Hi guys,

I'm not sure if anyone rembers me.

As a lifelong sufferer from Bipolar Disorder I'm prone to drastic mood changes

and I have not managed to stay in a forum for any length of time.

I underwent hip-disarticulation of my right leg in 1989.

Regards,

Mike

G'day,

awfully nice of you to reply.

I've just left the AbeBooksForum.

It seems I have never lasted longer than in this forum and chances are that I might

be here to stay.

I met a couple of nice people on that forum, too, and hope to keep up a correspondence

with two of them.

Nothing dramatic has happened since I left the forum.

My new medication seems to have the positive effect that I no longer get jealous or envious

of the more popular posters.

So I hope to display more stamina this time!

I hope everything's ok with you, too.

Haven't made it to Australia yet.

Hope to stay in touch.

Love,

Mike RHD

Dear Higgy & Shane,

thanks for your welcome.

Forum's seems to have quietened down a bit since I left it last August (?).

I stayed abstinent for a while until I joined the AbeBookForum in February.

An unfortunate development - harmless banter with a bored librarian in Louisiana led to her being

dressed down by her husband and being forbidden to exchange further posts with me.

So much for a happy marriage where a mother of two grown-up boys is ordered around by

her loving husband like a little girl.

I was so upset by this turn of affairs that I proceeded to delete all of my 659 posts to that forum.

I can be that uncompromising and unforgiving.

Some piece of work, I can assure, but it helped to vent my anger and disappointment.

Anyway better than grabbing a pump-gun and shooting innocent people.

With my recurring depressions I get these compulsive negative thoughts like: I'm always the odd

man out, I'm a social failure, I have no friends etc. I also get jealous and envious of posters who

seem to rule the roost and are perceived by me as being more poular than myself.

That's when I usually quit a forum.

But my new medication has so far prevented these fits of envy and jealousy.

I hope to stay for good.

Love,

Mike

Mike, I've noticed that the forum is a bit slower than it was before I left... I think discussion forums ebb and flow. With spring/summer upon us, more people are outside doing stuff.

However, keep writing and adding to the posts, it eventually picks right up!

Glad you are back (even though I welcomed you on another thread -- my own I think!)!

:D

Hi

Yes me too I would post nearly every day once.

Then more members came on here and gave me a rest at the beginning we needed all the post's we could get just to keep the forum going that was a few years ago

I was in the first 30 then it was hard work thinking what to say to each other with out boring ourselves but as the years went on new members came and some very good posting's that gave me and other old members a rest.

I now come on here to read post's now not posting myself the information given theses days on here is excellent keep posting I am still watching.

Also I would like to welcome back some of the member's that have not posted for a long time Hi Ally & Mike.

Kind regards Pat.

Hi folks,

Sorry!

I have been off-line for the past 8 days.

Had to take sick leave suffering from a case of shingles or Herpes Zoster.

Never knew that it could affect the head and face!

The strong medication left me sleepy and groggy and I've still got large red patches on my forehead

with the last piece of scab likely to come off any time soon.

Take care!

God Bless!

Mike
