Detecting as aid to recovery

Post  longbob on Fri May 17, 2013 12:22 pm

I suffer from major depression, which is very debilitating and could lead to very bad and final outcomes. Recommendations for lessening symptoms and providing some non-chemical help are to find hobbies or activities that will distract.
Soooooo - I have me a GPX 500 detector thingy and lottsa books and maps, and although I have yet to set foot in the field have found the research and reading to be totally absorbing. It's like the Da Vinci Code trying to work out a good spot to try. Already I find myself more able to be active and interested in things, and can't wait to set foot out there. I am aware that I may not find anything at all, but it seems I have given myself a reasonable chance with the detector I have chosen, and my target area, Castlemaine.
So just wanted to say that this hobby has more rewards in it for me than the metal I might find. It has diminished a very serious problem that has plagued me for most of my life. When you next pick up your detector, be aware that these machines have probably saved someone's life. Very Happy

Q31 to the forum longbob.

It's great that this hobby/pastime may help solve your little problem. You always find something when you're swinging out there, but a lot of the time it unfortunately isn't gold, but it's a numbers game and the more you do it, eventually you will find something. Maybe you might have beginners' luck???

Similar to you, I have a little problem that swinging the detector allows me to forget for just a little while and come to peace with he world and calms my nerves - it's called a WIFE. Q30 sweetheart, I'll get back to the housework now...

Q31 to the forum longbob
It is a great hobby for forgetting your woes and worries..
Doesn't matter if you find gold or not ( a bit of gold is nice though ) just being out there in the fresh air and bush is just what the doctor ordered... Smile
And when you make great friendships along the way.. Well that's a real bonus..
And you are sooooo right! It does pull you out of the hum drums..
Hope to see some pictures of your finds Q10 even if it isn't yellow
