Life after stardom?

Since MH removed one of my stars I have experienced sleepless nights and possible suicidal tendencies. Does anyone else other than me feel that MH should provide a special forum for people like me to cope with life after stardom?

Oh noes!  I could start a bunch of stupid posts, you could comment on them, then I can pick you as the best answerer.....

Otherwise, you may need rescue drugs.

There is no respect for a 110 year old. This is a travesty. At least now you have no reputation left to live up to!

Ricky,

I'm so sorry you are experiencing suicidal tendencies.  I believe they call that star imbalance caused from the powerful effects of the stars.  Didn't you read your star guide?  It clearly states depression is one of the side effects ESPECIALLY if you've had stars for years and one suddenly disappears.  Stardom is hard, it takes a toll on the body and the mind and leads to depression.  There are specialists out there that can help you through this.  It's good you're talking about it, that's the first step to recovery.

Please get some help,

Trinity

At 110 years old my stars are all I have left to live for. Why not just push me down a flight of stairs?

Sadly, while you might consider this a simple case of depression, I think it’s more likely a case of STD (Star Take Disease). You’ve clearly been running with the wrong crowd. Strains of this are rumored to be circulating in the Medhelp forums lately; you haven’t been hanging out it there, have you? If yes, this is probably mhSTD; and may require a brain biopsy to assess your common sense.

The prescribed Tx is brutal; 48 weeks of answering OCD posts with a straight face; and in case you’re wondering, sarcasm is forbidden during this treatment period. This tends to eliminate even the most virulent genotypes of STD; but alas, your lost stars may never return, and you may be relegated to a 3 star eternity.

The side effects include pronounced loss of back hair; and in some extreme cases, butt hair can be noticeably diminished as well. This may be an immediate cause of concern for your spouse (as evidenced by other members), but it should return to it’s normal length and luster if you successfully complete the assigned course of therapy.

We will, of course, pray for your rapid recovery; I wish you well in this.

Irreverently yours—

Bill

If the assignment to OCD answering doesn’t do the trick, then of course, the alternative *is* a toss down the stairs, Ricky; if you like, we can do that in advance…

My fourth star is such a tramp - it can never seem to stick around for more than a day or two.
I can't advise you on how to regain your star, but here are some suggestions for holding onto your existing stars:

1) Do not refer to Emily_MHModerator as "Auntie Em".

2) Do not make disparaging remarks about 'closed threads'.

Aren't you the dude with that dungeon down there? Not sure that would be a good ideal for you...... As for losing stars, me and Angel are getting use to it... It takes time but with the help of a good hepa-star-logist you will make it.

Now you know how Warren Beatty feels.  

And George Hamilton.  All he's got left is his tan after all his stars faded.

Some people plan really well for life after "stars" - perhaps you should consider opening a restaurant chain?  A good ole down home Louisiana flagship kinda deal?  

Or....maybe ... you could run for office.  Become Governor of Louisiana.  If Arnold Schwarzenegger can become Governor of California, anything's possible.  

Just don't give up hope.  There IS life after stars ... you just gotta think outta the box.

And if all else fails, if it will REALLY make you happy ... I'll push ya down the stairs.  We'll just have a party first and then end it with a push.  What are friends for, after all, eh?

As the tears of joy are running down my fat cheeks I want say thanks to all of my friends lining up to push me down the stairs.
Because of your support, I realize I just got caught up in Stardom and life is worth living after all. If any of you suffer from  STD (Star Take Disease) I will be there to push you down the stairs if needed.
This is the first time I have felt this loved in a long time. Thanks again, Ricky

Some words wisdom came from a dear friend of mine some time ago.  She said a good friend will help you move but a really good friend will help you move a body.  

Call me if you need any help with Ricky after the shove.

Ricky,

When you are tumbling down the stairs, arse over teakettle, just remember ... it's the ride, not the destination that counts! We're all pulling (or pushing?) for you.
