Forexample, when you see a thread discussing MCR’s latest video and you want toshare your favorite part, please post in the existing thread rather thanstarting a new one. Asking questions isn't necessarily a bad thing; however,please use the search button first. Do not post the same thread in more thanone forum. This will all keep the board less cluttered and help things to runmore smoothly. Please post topics in their appropriate forums. If youposted a thread (that doesn't belong in the forum it was posted in) and it hassuddenly disappeared, chances are it has been moved to the appropriate forum.Please look there and please DO NOT re-post a moved thread because you cannotfind it.

We’re all here for the same reasons. Also, don’t hesitate to contactthe board admin/mods. They’re here to answer your questions and make thismessage board a great place for all fans to hang out. If you stick aroundthough, you'll make friends and participate in a lot of fun activities. **That said, please be extra cautious giving out anypersonal information. Additionally, do not post anyone else’s personal/ privateinformation on the boards.** 4. Respect Board Members: Please be respectful of others. It is ok to have an opinion;however, it is not an invitation to bash someone. Disagreement is OK.Controversy is OK. Everyone can be respectful when they disagree. There is noneed to get nasty over a disagreement. Keep in mind that people of all agesread these boards. Some people may kid around and be sarcastic, but I thinkpeople can generally decipher the difference. Provoking them will not solveanything and if they are bothersome to everyone (and its obvious), they will betaken care of. Report ANY thread you think a moderator should look at.Sometimes the board admin/mods might miss a thread. If you find spammers,obnoxious threads, or anything you think should be reported, send the mods/admina message or report the thread (see below for more info on reporting posts). 5. Personal Attacks and Trolls: Sometimes, disagreements can turn into personal conflicts. This canbe classified as something going beyond a minor disagreement and it turninginto something that can be handled outside of the boards. Please, try to avoidthese, or they will be handled otherwise. However, if someone makes fun of youbecause you didn't read the above listed advice, that is NOT considered apersonal attack. There is a difference. If it needs to be more clearly definedlater, that can be arranged. 6. Closed/DeletedThreads: Please be aware that if you don't follow the rules, there will beconsequences. It’s up to the discretion of the board admin and moderators.Threads/posts can get deleted, edited, or closed when deemed appropriate. Mostlikely there is an explanation why a thread has been closed; however, if youare unsure why one of your topics gets closed or deleted, contact the admin/modthat closed it. Threads/posts will ALMOST never be disposed of for an opinion.However, the option is always there for a thread to be deleted/edited(especially if it goes against the board regulations). 7. Reporting Posts:Do you see a post/thread with content that you think violates some of the ruleslisted above? Most of the time a board admin or mod will catch it. If it’s notclosed or handled quickly, feel free to report the post. Although they try, itis not possible for admin/mods to view every post on every page all the time.Any help you can provide in helping us solve these problems is greatlyappreciated. When reporting a post, please make sure to include a descriptionwhy the admin/mod needs to address the thread or post. It will help them knowwhat they are looking for instead of reading through pages of posts.

Also, please don't use a large font or bright colors as yourdefault posting settings. It's ok to use once in a while, but can make yourposts difficult for members to read. 10.

Direct links to such files will beremoved promptly and threads will be closed if it gets out of hand. Please keepsuch discussion segregated to private messages. If you're unsure whether or notsomething is a bootleg, here's a simple rule of thumb - if someone sitting inthe audience recorded it, it's a bootleg. Officially recorded aired ontelevision, radio, etc are perfectly acceptable. If you're still unsure, do nothesitate to contact a mod asking whether or not the audio/video you'd like topost is an illegal recording. This is both out of respect for MCR and any otherperformers, as well as to conform to all applicable copyright laws. 11.

Sister Wives 3: The Regeneration

Recommended Posts

I love Christmas!

I know I could have done the job which is the frustrating thing, but I'd have also melted down in the interview and just embarrassed myself. The condition of me cancelling it was that the next phone call I made was to the Dr so I can start sorting my anxiety etc out. He wanted to put me on anti-depressants 😓

I dunno much about mental health but I do know that when I have experienced depression and anxiety they've definitely been two different brands of shite, albeit two that often hang out together. I've had a lot of help with anxiety just by talking about it with people who listen (the broke person's CBT I guess), is there any counselling available? I think if I'd tried to medicate the anxiety away it might've helped the symptoms but not the cause, but it's your call of course.

I love Christmas too, but I'm so poor I've started buying gifts already to balance out costs, and I'm promoting my Etsy stuff for Christmas which is like shouting very loudly into a room of other people shouting. Send me to new year and a nap. :blink:

That's probably part of my problem, I don't talk to anyone about anything. I said I'd rather not go down the medication route, which he was fine with, but did suggest it may be a good short term idea as the wait for counselling can be 6 - 12 months. Still, I've felt like this for 10+ years so another year can't hurt too much.

I feel you on the money front. I start buying Christmas presents in the January sales haha! Good luck with your Etsy bits, do you have a link to your shop?

Happy Halloween (for yesterday)! Onto Christmas now!

 

So funny story, I got an interview for that job, had an anxiety attack and then cancelled it an hour beforehand  👍

Don't forget about American thanksgiving! Everyone does... but it celebrates food and friendship, so I think it's a good holiday to remember...

At least you called! I would have just no-showed. I would also probably wait for counseling to be available rather than starting on medication. This is just knowing how often it takes 6-12 months or longer to actually find the right prescription...

Happy thanksgiving! If there's food, I'm there.

Good point Rachel, I have a friend who went on beta blockers and it turned out that what she had was completely unrelated to needing beta blockers. Kerry is there a free service/charity in your area that could help? There's one in my town called Mind, you can literally walk in and talk to someone. I'm not sure how national it is, though.

My Etsy is: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/FrancescaBurke (psst there's always free UK postage and from Monday through 30th November there's gonna be a giant promotion for international customers offering free postage on orders over £10)

I'd love to come and celebrate Thanksgiving in America some time. Although it's kind of tradition in Britain to have roast dinner every Sunday, so that's no different 😂

I didn't want to burn any bridges for the future, although I'm not sure I'd ever be brave enough to apply there again!

Thanks for the advice, he wasn't really pushy about it but he never went into the possible benefits of it either. I'd be interested if anybody has any stories to share if they'd be comfortable (or PM me), as although I said no, I haven't completely ruled it out.

I think Mind is a national thing, although I think what I'm being referred to is kind of the same thing.

I'll check your etsy out when I get chance :)

I have no own experience with that kind of medication Kerry, but someone close to me were on anti depressants, and ended up with no moods at all... like even though the sadness disappeared, the happiness went away as well. Also, quitting them was awful... but I guess it might be a good solution for some.

Hey Kerry, I've had some anxiety issues recently too, to the point where I left my last job as I was having constant anxiety attacks, but I never talked about it online. I hope things improve for you. My recent anxiety stories go back all the way to May (Which is why I've been a bit incognito) now I'm medicated, though i still struggle with basic tasks due to anxiety, if you need someone to talk to my PMs should be open. Rachel does have a very valid point though, at least you called in that situation. 'I know I definitely couldn't have done that.

 

I see Etsy has been talked about. I've explored the avenue of Etsy with selling my photography, but I found a site called Pixoto. Unfortunately I have to sell my photography under my birth name (which I still hate), until I can think of an ideal pseudonym, huh, still thinking on that one. Once I have a pseudonym I can change the URL. I don't just want to be "Mr Mercury" for everything. Sorry Freddie  Since I'm now unemployed and getting married next year, this is how I hope to make a bit of money, though I'm not sure if it's viable, in that, i'm not sure if any would sell at all, maybe I'm being pessimistic, I'm not sure... anyway. I would however like you guys to offer me feedback on my current portfolio, I know I'm just starting out! http://www.pixoto.com/jakemottram

Roast dinner as a mini thanksgiving kind of sums up Britain.

Whichever route you go down, good luck! I have no stories myself but I hope it works out. 

I can't live without my weekly roast dinner!

Thank you 😊

Thanks for the advice, both of those were concerns of mine so good reasons to avoid I think.

I'm glad you've been able to seek out help. I find letting yourself appreciate the small achievements helps, even if it's speaking to someone you've not spoken to before or just getting dressed and going out. It's hard for other people to understand how difficult that can be sometimes!

I'll check it out, I like the pseudonym Jake Mercury, or maybe you could pick out another name related to Queen (or MCR :P)

Definitely appreciating small achievements helps, i've been struggling to acknowledge them at times, it's tricky. I've been speaking about a disorder I have called Trichotillomania recently, it's certainly helped me feel less guilty.  You're right though, it's hard for people to understand, and of course, that often makes our anxieties worse.

That's a good pseudonym but I want to completely avoid using my birth name if possible. I could use Ash/Ashley Mercury, but I've used that so many times -_- Pseudonym's are hard.

Ash if it helps any, Etsy doesn't really care what name you use as long as your info behind-the-scenes works out (publicly you can be literally anyone as long as you're not nicking a copyrighted name). Good luck with your work though, I love the dog photo. :)

Thanks for that Francesca, I've looked into Etsy and will probably use it in the near future. Since I'm starting out I'm going to stick to Pixoto to see if i can sell a few.

I wonder if pseudonym generators are a thing...
