Well, I have frequently lurked here, and occasionally had a few things to say from time to time. There is one thing that I truly admire about the folks who post here - the courage they have to open up about something that is frequently misunderstood, or that people are plain ignorant of. This, coupled with the generous support of others, makes this one of the few non game threads that I have bookmarked and read whenever something new is posted.
Lately, things have been getting more challenging for me to deal with on all fronts, and I have been slowly worn down by it all. I even managed to delude myself quite a bit as to how bad I was until recently the facade shattered. Well, on July 9, I am going into a mental health care hospital for a few weeks to help me get my mind sorted out, and to come back in a better mindset. I admit to be annoyed with myself over my inability to handle life's challenges better than I am right now, but I do have the means of doing something about it.
So, I shall finish off my ramble by thanking everyone who has posted in this blog for the courage you have to take that first step, and to everyone who has offered their support, empathy and reassurance. Most of all, a big thank you to Rhedyn for starting this thread, and giving people a venue to air their thoughts and feelings.
I'll pop back here again when I am released and let you know how things went.
