I need to leave folks

Posted by linkadge on May 16, 2005, at 21:12:45

I've reached the point that I am no longer being supportive on this site, and thats when I know I need to leave.

Dreaming about what might be is eating me up inside. These options are not available to me.
It is no use to hope in what will never be.

I wish the best for all of you.

Maybe one day, when the wind decides to blow my way, I'll be back.

Hi Linkadge,

I know that "you've gotta do what you've gotta do," but we will miss your interesting posts. I think you are supportive and you have a tremendous amount of knowledge to offer us. If you decide to return, we'll be delighted to see you!

S.

Linkage,
You are allowed to just take support, you know. :)

I know you've been a source of support and information for some time now. There's no keeping score here, and if you need to just be on the receiving end of support for awhile, that's perfectly okay.

Take care,
gg

 

be gentle on yourself.

Link, I wish you wouldn't leave. You sound so much better. I was hoping to hear positive things about your med withdrawal. Keep in touch and don't stay away too long. Send some of us your E-mail or keep your Babble on okay? Fondly, Phillipa

Linkadge,

I am sorry that you feel you need to leave. I, too, echo what gardenergirl said. You have always been a tremendous source of information here, and your knowledge, insights and support will be missed by many. I have learned much by reading your posts, as I am sure many others have. You do what you have to do, but don't leave because you feel you are not being, or are not up to being, supportive. You probably don't even realize sometimes how much providing information or sharing your experience can help another.

Take very good care of yourself, and know that if you leave you will be sorely missed.

All the best to you,

Tamara

Linkadge,
listen to me...we are all together on this, I just started coming to this site recently, and already I have had some of my questions answered. We need to fight this, we need to get control of our lives once again, these doctors think that what they are doing is helping us, when in reality, they just want to make a name for themselves. The drug industry is making millions, BILLIONS, from us...we can't let them do this any longer...fight it, you will succeed...i really appreciate your concerns and words. Please dont stop.

Hi Link,

Why not just take a 'babble break'??? You don't need to leave permanently. We would all miss you- you are a valued babble member :-)

Kind regards,
Ed.

PS. Don't turn your babblemail off- we might want to contact you!

Dear Linkadge

If you feel you must leave then we can't stop you. But you have helped me a great deal. I love that story you wrote.

Sometimes we can be supportive when we feel well, others times we are holding out our arms for someone to throw us life perserver (did I spell the correctly?).

I do hope you will stay, but if you do leave, please drop in and say "hi".

Hugs,
Maxime

Hey you've got to do what's best for you and I respect that. But I think it evident from these replies that you do a lot of good here. I enjoy reading your posts. You got a natural way with words too, some of your decriptions remind me of stuff by Kerouac or Hunter Thompson.

I always look for your posts right away when I visit this site, your situation just seems so similair to mine on so many levels, your posts are thoughtful and the substance of your problems are something I almost always relate to.. I have a feeling you'll be back, i look forward to that...

I think that is a bad idea. We all have something in common here, trying to get relief, and though we are all different and some are more severe than others, we can be here for one another. There will always be the always upbeat kind like Ed, the lucky guy I envy that only has to take fish oil. And he is very supportive and open minded. Never give up hope kid. Where there is breathe, there is hope, and I still believe in miracles.

Linkadge,

Please stay and keep contributing! Maybe you should put anti-addiction limits on your reading and posting. Don't close the door on the rest of us even if you need another forum to dream on.

Yours,

Psychosage - A N

Link-
There are no pre-requisites posted for this site that say you have to be consistently supportive to be of any value! We are all here for each other - we support when we can, and ask for support when we need it. From reading your past posts I kno wyou've been through horrible times - best not to isolate yourself. We are here for you even if you feel you can't be here for us. Don't go!
Love
Jerry

Linkadge,

If by any chance you are still lurking and just not posting, please come back. You don't have to support, just be around. Let us know how you are. I miss you.
