Following a post from darkshadow about missing members I paged through the members for a few minutes covering maybe 1000 members. Despite being a member since May 2015 (quite an old member judging by the dates of joining) and possibly writing maybe approaching 1000 replies ,just an estimate, I hardly recognised the names of more than say 5 members ,certainly less than 10.
I'm not sure what this indicates (possibly my bad memory) but it certainly left me feeling a bit sad. This forum has been a considerable help to me but it did leave me wondering if this is the degree of support in what I consider a good forum for problems with depression,then do we deserve any more than the limited resources we get ? Obviously the change in ownership of the site will not have impinged yet on a very large part of the membership so I'm a bit disheartened and disillusioned.
Despite which I shall carry on replying as in the past. Even if my attempts to help reach only 10 % of the intended recipients then I'll be reasonably happy. Maybe its like Bridge clubs ,golf clubs ,Rotary clubs etc to name a few activities I used to be involved in and support for anything is just too much effort for most.
