This is the only way I can message you as you don't have an email listed on your profile.

I am looking into working from home and stumbled across a thread from last year regarding the topic. You were asking the OP what their background was and that you worked IT and worked from home. My current condition is not affording me to go back to work at the moment. And I do not know how long I will be in this state. (Primarily physical afflictions) My STD is about to end and I am waiting to see if LTD will cover me.

I work in a technical field as well, so hoping to maybe get some insight on how I can transfer my knowledge to a work from home type of job..... if possible.

Would you mind emailing me so I can pick your brain?

Hi, Hoagie:

I've decided to "retire" (at least, for now) from this forum, but Girlie was nice enough to e-mail me and let me know you wanted to contact me. I sent you an e-mail.

Thanks,
The Dude

Oh no, Dude! I have been wondering where you have gone. I am really sorry to hear that you aren't going to be around here any more. You have such an amazing knowledge on this and an excellent resource. You always went above and beyond in helping others.

I am very sorry to hear this and truly wishing you the best!

Take care! Best wishes!

Ps Girlie, can you tell Dude I posted here for him!?!

Dude,

That makes me sad. I hope you come back, even if it's less frequently. I had been missing you, too, and wondered where you were. cry

Girlie: Thanks again for letting me know about the replies.

Girlie, 1000Daisies, and WalkingbyFaith: I greatly appreciate the compliments. Thank you very much. I've been having a rough time, lately, and need to direct some of my attention inward. Everyone here can relate, I know. Hopefully, at some point, I'll feel better and reappear. Again, I sincerely appreciate the kind words. It means a lot to know I may have had a positive impact on folks - even if it was only to make them laugh. I wish healing, health, happiness, and prosperity to all.

Dude,
Always enjoyed reading your post been lurking for yrs til I had enough and had to post to try to get help. I do understand and I pray for your health to get you to a better place. Look forward to hearing from you soon take your break and take care of you we love you and you can and will get better. I wish I had a quick fix for you but I do not. Thank you for sharing all you have shared with us and see you soon....... till then rest, detox, and never forget the simple things that help such as garlic, honey, lauricidin, horseradish, I am getting a lot better with them I am self treating I am retired vet can not work due to Lyme. But soon I hope my life will be returned to me. I also doing one 100 doxy daily just because a microbiologist says any more puts in cyst form. He healed just on garlic and 100 mg of doxy had Lyme 10yrs and he did thre days pills and one off then three and one I am doing it and now I can walk better no more dizziness and all my muscle tightness has gone and my tmz is gone too. Been doing for two months so far been sick since 2011. I have Lyme Bart and baby and my breathing is great no sweats at night any more etc. the herxing was terrible at first with garlic and doxy only, then it lifted and I used radishes to detox it works great. But my methods is crazy different than the norm but it is getting me some life again so far. Till I see your post I wish you the best sorry I got long I just want u to remember the natural things can help a lot.

Thank you very much, Donjr. I'm grateful for your heartfelt words and for your improvement. Though not retired, I'm a Veteran, too. (1985-89) So, thank you for your service and sacrifice. I send you lots of love and healing wishes, in return.

Thank you, k07, for your kind wishes, too. I hope your absence has been because you're out living your life, rather than anything else. My best to you and yours.

Dude Abides,
I just found your forum and your posts, ..and now you are leaving!!!Hope it is temporary. Can you e-mail me, mine is on my profile.
Anyway, hope you got my reply to your reply to Living for Hope yesterday, here it was:

I am usually on the PC forum but your name intrigued me so I came here. Just wanted to advise you to take that advice from the Dude Abides, it is one of the most powerful, meaningful, and hopeful messages that I have seen on this or other forums. I will take it to heart and hopefully you will too!

Hope you are feeling better soon, just keep that faith that you will.
Personal thank you to the Dude abides

Wings: You're very kind, sir. Thank you for the kind words. I sent you an e-mail and look forward to hearing from you.

sandyfeet, WalkingbyFaith, and ChickenArise: Honestly, I'm very humbled by all the feedback. As I mentioned to Girlie, via e-mail, I didn't think many people would notice my absence. I figured I'd sorta "fade out" quietly and without much attention. I often feel that others have much more to contribute than I do. When Pirouette left the forum, for example, that was significant. Thankfully, her thousands and thousands of posts remain for the benefit of others. I like to bring humor, but lately, my well is dry.

All forum members -- whether Lyme Disease, Prostate Cancer, Ulcerative Colitis, or the other many forums -- you're all remarkable people to give so much of yourselves. Your gifts of your time, attention, encouragement, compassion, and your heart make a difference in the lives of others in ways that will likely never be fully understood. And, those gifts are archived here to help countless others in the future.

I love you all, wish you God's blessings, and hope to return in the near future.

The Dude

Hi The Dude,

I agree with everyone else that you make this forum very special indeed! You bring so much information that is extremely helpful to everyone (perhaps you don't realize what an asset you are here). And because of you I now have Dr. Rawls book! smile

Take the time you need for yourself and when you are ready I hope you return!

12 years well ~ used Dr. Jernigan's protocol from his book about Biological Medicine (used Borrelogen, Microbojen and Neuro-Antitox).

I still detox even though healed and drink Green Vibrance. I come back to help others for others helped me when I was sick. Pay it forward! smile

I had to say thank you and goodbye, Dude. You were there for me during a really low point and the first person to "sing" me happy birthday. Such a small gesture really made my day, and I'm still amazed that you found a way to make me smile. I am sorry to hear that you are going through a rough time, but of course support you in your decision to take a step back and focus on you, especially with all you have given to this board. Please don't hesitate to lean on us, we are always here for you and wish you well. Thank you for your countless contributions!

Girlie, please see that Dude gets our messages. Thank you!

I saw the "The Dude Abides" today! Sorta...?

I was at the store, and some teen kid walks by me with a "The Dude Abides" tshirt on. I stopped in my tracks, and I was like - WTH? Seemed a little young to be our "Dude" here and a little self confident to be wearing his own screenname... smile

So, clearly, I thus learned that "The Dude Abides" was in reference to something in pop culture. But what?? What could it be?? So, google helped me solve the mystery.

This is the story of how I learned that Dude's screenname is in reference to the Big Lebowski movie (which I haven't ever seen). Perhaps I'm the only clueless person in the world who hasn't seen that movie!

See, Dude, you affect us in ways you could have never foreseen. I may now add this movie to my list! LOL

smile

TAKE CARE, DUDE! You clearly mean the world to many of us here!
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, but doing great now!
Kid#2: Still sick now despite being treated for years but doing better (not well yet).
Kid#3: Generally good but relapsing off/on.
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids)-not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue and yeast issues (heart/kidney issues resolved)
Treating with herbals now.

Thanks for bumping, 1000Daisies.

Indeed, you found the secret to my screen name! The film "The Big Lebowski" is one of my favorites.

The Dude Abides
/youtu.be/sYsw0KVRjCM?t=15s

While a comedy, there's a lot more to the movie. It even spawned an annual event called Lebowski Fest.

/lebowskifest.com
/en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lebowski_Fest

There's also a religion/philosophy/lifestyle called "Dudeism."

/dudeism.com
/en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dudeism

Also...

"Two species of African spider are named after the film and main character: Anelosimus biglebowski and Anelosimus dude, both described in 2006. Additionally, an extinct Permian conifer genus is named after the film in honor of its creators. The first species described within this genus in 2007 is based on 270-million-year-old plant fossils from Texas, and is called Lebowskia grandifolia."

Keep abiding!

The Dude

Thank you, gerdy. I sincerely appreciate the kind compliments. We all help each other.

By the way, the movie "The Big Lebowski" is a dark comedy with adult themes and lots of cursing. The F-word, for example, is used either 260 times or 292 times, depending on which source you believe. Plus, that's hardly the only curse word used in the movie. The word "Dude" is used 161 times, in case you're ever on a game show and are asked that question. smile

don't know that I like the F word that much.

I do like Jeff Bridges acting, generally, like in "Seabiscuit".

Indeed, some people are put-off by all the F-bombs. Despite the language, I still find it very, very funny. There are a lot of great actors in it, too.

I'm a Jeff Bridges fan, too. I think he's a great actor. Very versatile. I really liked his Dad, also. But, mostly, when I think of Lloyd Bridges, I think of him in the 1980 movie "Airplane." I recently found a YouTube channel with all of Lloyd's old "Sea Hunt" episodes.
