Goodbye, forever or for now?

I just wanted to say goodbye to the friends I've made here, thanks for being you, and good luck on your individual journeys. 

Some people know how to find me outwith the site, and know I'm happy to help however I can. 

Good luck and take care!



I have no medical training, everything I post is an opinion or educated guess. It is not medical advice.

What’s this?

I can’t believe what I’ve just read. You are the most constant helpful person on this site. 
You have helped countless people on this scary journey. We know your knowledge has been derived from experience, study and asking pertinent questions. You’ve never said you were medically trained....just someone who has lots of personal experience. I cannot believe that is a reason for you to leave.

This site is for support....and that is all you have ever done! 
I can’t imagine you not being there to respond and help relieve the anxiety we have all felt or are feeling right now....

somI hope it’s not Goodbye

Fear of the unknown is the worst thing. Once we know what we're facing, we find the strength to deal with it.

I and many others here will hope it is 'for now'  

Not only because of the cancer related support you have given for many years but the Gardening and Baking stuff as well.

- Take care, G n' J

Hi Lass

As you probably know I'm just back after taking a break from the community for a while.  I have no idea as to what has brought you to this decision, but I do know that you have been a friend to many on here and I would suggest that you perhaps take a little break, think things over, and come back to us soon.

I had a break because I needed to focus on my husband's health, and now being less stressed I felt it was time to come back.  I don't always agree with some of Admin's decisions but Macmillan has rules and Admin do their best to keep us in line with them.  All the time I was away from the Community Admin regularly kept in touch with me to ask if I needed any support, which made me feel appreciated.

Take care Lass, you will be missed.

You are the best kind of human being and we are lucky to know you.
