  1. I found out I qualified for the Kayak Bass Fishing National Championship this year and I was too nervous to do it so I passed. Felt bad doing that after my wife told me I should. My goal is to qualify for it again, suck it up and do it. I've dealt with it my whole life but never realized what it was until a couple years ago when we took my son to the doctor. Always thought I was just not an outgoing person unless I felt comfortable. Turns out it's been anxiety. What really bothers me the most is seeing my son struggle with it more than I did and I don't want him to miss out on all the opportunities I missed out on because I was too scared. Nothing like seeing your children getting your crappy traits.
  2. I love being outdoors. Moved outside of town last year and have a few acres to enjoy. It is therapeutic and love to go fishing. I love fishing and even fish some online tourney's. This year I really want to fish some live tourneys but it gives me major anxiety thinking about it. It's hard to fight past that feeling but I'm going to do it this year. I've found the best thing to do is just do it but the time leading up to it is very hard.
  3. Do you spend a lot of time outdoors?
  4. I have mild anxiety and my wife wants me to see a doctor about getting meds for it. I'm very reluctant.
  5. Seems a bit hypocritical coming from Trump. Wasn't he a coward for dodging the draft?
  6. I would not dodge the draft but I would need to know what the cause is. I'm not fighting some BS war that doesn't threaten my country. I will fight to protect my family and my country.
  7. I agree with the drugs. My best friend had some personal issues and did some drugs. He still seemed to be doing alright but did hang out with some people he should not have. He started seeing a doctor and they put him on some meds. It seemed like he was starting to get serious about turning his life around and I was really happy for him but he still seemed different, not in a good way. Seemed too mellow and zoned out. He killed himself that summer, 5 years ago. I still break down crying occasionally when I think of him. Can't help but think I could have helped him more but I was too busy starting my family. My other friends who were also close to him blame the meds he was put on.
  8. I agree. There is one major difference and that is guns. I don't think we'll ever see the 2nd amendment changed and minimal changes will happen with guns so we're going to have to find other ways to help limit these shootings.
  9. I believe bullying happens everywhere. It's human nature.
  10. I 100% believe he was bullied to a certain degree. Even if he wasn't really bullied he may still hate other students. A kids doesn't need to be bullied to be an outsider. If they are mentally ill they seem to have a late of rage, jealousy, hate. They may think things that are not actually happening and this is why they are disturbed. It could be an infatuation with a girl and if he can't have her then no one can. Who knows what his trigger what.
  11. He's just going to ignore all of this like he's done with everyone else that proves him wrong.
  12. I agree and I felt that way at first too but we elect these people and they are suppose to be doing that. We've gotten away from that for a while now.
  13. Isn't that his job? It's sad this is what politics have turned into. We're so impressed when they actually do their jobs regardless if it's good or not.
  14. That's certainly one way of doing it. They already struggle to do all of that but they can do even more I suppose. The thing about those stadiums is that the sports that take place there help generate income for the school and can even help recruit more students to their school.
