We were all under severe pressure, but everyone absorbs that pressure in a different way.
 
Looking back it at, the engineer who took his life didn't seem to show the stress everyone else was obviously carrying around. I now know that that's a warning sign - when someone internalises severe stress, it can build up to a point where they can't contain it anymore, and something has to give.
 
In that position I know I'll end up crying, screaming (usually back at whoever is dumping on me) or taking it out on some inanimate object (TV remotes do make a satisfying cracking noise when you hurl them at a wall....). He did none of that - just kept taking it until he popped. Frown | :(
