G'day to all my MO and ANZMO mates. I've been absent for a few months, as the old Black Dog, depression, came to visit. Nothing too serious, the b#$tard has paid a visit about 3 or 4 times in my nearly 50 years. These days I don't really see him sneaking up but recognise him pretty quickly once he's here.
Backed off the the things that feed him, like the world news, grog, sloth and gluttony.
More of the things that make the mongrel turn tail and run, like exercise, good food and sleep, some counselling and medication. All work like a glass of water on a parched plant.
So once again replenished, mostly, and wiser for it, hopefully.

It didn't stop me shooting....:biggrin:

Glad to see you back!
Yeah been there before. Sometimes we needed to cut that evil head OFF, and start over.

Glad you're doing better.....:tee:

Good man. Doing the things you love is always helpful. And you have plenty of nice firepower to help put a smile back on your dial. Pleased to hear you're on the comeback trail.

Best wishes, curan.

Glad to hear it mate and am also glad you sought help as that is the most important thing you can do.

I've gone through the same deal since my early twenties and when things start to slide out of control it gets hard, BUT, once you realise there is always light at the end of the tunnel it makes things that much easier to bear. Plus, us blokes need to talk about how we're feeling more instead of letting things build up, something I'm slowly getting better at!

Thanks all. I appreciate the responses. And I do think we as men can share this stuff and all be stronger for it. Now get back to the guns.....
