    @Benny Much appreciated! I’m elated to say it was the best day of the month by far and having the support I do here and in real life makes all the difference :)

    That's what we are here for: therapy, drugs, and alcohol. ;-)

    Things like this always seem to happen at the most in opportune times.

    That suck, @Mathis1! Take care, friend. If you feel like it, now is the time to binge the hell out of your movie library. ;-)

    Wishing you a speedy recovery, @Mathis1.

    Do like Dragonpol did and take the Paracetamol.

    Oy, @FoxRox a very belated happy birthday from the swamps! It's that medication i got from the mods that's gotten me forgetting the days, and to check in on time.

    (Lovely stuff @Benny, @DarthDimi I don't want the blue stuff anymore thank you very much).

    @Mathis1 take care and get well soon!

    It's clear when there are internet trolls, whether on this site or others.

    Then there are times, when a poster comes along and may challenge the views of other members of a site. This poster engages and prods for the sake of debate and out of an interest of a subject, and sometimes, sometimes intent is lost in text.

    The subtext of the message is misconstrued, and sometimes a few members read these posts as being a troll. They may talk amongst themselves, and since this small group see the same thing, they believe that they must be right.

    But perhaps they're incorrect? Perhaps the tone of a post was misread? And the message or subtext was lost?

    Sometimes I've been caught impulsively responding to a post, thinking I know what the tone or subtext of the message is, and I've been wildly wrong, and had to apologize for my mistake.

    It's good to take a step back, and just pause, and question what the tone or subtext of a message really is (is one really looking for a virtual war of words behind a screen, or is one truly looking to discuss and debate?)...

    Suffering the paranoia of maybe being sicker than you really are has killed me the last several months, and was exacerbated by me actually getting COVID last month. I am prone to frequent bad headaches, but when you add a lack of appetite for even just a little while or dizziness or something, I start to freak out way too much and it’s usually nothing. Someone I know came to work possibly carrying some kind of flu, which doesn’t help ease things at all. And I know there’s a big new stomach bug going around, norovirus. Too many things to worry about x(

    Though all my other COVID symptoms seem to have gone, I still have been going through dizzy spells every so often which I’ve read can last months or years after contracting COVID. I really hope this will go away sooner than that.

    Nothing wrong with worrying about your own welfare @FoxRox
    I'm going to guess you've seen your GP, just for piece of mind?
    Either way, hope you're feeling fit and well real soon.

    I noticed I couldn't get in to Facebook Messenger earlier but thought it was just my silly phone.

    Yes. I wish schools in my country would act a little faster to follow that example.

    If only Meta, TikTok and the rest of that "socials" crap would shut down for a week, the world would be a happier place for it. All I can say as someone who works with teenagers is that those crappy platforms damage many teen brains.
