Hopefully less of a jerk these days

Post by ElfDude » Sun Jul 12, 2015 10:23 pm

I always felt bad when I really went off on rages in forums like this years ago. Especially at certain people. And I went off plenty of times. Lots of old posts from me in here that I wish didn't exist.

So, just an FYI... about five years ago I was diagnosed with PTSD. Really caught me by surprise. No need to go into what the trauma was or anything like that. But, suffice to say that people near me, even people I love, really got the bad side of me from time to time. Some stuff would just set me off. I embraced the treatment/therapy and am so grateful for the benefits that came from it.

I'm still a fairly emotional guy, and probably still a jerk, but hopefully a whole lot less of a freak-show than I used to be. People still make me sad and/or angry from time to time of course but I process it differently now, and react differently. And I seem to just love people in general a whole lot more than I knew how to in the past.

Anyway, to everyone who still reads stuff in here and had to put up with me back then, my sincere apologies.
Aren't you the guy who hit me in the eye?

I always think of you as more of a diplomatic contributor myself.

No problems here, Elf. We all are fighting some kind of battle.

Fight the good fight, Bro.


Digressing, it looks like Facebook KO'd this forum. Nothing but bots
posting here lately. It's sad.

How people can camp out on FB, post every move in their daily lives and
put up with complete strangers sending "friend" requests all day is whack.

I think we all had our days Elf. Looking back over the years I never saw you as a jerk though. We have had quite a few jerks on here over the years but IMHO, I never thought you were.
Happy 2015!

Hey, we still pop in every so often.

Never a jerk to me Elf. I get it though.

I have to agree with my fellow By-torians. You are human but not a jerk. Besides, you took my kid in, let her pet your kittehs, jammed with her in front of an audience, and fed her za. 8)
Onward and Upward!
