This forum is about looking after your Mates. As an ex Defence member, I like many others have the mental health challenges that a lot of veterans have. We often feel the need to isolate and are often misunderstood by the general community
We each develop a set of strategies to manage our lives, including gardening. living off grid, walking, running and biking. We also indulge in risk taking behaviours such as alcohol abuse and taking other drugs to change our mind states.
RUOK is a way of mates checking on mates. A lot of us are Permies in fact or at heart so this forum aims to meet like minded people who have found their favourite way to turn the storm clouds of life into raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens........ And enjoying being Permies. In connecting, we can ask: RUOK? And we can endeavour to help keep our mates safe.
