    Re: High praise for Hunter

    This is still no excuse for his actions, but does shed some light on the inner turmoil he has been dealing with. My heart goes out to him and his partner. I hope this decision can help him move forward stronger than ever.

    Maddie has previously written on IG about the fact that she is going through IVF because she has a rare condition causing early menopause, this must inevitably have been a really tough thing for them to both go through and explains the mental health challenges for Lachie.

    Yeah spot on Scraggers, no excuse for what he did but bloody hell what a shitty situation. 100+ injections is crazy. My wife and I went down this path with a happy ending twice and it was a still pretty terrible to go through.

    Re: High praise for Hunter

    Unless you’ve been through this you can’t understand the heartbreak. It’s completely changed the story for me regarding Lachie. Short of posting sensitive information here I can say it’s the most gut wrenching and emotionally draining experience I’ve had, and to put that into context I lost a parent to dementia recently and all the years of struggle that go with that I’d put multiple failed cycles of IVF on a par. Not many would truly understand what’s involved emotionally and physically especially for the women involved, it takes an incredible toll.
    Hope they’re getting all the support they need.

    I hope things look up soon for you GG. I know what it's like to lose a parent and I've done a lot of work with dementia sufferers and have seen the suffering and sadness it causes.

    I hope things improve for you soon.

    Cheers Bad. Thanks for that. Doing well... It's like a test match. All facets are tested! IVF is an incredible roller coaster of emotion. Each phase whittles away at the viable candidates over the length of the cycle, it's a real test of one's inner mettle and resilience, until finally with a hole in your wallet, and a little in your collective hearts for some you walk away empty handed.
    Then, you pick yourself up, repeat it again filled with hope and wonder and the dream of what might be. Unfortunately for many the dream doesn't realise, however with the right support you can certainly pick yourself up and move on it just takes time.
    Certainly can empathise with Lachie. You never really know what's going on for people that's for sure. Football really isn't that important after all... *ducks and leaves quickly*

    Cheers TD. Yes it's a terrible disease you wouldn't wish it on your worst enemy. Anyone involved in supporting it is amazing in my book!

    Looking after people is what I was born to do. I didn't find my way into caring professions until my mid 30s (I as working in admin until then) but as soon as I did I knew it was what I really wanted to do.

    It's an honour to be allowed to do it.
