Hey J,

That sucks bout the amp man, maybe have a look at the fuse in the amp it could be just that which is blown, if not try find a knick knack shop (ya know those places that sell all sorts of odds and ends) I found myself a beaut Laney bass amp for €25 in one. could be worth a try.

Good luck

Thanks guys you don't know how much it means for me to know that you care. I don't feel so good right now, seems like I'll have to hang on without it for longer than I thought. I asked for money to send it to repair but my father is too busy and my mother said she would rather send me the violin from england than to pay to repair that bloody noise maker. Why would I want the fucking violin? I don't want the violin I want my bass. She's the one who likes the violin not me.

I know it might seem childish but she just doesn't understand. And then we come back to her wishes all over again. It's always about her never about me.

(Just venting again)

Dude thats crappy, I hope you can find some resolution for it, man if I could I would let you have my amp cause I hardly use it anymore and it is a waste to see it sittin there, although it is serving well as a shelf for my printer by my desk. hope you have a good turn soon, but keep on venting man its stops the build up of badness.

J - The loneliness and the anger are natural for us. It is not that you are going crazy or are unnatural. What may assist you in working through this is to locate someone to process these feelings with. They do not need to be a CSA survivor, nor do they need to be a therapist or any sort of professional, just willing to listen. They don't need to be able to solve anything
(if it could be solved we would all be further along with this than we are I think). Just to process it and not give it any more energy than necessary will be helpful. Find someone - call someone. Are you connected with any place of faith (church,synagogue,mosque,temple)? Oftentimes there are clergy there with whom you can talk. The healing process, while it is a choice on our part, takes time. A lot of time.

Alan is spot on, in the pocket, if you will, about this. Take your comment here, J, see how it reinforces your position of being alone. When in reality, I and others here know exactly what it means to finally be understood and finally feel cared for.

Thanks, I don't know what I'd do without you all and this site. I've been here for a long time and though I don't post much I know there are good people here and that I can always come back when things turn to go very badly. Thanks for real.

I went for a walk. It helped somewhat. I don't really have anyone to talk to here, I don't know much people so I end up venting here a lot. Sorry if it starts to get annoying and thanks again.

Hey J,

When I first saw this on the new topics, I saw guys giving advice about the amp, so I thought it was really all about the amp...well that or a fresh water fish...lol... It wasn't until I thought to ask WHO'S bass had died that I read the whole post. That's really a pile a crap, the whole thing, all the way from it dying to knowing your dad's response to your mom wanting to send your fiddle! Like Corey above, I get living abroad, lived in 6 countries other than my own, and feeling like a dope about 95% of the time and just having no real clue how to change any of it for the better. Main thing I wanted to say though, is really NO WORRIES about venting J...even if it's the same 5 words over and over again...do it and get that shit out of your system. It really does help. Like brother says, we really DO know what it means to be able to get it out and to feel like someone else cares. There's a unique thing about our shared experiences that has continually occurred to me, and it's that those experiences, the things you know that brought us all here, are so much deeper than things like age, nationality, race, background, economic status, marital status, orientation...all of it, are just surface details in comparison. So, yeah...we DO understand...for real, not just in some adult, trying to make you feel better way. Sorry, got off on to a bit of a rant there myself....

Here's one to the dead bass and/or it's amp!!!!

sono

Thanks sono, I do know now that it's fine to come here and talk to you all. I am grateful really it's not so lonely here, it's not just like as if it was me and my laptop scrolling a webpage. I thank a lot to you all, you make my day.

Thanks again,
J.
