YES I know this is the a/p forum and yes I am not putting down a/p depression stress or anything to do with any illness or disorder we all have
Please do not look at me right now as a moderator ( I am just like you only volunteer)
I use to jump outta bed to get on here and read the posts yes there were questions answered and all that BUT we also had a " family " atmosphere happening here and we also made upp some threads to make ppls days a lil easier ....
For instance ....the Happy THread has gone on forever and could not keep up with it but lately it is back on pages in way way back
There were / are many good threads to jump in on and they dont always have to be NEGATIVE.....
I feel we have had a change in the air here and I dont think I am the only one ......members alike..........
I come here now same retoric I ask to look for existing threads no one does .okay thats cool I AM NOT your boss and trying not to be believe me..YOU ( I ) have a/p IT doesnt have you nor me I refuse to let it win all the time a small step makes a big difference IMHO
I have followed Porridge .....And Shortstops journeys thru this and there fight to better selves with ir w/o meds .......they have done it with Baby steps
Megs HAS QUIT drinking ......Kudos .......
Vic has gone and got a new job and is making the fight daily BUT fighting non the less
Shy is doing lots better
Lil One is at least trying ....all you can do ........TRY ...Have Faith in whatever YOU believe in I do and I get thru it all I dont bring half my crud to the boards I have to deal with it and I do

We cannot ( me included) stay standing still it wont help you one Dang bit ........
Laughter is a good wa to help the a/p even if you are laughing at self ya know
Self help tech's are mentioned over and over and yet are they being used?? For the most part yes I see some ppl use them
I am not trying to cause a big argument ................debate ......or whatever
NOT putting ANYONE down ...................NO ONE AT ALL!!!!!
I just hope that the feeling that has been missing for some while now does come back
I miss having myself get a chuckle in the am and YET I still answer the posts and so do all others ......I do take this illness very serious as I do the FIGHT to regain some semblance in your lives
I have made self more aware of techniques to help me out as well as I post and see if they will help anyone else .....as do others and I hope thy help
Please for you ole timers let get it back ........and from my heart the newbies too
We lost a lot here in a short time IMHO
I KNOW I am not the only one thinking and feeling this way
Will let them that wish to speak for self
Take care and PLEASE dont read anything that IS NOT there into my post please.......
God Bless and I hope you get what I am trying to say .......
