    Your an amazing man Avo mate , it takes guts for a bloke to ask that question because most men would rather keep thoughts and feelings to themselves when in reality just that simple act of talking can be like a pressure relief valve .

    For once in my life I think I can identify with those people suffering from depression. I've always been a very strong person and tended to deal with things myself, while keeping it all bottled up. Thankfully it's never been related to money or health situations, usually personal relationships within the family or good friends. I've also found that as I've gotten older I've become more emotional. A current issue with a young family member's relationship ending has effected me greatly. I see it as a wasted chance for a great future together, thrown away by choices forced on them by inept & morally wrong family law court decisions, in relation to child custody from a previous relationship. It's a long and heartbreaking story, but it's caused the breakup of a young family by one of them choosing to relocate to be close to the child.
    I'm finding it very difficult to deal with at the moment while trying to support both of them. I'm only managing to get about 3-4 hours sleep a night these days and it wears you down. I love and care for both of them and it breaks me up watching it happen. I've tried to convince the one leaving that they need to look at their long term future as a family together, and what benefits that brings, but I do understand the overwhelming emotional need to be close to the child.

    Thanks for listening guys, it has helped some by getting this off my chest.

    I decided a few years ago that worrying about things I couldn't change in my life was eating me from the inside so now I concentrate on the things I can do and can change .

    @Evo Ihad a similar problem since 91' I was lucky enough to pay the house off then
    but aside from that Im now on a DSP and still seeing surgeons, only yesterday had 2
    MRIs one a load bearing and the other similar to a CAT scan. avoid surgery at all costs
    What level is your problem? they have great gizmos to replace discs these days so you
    dont walk hunched over like I do, well I start off straight but by the end of the day Im hunched over.
    Workcover and TAC there is no charge for the MRI .I had mine at Epping nth of Melb.

    The house is a big weight on my mind...

    As for scans and surgery, unfortunately not work related, etc, so any extra stuff besides xrays/ultrasound is at my own cost...
    Hoping to see one of these load bearing MRI machines available over here (if not already).
    Hope you relax by the river soon then lol
    Cheers,

    Evo

    Gday Evo,

    Great to meet ya on the weekend mate...It was a pleasure.
    As for the dark...
    I wish I could say it gets easier but it just doesn't...
    I wish I could just serve you a cup of strength and luck but I have used all mine up.
    at best I can be an ear for your story or a shoulder to lean on when your all outa punch.

    For me...

    I was told to give up all that I love due to knee and back conditions and injuries mixed with arthritis and ongoing degenerative cartilage issues.
    I hate being told what to do...
    I reached out to people that have had to swim these waters before and I filled my mind with good stories and positive outcomes.
    I know it takes more than a story or a laugh to pull yourself out of the mud but it is a possibility as long as your heart beats and your sights are true.

    I got hold of a power tower and had to burn kilos and get my core strength up and weight down.
    It took months of sore muscles and doubt to get any results. I was told to never stop moving only relax at night in bed.
    I now continue to manage my body but I do slip up and end up a bit further back than expected but hey' We aint flat roaders...we know there is no up without getting down...
    I have 2 young boys and a home to keep over their heads so there is no room for failure in my eyes, even though I do fail all the time.
    Having people who love you is a rare gift and not something you want to give up on.

    I have bad days and good days...I cherish the 1 or 2 percent of the time that life goes right for me. I also know that if I had have given up on things when my chips were down I would never have met any of the great people like yourself that I know today.
    This is our only chance to be the best we can be. People like us get no free rides...We have to fight to hold ground and push forward but be sure this is something you can be proud of. It will make you stronger. You have to find a way to make it work.

    I wish you strength, courage and determination on your journey. Only you can make it happen.
    We are not the same but be sure not to deceive yourself... trust only your positive thoughts.

    Hope to catch up again on the trails soon.

    We're all here coz we ain't all there...

    You guys are tough sons of a bitches.
    Yes you guys struggle with depression. Yes you feel pain, emptiness, Weird feelings etc.
    But still you guys are here standing tall . Fighting everyday.

    I dont suffer depression but I suffer from anxiety. I avoid people at work that I have bad experiences with or I perceive them as bullies.
    I worry about the future and money all the time.

    I undo that banjo bolt to check the guaze filter but I will keep going out checking if I dont it up properly or did I strip the thread etc.

    Just sometimes can let things go.

    Then it spirals and then I feel down or panick.

    I go through great periods and then sometimes it compounds.

    This has been my life. Definately a by product of my mild Tourettes Syndrome.

    Besides that my life is good. Beautiful Family. 4 amazing kids.

    Love my Nissan Patrol.

    Good thing with age I have atleast accepted who I am and learnt that its a condition and not because Im weak or a coward that I worry about those people or situations.

    I do wish all you guys the best.

    We dont need to be those "Tough Aussie blokes"

    We just need to be there for our friends and family.

    lol Not that kind of tourettes, Thats the hollywood bullshit.

    More of tics. eye twitch. clearing throat. Cranky neck.

    Mild but when it comes. Its still very uncomfortable.

    Moreso the byproducts are the anxiety and panick attacks..

    woo wee.

    Going through some really depressing stuff at the moment dealing with 15 different companies chasing me for money from stuff that happened a long time ago and it’s putting a huge strain on my work and family and personal life. Works been a shitfest with nothing going my way and my health has been getting worse. My back is on its way out and the arthritis in my hips and knees is the worst it’s ever been and the worst part is my last mole check up with the doc ended with probably the worst news I’ve ever got. My misses recently started a full time job and she is more stressed than ever as well. Let alone the fact my patrol broke down so I’m without a car for the time being. Sorry for the rant. Needed to get some stuff of my chest
    Cheers
