‘re in a safe place to express yourself and bam! Definitely stick around, don‘t let them win with their careless comments💕 1w
Eggs Yes, doll, I‘ve wondered what happened! I miss you 😘 I hate to hear of negativity and meanness on Litsy😳! Remember, those who matter, don‘t mind. And those who mind, don‘t matter. 1w
NeedsMoreBooks I am sorry to hear that you faced such negativity. Sending love, hugs, and positive vibes. I hope that you will be here ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 1w
Jesstifies Aww man! I had so much fun during Oct with you and the scarathlon! I hope you‘re feeling good today despite the challenges! :D 1w
AnansiGirl Your absence has been noticed. So sorry you‘re dealing some negativity atm. Sending you light and hugs to cheer you up. 💖🤗 1w
4thhouseontheleft That is too bad you are feeling anguish over this. As for my part, what I said was done publicly with full knowledge and hope you would see it. I had a lot of questions from participants over the similarities and confusion between the names of screamathon and scarathlon names, and decided to let people know publicly that I had asked you back in July to change the name of your challenge so it wouldn't be confusing to people. ⬇ ⬇ 7d
4thhouseontheleft I only did so, not because I don't like scarathlon, I participated and had fun, but because Screamathon had already been happening for 3 years, and I wanted to prevent confusion. I thought a simple hashtag name change before the challenge launched would have been easy. Yes, there was negativity towards both challenges after they wrapped...to each their own. I just ignore and move on. If anything I said was taken as you by a personal insult, ⬇ 7d
4thhouseontheleft I apologize, as that was not the intention. 7d
TheReadingMermaid @4thhouseontheleft oh sweetheart nothing you did offended me in any way. You are just fine honey. Love your heart ❤️ 4d

🌟Please comment or post a picture of something that you are most thankful for.❤️ Use the hashtag and tag me! 😘

Emilymdxn I‘m grateful for so much that‘s happened to me this year - ppl who‘ve listened to my rants will know that I was unemployed a while, had to move back in with my parents and it‘s taken a while to build up to moving out.

Very very grateful for this community being with me while I‘ve made it here 1mo

Dear Fellow Littens, for those who may be unaware, the website version of Litsy allows you to mute hashtags. Here's how to do it: Go to your profile on the PC and hit Settings. Scroll down to the very bottom and you will see what is pictured above. You can edit and/or remove any hashtag you like. The hard-working people behind the scenes have given us many great tools so we can control our own news feeds. Please take advantage of these tools 😁👍

Kimberlone Thanks for sharing! Looks like a lot of people missed this update when the @Litsy account posted about it months ago when this function went live. I muted a few hashtags back then and it‘s definitely made my feed better for me! 1mo
Pamwurtzler Thanks for sharing! I‘m definitely trying that! 1mo
ljuliel Thanks for posting this. It doesn‘t work for me for some reason. I can‘t add any mute hashtags, but it‘s ok. I‘ll just skim over stuff I‘m not interested in. 1mo
julesG Thanks for reminding me. So far I haven't come across any hashtags I'd like to mute. Lucky me! 1mo

eri.reads This is great news; u were a fabulous host! Sorry for falling off near the end...a friend of my boys was murdered in front of his home the weekend b4 Halloween and it was extremely difficult. He was only 19 years old; funeral was yesterday. It wreaked havoc w/the joy I have for this holiday, but I'm glad so many of our teammates had such a great time playing this during the mth. I had a wonderful time up to that point. Thank u @TheReadingMermaid 1mo
TheReadingMermaid @eri.reads OMG honey I just don't even know what to say to that. Is everyone else okay or are you okay is everyone mourning, dealing with it okay? 1mo
eri.reads It def hit my boys/hubby the worst. My hubby also coached them all in AAU summer bball league from about age 10 as well so he was practically part of the fam...here at the house a lot. It's truly heartbreaking and it's been difficult to say the least. We're picking the pieces up, but it's hard when there are no answers yet as to who did this/why. For now we're trying to stay busy and I'm trying to get back to some sense of normalcy. It's tough. 💔 1mo
TheReadingMermaid @eri.reads sweetie I am just so sorry. I don't know what else to say but I'm just so sorry. If you ever need to talk I'm here. ❤️🤗❤️ 1mo

The author does a good job in describing her own musings but that is nearly the only thing that I like about this book.

Please read my full review here:
https://thereadingmermaidsreviews.weebly.com/book-reviews/near-the-exit-by-lori-...

Battledoll Well that‘s appalling and disappointing. I have Caitlin Doughty‘s book “From Here to Eternity” on my TBR list, which seems like a similar concept except it‘s well researched and respectful. 1mo
TheReadingMermaid @Battledoll it was very disappointing and as I said in my review some parts of it downright pissed me off. I really wish that she would have not written of these things in such a poor light. Like you said I wish you would have been a little more respectful. Also I heard that one was very good 1mo
UnidragonFrag Lame. Won't be reading this one. I have Caitlin Doughty's From Here to Eternity, but haven't read it yet. The way she talks on her YouTube channel and a few podcasts I've heard her on, I can't imagine her book would be disrespectful at all, so that's probably a better bet. 1mo

These are probably the simplest thing to make for Halloween and yet so enjoyable.

Simply gather your pumpkin seeds, clean them off in the sink in a holy bowl, then spread them out on a cookie sheet that has been lined with tin foil. Lightly salt the seeds throughout and place them in the middle of the oven at 325° for about 20 minutes or until nice and brown. Enjoy!

Dracula | Bram Stoker
post image

#TeamStoker it's time to have our discussion about our buddy read for the month!!! Here's a couple topics I would like us all to consider:

1. How does the book pit science and reason against superstition and the occult?
2. How do changes in the weather and atmosphere influence your reading experience when it comes to setting the tone?
3. What surprises did you find in this book? Is this your first time reading or a reread?

🌟5pts/comment 🌟

jb72 I‘ve read Dracula about two or three times. I love listening to the version with Tim Curry. 1mo
See All 32 Comments
jb72 Personally I think the time of year can influence our reads. It‘s getting darker sooner and with a chill in the air it can certainly make a book feel scarier or more suspenseful. It‘s no different than reading beach reads in the summer to feel relaxed. 1mo
Kimberlone This was my second time reading/listening (and I‘m still trying to finish up today!). I really enjoyed it the first time I read it in high school and have been appreciating the reread this month. I love epistolary novels and books with framing devices, and Dracula is definitely one of the best examples of this writing style. 1mo
Laughterhp This is the first time I‘ve read Dracula. I‘m glad I‘ve finally gotten a chance to read it. 1mo
Laughterhp I definitely think weather can influence your reading. If I tried to read this in May, I probably would have had a different experience. But reading this during the fall where it‘s getting gloomy out, it made the book more atmospheric. 1mo
Kimberlone With regards to question #1 I think Stoker does a great job of highlighting the conflict between science/reason and superstition/occult. You have men of learning like Jonathan Harker and Dr. Seward who fight accepting the obviously supernatural things that are happening at first. Then there‘s Van Helsing who is a learned professor but who is also an expert in vampires and the occult. 1mo
Kimberlone Mina is my favorite character because she is the one who brings all the threads of the story together into the book by piecing together everyone‘s accounts 1mo
Kimberlone #2 the weather outside doesn‘t really impact my mood that much, although I will feel not as guilty about spending a lot of time reading if the weather is nasty. Stoker does a great job of using weather in Dracula to set the tone, though. In particular I am thinking of the terrible storm that Lucy and Mina witness in Whitby that is caused by Dracula‘s arrival 1mo
Ericalambbrown It's been at least 30 years since I've read this book. I kept thinking about how the film Bram Stoker's Dracula actually wasn't Bram Stoker's Dracula. 🤣 I found myself thinking a lot about the need film makers have had to romanticize Dracula when he is in no way a good guy. He's basically a devious, immortal serial killer. (edited) 1mo
IndoorDame I read a piece of commentary that really struck me which said that this novel was really revolutionary for its time, in its portrayal of science/vs. the occult (and feminist) because the men can‘t succeed without Mina, the count can‘t advance his interests without embracing modern technology, and the scientists can‘t defeat him without accepting some of the supernatural rituals 1mo
IndoorDame I always get drawn deeper into a story if the weather outside in some way mirrors the weather or tone in what I‘m reading. This isn‘t the first time I‘ve read Dracula, and I‘m pretty sure the first time was in the winter because I think I of It as a winter novel, and all the elements that make it one probably wouldn‘t be as prominent in my memory I if it hadn‘t been cold and stormy outside while I was reading it. 1mo
Ericalambbrown @Kimberlone Same, re: Mina being your fave character. And she‘s not just decorative either. The other characters sometimes treat her as if she is but the story doesn‘t. 1mo
JacqMac I love this story, but it‘s the first time I have actually read it. I don‘t know why I put it off for so long. 1mo
JacqMac I always read more when the weather is icky. And I‘m always a mood reader. The weather influences my mood and my mood influences what and how much I read. Always. The gloomy days really help with the scary reads. 1mo
ElizaMarie This was my first read and I was really surprised I had never read it. I enjoyed cuddling up and reading it late at night with the ability to let my mind wander and get sucked into that world. I loved how important women were in the story. And really enjoyed how it went into the medical procedure of the blood transfusions. It was such a gripping story! (Thanks for marking it our read) 1mo
Caroline2 This was my first time reading and I was pleasantly surprised. Although I preferred reading it from Mia‘s perspective then when it kept chopping and changing. 1mo
CoffeeCatsBooks I think there is nothing better than reading on a rainy day. It is especially fitting with horror, fairy tales, or dystopian fiction. 1mo
CoffeeCatsBooks I‘ve read Dracula at least 3x previously 1mo
Chili This was a reread for me. I always picture Dracula looking like Bela Lugosi, so the book‘s description of Dracula just seems wrong to me. 1mo
Chili I always tend to read more when the weather gets bad. Especially in the winter when the temperature is below zero. I hibernate with books. I also tend to choose darker books. 1mo
Marmie7 This is my 2nd reading. This time I listened to the audible version and enjoyed it much more! OCT is my fav reading month and I tend to get the most reading done during this month. 1mo
Skygoddess1 This was my second time reading Dracula. I first read it in college and remember hating it because I found it so slow and I was used to Francis Coppola‘s adaptation. Listening to the story on audio I found I actually enjoyed it a lot more and was even able to picture different scenes from the movie while listening. October is the one month when I primarily focus on reading all things horror themed, so reading Dracula worked for the season. 1mo
Skygoddess1 I also loved reading this after finally listening to Carmilla by J. Sheridan ale Fanu, the book that is said to have inspired Bram Stoker in his writing of Dracula. It was fun to do a kind of comparison and contrast between the two. 1mo
BookwormAHN I think this book shows how science and reason can't account for everything and that sometimes you should listen to superstitions. 1mo
BookwormAHN Atmosphere and weather can definitely help create an intensity or a lightness to a scene. 1mo
BookwormAHN This was my second time reading Dracula and it always surprises me how quick Dracula's death is. 1mo
Jadams1776 Some of the characters who are deeply ingrained in science and reason have a hard time coming to grips with the supernatural. There are just some things that cannot be explained by science. 1mo
Jadams1776 Reading a spooky book on a sunny day just isn‘t the same as reading a spooky book on a dark and dreary day. 1mo
Jadams1776 This was a re-read for me, but the first time as an audiobook. I really enjoyed the experience of listening to the story. 1mo
