WordPress member death by suicide

Apologies for being a bearer of bad news (again), I received a message today from a relative about a WordPress member in our community.

I’m devastated as I am sure some of his family are. I received a horrific comment 2 years ago and decided to read it out loud to show people how the way we communicate has a huge impact on people.

Paul Mc Aleavy aka Palfitness passed away yesterday.

Paul went through a lot of crap and he found a sense of acceptance in the blogging community.

He was always generous with his time reading and sharing blogs.

Paul, you will be missed.

Please pay your respects.

He loved Daphne- his dog. I think that was what kept him going. His sister in law took Daphne away from him. We all go through ups and downs in life.

Don’t be so quick to judge or at least check your initial thoughts and judgements




“Fitness” is the root to success in any career!!

Paul came up with this award. Remember life is short and be awesome!

    • I spoke with him a bit about his issues and a family member. I think it may be his sister just dropped it in a comment on a random post. He over dosed. It’s so tragic! She has emailed me about the details. I don’t know what to say 😣

      • No!!!…. So tragic , truly sad. I wouldnΒ΄t have expected him to pass away yet, not at all (I had no idea!)…. Yes: He also mentioned to me the issues you made reference to…. To be honest, I feel speechless. Very frustrating!. Thank you for being so kind and careful with this! ❀
