    Joel’s going in tomorrow,Prof Ray won’t be able to see him till then and we’ve decided it’s best to wait for him.
    Any change and we can take him straight to the Head and Neck ward at the Hallamshire but Joel’s happy to hang on at home rather than have a night at hospital,I’ll come back to you when we’ve been seen.
    Cheers

    I know it sounds bonkers but everyone’s doing ok,everyone is helping each other and Joel is such a positive influence because he has been through so much everyone respects him massively.
    Hopefully Lynne will feel able to talk about because she saved Josh and I don’t know what to say about that.
    We just tend to look at each other and let out a sigh and go,’that was close’,followed by,’which one’!
    CPR on your child isn’t in the rules surely.

    Barkley has been fine for England for the last 5 games he's played. Definitely better than Mount and deserves to be ahead of Maddison.
    2-1 England.

    The above cliche has never been more apt.
    After 2 weeks of trying to ignore Derby County i am now back in the game.
    I've just looked at the next 6 games with a good sense of realism. I believe (slightly pessimistically) the following may happen;
    Cardiff - D
    Leeds - L
    Birmingham - D
    Barnsley - W
    Luton - W
    Charlton - D
    Now.. This looks pretty bad. But it will take our points tally to 15 points from 12.
    At the same point last season we had 18 points. So being pretty pessimistic we'd be 1 win behind that. Cardiff & Birmingham are both definitely winnable & Leeds/ Charlton are far from unbeatable. 
    Our fortunes could look very different in a heartbeat. Writing the season off now or after the next 3 games would be absurd.

    My foster lad plays for Derbyshire in Disability Cricket (mixture of physical and learning difficulties) and yesterday they beat Yorkshire in the national final. The teams ages range from 18 to 72.
    Chasing 194 in 35 overs they were 20 for 4 but recovered to win by 4 wickets with 2 overs to spare. To add to the accomplishment the lad who was verbally abused on camera at Nottm train station last year by a Forest idiot scored 43 not out off around 36 balls to win us the game. 
    Sometimes sport comes good in the end.

    In light of @angieram's recent thread on the main forum, I'd just like to say a belated personal thank you for the above reply.
    I've kind of clung onto your message of this too will pass, whether or not that  was your intention I'm not sure, but it's been helpful nonetheless.

    It just shows you never know how someone is feeling, you dont truly know someone or what they are going through, especially on an internet forum.  Football can be a release, posting on here can help someone feel part of something. Even if someones opinions are negative, this could be a reflection of their personal life.
    This is why I never attack anyone on here regardless of a posters views or opinions, sometimes it can really be something so small that acts as the straw that breaks the camals back, so just think before you post.
    Debate is perfectly fine, but sometimes there is a fine line between banter and being hurtful.

    Thanks. The majority of the time I'm very happy, like now. When I'm on a high I feel unstoppable and now I know when I feel at my lowest that it won't last. The constant cycle can be a bit tiring. It's like 2 steps forward, 2 steps back every month. I will work my way through though! Constant research will make me a master.

    @Smyth_18, I was going to message you but as @Alpha and @Leeds Ram have already responded on here I will just say there's no right or wrong answer. Everyone is different and the best thing you or anyone can do is recognise those feelings and do something about it. 
    Alpha is right that talking helps - it doesn't have to be a 'professional' you can find good listeners everywhere. 
    We hand out little leaflets (z-cards) at the ground with signposts to Samaritans and local services but a good friend or relative can be just as effective. 
    As can following the "5 Ways to Wellbeing" and making sure you have your own ways of coping when things start to get you down. Little things like exercise, diet, breathing exercises and fresh air make a big difference.  
    I also have extreme anxiety and when I went on a resilience training course last year (sounds a bit new age but it was really helpful!) one of the things I brought away from it was a simple statement the you can't always change the things that are making you anxious but you can change the way you react to them. I found that really helpful.
    PS The best advice is often from other people who have been through similar experiences.

    Then I'd say yes, you have considered suicide. 
    If you've sat there and said "is it really worth carrying on?" and decided that yes it is, then you're not ok. 
    I'd say one of depressions favourite tricks is to make you put on a brave face. In depression where you're in a constant battle with yourself then there can be a part of you that puts on a brave face to yourself. You put yourself under more pressure to get on with it. Then that's when depression can really get to work and torment you. As you try to be the person you want to be but ultimately are crap at it and so are a further disappointment. 
    If half of you is asking the other half about suicide then don't applaud the side that says "I'll be alright." You need to be concerned about where the question is coming from. That needs addressing. Because left unchecked then the answer could become "Yeah, I need to get out"
    I'm not a professional so @angieram might tell me off for giving poo advice. But I'm still here and my head isn't always working very well. So if my choices work for me then they might help someone else out.

    The tough question for me is asking if i have ever considered suicide.
    I've felt worthless & whether i really wanted to be alive on many occasions, but never to a point that i think i may go through with it.
    The worrying thing is, how quickly can that change? 
    Must stress that i wouldn't say i am depressed, just highly anxious.
