Sorry to disappear from here for times. Have not been doing so well physically, but maybe will be getting that taken care of some now. Finally saw a specialist, and am working on getting better, physically. It has been difficult, because when I am sick, I can not eat so well, so have been losing weight again, and that makes me sicker, I'm sure. The cycle continues. Have not been sleeping to good, and have not even been 'myself' mentally for few days. To much stress will sometime do that. I will be trying to reply to other posts here today, and thank you all who have responded to me. I do not know that I say that often enough, but thank you all, everyone who extends a hand of friendship or comfort to me. You all are appreciated, greatly.

Thank you also, everyone who reached out in kindness to my friend Andrei, who I rather pushed this site on. He is rather shut down and quite determined to not deal with any of this anymore, feeling it causes only more problems. I try to convince him that it is necessary to talk of this, or he will not ever heal, but he can be quite stubborn at times (I do swear, we are NOT related, although I wonder!) I do wish to thank all of you who extended yourselves as friends to him also. I am grateful that he met some very good, kind men here, and I hope he will remain in contact with you.

Thank you all, again. It is maybe money that this site needs to keep present and running. But it is the souls of the good men and women who come here that keep the site working. And there is no price that can be placed on you.

Leosha

Thank you for those kind words, and you're absolutely right.

It's good to see you back again, and look after that young man Andrei. You two could make a good double act.

Ditto to what Dave said.

And tell Andrei that I think he is a very brave young man and I hope he returns among us. :p

I'm sorry I haven't been able to help you much either, my brother. Been going through A LOT of garbage myself. But I'm glad you're here, even if it's a part-time thing.

I need you here, Leo. Now more than ever, good people have to stick together. That includes your friend, Andrei, by the way.

Tell him I understand, also, altho I wish he'd change his mind, and I'd be honored to have him keep in touch. Given him my e-mail and phone number, and tell him he's welcome to contact me anytime. That does double for you, bro.

Get better or I'll come over there and kick you in the @$$! \:D That's an order!

Peace and love,

Scot \:D

Leosha,

Welcome back. I miss your cheerfulness while you are gone, but would much rather you take care of yourself. It sounds like you are doing that. Thank-you.

And thank you for taking care of Andrei. He is at a time he needs yours and our support. Withdrawing and trying to shut down to 'forget' this all happened is a method, I know personally, that doesn't work.

If there is anyway that I can be of assistance to either of you, please let me know.

Take care, be healthy, and have some fun,
Bill

Sorry, just had to do that. Now that all the silliness is out of my system once and for all (?)...

It's good to hear from you again and to know that your are going to be healthy. You are a source of strength and hope for me and I'm sure for others, too. Thanks.

You're not related to Andrei?! Just kidding. You know that he is a strong man with a good heart. Whether he comes back here or not, he will find his way to healing. He will not let fear chase him into hiding from demons of the past. And if he does come back, you know we will welcome him.

Welcome back!

Joe

Joe, upon doing some research, I have discovered that the Russian word for 'Dude' is 'Mentally deficient annoying computer commercial guy'. I swear it is!

Ha. Comma Ha. Comma Ha.

I think we've created a monster here. :p \:D .

Leo, have you ever thought about going on the stand-up comedy circuit?

Don't. \:D

Seriously, you've made me laugh harder in the past couple of days than I have in a loooooong time. Keep it up.

Peace and love,

Scot
