Someone make an argument to why I should not leave this place.

Some people just cause me a lot of anxiety wether it’s on here or in pm’s and im at the point where I just can’t handle it anymore.
If there's an issue, you can report content, block user or speak to a mod.

Chin up mate. There are some people here you'd rather not deal with but all in all this forum has some fantastic people.

Had a few reach out to me recently and just having that support after we all came here as North fanatics was genuinely heartwarming.

As Nate said the report button alerts mods to any issues.

Feel free to reach out if you need to chat.

You bring a lot to the board and it would be worse off without you. I really appreciate having some female members and getting their perspective, I wish there were more. Besides I am interested in following your journey in getting into the AFLW team.

I only follow the threads I like, you can turn off the watch on others, and try not to get sucked in to responding to people who give you the shits. Too many good posters get turned away, it would be a shame to lose another. At this time of year I wish Pykie was still around.

Been having computer issues the last week (basically the last 3 months) and its really put things into perspective for me as I tried to pass the time at home just waiting for a delivery of parts and service.
Life's really short and for a guy who's spent the last 2 years at home due to covid etc this hit me pretty hard.
Need to start living my life a lot more than I have been recently.

Has anyone else noticed the tendency for the manipulative, nasty types in any given workplace, whose actions exacerbate and cause mental health issues in their colleagues, are the ones most vocal about the 'R U OK?' stuff? It just feels all very performative and as much as I love the thought behind these initiatives, we probably won't see any meaningful change so long as power dynamics remain unchanged.

Today I had no choice but larf, the Uni I work for has as some would know made some changes to their structure to accommodate Covid. So in their most provincial way they made two people redundant in the department where I work. Myself and my boss.

So they will pay out two and put on three, my role will now be divided between Metro & Regional. So two new staff will share what I did and both will be on more coin than I was on . L O ******* L.

My bosses role has been downgraded. But it will be retained.

This is 100% purely based on the events I've been through. Makes no sense and will cost them more. I'll get north of 140K in my pocket. So I'm not stressed, but do wonder whether this is another case of harassment? Do I push the envelope? Do I want another battle?

But what a couple of years this has been for me.

Walk away mate, start fresh elsewhere imo. You'll be better of for it, emotionally and mentally. Imo.

Unis love a good 'restructure' to get rid of people they don't like. Hilariously the person usually ends up much better off being let go.

Even Denis f*n Denuto could help you out, although the easy way out is likely mentally healthier.
