going on leave
« on: May 15, 2018, 12:08:46 PM »
Acid reflux got a bit worst lately. My doctors are seriously concerned & are going to observe me for the next 2 months to see it will go away anytime soon while they try to wean me off the daily meds. If things fail to improve after the 2-month mark, surgery might have to be considered (yet it's something my family is very against.) As such, I will be taking a step off the forum to dedicate my focus back to recuperating at home. No job hunting for now. No more staying past 12 am for the sake of accommodating everyone else's time zones on the forum (& yes, I will openly admit that I am guilty of being far too generous to the point of neglecting my sleep for the sake of the forum, especially during the initial 4-5+ months after leaving the flithy "transgender" pasture. It was deeply traumatic.)

I will hover by the forum every now & then to read posts & attend to prayer requests, but other than that I will not actively participate in too much discussion as I what I can before. (To Carleen & all the lovely ladies who run the "Good Morning" thread: I'm afraid you all won't have another sister to chime in with a loudspeaker & confetti to drmatically proclaim the dawn of each new day. For the time being.) In the meantime, prayers for me & my family will be greatly appreciated. (& I pray that my Spiritual Director won't be mad at me in the event I cannot be present at Sunday Mass.)

On a final note: Please be aware that while I will be packing up my (virtual) stuff to leave the forum soon, know that I treat you all as my dear siblings in Christ & all of you will be in my poor prayers. (Won't be able to remember all, but I will try my best :) )

May God bless you all, & please remember to keep crusading for the salvation of souls everywhere.

In Cordibus Jesu et Mariae,

Servus...just this ... :grouphug: you know honey, I know, God knows. We just do what we can. For now, this isn't it. Love you. CarleenD.
To board the struggle bus: no whining, board with a smile, a fake one will be found out and put off at next stop, no maps, no directions, going only one way, one destination. Follow all rules and you will arrive. Drop off at pearly gate. Bring nothing.
