The next few posts will require a password, this is where you get it

On Sunday (09/04/10) afternoon I will begin to publish a series of posts which will be password protected. It’s a very sensitive issue regarding recent developments in an ongoing dispute in my family. And it’s something I need feedback on.

So… if you leave a comment here, or email me using the address in my sidebar, I will send you the password.




About Gabriel...

...diagnosed with manic depression when I was nineteen, for the next 14-years I lived without treatment or a recovery plan. I've been homeless, one time I graduated college, I've won awards for reporting on Internet privacy issues, and a weekly humour column. In 2002 I finally hit bottom and found help. It's now 2022, and I have an 8-year old son, and a 12-year old son... I’m usually about six feet tall, and I'm pretty sure I screwed up my book deal. I mostly blog at

    i just started reading your blog, but i would be honored if you could include me in the password holders.

  2. nothingisalone says:

    i would as well. i’m obviously not smart enough to find you email in the sidebar>_<

  3. Gabriel... says:

    That’s okay, enough people have missed it that I really should make it less… camouflaged. It’s just under the photo at the top of my sidebar. Thanks to you both, tee and ‘nothingisalone’ for being willing to take part.

  4. Melodika says:

    I too would appreciate the password, if you wouldn’t mind letting me have it – I find your blog to be excellent and would be happy to provide feedback if needed, even though I generally only lurk in places such as these due to shyness!

    Hey mate. Voyeurism ahoy I guess 😛

  6. schpaksie says:

    Hey Gabriel, the password would be much appreciated if you don’t mind =]

    Sad to hear things aren’t going so well with the family though =/

    Hi there Gabriel. I’d like the password too, if you are okay giving it to me.

    I don’t know that it’s any consolation, but I think everybody has family members who they wish didn’t exist, for various reasons. Family: can’t live with ’em, can’t kill ’em.

    Sorry to hear things aren’t going particularly well.

    I don’t comment much, but I am still reading. Would like to read if you wish me to.

  9. Addie says:

    Hi Gabriel,

    I have only commented once but have been reading for about a year. If you feel comfortable doing so, I would like to receive the password as well.

  10. Skylark says:

    Hi Gabriel, me too.

  11. Gabriel... says:

    Hi. I’ve sent out an email to everyone, please check your spam filters if you haven’t received it… if anyone else wants it just leave a note, or send an email.

  12. Rhiannon says:

    Hello, I would like the password please ^_^. Thanks again for your posts, they really do help me in my own recovery.

  13. Hella Stella says:

    Me please…

  14. auralay says:

    Dear Gabriel- I finally have the cursed internets again and I dearly miss reading your blog.
    All the best, Auralay

  15. Finola says:

    I would love to have the password if you don’t mind. I love your writing.

  16. I’d like the password too, please. I’ll do my best to give some honest feedback since that seems to be what you’re after.

  17. detached99 says:

    Me too, please!

  18. Jenny says:

    I have quietly read your site for a few years now. I love reading your posts you put yourself heart and soul out there. I would love to read further. Peace.

  19. Gabriel... says:

    I think everyone who posted here so far should have the password… if not, check your spam filter or send me an email and I’ll get it to you. At the moment the only people I’m trying to prevent from reading these posts are my mother and my girlfriend — both of whom, stupidly on my part, have this address.

    It’s very likely, in the next few weeks, I’ll ‘un-protect’ these posts — I keep referring to “these” posts, or a “series” of posts when I’ve only written one so far… I’m trying to get everything into context, but that just adds 2000 words to a 1000 word post. So, if I can edit it back under 2000 words, the next one should be up tomorrow.

  20. Karen says:

    How about lots of hugs in exchange for a password? 😉

  21. Gabriel... says:

    Definitely… thanks Karen.

  22. doreen174 says:

    i would love to read more of your blogs especially about your diabetes……………i have diabetes and MS…….could you please send me a password?

    takecare, doreen

  23. Gabriel... says:

    The next protected post is up… I just realized, or remembered, that there’s an email subscription thing in my sidebar. If you click on the button everything I publish will be sent to you automatically as an email. All WordPress blogs have it, and it’s a good way to not get in trouble at work for illicit surfing. You can unsubscribe very easily.

  24. Jenny says:

    Hi, ive following your blog for a couple of months now… may i please have that password 🙂

  25. Melanie says:

    Hey there,
    If you’re interested in an old friend’s opinion then password me baby!
    Take care.

  26. Robin says:

    Can I have the password?

  27. Gabriel... says:

    Hello. There’s a new post up that is password protected. It’s the same password I’ve given everyone who has asked for it… if I’ve forgotten anyone, just email me at the address at the top right of the page. Thanks to everyone for taking part.

  28. detached99 says:

    Hi Gabriel

    I had to reformat and have lost the password along the way :-S Could you resend it please?

  29. Wendy S. says:

    I just subscribed to your blog over email yesterday and found myself breathing a big sigh of relief that you expressed what so many of us who have bipolar disorder etc…are going through. I would really like to read all of your posts, so if you would send me a password to read them, I’d be honored.
    Thank you Gabriel

  30. Gabriel... says:

    Hi again… everyone who has sent me an email or left a message here should have the password now. Thanks again for taking part.

    FYI: There’s a button in the sidebar so people can subscribe via email, the entire post — along with photos — gets sent directly to your email service. It’s a great way to keep the boss from knowing you’re doing something more important. The button is right under the comments section.

    Thanks, Wendy S., for saying that.
