@  Fire Blazer : (13 November 2017 - 08:55 PM) lol, perhaps
@  kirant : (13 November 2017 - 07:19 PM) I assume nostalgia hits as soon as we get old enough to "fall out" of things.
@  Rujio : (13 November 2017 - 03:57 PM) aren't we supposed to be too young for nostalgia or something?
@  Fire Blazer : (13 November 2017 - 06:08 AM) yet it feels bad since somewhere in my heart I miss all that
@  Fire Blazer : (13 November 2017 - 06:08 AM) and even if i am i dont find myself talking about video games much like the old days. esp. not serious conversations on forums
@  Fire Blazer : (13 November 2017 - 06:08 AM) :( idk man i'm hardly even into FE anymore
@  xcrash1998 : (12 November 2017 - 09:50 PM) hi
@  Rujio : (12 November 2017 - 05:46 PM) I mean I'm actually around pretty frequently. But we never do anything.
@  Idiot : (12 November 2017 - 04:13 PM) Not since the fire nation attacked...
@  Valke : (12 November 2017 - 10:07 AM) hi hello anyone here
@  Idiot : (11 November 2017 - 07:51 AM) Blegh, even
@  Idiot : (10 November 2017 - 05:11 PM) same
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2017 - 04:54 AM) meh
@  Fire Blazer : (07 November 2017 - 04:52 AM) yeah, seems fine to me
@  kirant : (04 November 2017 - 07:51 PM) To update the Crunchyroll thing: according to their Twitter page, they've fixed their website.
@  Mercurius : (04 November 2017 - 04:43 PM) if for whatever reason anyone else here hasn't been informed yet, Crunchyroll is currently dangerous to visit due to having been hacked.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 November 2017 - 11:41 PM) and maybe if I have extra budget I can hire Kirant to act as the creative producer on a new AW-like game
@  Fire Blazer : (03 November 2017 - 11:40 PM) anyway, seems we're in agreement with the IS thing, lol. FE is what it is now, we gotta live with that and/or move on I guess, haha. this is why I plan to make my own FE-like game one day
@  Fire Blazer : (03 November 2017 - 11:39 PM) oh, good thing I asked. usually when I hear "mobile" I think it's smartphones and such since that's typically what people are referring to.
@  Idiot : (02 November 2017 - 07:06 PM) Aw man you just triggered nostalgia super hardcore with that lunch comment.

4 years ago, in June. I came to the people of FES asking for help. I was mentally broken and didn't know who to turn to. I was considering suicide. I was ready to give up.


I asked if I should kill myself. I had been crying out for help for a very long time. And looking back, I very much needed help. I consider myself extremely lucky.


The members who commented on that topic back then saved my life. You helped me in ways I can never repay. You guys reassured me and gave me the courage I needed to keep living. And I'm so grateful for it.


Im writing this post as a thank you and a way to let you guys know that things have gotten so much better.


My anemia is still here. And it still gives me trouble. But I don't need to drink blood anymore. I received financial help that enabled me to get the pricier treatments. I've also been actively taking care of my body through diet and exercise. My body has become much stronger. Pretty awesome.


I no longer live with my abusive family. I've been living on my own for a few years now. And honestly, living on my own is hard sometimes. Bills are tough to pay. But I love it. I love waking up every morning and I (usually) go to bed in a good mood.


My life has gotten so much better, and it wouldn't have gotten better if any of my 22 suicide attempts had been successful. You guys reassured me that time. And I fell back into darkness. I tried to kill myself despite what you all told me. I knew how much you guys loved me, but the pain of my parents hate was too much for me to bare.


But nowadays. I'm no longer held back by them. I'm living my own life. I've grown tougher skin, and when people tell me that I should die, I can ignore them, because I know how much I'm loved. I've gained a fire that gives me the strength to live my life however I want.


A month ago, my house was destroyed in an attack by people that wanted me dead. Luckily, I wasn't home. I currently am living in my car, as I can't afford to get a new place at present. This honestly hasn't deterred me all that much. I was never really home much anyway, as I'm always in my car traveling somewhere.


But despite recent hardships, I can live without doubt, and I love it. I know that not everyone loves me, but that doesn't bother me anymore. I know I'm loved. I know I'm important. And the people who think otherwise can screw off. Including my depression.


I am alive, and I love it. And I thank you all for being my friends.

I wasn't ever involved in this either but it's brilliant news to hear you're doing well, you find friends in the most unlikely places whether they be online or real life - there is always someone to reach out to who will listen. Life always gets better, you just have to hang in there to see it for yourself and I'm sure you're glad you did :)

Well holy hell Arim! Glad I could be of some assistance. So glad to hear you're doing better. You are an absolutely amazing dude and the first person I considered a friend here on FES (sorry Pie :P). Wish you a good future, I'll be praying for you. It's a damn fine pleasure knowing you bud.

Yo dude, sorry I didn't see this post until now (so many of us FES members are lazy and I'm a terrible role model)

 

I don't really want to "take credit" for anything, if I said anything back then it was presumably just how I felt

 

what's really important is that things seem to be going a bit better for you and that you're still alive, I know we have very different personalities and views on things but I still appreciate how kind of a person you are and I still respect you a lot as I have, and I know it's the same for others, keep doing what you do and chugging on, knowing that if something lame or tough happens again there are people who've got your back... and your front... and your sides... maybe your top too... idk about under you though that might be creepy lol sorry this turned into a weird kinda joke at the end

I know I'm super late on this thread, but I just want to toss in my thoughts. 

Thanks. Thanks for coming to us, thanks for letting us help you and letting us be your friend. You are now one of the people I consider a closest friend and I feel like there would be a definite gap in my life were it not for you still being here.  Knowing that I was a part, even if small, of keeping you alive and keeping you up until your life got better makes me extremely happy. I'm glad your here and a part of what makes me feel like I'm important as well. I could probably go on and on about all the events I was glad I could be support in and glad you could support me through, but that list would be quite large and I don't feel like tossing that much onto one forum post haha. So I'll leave it with this: Keep being awesome. 


Got Pokemon X/Y or OR/AS? Battle me! Or trade with me... Trading is cool too.

I knew your condition and situation were pretty bad back then, but I had no idea how truly bad it was until now, and honestly, it makes me all the more satisfied that you've gotten past all of it, and moved on.

I'm not taking credit for anything, since I didn't really do much, if anything, to help you get to where you are now. But I'll have to say, you've come a long way since I've first seen you.

 

Even when times are dire, keep pressing forward and don't look back. Keep doing what you're doing right now. It's making you a stronger person, and it shows.
