As many of you know, I recently posted a message of goodbye to my HW friends, logged off, and stayed away for several days (as was suggested “in lieu of my stated permanent departure” by many of you good folks). I also emailed Peter, who is a wonderful person (by the way) and provided insight to my original post. He graciously stated that he hoped I would find time to participate in the forums again and I have taken that to heart.
I do want to clarify, however, that I did not intentionally create disharmony among the members and tried to prevent further discord by not posting a great deal of explanation after the fact. I also wish you to know that I have never been asked to leave or been banned from the board at any time. I was also NOT the one emailing people with vehement negativity. I do not do that.
I found, however, that I could not leave without checking to see how you guys were doing. I was strangely drawn to find out if you were all OK. You have become a part of my life just as surely as if you were here with me.
As so many of us CP patients do, I became overwhelmed by the circumstances around me and responded rashly (as I can now see...since I am calmer and more relaxed). I made a mistake in leaving.
With all of that said, I want to again offer my support and my encouragement.
I also want to say a special thank you to those who gave support even when I was emotionally unable to reciprocate.
All my best to each of you.
