I don’t know Mew so I’m not taking anything away from him (and don’t mean to) when I focus my reply on Awor.
That Awor has left the forum before we have a treatment doesn’t mean that he didn’t spearhead significant progress for everyone here. I’ve said before but running this forum, creating the foundation and a number of projects and pieces of work that people aren’t aware of are a huge amount of work. That’s on top of his own life and job away from here. I should say that as well as all the work he did, Awor literally paid for the forum and website out of his own pocket.
There’s a limit to what we can expect a person to do, even if they suffer with this problem themselves.
It’s quite possible that if people had got on board with the projects, plans, etc that Awor had been trying to get in motion a decade ago that we’d be a lot further along, and also that he wouldn’t be so burnt out.
The only thing that stops us making progress is not pushing in the same direction, self defeatist attitudes, selfishness and the misplaced beliefs that someone else is doing all the work or that it’s possible to stumble across the solution in a health food shop. In some ways, they are the biggest obstacles we face.
