WHERE IS EVERYONE???
« on: July 28, 2021, 11:37:36 pm »
Wow!  When I joined this forum back in 2007, there were a lot of regular posters here!

I'm going to assume that everyone (including me) just kept moving forward with their life...

Okay....so since this forum appears to be dead, I guess I will use it as a diary to myself!  I might as well, since the site is up and running (and costing someone some money).

While doing chores, trying to keep myself busy, I started thinking about the future ahead of me.

I don't think that I change.  Maybe that's the problem!  Am I supposed to change?  What if I'm happy where I am in life, and content to coast thru to my death?  What if I don't like / want new things (although I do like some new things)?  I still like 80s music, with a good dose of 70s music, and a dash of 90s music.  Am I supposed to give today's music a chance?  Why do I have to?  The music I listened in my youth is intertwined with memories.  What does today's music have to offer me.  Well, enough of this already.

Love yourself!

Rich

Hi, Rich....Sorry to hear about your troubles.

I'm still around.  I last posted a few weeks ago.

Thanks Peter!  I thought I was the only member left alive!  I was about to start writing my posts in the nude, since I figured there was no one here to report me.  It's a good thing I didn't!!  :-)

I'm here! I thought the same thing  :-\

I think what happens is when people start to feel better, they don't need to be on here anymore. But, because of mental illness, when they don't feel good, it's hard to either remember this is here or have no energy to be utilizing this service. I know for myself when I first found this site/forum I was in a shitty place looking for answers, to talk to anyone who would listen. Then when I had a blip in the radar where I was feeling better, I didn't think about this site.

I'm cycling through again though so will likely be reading what's going on with others to try and gain insight on some solutions to help myself.

Btw, I laughed when I read your comment about chatting on here naked because no one is around. Too funny!

Hi, E.....That was the virtual meeting, just out of curiosity?  I'm not interested in attending, as I'm not bipolar.

When I was in Laughing like Crazy, virtually everyone in it was bipolar.

MDAO should announce on the front page that the online support group is open again.

Hi P, yes I've been in a few virtual meetings - one session in General Depression and Anxiety and a few in the BiPolar. That's really my only option as there are no in-person meetings available anywhere near where I live. I'm not sure how I feel about them yet...
