So what has been going on with you for these last ten years?


Following some family trauma, I got a job that wasn't the best for me, and the whole situation made me sick, so I spent a couple of years recovering from that, realizing I've dealt with various levels of anxiety and depression pretty much my whole life because I didn't understand my own mind. In a way getting sick was the best thing that could have happened to me, since it forced me to deal with things I didn't realize was happening. Even though I consider myself healthy now, I know I have to work on keeping my mental health probably for the rest of my life, and also my mind will always be different, so it's a life long project - much like everyone probably has their own life long struggles.
Now I have a new job, new apartment, and I feel stronger and more myself than I've ever been in my life. Here's hoping it's not just a dream I will wake up from at any moment. :apt2:

Mental health is easily one of the top 5 types of health imo.

Yes, indeed. And it's sometimes less obvious you're having issues - it's not like your arm not suddenly working. lol

Scared is good, it usually means you know it's important. :p And thanks! <3

Hey, Gem. Welcome back!

Forums have been generally getting quieter as people grow up and do more adult stuff. The happy and groove threads are still around, obviously, but full of adult stuff.

Mafia ended up collapsing, but there were some epic moments there even after Game 100- maybe someday I'll even get around to cataloging them all in the Mafia mod thread!

There's still good discussions in off-topic forums on other lit, games, and other media. It's why a bunch of us stick around.

As someone mentioned, we have a few posting malazites that published their own fantasy books-both "Purge of Ashes" and "Incarnate" are worth a look, imho.

Aside from that, there's generally less craziness. Occasionally some of the old timers indulge in bouts of insanity where everyone changes their avatars/usernames to be completely unrecognizable, but mostly, it's just a familiar hangout spot for those of us still around.

We're old and boring farts hanging around the same pub we've always gone too. Sometimes youngsters come to visit and promptly turn around at the door, chased away by the smell of old whisky and shame.

Those noobs just need to git gud.

We are quite an awesome forum. We never have the drama I have seen on other forums. Though I do miss the days when we were a bit more active and the debates in DB were livelier and we just had more going on in the movies and lit sections

Wow, hey Gem! (And all the other oldies these convergences draw). Glad you're well :p.

I find it pretty amazing that after a decade people either remember their password or still use the same e-mail address. Meanwhile I can't log into accounts that I made three weeks ago.

Thanks, so people 'grew up' eh? Or maybe with age we lose the passionate certainty of youth. Good to hear people are successful, I'm not bitter at all. LOL

They will learn about shame eventually, and then maybe they'll find their way back here. :p

Hey! And thanks. I never understood why people would change their email address, unless they're hacked?

Yeah, I guess that would do it.

Btw, your avatar isn't loading, is that an edgy choice? :p
