The Absence

Post by ibelong2me » Sun Aug 24, 2008 5:45 am

Hello guys - I wanted to apologise for my 'disappearance' for some time.

I have had some problems offline which suddenly got worse and just was not coping too well. My father was diagnosed with cancer and I think I just shut down and was pretending everything was ok and yet not being able to communicate without getting worked up and upset.

But he is doing well in treatment and we are keeping positive and am feeling alot better in my mind about things...i think.

I hope you will have me back to the fold.

Welcome back. Sorry to hear about your dad, but i completely understand last October my dad was also diagnosed with cancer, but a year on he now has the all clear, so chin up and remember that there has been so much advancement in the treatment of cancer that it is no longer as negative as it once was. And it is really good to hear he is doing well.

Just think of all th JI news you have to catch up with :)

Hiya, Rose--we missed you, and are glad you've made your way back to us.
Y'know, this place has always had a motto--I've just never put it up anywhere: "It's not real life, it's Jason Isaacs". And I hope we're always here to provide a bit of escape when things get overwhelming.

It's a very jarring thing, dealing with a parent's serious illness--sort of knocks your whole world off its axis a bit and puts you in a different orbit. Lots to consider, lots to come to terms with.
Pop 'round whenever, girl--we're always happy to see you!

No worries, Rose. We've kept a chair warm for you, and there's hot cocoa on the stove.

Glad to have you back. Give our best to your dad!

Chin up Rose. From someone who knows. There are so many things they can do now that it's amazing. Keep a smile. It'll all come out OK.

Welcome back! If you need an ear, I'll gladly lend one. I was away too, but not for reasons like yours. Family is important. :)
