PostSubject: An explanation. Of sorts...   Tue Sep 11, 2012 3:53 pm

Hi guys,
Some of you will remember me and some have no idea who I am so this won't really matter to you. I used to post quite regularly and suddenly quit (twice) deleting my posts. I won't go into detail, but the reason I have done this is because I am bipolar and suffer from depression. I have high highs and really low lows. When I left was one of my lowest points. I felt worthless and that anything I could contribute to life and this board was nothing. I read my comments and thought they were all garbage so I deleted them.

So all of you who thought I must be crazy were probably right. lol

I'm doing ok now. I don't think I am coming back though, I don't want you all to have to put up with my moods. I just wanted you to know what happened.

Those of you who pray, I would appreciate your prayers. I think I have this beat now. I hope.

Thanks

Jack

I also was not around for the original posts, but just the same welcome back to BoB brother. I hope to see you around for quite a while and look forward to reading your posts. A brother here is family, and at BoB we are all family through thick and thin.

I, on the other hand, know of and remember you, Simple Man. Your presence is always welcome (I think you're a-okay in my book) and if you have to take a break, no problems. I ain't bipolar but I have some flavor of ASD that I'm exploring further in information and realization. Life is tough enough as it is, just to add other complications just sucks. I empathize (which is good news from my world). Laughing

All that means is the nuts run this asylum, and that's why it's a great place to be. As PB said, welcome home. Cool

(...and don't feel you have to apologize or explain anything...you never treated me or anyone else ill-mannered...and if you did, or feel you did, we forgive you...life's to effing short... Smile )

If everyone who was at least slightly crazy didn't come here, there would be no here to come to! The moderators are all certifiable, I believe it's a required part of the background check. I spent my entire childhood listening to adults whisper "That boy ain't right" about me, so from one off-center brother to another, welcome back friend Smile

Hey Simpleman! I'm a newer Brother but I know it's good to have you here. I hope to see you post often!
I don't contribute much here, I just soak in all the knowledge these old farts have to offer, Also I enjoy laughing!
This place has become a second home to me.

...okay look... I've given you fish, now I teach you to fish for yourself, and you'll have a lifetime of group hug emoticons...

Here's the link: http://www.millan.net/minimations/smileys/grouphugg.gif

Copy and past that whole thing into the text box you get for posting a picture.
