I started Saturday as the most hugged blogger of 2010 and ended the day as the blogger most in need of hugs 2011.

This is a story of support during depression with a little WoW twist thrown in.

As you may be aware I spoke a lot about depression, mine and my family’s back in Movember. I mentioned then that it can be a long hard journey and it is.

Saturday afternoon I was alerted by the police to my ex-wife’s latest suicide intentions.

Don’t talk

To be honest this is a rule for all BGs you intend to lose.

If you talk to your team mates, you might form a temporary bond, become more than just a collection of individuals with disparate goals.

Worse yet, you may be breaking the ice and encouraging them to speak out when it’s important.

Do your best to discourage communication!

Don’t suggest a strategy

Whatever you do, don’t suggest a strategy, not even an intentionally fail strategy. If you do you may fail in your objective and by complete accident forge the group into a coordinated group of winners (more…)
