Q: 2021/22 What competition should we prioritise this season?
a. The league is our bread & butter, so this year let's have a club sandwich
b. We're owed an FA Cup after Gerrard nicked our last one in 06, our name's on it in 22
c. A bye to the League Cup 3rd round gives us a good start, let's make it count
d. The Europa is our best ticket to the Champions League, this is the one
e. What's wrong with you, let's do the lot, has the quadruple ever been done

Been through bad time lately with suffering with this. Dark thoughts as well. I know some posters on here suffer with this. Anyone come through the other side of this shit?

Wiltell has been yellow carded and told to stay off this thread unless he has anything constructive to add.This is a thread that has been very useful to so many, for any others with scores to settle argue on another thread.
This thread is sacrosant.Thank you

Re: Anxiety/depression
Thanks for all the messages, very much appreciated
Its been a long road to get back to some sort of normality and desire for life again but I'm getting there. The icing on the cake will be getting my partner over from the Philippines just in time for Christmas.
Another 3 points on the road always brings a smile too.

Re: Anxiety/depression
I read this thread often and with great interest, but not having never suffered from MI I really have very little (apart from support) to offer.
However I did lose my cousin to depression (alcohol finally taking him) several years ago. I knew absolutely nothing about his troubles. He hid it, and the excessive drinking that accompanied it, very well, until the damage was done.
I read this thread and see others who are unfortunately suffering, or have suffered, offering unconditional support to each other. As it should be (in my humble), regardless of who we support.
Dean was a hammer. How I wish I, and indeed others close to him, knew of his pain. But what strikes me most is how I wish he had access to this thread, to seek the help he needed and the support of others who’ve walked the same road.
To those who offer support on this thread, and those that seek it, I salute you all!

Re: Anxiety/depression
Blimey, what a pleasant surprise Steve.
Great to hear you’re doing well and on the up. I’m sure things will fall into place for you now and this thread definitely helps.
A problem shared is a problem halved.

Re: Anxiety/depression
Big love to all you boys. Keep sharing, it really helps. You’ve helped me as well, more than you will know.

I totally understand you taking a break from the internet Steve, I have done the same and it helps to clear the head from all the noise we get around us these days. Not all of that noise is online, but it plays a big part so it does help to switch off for a stretch. I’m also delighted you’re still here and finding a way. Thanks for updating us mate.

I’m going to offer my number to anyone (via Whomail) who needs a chat. I haven’t got all the answers at all, but I’ve been on the brink a few times and it helps to share coping strategies.

Big hugs to you all xx

Re: Anxiety/depression
What words fit?

Great news that you are managing this, Steve - you've taken a thread that was already heading "in the right direction" even further so.

I say that as a complete outsider here as I really struggle to get a handle on what many on here are going through - but you are West Ham, so I suspect I'm not alone when I say we're all behind you (ooh- err, mrs.).

Post more - even if it is just to call me a complete twat.

Re: Anxiety/depression
Well this thread has turned out to be a lifesaver for many and to hear from Steve is like the icing on the cake. Let's a help one another get all the problems straightens out that need to be straightened out and put down next year as one of the best we have all had for along time.
Steve everything ur doing makes sense..westham67 knows all about that stuff so reach out to him. Very happy news that is. Made my day. 👍

Re: Anxiety/depression
That's very good news Steve I am glad you managed to get yourself right . If you need some advice about visas you can get a 6 month visit visa of a settlement visa which means she could work

For the 6 month visit visa you or another party has to sponsor her for living cost for 6 months. A letter , bank statements and a tenancy agreements

Re: Anxiety/depression
Good afternoon everyone, thought I would just check in and let you all know that everything is okay.
Thank you seriously to everyone who has messaged and commented to see if I was okay
I took some time away from the Internet, social media etc
Took some me time and hit the gym, put myself into work which is a health kick in itself, eating better etc and have a better out look on life now.
A big part of my life now is trying to get my on/off girlfriend here from the Philippines. Having someone around who want syo be with me, sharing problems with her and spending time just not being on my own with my thoughts will help me move on from pretty much a bad year, mentally.
The hammers having a good season so far and watching us hold our own in Europe surely helps to have a brighter outlook aswell.
Again everyone, thank you all for the messages, I really appreciate it.
Hope everyone else is doing alright and enjoying our Europe's league exploits so far.

Re: Anxiety/depression
Its like lego, just keep building everyday and doing a bit more each time. I'm getting better and better. I'm enjoying the boxing chat on here. Also my boys 3rd brithday on Saturday so I got that to look forward to and then west ham Sunday so already I have things to look forward to at end of this week so it makes this week worthwhile. I think my missus is off a week later for half term (she a teacher) so then that's my next thing to look forward to cos then we can do things as a family. I love you lot too. Never forget that. All of you.

Re: Anxiety/depression
Been struggling the last few days, over the last month the boy has been quite poorly, which I've caught off him - on top of having norovirus twice and this fucking chest an throat infection.

Throwing in the lack of sleep due to the baby not being well and unsettled, I'm feeling absolutely fucked and run down.

Need a break, had little to no time for myself with so much going on at the weekends, where I usually take a day to go fishing which really helps my mental state but not having had that, has seen me struggle a fair bit.

Re: Anxiety/depression
Best weekend for ages. Saturday went shopping with family and decided to take this tourist train on wheels that I've always resisted going round cannes cos I thought u looked like a tourist knob but did it and found out loads about my town which really cheered me up and made me feel like I belonged a bit more. I won't lie I did have a irosh coffee for lunch before I did it but under the watchful care of my wife. Was just to loosen me up a bit. Then Saturday evening watched football and then set alarm for fury fight. Sunday was nice cos wife went out so I sat alone watching football kid free. Woke up today feeling 'normal'. Having sport to talk about takes ur mind of stuff. The important thing for ur brain is to have something to care about. That's when I find I start to win again. To care about outside of family I mean.

Jesus I messaged him too ages ago. Little did I know what was coming round the corner at me. I really hope he is ok. Can't a mod look at his login details and find an email address

Re: Anxiety/depression
Good to see such positivity on here and fellow Whoers managing/sorting out their troubles one way or another and making good progress. Really is a great tonic and one that I’m sure will help everyone achieve their goals.

We just need Stevethehammer to let us know he’s safe and well. Anyone heard anything?
Deeply concerning now.

Re: Anxiety/depression
On a thread about anxiety/depression that's probably the worst advice imaginable. Might as well say "just drink more booze"
