Loosing LJ friends is not fun!  
Another friend has deleted today. I guess I really don't understand the appeal of deletion. I can understand not writing in LJ because you are depressed, but deletion is like virtual suicide. Maybe that's it - a desire to wipe yourself off of the face of LJ, if not the earth.

In any case, Jo, if you are reading, I hope you get to the bottom of yourself and can start to work your way up again! God bless you!

It is a shame really... I've never had anyone delete me as a Friend (yet) but then again I don't have that many LJ peeps who do list me as a friend.

It'd be nice if more did! :-)

No one deleted me, but she deleted her journal.

You want to be deleted?!

Ahh sorry, I didn't realise you meant deleted journal. I thought you meant deleted as friend.

Nooooo, I meant that I wished that I had more LJ friends!

Sarry! :-)

Ok, I was wondering...:-) I always say, you can't have too many friends! Now those with 1000 LJ friends, I do wonder about a bit. ;-)

I think your guess is close to correct, Gary. She must be hurting, & I feel bad for that.... will say a prayer this morning for her.
I just deleted my OTHER journal. It served no purpose. As you know-- I have deleted lovepink a couple of times, out of sheer self-torture... when I was feeling pretty down.
But I am an ADDICT of LJ, & can't imagine 'deleting'-- working for me... for very long.
My purpose of LJ has done a complete 180. It is no longer my diary, my journal of deep inside thoughts. It's now for you & all of my wonderful LJ friends. I let you know what's happening here & you let me know what's happening in your world. I am grateful & thankful that our paths have crossed.
I do hope Jo feels better soon.
Hope you get alot of sleep this weekend, too!

And I enjoy keeping up with you Mary Jo! I got an e-mail from Jo and she is a bit better, but will not be coming back to LJ, at least for now.

Sending sleepy {{hugs}} out to you!

Actually, it could very easily be just that somebody's priorities change enough to where LJ no longer plays an active enough role, or that the qualities they found appealing in it are better fulfilled by something else *shrug*. I've seen it happen. I've almost had it happen. And it does not necessarily have to do with depression (although I will grant you that usually when it doesn't they give some sort of heads up before deleting their journal).

This person left an entry yesterday about her depression and said she was going to delete today. She did. I was able to get an e-mail out to her, and she says she's a bit better today.

That is such a terrible shame
Gary, it saddens me deeply that Jo has decided to delete her Journal. I had missed her entry about being her being depressed and going to delete her LJ. In fact lately I am missing more entries than I am catching.

Next time you e-mail Jo tell her that I am praying for her. Also, if you don't mind give her my e-mail address and ask her to e-mail me. God is so awesome, He can and will restore her.

Re: That is such a terrible shame
I sure will Audis. I told her just about the same yesterday.
