My brother is no longer missing

The primary forum for general discussion of Hipinion.com

He's in Seattle for work and called my sister at 3 AM west coast time, sounding suicidal. She made him promise to get some sleep and then come home right away. He said he would. Since then nobody has been able to get in touch with him. His phone's off. We didn't know where he was staying, and his company wouldn't tell us. Eventually my mom got in touch with his boss, who is attempting to track him down. But so far we still don't even know where he is to have someone check on him.

He's been hospitalized a couple times in the past year for this kind of thing but had seemed ok the past couple times I saw him, most recently at Thanksgiving. I'm not super encouraged. It's entirely possible that he really is having a rough recovery day. But he might also be in the hospital or dead!

He also deleted or inactivated his Facebook, which people are treating as a portent of doom but which frankly sounds like a positive step to me.

He turned 38 a couple days ago. I'm sure there was some taking stock involved. He had an episode like this just before his birthday last year.

I'm not sure if there's anything people could do to help.

I'd assume it was a security thing, yeah. It makes sense. But until my mom got on the phone with his boss it was kind of a black box about what if anything they were able to do.

Massive sigh of relief: they must have gotten through to him at the hotel because he finally texted my sister to say he's okay, and is apparently angry about the hubbub. Which is TOO FUCKING BAD.

Glad he’s okay. He’s the same age and locale as me. I haven’t left my bed/couch/apartment in 3 days and am in despair, maybe something is in the water
