I do not believe that this forum is the place to be recommending a prescriptive medicament - especially not one of this kind i.e. a benzodiezapine / valium type ;-)).


If you read OPs first post, he mentioned his doc put him on Temesta.

Glad to see that porsch (or a mod, I see he has been banned for a month) deleted his comment.

Not sure it was a ban worthy comment tbh, especially a month, much worse comments than that don't lead to bans.

To a certain extent I agree with Richdog - you can't expect to come onto a forum, where there is a good chance that many of the users will have extremely positive views on a subject, and proceed to slag off the subject - in this case Switzerland.

The OP may (or may not) have the most heartbreaking story and struggled through adversity worthy of adding one more task to Hercules' list, but letting it all fly in one post ends up leaving many (perhaps more cynical) users questioning their motives and not being entirely convinced; while a bunch more ("think of the kittens") users going all soft - ending up with mud and rep slinging. (But then, this is a forum and that's what will happen).

Then I guess there is more to it than that post. Whilst it was an insensitive post it did actually make a lot more sense before the original post was edited and from my point of view that post alone was not enough to warrant a ban let alone a permanent one.

Reading the explanation provided by Ace suggests that the ban has been made permanent based on past baiting/insulting/abusive postings. It won't matter - I am sure if Porsch1909 wants to post again a new user will appear and post.

Didn't see that bit. There was 'none' in the reason box last time I looked so I guess things evolved whilst I was getting my beauty sleep.

Interesting, because regardless of what was deleted in this thread, if you check out his "last posts" there is nothing there that I would consider bad in terms of baiting etc. And for what is there, I have certainly seen members post much worse without any comeback. Many of his posts were on topic.

Looks like Ace1 had a bad day and decided to get freaky with the ban hammer. Again.

I agree it would be a complete waste if time. No amount of beauty sleep could make that face look better, it's beyond redemption.

GJ banned him first for 1 month - Ace then extended the ban to forever - which is longer than a life term in prison

What about LOB? I thought LOB was someone else after LOB and before Sean Connery.

Re: Another swiss hating rant...

It's not a Swiss issue again, it's a life issue. My sister in the UK is in a similar "place". Bankrupt, evicted... waiting for the police to turf her out on the street as she is now basically squatting. She was allocated a flat last month then the day before she was due to move was told it has been given to immigrants. Same path with depression, panic attacks & other health issues. Can't get out of the vicious circle.
I understand the need to rant.

The two years of taking morphine for cronic pain by doctors ordes is hardly an addiction disorder! All the time while searching for work my mental health was perfectly sound! And I was not on any kind of medication! Simply not given a chance because employers are afraid my back will go again. Simple as that!
Not that simple.

Chronic pain itself is one of the leading causes of depression - or rather specifically in those with chronic pain. This is well documented. I assume that you have seen a pain specialist rather than back/bone specialist?

One of the biggest problems with chronic pain is that most people don't understand what it really means and really think that you are being lazy.

Not easy to deal with and doing so alone... well just that much harder.

I hope that you are able to find a way forward. Good luck.

The ban is permanent!

Granted his comments are sometimes completely unconstructive, but so are many others'. I haven't seen the comment, yet I doubt it was worth a permaban.
