Hello ATS.

I'm TheVyking. For the past year I have believed myself to be a lurker, I have tried to make accounts, but couldn't presuming this was a bug I stopped trying.

Tonight at 2am or 9pm Server time I found emails from ATS from a year ago saying I had requested a password change, panicked I check all of the ATS email (6) And found that I had an account. I managed to log on.

It turns out I have indeed had an account for over a year now (1 year and 1 months to be precise).

If you're wondering why I'm telling you this (which I'm sure you are) I'm telling you this becuase this is an example of what can happen when your suffering heavy stress and depression. I looked through posts I had made and cannot remember posting on here, I remember very few things from the past year, I don't remember why I made an account but gather it has something that do with the Fukushima Incident last year (See my posts from 2011 as my proof) I was reading through the posts with memory in terror that someone has had control of my msn for a year, and realised that thevyking is my name, so why would a hacker make an account with my own nickname, on a website that I lurk, and with my own email account.

I'm not sure why I'm telling you this, I think it's becuase I honestly dont think I've been more scared then when reading that over the past year I've lost far more memory then I thought I had.

I like to think this may pose as an example of what depression can do, I have nearly no memory of the past year at all. and I hope no one else experiences anything like I do.

Anyway, all the darkness aside.

I'm TheVyking. I've been along time member, even though I thought I was a lurker
I'm relatively creative and my posts may seem dramatic, I don't mean them to be, I just get carried away explaining myself.

and as for the above monologue, Some may percieve it as a cry for attention, it isn't that at all, I just feel comfortable here To be honest.

I'm intersted in anything at all, and I hope to have a great time here.

This has probably been one of the strangest most off topic introduction threads ever but that is an example of how my mind works it's like peeing into the breeze, you never know where it's gonna go next.

... but thanks for reading if you did!

Depression and deep anxiety can interfere with short term memory, so that we do things we don't remember.

However, taking Ambien can also interfere with short term memory and cause you to do things you have absolutely no memory of.

Whatever your history was, I hope that you're all better now....And welcome!

Welcome to ATS....a very nice and open intro. I'm glad you've joined the Family.....

I was a long time lurker also. It was the Fukushima crisis that finally drew me to make an account. Almost all of my first 500 or so posts were all in the Japan Forum. It was very stressful posting at the time, so I understand.

I look forward to your many forums. You'll meet many fine people here.

You are not alone.
I forget what I post almost every night.
Kind of like waking up the next morning with something like coyote ugly and you want to chew your arm off.

We really need to have a longer period of time to edit posts.
At least a day or two.

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many rides, with that said...
Here's a few thoughts before getting onto any one of the 1000's of topical rides at Above Top Secret, also known as ATS, the world's largest Civil & Unique Discussion Community.

*** Please be at least this tall to get on any of the rides, (Johnny stretches his arm outward), and act like an 'civil' adult. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one of your friendly neighborhood Mods!

*** Please remember that some members are very passionate and vocal depending on what ride you're on. Before getting on a ride, you should be mentally fit, emotionally stable and have a strong stomach for theories, conjecture, research and evidence presented that may be contrary to your own.

*** Please be "open-minded" enough to understand that sometimes the ride isn't always what you might think or expect. At times, you may learn something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride, this is a natural and normal phenomena.

*** Please note that at times the ride gets overly-heated and "it's strongly suggested" to get off the ride to regroup one's thoughts before continuing. This will also help guarantee that the ride will move forward without getting derailed or explode into a fiery trashbin.

*** Please have fun! Be aware if you act in an uncivil-like manner, use profanity, troll, intentionally spread a hoax and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is for your safety, & also for those both young and old on the ride with you.

So buckle up, keep your arms within the ride's comfort zone, have fun and "Deny Ignorance"...!

Welcome to ATS!

I wish you will find some enlightening information here and be able to stand strong in the future. As for myself, you will find me mostly in the paranormal/prophecy forum since I take interest in these matters and things are happening.. Also, I practice Falun Dafa Qi Gong and try to become a better person every day by cultivating my mind and body. As I see it that is the only way out for mankind, to become better people and treat others and our world with compassion.

I am an engineering physicist too, although my interest for such matters have decreased lately... I know Buddha Sakyamuni said that this world is an illusion and I really agree with him.

/Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance is good, Falun Dafa is good.
