Holiday over

I am at the end of a 10 day break from work and as usual I do not know how it went by so fast!  I went out last night to my cousins 40th party and enjoyed myself despite my anxiety going through the roof at the start.  So I guess that is a win!  Thank you for the invite and everyone who made me feel welcome.  I really should go to social events more.  It does take a lot out of me though so if I seem reserved at times I apologise.  It is nothing personal.

Almost forgot, for the forum to show up and to be allowed to post you will need to register. I’ll be adding sections to the site and forum quite regular and since I have 10 days off (4 already almost gone though… boo!)  the content should come quicker. Sections will include: Anxiety/Depression related posts (goes without saying) PC tips, tricks, fixes and help Game reviews and discussions …
