Today has not been going to plan. I have gone from being annoyed to tranquil fury. I really really need to hurt something.  Angry

Oh nos. What's wrong?

If it helps, I like to scream into and punch pillows when I'm angry ^_^

It was a conga line of wrongness. Started by trying to find an office in an industrial estate, failing miserably, then being unable to contact the guy I was supposed to meet. Finding out that the e-mail I had sent him Thursday had apparently failed to deliver (but my apparently today was the most appropriate time to tell me) then any subsequent attempts at contact failed. It was just a really really bad day.

I've been a member of OXM for 6 years and during that time I've clocked up more posts than anyone else, stopping just short of 12,000.  I've enjoyed every minute of it, even fighting on the front lines of the console war after the One and PS4 launched.  I've had good times and bad and made a lot of friends (and at least one best enemy) over the years.

However for the last nine months or so I've been starting to slip into depression.  As part of this I've been retreating more and more to an online world I had control over and it's become an addiction.  I'm spending more and more of my daily life on the OXM and PTC forums rather than face my problems and like any addiction it's started to adversely effect my life.  For the good of my mental health I need to quit.  Unfortunately like an alcoholic who can no longer go to the pub that means saying good bye to my friends.

Im glad to see so many people on the new site.  It deserves to be a success and the PTC team have a lot of passion to make it great.  I would love to come back in a year or two and see a thriving site and I hope anyone that gets chosen as either moderator or new writer helps to make it a reality.

Thank you for your support and your friendship, it's meant a lot to me

Genuinely sorry to read that Cunning. I didn't always comment but of all the people that posted on OXM and here yours were usually the responses most reasonable and thought through, especially as a moderator - the best of them particularly on OXM. Take a break pal and I hope to see you around in the future.

Somehow or other, I managed to miss all the stuff about Cunning leaving. So sad to see him go. Good luck to you and hope you get better, your levels of level headedness and fairness will be hard to match. Stay off the drugs, I had a bigger problem coming off the drugs than I ever had with the depression!

On another note, today a great big cloud got lifted from our lives! My wife has been having tests for cancer of the uterus (one of the bad ones). Today she got the all clear.

That's fab news, so happy to hear she's doing well Smile

I was actually the opposite, when I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression the drugs were my saviour. They genuinely helped me so much, within 8 months I was ready to come off them, and despite a few dips since, I've not had to go back on them either. I understand why they don't suit everyone, though.

The one that I was on sent electric shocks (or what felt like it) across my brain whenever I tried to reduce the dose. The drug had originally been designed to get the circuits firing again and I wound up crushing the tablets, making lines with them and slowly reducing the amount snorted through a straw ??? It was like some weird coke freak in my kitchen, it was the worst six months of my life, my cardiologist trying to get me off them as they were buggering up my heart and me trying. Sheer bloody hell that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. Ok now (more or less).

Wow, that does sound bad. Not surprised you're against them considering the circumstances!

It was a bad time. Drugs aren't the right choice for everyone but unfortunately they are the treatment of choice. Unfortunately, for an unlucky few, they only find out too late that the drugs have become the problem. I'm not saying they didn't help because they did (for my mind) but had a detrimental effect on my physical health. Speaking to others who had the same issues as myself, they reckoned that heroin was easier to get off of. My heart rate fell to 25 (they class 19 as near terminal I believe). It was nearly a year after I came off them before my heart rate returned to a reasonable level (The muscle got damaged though and I had a heart attack not too long after). God I wish I was still diving then, I'd have been able to stay down for hours!

Apparently neither drugs nor alcohol worked for my mum, although the booze did take the edge off of her arthritis. Though I probably wouldn't recommend it as course of pain relief.
