  1. Hey Thanks Void.. I dragged one off the region Im on a mainland region close to the edge and it vanished not to return. BUT the other building was more interesting. I dont know how but it had duplicated over 100 times (stopped counting), but eventually ....gone....Thanks to all of you guys for youe help.
  2. My Doctors, a psychiatrist and a psychologist, have both encouraged me to participate in sl support groups. As I said in my first post they and others like them are looking to see if virtual worlds can be used as a tool to encourage people into communicating and learning life skills involving other people. I mean that is how we exist in daily lives through interaction with others. So they would like to see if worls such as SL can be of benefit. That is why they have asked me to produce a monthly synopsis if you like, on my experiences. They have seen how much it has helped me and maybe it can be used to help others. Its obvious that this is happening in other parts of the world, as per the research under taken by agnepolder.
  3. Agneponder finished his research to which I was apert of. When he first made contact he emailed his credentials etc and I gladly took part. i beleive he no longer is in SL
  4. Tell me where did I call you anything....that was a quote from a famous psychologist look it up. It must be grand to have such an ego and be so self indulgent. A few days ago I again tried to take my own life ...Thinking that my selfworth was climbing I was feeling that maybe you were right maybe I don't need anyone's help in here and Real life.....Perhaps all I need is conversation and take a walk a day and who needs meds because apparently ....All I need is to keep listening to people like you....you don't have opinions you have ideology you have structures that you believe all people must fit into.. You didn't get me this time though..But maybe next..
  5. iIm not sure It seems to be these 2 items Almost all of the peices of the buildings have deleted but for some reason there are still 20 or so bits of each that wont delete. If I rez something else I amd able to delet that no problem. Furthermore it seemed to happen as i was moving onto anothere peice of the building to delete and then it stopped doing it.
  6. I have rezed 2 buildings on my land and have tried to delete them but I cant. The delete button is active Icant Take I cant Take Copy and when I hit shoe all owners objects on parcel in the about land nothihg Highlights Also when I hit return The objects dont move. I have tried dumping cache tried V2 and Pheonix Viewers log out Shut down Computer Nothing works Can anybody help please.
  7. One does not need to role play as a psychologist to diagnose one as an a**hole. It is what it is..
  8. Just thought Id post some examples of the paintings. These are given to you to keep at no cost, as appreciation for your support.
  9. Actually I was not making a point al all. Your inference is the same as what we hear every day of our lives. The only conclusion one can draw from your argument is don't go out of the house don't talk to anyone just shut up and stay in your own world. We use voice in our groups a utility that Im blowed if I know why more people don't use. 90% of the time in these groups our conditions are not discussed. Its for friendship[,support and fellowship. We all have our own doctors that we use . As I said we don't use SL as a diagnostic tool but as a treatment tool. And part of these conditions perpetuates the loneliness that you are suggesting we should follow. Anyone that comes into second life to get advice or diagnostic evaluation is for sure on a dangerous path. I have in all the time I have been in SL have never met anyone such as that. Not to say they don't exist but I haven't met any. The folks I deal with daily are carers of patients mental health workers psychologists and people running the whole spectrum of mental illness. Its the friendship , the support and above all the acknowledgement of being here right now that we gain strength from. "Often people who are depressed and vulnerable suffer from the TMI condition (too much information)..They can't filter out what's personal and shouldn't be shared. " Where is this based in fact. The Bipolar people I know myself included dontshare feelings or thoughts when they are depressed. Quite the opposite. That is why when people are suffering these illness they go for years undetected. In my case 14 years. I told know one of what was happening to me and if fact when the realization occurs that something is wrong one becomes ashamed and therefore shuts down further. I am by no means cured. I am on the road to a better life stylethanks in part to the support and encouragement of kindred souls in here. That's what Im grateful for. A poor young Psychology student started this thread. Why because he wants to help. He has chosen to spend his adult working life helping others cope. And in asking for help to begin that journey, what does he get...Read all of the above.
  10. I have been involved with SL since 2004, periodically leaving and returning, as most do. I have been diagnosed with bipolar affective disorder with suicidal ideation. That basically means that in my depressed episodes I constantly think about and plan the taking of my own life. Whilst in this state I fool myself into waiting “just one more hour, if you still feel the same then do it”, until finally the feeling passes. It can take days for the feeling to subside and after this I am totally drained of energy. As hard as I try though, sleep does not come easy. Another thing I do when the dark thoughts come is to paint. I use digital art to ride the feelings out and when I start to paint I seem to paint as fast and as detailed as I can. The feelings pass after concentrating on small areas for considerable lengths of time. So how did I get to this point....? I was diagnosed with this despicable illness in September 2010 at the ripe old age of 52. But wait there's more...apparently I have had this illness for the past 14 years or so, and have gone through that part of my life with no medication no guidance no support and no knowledge. I just thought I was the cause of everything that was going wrong in my life, my marriage, my work, my kids..........etc etc.. Understanding. That is the key. But most don’t. I have a relative who had enquired of my doctor after I was diagnosed with bipolar affective disorder with suicidal ideation, ‘so... does that mean he has a mental illness? ”. I kid you not. I hate being a conversation starter at ladies craft groups or being offered ‘non professional’ opinions on how to ‘beat it’ or my favourite, ‘pull yourself out of it’. Adding a diagnosis or prognosis, or a cause or a presumption of how this happened is the underpinning of all that is misunderstood or not understood about mental illness. What I’ve found is people think they know all about your condition, in fact, all mental health issues. How?.....By listening to other people with the same assumptions with no factual knowledge at all. Everything that people say in their lunch rooms or dinner parties, out and about in everyday conversation about so and so’s mental condition, effects all parts of a person with these conditions lives. Whatever you discuss whatever your opinion is will be disseminated to someone else, have their spin on it and then passed on again. Pretty soon what started as conjecture and assumption becomes fact, in the eyes of those with little understanding. These ‘facts’, affect our employment prospects, our social interactions, our relationships, and our ability to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Instead, a lot of us only see that bright light at the end of the tunnel, calling our name. ‘Facts’ that are being perpetuated until those soles afflicted and exhausted of will, believe those ‘facts’ themselves. So I re-entered SL not to fall deeper into a fantasy world that I could easily let consume me but to seek others like me. And I found them. Hundreds of them, of us. We all use this platform as a treatment tool as our own research tool not for diagnostic. Crickey my own 3 doctors have even asked me to prepare a paper for them so they can look at commending SL to their other patients, such has been the improvement in me. I have found that unlike real life I can help people like me in SL. However, I have lost most of my skill sets that you all take for granted in your every day lives. Conversations, humour even feelings of intimacy can be rediscovered in a safe environment like second life. That is how I have progressed, through learning again, those skills in SL and slowly introducing them to real life. So for those of you who poo poo the idea of researchers asking questions about SL/RL remember, no personal information is given out. They have only known me as Danny Noyes. I have participated in many over the last few months including agnepolder’s. And besides I don’t care who knows about me. If I stay hidden the disease wins again, and I’ve had enough of loosing. I want to show myself so that others may want to join me. I’ve read in the forums yet again today complaints about Lindens doing so and so to the viewer and causing lag etc etc. Hardly a day goes by when someone else doesn’t complain. Lindens should be congratulated and thanked for providing this type of environment for people like me to try and gain their lives back. I bet in that warehouse on Linden Alley where Linden World began, they never though it could be used in such a positive, beneficial way for people suffering mental health issues, an opinion that has been expressed to me more often in the past few weeks. I have formed a group The SL Group for Mental Illness, all are welcome. And you can see examples of artists work who suffer from mental illness at The Art of Mental Illness - Art Gallery in Saphira. (You can find it in search)
