Definitely best wishes, Ash, but I'd strongly urge you to get a second opinion..........

I'm considering giving my original books to my brother to hold, along with all my home brew, notes and print outs, rather than just dumping the paperwork.

As for the rest of the books I've bought over the years, I will just let them go, it's what I feel comfortable doing, it's almost like a relief.


You're considering the items linked to authentic memories, your original books & notes, to be less than evil. It's the later purchases which are problematic. So then it isn't necessarily childhood memories themselves that are bad, but the repeated re-creation of them?

I think that's a fair call, and it's my seeking to hunt down and read material that's taking me back to a bad time which is affecting my health etc.
I do feel that if I remove the material and stop looking to get more, I'll stop looking to hide in a world I created years ago that was there as a protection if you like.

At the risk of sounding like I am making wide-sweeping assumptions, I am going to suggest we tread carefully here with our comments, especially if we are making comments about what he should do with his collection.  While I have little clue about who ashmire13 is or who his counselor is, my guess is that they have the best plan in place for whatever is going on.

The great thing about everything that's been said is that we care and want the best for him.  We all go through tough times, and it when life gets tough that you often find out who your real friends are.  This is indeed an amazing and wonderful community.   8)


Truth is worth finding and life is too short to work for money.

Thank you all again. I've listed the items for now in the Classifieds, it's not much, it's not rare, but it'd be good if it went to a good home, not just shifted on eBay, which tbh, I don't want to do.
I might even list it on rpgmarketplace and let it run, as I know that's a decent selling site :)

It's not about the money I'd get for any of this, but just moving it on and to somewhere it'd be useful or appreciated

Hi Ashmire,
Wishing you all the best ... I can empathize with your plight. The "nostalgic" qualities can be quite "intoxicating" to say the least, but at least you are weighing your options, so the choices you make to cope with this predicament are YOURS and no one else's.
Take care - Paul
