No worries RS, my bad for bringing it up! Didn't mean any offence or anything, I was genuinely interested.

Like it or not. The experience makes you. I respect you all the more for it.

Oh I didn't take it as offense; sorry if I gave the impression that it was so. No, it's a problem entirely my own. I still hold a lot (a LOT) of repressed anger over what happened, and over the changes I had to make to my own personality in order to survive. A few incidents on these forums have reminded me from time to time that the violence is still there, simmering beneath the surface, and that it's possible that if I keep dwelling on this stuff, I really might hurt someone who pushes me too far. I honestly don't know where that breaking point is. I do know that it was only two years ago that I had to wake up every morning, remember the stab wounds across my back and shoulder, and mentally prepare myself for the possibility that I would have to fight to the death that day. It takes a lot out of you to always be on guard, always be ready to kill. I think soldiers get PTSD for the same reasons.

In any case, I'm open about everything, but I have to remember that being so is not necessarily healthy for me, or for the people who hear/read it. It's hard to remember what is and is not "within the bounds of what I can stand and still maintain full sanity" for normal people, when you've lived outside those bounds for that long. That's all.

No worries Hug I was only able to edit my second post (but I think that's the one you were talking about anyway). The first one I missed the post time edit deadline. But if you want the other one edited out, I can pm one of the mods and see if they can take it off.

I think you're a pretty amazing person to endure all of that and still be the kind of person you are. I hope things continue to get better for you as time moves on. Hug

RE: The selfie thread
Me in the summer of love. 1967. I know for certain since my parents brought that gear back from an Israel cruise, narrowly escaping the start of the 6 days war.

Me, some five years ago. I shaved off the beard since then, since it made me look older than I am. Will post a new one, once I get around to actually take a picture.

Paternal grandpa. Never got to know him, since he died in '36. Was a bigshot at an insurance company that went crumbling in the Great depression of '29. Ironically called Phoenix, though it never rose from the ashes. He was used to gambling trips to Monaco and summers at Abbazia, so the loss of his position may have contributed to his early death. People say I share certain similarities with him. Dad certainly did. It's mostly the eyes, I guess.
