Apologies and a prayer?


Well-known member
I've been kinda irritable the last few months and I want to apologize to anyone I've snapped at because of it (especially Yame). It's one of the reasons I haven't been posting much lately, I don't want to bleed on on the board if you know what I mean. I don't know when I may start posting regularly again since I'm not expecting things to improve for a few months. I want you all to know how much I appreciate the community here though.

Before I go, if anyone is willing to pray for my family it will be appreciated. My mother has been fighting cancer for years now and this summer it's gotten worse. The funeral will probably be in a few weeks. There is no chance of her getting better (and it's no excuse for my irritability for the last little bit). My dad died several years ago so it's good to know they'll be together again, I'm happy for them and sad for me.

Thanks everyone for being awesome and I'll be back when my head is back on straight.

Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The soul that rises with us, our life’s star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar.
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory, do we come
From God, who is our home:
Heaven lies about us in our infancy.
-William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

Oh Ariadne, how sad and awful. l hope things go the best they can under the circumstances. Take care of yourself, and yes, get out of jail free card as far as the forum goes.

Hugs and prayers from me, too. Don't stay away for fear of being a bit growly; you are ours and we care about you.

Dear Ariadne, I am very sorry to hear about your mum. Take care, be well and come back soon.

Ariadne, you don't have to apologize for anything at all. If we got into an argument here recently, I don't even remember what it was about. I'm used to debating opinions on forums and I don't ever take these arguments personally.

I'm so sorry about your mother :(

You must be going through a very hard time right now. All I can say is that you are always appreciated here, so whenever you are ready to "come back," we all love you and hold no grudges.

Best of luck to you and your family.

Thank you all. I honestly didn't expect that reaction. I think I can guarantee that I will come back I just need a little time.

Love you all.

You're facing the reality of being an orphan, so I think some irritability is understandable. I'm really sorry you have to deal with it and go through such a rough time. I'll be thinking of you, and come back when you're ready. We'll be here, waiting with zills on. :)
