A Manhattan dietitian penned a suicide note on her personal web site before she apparently hanged herself in her West Village apartment, officials said Thursday.
Cops found Tara Condell, 27, dead, hanging from the closet door of her W. 10th St. apartment at about 5 p.m. Wednesday, police said.
In a note on her web site titled “I Hate the Word ‘Bye,’ But See You Later Maybe?” Condell said she was “plain old-fashioned tired of feeling tired.”
“I have written this note several times in my head for over a decade, and this one finally feels right. No edits, no overthinking,” she wrote.
She asked for no funeral or tributes, and ended the note with an apology, “I’m really sorry mama.”
Condell worked for Top Balance Nutrition, which has offices in New York and Miami.
“Tara was a talented dietitian loved by all of her patients and coworkers. But beyond that, she was a true friend who always extended her kindness to those around her,” Top Balance posted on its Facebook page Thursday.
Condell’s bio describes her as a registered dietitian and nutritionist specializing in general nutrition, weight management, gastrointestinal disease and geriatric health.
