Fellow registrants, this article is a wakeup call to all of us to not isolate, which leads to a downward spiral of depression and despair. We are social creatures.We must form relationships with each other and support teach other. Take the risk.

Roger, Here, Here, I second that emotion. Inspiration or Hibernation are two different issues and we all have issues. Sure we can all go with frame ups in a lot of this registry angle but with much depression that goes along with something like this one should never give up.

Even my own ordeal is a whole different type of affair but who’s heart is evil in this mental breakdown of true justice gone a bit to far. Life is short but taking one’s life is a bit much and very callous. Guess only the strong survive. So unite and stand up for justice. So who’s data basing who’s mind or free basing with of this type of justice.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
