Around three years ago a colleague working at the same facility revealed to me in an afterhours meeting that he had purposefully been arranging his own death, and his advice to me was to do the same. We had been working on compartmentalised parts of the same project, but I had yet to acquire his intel, and he wouldn´t reveal anything more. Less than a month later I attended his funeral.
At that time there was a shake-up in staffing and part of the work that I had been engaged in was transferred out, so I could absorb some of my ex-colleague´s former duties. Not all, but some. I remember my wife asking abut another month later why I was having all these nightmares?
At this point, I would say I´ve absorbed about 80% of his former workload, and experienced about a 40% decline in health. The whole way I look at the world and life has changed, and unfortunately I´m now divorced.
To cut to the chase, there´s not a whole lot going on in the way of psych support because there´s no way I feel I can be honest during those psych debriefings, and what I´ve come to know now weighs heavily on my mind, especially since around 3 weeks ago I´m certain I saw my former ex-colleague alive and in uniform.
I´ve got to admit I´m at the point now where he was - but I can´t figure it out: did he tell me as a warning (to really warn me to get the hell out, in a box if I had to), or did he tell me to prepare me for what he knew was coming?
The worst part of writing this is I feel like I´m carbon-copying his behaviour.
I know I'll regret this, but I am going to bite.
