Good job, Luki!

I, however, have a family life that is turning to shit now as my wife is becoming depressed. This sucks, I'd give all my wealth away to bring happiness.

That's quite unfortunate...I've been through a rough spot recently and all I can say is that things are best said and that getting help is not a sign of weakness no matter what perception and judgment might say. When you need help, go get it no matter what!

Good to hear it. Sounds like a hell of a procedure. Hope you're feeling much improved.

Sucks indeed. As glory device says, getting help is not a sign of failure, but in fact a super-smart move.

Yeah, just look at Zelnick. Don't think that things would have gone very well had "getting help" not been part of the plan.

She sees a therapist on a regular basis now and feels much better.

that's fortunate to hear.
As for me -- still making nothing constructive, just 'living' not really getting anywhere.

Angelfish, Rush said it so well: If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice! The only important aspect is to be happy of your current way of living and take actions accordingly if you aren't.

2-23-6: Glad to hear things are going better :)!

I'm existing. I've been through a lot of ups and downs but I'm existing.

I also wanted to point out about half a year ago I made this topic that I deeply regret ever bringing up. I'm posting this here because I refuse to bump that topic. I felt it was relevant due to the connection with Stardock, but I still feel horrible for bringing it in the first place. Why? It sparked a huge discussion on the board that in the end probably didn't need to be discussed. I sympathized with the Gamergaters as a few of my close friends supported the movement and I have to say that their support of it affected my views on it.

My apology can't right the wrongs I've failed to condemn in the past, but, frankly, I just want to say I'm sorry for being an asshole. Where I am going is trying to be a better person, and to do that I first must acknowledge where I have been.

I say this with the utmost respect: please google it. I'd rather not derail this thread further into that direction. It has already been covered extensively by other sources and discussed in the thread I linked.

I felt that this was an appropriate place to post an apology since this is "where I am going" - to a place of recognizing my own wrongs - without bumping a topic that didn't need to be bumped, but if my post is going to derail this thread Into a discussion about that event then please delete my post. I refuse to be part of another problem.
