Heya fellow forumians,
 
So I got beat up tonight by 7 gutless guys, have 3 bumps on back of my head and as I type half my face covered in blood. Hands, elbows and legs grazed from the road, I managed to escape by jumping 5 fences in my local area. They couldn't keep up and I spent an hour in the shed of some guys house whilst patting his dog and talking on the phone to the police. My Iphone is broken and has multiple cracks through the screen, however it still works thankfully so will cost alittle bit to repair.
I need to call the police on Sunday because he wants to see how I am, I went to hospital and got sick of waiting and signed out and went home and now here I am.
 
Feeling really tired as I didn't get much sleep last night and my hands are killing me most of all, however I think I'm doing ok atleast I hope so.
 
Still feeling good, as pain doesn't let me down that much. Keep soldiering on guys and gals and hope all goes well for everyone at this time.
 
Thanks for reading :)

Wow, I am so sorry to hear this. I am glad that you called the police. Sorry you couldn't continue waiting at the hospital. I hope that you don't need stitches.

Try to relax. Make sure that you call them back on Sunday. Thanks for checking in. So sorry that this happened to you Crackles.

Thanks Karen, lived here for 19 years and it's a first and hopefully the last. Happened really fast but what can ya do, prefer fast then slow hehe. Anyway they won't break my spirit, just annoying how it takes 7 people to take down 1 person with arthritic condition haha.
More annoyed about my Iphone to be totally honest, the police were absolutely fantastic about it. They have chipped my front tooth and also swollen nose. I guess they managed to get more hits in that I had felt lol, oh well thats a good thing.

Hopefully be healed up fast, doesn't look good at interviews all beat up lol.

All good, I can handle it...thats just the world we live in and everyone goes through something rediculasly bizarre once in their life. Just surprised they needed all 7 of them and all I said was "hey guys, hows it going?" whilst working home from the pub.

Wont go out for alittle while till I heal back up, I'm not scared but I do fear that Australia is just becoming worse or is it just the upcoming generation?

Thanks for the support, <3 Crackles

It is like that in many areas of the US too. I am glad that you didn't let them break your spirit. And hopefully no it wont happen again. It is too bad. As it is said, something like be it a wicked generation, do not despise your youth. I heard that somewhere. I think my mom talking about me. lol... People were a little more mellow in my generation. The 70's. But I am sure that they had gangs then too. I hope you heal up fast. Sorry about your tooth. Can you get it fixed? Or can you fix somethintg like that?

Take care

Hugs, Karen

Good morning guys, had a sleep and I can feel the pain mostly in my hands lol. My head seems ok, so I'm quite happy about that. Unfortunately they didn't have a reason to attack me, all I remember that they were on otherside of road and I said "Hey guys, hows it going?" as they come bolting across to my side. They asked for no money and well lol, I had 10 dollars and left the scene with 10 dollars, so I don't understand their motives however I think they might have been non-Australian, not being racist sorry if that sounds bad but maybe they just don't like Australian's.
Either way, these things happen in a life time and I'd prefer have cuts and bruises and chipped teeth over organ damage, so I kind of just feel really thankful that it wasn't worse.
Funny thing was, there was 4 police cars after I called, probably because there was 7 of them I would guess. They kept me calm and I quite enjoyed sitting there patting that cute dog in that guys backyard, I have a feeling the owner knew what the go was so he didn't come out and glad he didn't.
I may even write a nice thank you letter and an apologie for jumping his fence and just explain what all the noise was last night as I know people all around that area.
Anyway, I'm ok it's my hands that hurt and my Iphone :( but thats ok contract is over feb next year so I can get new one shortly.
Thanks for the posts guys and hope your all feeling pain free today.

Crackles, I love your spirit, and I am so pleased this hasn't caused you on-going fears, they breed you Aussies tough these days aye Jamie, lol

I am sorry you even had to experience such a pointless and callous thing, you didn't deserve that, and I am pleased that dog was in the shed to offer you immediate comfort and healing emotionally.

Heya guys :)

I'm feeling fairly well thank you Stillme, I was feeling deeply upset and depressed today for reasons I don't want to mention. It sometimes hurts to the stage I feel like my stomach is being pulled down to my lower intestines, does this sound sane to you guys?
I noticed in another thread that alot of fuss has been made about me and had to come back to set things straight.

SueTho!!!!!!!! Even though we may not see eye to eye doesn't mean I don't like you, you have supplied some really intelligent support and wish that I had maybe shut my trap to just keep the peace...but I guess we are both guilty of that. The other day I was quite upset and ready to cancel my sub, but that would be very selfish of me and decided that there are people still needing support before I did such a thing.

Before you write back with some analysis, I would just like you to just acknowledge my truce and not try and lash out wish fancy words, if that's cool. I understand your a strong and a very intelligent person, but this is my plea to just end all this jibba jabba once and for all. I considered alot of your replies as very condescending, however I am willing to wipe that off as me just being too sensitive if you would just keep it cool on your next reply :)

I'm not a bad person and I don't like coming across like that and I'm not the "typical" male that most people would stereotype, as I don't know you and you don't me I would like to start fresh from this point and just try be friends or even forum buddies.

I know this may be unexpected after all the "crapola" that has been going on, if you could just chill for abit and feel that I'm really trying to make an effort for what is right for the depression forums, you and everyone else that has to listen to us.

Truly sorry if I had ever offended you in previous posts, but lets just move on and start helping people again :)

I take the blame for anything and everything, just to get past this silly trivial situation.

I also noticed that you don't believe that I had been beaten up or that's the impression I got, however just to rest your mind to regain your trust I'm quite happy to send you pictures of my injuries. I assure you that I'm not a liar and not a manipulator and just want to keep the peace, I like to help people probably the same reason you do....because it makes me feel good about myself that I have helped someone else in need.

I'm sure your a good person SueTho and I have no doubts about it and would very much like to comunicate with you on a normal level and even work aside you in supporting people in need, as I may learn quite afew values that may help me or someone else later in life.

Just to rectify why I don't list my depression is because I'm very up and down like a rollercoaster which makes it hard for me to seek help, sometimes I'm "over it" and sometimes "im ok", just like anyone else and have yet to seek help as I feel that I want to be strong enough to battle it myself and helping others really does seem to make me feel alot better, even though I may come across wrong in some circumstances.

We are only human and no one is perfect, no matter what sex we are, we still have the same color blood and this applies to race also. I get along with any race or religious person, I don't outcast anyone for their believes nor their background.

SueTho your very intelligent and I know you will respond with an educated response, just hope nothing has offended you as I have tried my best and used my heart to write both of these posts.

Also, earlier Karen mentioned us being in top 10 and I also think that's an important thing to mention. I mean yeah ok we aren't in competition, but I'm sure we would prefer people coming to us for support with the amazing educated people we have and that most defenitely includes you SueTho. I feel your an asset to this website and hope I really come across right here because I had a think today and read alot of the stuff you write and found it's amazingly helpful.
I believe Karen was just stating the achievements that we all have from the amazing support that we have support supplied, even my .2% that I have contributed haha.
I think it's a good incentive to keep up the good work, not for the competition, but for the people that really need the support that we have to offer.
I want things back to normal and really feel that friendships are going to be made and this may only strengthen what we special thing we have here (I hope).

Yeah I know, I just can't stop writing at the moment as I have so many good things to say right now.

Just keep up the good work guys, you are truly amazing people that need no recognition for your support and this goes for everyone that supports and supplies their imput and I thank you for that.
