Hey Jason - don't go disappearing on us mate! We're your friends.

What's happening at the moment to make you feel like this?

We're here.



Hi Kazzl

Pain mental and physical and overwhelming feeling like im being played.

Jase, clearly having a rough time of it at the moment. You can rest assured that we are all standing right beside you. We are not going anywhere.

Now would be a good time to get to the beach and chill. Listen to the sounds, smell the smells and if Huey is sending it down, grab a wave. Get in that water mate, feel it.

Take time to settle mate, breath deep and try and relax. Control that mind.

Don't leave us mate, we care very much for you.

Dear Jason~

You sound down and in no fit state to make any plans at the moment, just rest up, or do like Mark says and get to the beach. Get grounded. That's important tonight, not the government or anything else.

You can worry about other things later. Health first. Nobody here is playing, we are all here for you.

Breath and relax.


Hi Jason,

Sorry i didn't reply.......i been suffering from a bit of stress myself lately. I'm all good now.

No ones playing you. We all have issues here on this forum. Chris B the community manager told me the other day. Everyone suffers a bit of anxiety.

I do hope you get your foot looked at. I think fixing one thing at a time will slowly get you feeling better. There is no quick fix for this. Slow and steady wins the race.

I will be checking in on you tomz.
