The black dog is still barking!

I would like to thank everyone for the support they have given me over recent days. It has really helped lift my spirits.

I don't seem to be moving out of this episode of depression as quickly as I had hoped, but I am coping  better now than I was a couple of days ago. I hope to be back to normal very soon ... and when I am I will begin blogging and wargaming again.

The black dog is still barking ... but not as long or as loudly as it was.


  1. One suggestion that I have is that (weather permitting) you get out into a natural setting if you can.

    By the sea or a river, in a meadow or forest . . . and just relax. Just "be" there and breathe. Don't look for anything special; just relax and enjoy the sun, the breeze, the smells, the colors of vegetation or water.

    A natural setting can be very soothing. Lean back and enjoy the clouds. Relax.

    I've always found this to be a very good way to allow the black dog to wander away from me . . . and I hope that it might be the same for you.

    Hey hey, my good man.. you hang in there, good times come, good times go, bad times come, bad times go, this too will pass.

    I find it helps to get in touch with my feminine side - I reach out, I grab her butt. I say "How 'bout it, babe?", I pick myself off up from the floor and vow never to read woman's magazines again. But it, too, passes. Don't know how that helps, actually, but it's worth a try...


  3. Keep hanging on there Bob.

    You'll pull through in due course.


  4. Keep going ,you'll get there...
    I was pleased you were up to leaving a comment on my blog and took it as a good sign.

    Think on the positives. You're a great asset to the hobby and undoubtedly in many other walks of your life.

    Get well soon.


  6. Hang in there Bob, things look bad in a trough but you'll soon be back on a peak.



  7. Any improvement is good. Here's to more of the same!

  8. I don't know much about this sort of thing, but whenever I'm feeling like two ton of old fishheads, I find it does help a little to do something a little bit different, such as Bluebear Jeff's suggestion. I guess it's just a way of hunkering down and waiting it out.

    No doubt we'll see you back in form soonish...
