Off topic - mental health

In another article earlier I happened to mention my other half has mental health issues and, when Rosso pointed out I'd never mentioned it much before, I realised that I probably haven't. No reason why really. Just never really cropped up.

In any case living with somebody who has these issues/worries isn't very easy but it is very important to reach out if you are experiencing issues yourself or if you are close to someone suffering.

With that in mind if anyone ever does want to bring up the subject I'm happy to share experiences/offer assistance. Either here or through another channel.

I know we share banter and give each other stick here at times but, we're all human, so if anyone needs help I'm always happy to help when I can.

But I don’t apologise for calling him out here and it’s a great opportunity to do so.



No it’s not Winston. This is a thread the op put up to help people, even if in a small way, it’s not for calling people out. And certainly not for epic Winston threads. Don’t dilute his purpose. If you think GT is a nobb, then call him out elsewhere. Leave this for the op’s purpose. Small things sometimes help people, and even a little gesture from the op, that’s seen some people come forward and state they didn’t feel so good, may be a decent step on a journey to getting proper help.

Start a thread about GT if you want, can’t see what good would come of it, and even whether any others will come forward on this, but don’t destroy the idea with bickering.

I’ve only called him out because he joined the thread to make fun of the subject to me. He knew what he was doing.

And I respectfully disagree, the thread can have multiple purposes and we should be open about how some people behave on this forum with respect to mental health.

As I said though, it’s a long time since one of those ‘epic’ threads you describe and I’ve no intention of this falling into that category. I’ve made my point and don’t think there’s any more to say.

Appreciate you disagree and that’s your prerogative.

It's hard when we get a troll or obsesessed poster.

We should be good.

But often are not.

Winston, this will be my last post on this for reasons I outlined earlier. . I haven’t fully read it but I didn’t see GT make fun of it. Could be wrong, and he has his faults, but without fully reading back I didn’t see anything that he said was making fun.

Feel free to prove me wrong, but I’d rather see this length bickering stopped in the i spirit of the thread.

In fairness, it was subtle so wouldn’t be obvious to anyone he hadn’t targeted with his mental health related insults in the past.

Take your point though and no intention to let it get out of control

He made a sarcastic comment in reply to Winston's but all there needed to be said was a couple of words to highlight it then leave it at that.

That way you can leave it for everyone else to see rather than involve yourself in it

Which to be fair, is pretty much what I did.

To be honest that little argument has made me feel better. An article of mine has never had so many comments as this one so all is good!

Howdy bro.

Watching us argue is funny, and talk as minds off serious stiff


Rangers and Celtic guys used to be good for a laugh years back.

This is leftfield and am on beer, but if yorcwife is a hippy trippy type, tonight is a meteor shooting star event, especially after midnight.

Get tunes on, Orbital Brian Cox and chill outside when darkness arrives soon.

It's made me smile today and gain perspective in our universe as a rowdy Rangers atom.
