This was a shitty thing to put here. Yes I am struggling with my demons and yes this has been a consideration.

I'm sorry to have voiced this here, it is entirely not appropriate.

Sorry to all, and thank you to those whom sent me a PM.



For those who know, I have taken leave of the Fire Service, and have been utilising the FireCare services available to me and am wholeheartedly attacking this.

I owe my kids a father.

Barbed, fight that black dog fucker hard man, it is an insidious fucking illness that all to often takes people from us that have a great life ahead and who are loved by many. Fight it and kick it in the head.

Seek all the help you need, official help, mates, strangers and anything in between but know that the Powerslide family is here and has your back big time.

Great decision.

I'm so glad to hear you made this decision. I know it's extremely difficult to seek assistance for mental health because it's harder to see something that isn't physical if that makes any sort of sense. Plus there are the associated stigmas that come with various mental illnesses. I find that most of all to be the most bothersome aspect of mental illness; the labeling and total writing off of people who suffer from any type of illness. I'm guilty of doing it myself, but I will say I've recently had to change my own perspective on it due to having to look in the mirror and being given a diagnosis I tried to avoid for more than half of my life.

Maxime Berger should be a reminder to us all that the human mind is a beautiful thing, but also it can be incredibly fragile at the same time depending on what the circumstances in play are, or even if there is something physically wrong with the brain itself. I personally fall into the latter category.

Cutting all the bullshit aside, I know I can be an absolute lunatic on here and I do my best to try and keep it in check, but am not always successful in it. If any other posters have gone through what #22 has or what Barbedwire is currently going through, follow their example and seek help. It will make you a better person in the long run. Life can be enjoyable and does not need to be a daily struggle. Something I did not personally realize, and wished I had realized far sooner. But everyone has to learn things in their own time depending on the situation. I can only offer advice based on my given situation, and will say at least in America anyway, mental healthcare can be treated as an absolute fucking joke sadly. Wish it was far better...maybe it will get there one day, but people do need to speak up. I don't like to share personal information about myself, but after reading Barbedwire's posts, I figure if this post even makes a difference for one person then it will have been worth it. If you are even having the slightest bit of difficulty, go to a mental healthcare provider. There's nothing to be ashamed of at all.

Im noone to give advice, but I'm encouraged to see that your willing to openly speak to professionals who can help. Your are absolutely correct about being a Dad to your kids. There is nothing more important in your life. Growing up without a parent wrecks kids. Parents wreck kids too but the damage of not having that loving, guiding presence, especially with a stigma of suicide, will warp their development and forever scar them.
When I had a kid,I looked at it as my job to do everything possible to keep my her off the pole. If I had a boy it would be to keep him from being a Stoner fan
I'm glad you posted what your going through. I'll say the same to JPS. That takes balls and I applaud that.
At one point in time, this forum was place where people did just that and it was a much better place for it. Unfortunately personal information became weaponized by a few that took it too seriously and a lot of people, including me are now hesitant to post anything personal.
By you, JP and Ant G posting about real life, I hope it convinces others and eventually myself that its ok to divulge personal stories. I'd like to think that we can all rise above petty divisions when it comes to real life.
Maybe after all this we can get Jum to post a picture of the Bird from PS he was recently shagging
