Until we meet again...

I'm going to take a break from the Oni community.  I have to deal with a serious illness in the family and it's going to take much of my time.  Sadly, the prognosis is not good, it will not likely end well.  I wish that was not the case, but, real life can be very painful and bring much sorrow.

Everyone, take care.

I'm truly sorry that you're in a situation like this, and I understand and appreciate that you want to concentrate fully on the well-being of your family.
I sincerely hope that everything will turn out for the better.

Re: Until we meet again...

sad  So sorry to hear it, Ed.  Life throws some really unfair stuff at us sometimes.  Try to stay upbeat as far as it's reasonable, because people in caregiver situations often get caught up in negative thinking and that's not good for anyone.

Hopefully you'll still check the forum once in a while.  In any case, we'll certainly let you know when anything major happens.


byproducts are fine, but where's the beef?

Ed,

Sorry to hear. We all hope for the best but sometimes life throws us at these things and we can't do anything about it.

Take care and stay safe and healthy.

Re: Until we meet again...

+1 to what Iritscen said. I can't really comment on serious illnesses from personal experience, but negative thinking is something I know a lot about. When you think of the meaning of life -- and it's stuff like that that really makes you think about it -- it's as if we were all part of a huge 7-billion family, dysfunctional and tragic as hell. Who's cursed, and who's blessed -- the one to whom nothing ever happens, or the one whose life is marked with cruel fate? In great wisdom lies great sadness -- and vice-versa. Of course I don't wish you to learn life the hard way this time, but when (and if) you can't manage an upbeat attitude any more, you can always fall back to some good old-fashioned stoicism. Either that, or you can picture yourself as an "ordinary hero" -- the proverbial knight, rather than the widow or orphan. It's easier to think positive if you're all righteousness.

That's more than enough out of me, probably. I usually feel "agonizingly insensitive" at times like that, but I'm still glad I came and saw. Take care, Ed, and never say never.

EDIT: Apparently I ended up here because "Introductions" is invisible to guests. If I hadn't been confused by my bump in Introductions, I wouldn't have come here. Fate.

Re: Until we meet again...

Thank you for your kind words and support.

It's really a difficult time for me, my mother has cancer, it is too late for any type of treatment.  So the best I can do is keep her comfortable and support her as much as possible.
