Found it! Catherine 'Kitty' Genovese, murdered March 13, 1964, Queens NY

Also a made for TV movie

And here's a page address for an article I found on it:

http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpag...pagewanted=all

And the decrease in offers of assistance that occurs as the number of bystanders increases that I talked about? It's called the 'bystander effect'

:-) thanks for asking, I love this kind of stuff. Yes, I know, I'm a nerd but psych IS what my degree is in :-D

oh yeah, that poor girl. 38 witnesses or something wasn't it? i remember our lecturer talking about her. it's so awful!

my report is on the influence of group membership on elevatinos and attributions. not as interesting as the bystander effect cos it just seems to obvious to me - of course people are going to make internal attributions to succes and external ones to failure. everyone does!

Hi all. Sorry that I haven't been around. I'm checking back in, but would really like to be checking out of life altogether. I gave in and cut .... thankfully nowhere that anyone will see but I shouldn't have. I'm not sleeping more than 2 hours a night and the positive effects that I've had from my ECT treatments just aren't with me at the moment. I don't know that there is a point to continuing living. I was doing so well, but now I've fallen back and there is no way out ... except the final one. I'm sorry, I shouldn't be bringing this up with you all. I'm just going to go and hide under the bed so that I'm safe to cry.

Haven't seen Jo in here for a while, does anyone know what's happened to her?

*Hugs Kahlia* How are you doing at the moment hun?

I had to learn about bystander behaviour in A level Psychology, it was very interesting.

Going to a party tonight, kinda looking forward to it. Not sure how well I'll do around loads of people, but I can't sit at home and mope all the time.

Kahlia1981 09-08-2008 01:23 PM

Hi. I'm struggling through. All panicky and asthmatic. Every time I hear a vehicle I start thinking that someone's rung the paramedics on me. Really freaking out. Thanks heaps for the hugs zowie.

blondiebear 09-08-2008 02:35 PM

I'm scared as anything. I am absolutely going to be freaking out until we hear from Mors Certa. And it may be days!

If the brisk walk had been SI, i would have added some cutting to it. Blondie's favorite word; "needy."

I'm emotionally hung over. Now that the crisis is over, i'm wiped out. My body is shaking from that and from that walk yesterday. For pity's sake, i used to be able to do that walk almost w/o thinking about it. But then I didn't used to do it in the heat of day.

*sits outside frantically stitching at current hand work project, waiting for Mors Certa*

Casper_Fading 09-08-2008 02:53 PM

blondiebear 09-08-2008 03:02 PM

He will be watched over, yes. I still am so scared for him though. It is still early-ish for where he is and he might be put on a 72 hour hold too. Hopefully I will calm down. A little.

I expect that i'm going to be doing a fair bit of walking in the next few days, to work off some of this nervous energy.

I'm also going to need you all to help me too. Please?

*resumes seat outside the door to watch*

**** ****. Screwed up totaly. Friend (the one i thought i would be able to (and have in the past) tell anything) was texting me at work. I was giving short answers back (being at work) then he asked "whats up? grumpy" so i truthly replyed "at work. Down, ****. Soz you prbly didnt want to hear that" i get one back saying "stop wallowing in self pity or you nt be happy.
I know this! I dont know how to get out of feeling like ****,. This has hit me hard, i am hoping its paranoia but know its the truth that he hates me and so do the others. I have to drive him and 2 others to a bbq tonight...have to put on a normal happy act ****.
Sorry sorry stupid rant taking space.

Blondie I am hear for you...can you be here for me to?

blondiebear 09-08-2008 03:11 PM

*cuddles Marc*

My husband's company picnic is today. I'm going to have to work hard to be very pleasant today.

1ofmany 09-08-2008 03:16 PM

I dont know how i should be acting when i drive him and the others. I dunno if he knows how he made me feel. I was gearing myself up to talk to him on monday but now i just feel like i want to cry.

*holds blondie tight*

horizon_surfer 09-08-2008 04:34 PM

so an update.. ive cut multiple times in the last couple of days, yelled and fallen out with all 5 of my remaining friends (who only exist online) and got more or less thoroughly patronised and rejected by my therapist. i dont see any point in trying anymore, i dont know what happiness is and no-one else gives a damn about me so why should i? from now on i'm just gonna see where each day ends me up at. i probs wont be around for a while, not that anyone noticed me anyway. take care if you feel like it.

BoundNoMore 09-08-2008 04:39 PM
