    Mental Health Thread 2

    Don't take this the wrong way Kitto, cos I mean it with the best intentions, but I'm going to be blunt Having a loved one who is struggling when you have no idea what is going on or why they are struggling is a BIGGER burden, than having a loved one who can to tell you their problemis but still respect that sometimes you'll need some space and therefore they're not expecting you to fix it. Seriously I think it's one of the biggest mistakes that people - often blokes, but, we don't dominate this 100% by any means - make. "I gotta deal with this myself because my friends have their own **** going on". Yeah. Everyone has **** going on. Everyone! So the more we share, the less the burden, because the trust and respect is there. (this is not meant to be any sort of comment on your relationship or whatever - it's mroe the opposite - I look at those two sentences up there above, and man you're there already, that's all. She's supportive. No need to think about it in those burden terms!

    When I had my episode, I just made an appointment and the first the doctor knew of what the problem was was when he asked and I told him. I don't recall paperwork being an issue. He just started the process, asked questions, filled out a form, issued a referral (and phoned to make the first appointment), issued a scrip. Just do it, make an appointment, rock up and start looking after yourself.

    Jokes

    A local Smith Family office realised that the organisation had never received a donation from the town's most successful lawyer. The person in charge of contributions called him to persuade him to contribute. "Our research shows that out of a yearly income of at least $500,000, you did not give a penny to charity. Wouldn't you like to give back to the community in some way?" The lawyer mulled this over for a moment and replied, "First, did your research also show that my mother is dying after a long illness, and has medical bills that are several times her annual income?" Embarrassed, the Smith Family rep mumbled, "Um, no." The lawyer interrupts, "Or that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair?" The stricken Smith Family rep began to stammer out an apology, but was interrupted again. "Or that my sister's husband died in a traffic accident," the lawyer's voice rising in indignation, "leaving her penniless with three children?!" The humiliated Smith Family rep completely beaten, said simply, "I had no idea. On a roll now, the lawyer cut him off once again, "So if I don't give any money to them, why should I give any to you?"

    What Really Grinds My Gears 5

    Computers..... Yesterday at about 2pm my laptop all of a sudden refused me access to the internet. It said I had the internet but wouldn't let me access. Grabbed a tablet....logged on...all good....so it was my computer. Ran a complete malware/virus scan which came up fine. What followed was 7 hours of installing and uninstalling devices,drivers,browsers. all to no avai........no matter what i did....even a recovery from back up didn't help. I kept getting different error messages as to why I was having problems.......about 8 of them.....so.....Made the decision it was either a fresh install or a hammer. Tried a fresh install and after a further 4 hours it started up and connected straight away......all the while I'm none the wiser why.....

    Mate go do it, I'm struggling to think of anything more important that your own health. If you have a good GP it helps. They should hopefully then be able to put you on a path . It can be a long road though. @marron is spot on as usual

    Yeah mate, talking to the GP is a really good step, I can only encourage you to do it as soon as you can. It will open up a different range of positive things you can do. They'll be matter of fact about it, no judgement - you fill out the form and they'll tell you what it looks like and then take you through what you can do next. Then it's like anything else... some things won't work, some things will, but when you are in that process, you know that every step is a step forward (even if it doesn't always feel like it).

    No I agree with Middy. What Joe seems to be condemning is violence and riots, not the protesters and it’s true to say that the riots do damage to the cause of the protesters because it demonstrates that people should be fearful. That’s why the rioters were not necessarily out of control protesters but they were extremist groups, including the far right and the far left because their goal is the descent into anarchy rather than the improvement of society.

    Of course they are wise, they wear the red and black (oh, and red and white on away days!) My wife tried to make a doctor's appointment for me through their app for a somewhat unrelated matter on Friday, but I told her I'd do it.. she was a bit stubborn so I had to explain a bit of what was going on (mental health appointments can't be made through the app since there is paperwork I need to pre-fill out apparently). She was very supportive. Unfortunately her mum is in hospital (she's ok) and I don't really want to be a burden on her when she has other things to worry about.

    Everything I've read about NSWPol antagonising, creating hostile situations then trying to justify their actions (especially with what went down in Central Station) doesn't surprise me at all. We've seen it countless times at AL games over the years. But we were just low-born sokkah hooligans that deserved it with our violent conduct I guess.

    Haha. The type of people who were most against locking down at the beginning are the type of people who are most against opening up now.... at least, they are forced into that position because of their position on the protests. Exhibit A most of the Prime Minister's cabinet. Meanwhile schoolkids, parents and teachers have been travelling across the joint in much larger numbers than what were at the protests, every weekday, for a few weeks now. And as for all those good little bunnies doing the right thing for the good of their fellow citizens by staying at home,in reality they were travelling across the whole state over the weekend without a care, and looking forward to going to the footy next weekend. presumeably, they were also deleting their tweets talking about how ridiculous the restrictions are so they could have a go at the protesters. Maybe all these people making sacrifices have some proof they are immune but there was **** all social distancing going on in my town this weekend, and that was replicated across the state. Unity? Yeah right. This hasn't been some battle of britain blitz situation. Whatever "unity" was on display was largely a sham, and if it's only taken people calling on the govenrment to end a situation where there have been 400+ deaths at the hands of police and no charge laid to break it, what was it worth in the first place? All the same, good to see you on the side of big government for once Legia

    I'm not sure it was a race with NZ tbh. It's just silly to suggest otherwise. We have 5 times the population than NZ. Sydney on its own has a higher population than NZ, and we had **** ups like that Ruby Princess liner and the nursing homes. We have done extraordinarily well to contain the virus the way we have, and that has involved govt's of all persuasions, both state and federal. To be honest mate, your Morrison bashing is becoming tiresome, and this is coming from mostly a life long Labor voter.

    Fantastic Kitto, small steps Try to see a GP you’ve seen before, one you know, as with all things their are good & bad GP’s. Good idea making a separate appointment as they can give you a longer appointment rather trying to rush it in 15 minutes. Don't forget you’ve got us if you ever need to use us as a soundboard, we are here for you brother

    He's saying they shouldn't protest because it might lead to an authoritarian government (because "socialism" i guess). Meanwhile trump is using the military to crack down on his people, destroying the free press, getting rid of any independent oversight over government he can manage. Joe's a ****in idiot middy.

    I read it differently ..... as for Kapernick I could be wrong but I think he wrote an article in praise of his stance... Being involved over the years in a number of protests my experience has been if you overplay your hand you give the other side for want of a better team the upper hand and the advantage and that's what I read into the article...

    Squad Development 2019/20 Part 2

    You've got to also appreciate that no one knows what the salary cap will look like next season and whether any players will be signed for the money they currently earn (depending on any renegotiations re: broadcast deal). And that issue is the same for all the clubs.
  39. 2 points
    Yep, seems like the club once again has decided to wait to re-sign their players. Plus if he has re-signed, he can't just announce it in a DailyOzFootball Q & A. Unless he has signed at Macarthur I would say he wouldn't move to any other A-League team and I can't see him signing overseas any time soon.

    It’s a tough one, on one hand we don’t want to open everything up & see all the months of hard work undone. It’s NSW & Vic that both seem to still have community transmission present, so we aren’t in the clear. Many other countries have had our types of lockdown but still have cases in the 00/000’s every day. We are in a enviable position where we have almost eliminated community transmission but at least the majority of those cases are now just imported. On the other hand, if their isn’t a spike in numbers from this weekend then we should be able to see things open up & further restrictions lifted. Our cases are at such a low base that it shouldn’t mean further lockdowns & restrictions. If you see other countries that are opening up, they are seeing further spread & increase in the reproduction rate above 1 (as in 1 infectious person infects 1.x people).

Won't somebody think of the small business owner whose window got smashed? (Of course, they are only important to Joe because true change will come if you get them onside and they can vote in a Democratic candidate who is slightly left of Biden. Yeah, I believe that, nice one Joe, that's the way).

    It's bollocks. We saw it in our own city on Saturday. The vast majority are doing it peaceful, but the cops go to antagonise and make sure Sky is there to make the headlines. That feeds in to people's perceptions, and Joe (and many many others) are happy to continue these perceptions and pretend like the anarchists are hugely powerful and able to collapse society and we should definitely be scared and absolutely just do what we are told by authorities right now. The other part is, that rioting is a reaction to the authoritarianism that already exists. Being patient and trying to get things changed through democratic channels leads to nothing changing. We haev seen that for decades. Which of course is what Joe wants.

    Seems like there are three types of people there. The ones who want to protest, the ones who see it as an opportunity to smash up a Target and steal a flat screen and the ones trying to escalate it for political or ideological reasons. Read a few articles claiming that there are far left anarchists trying to escalate the damage and far right white supremacists trying to start a race war.
