Congratulations Kathryn. There are days when you will curse having self-excluded, days when you wonder if you could just go back and have them rip the paper up, days when you think you will go mad. Here’s the trick…these days will come and they will GO. My experience when going to my favourite casino to self-exclude was a very positive one. I did not feel judged in any way, and I felt like the staff there were supporting ME. So good on ‘ya, may today be your birthday as well – emerging from the dark shadows of a hell I wish you had never known.
