Taking some time off - November 26th 2011, 05:40 PM

Hey everyone,

After some careful thought, and looking at how much I've been contributing on the advice sections over recent weeks, I've decided that it's best to take some time away from the site. It's not because of anything anyone's said so don't worry. The reason is I'm in a pretty low state of mind at the moment, and it only dawned on me today how low that actually was, and as I'm a firm believer in getting your own house in order before trying to help with someone else's it's something I need to get on top of. As such, from the end of this month I won't be on the site much. I am planning to return once this is sorted, as I still feel I have more to give to the site; unfortunately right now I'm kind of in the chocolate teapot category in terms of usefulness.
I'll still be receiving PMs and VMs and will answer them as and when I can, but other than that I'll see you all when I'm back. Take care everyone.

I'm glad you're taking some time for yourself I definitely agree with your mindset, and apparently airlines do as well-- "secure your mask before helping others"-- hehe. Anyways, know that we are here to help you, too! You don't always need to be the one helping. Although, I can definitely understand how space and time to deal with things your own way could be most beneficial. In any case, my inbox is always open.

Enough of that, take care, feel better. We'll be here.

You appear to have consistently put an enormous amount of effort into each of your posts, so it's good that you are taking some time out for yourself now.

Re: Taking some time off - November 29th 2011, 06:59 PM

Thanks for all of the messages - I really appreciate them. It's not been an easy decision to make but unfortunately it seems to be something which is getting worse rather than better, and I need to just stop and get my bearings back again before figuring out how to proceed. I have been prone to depression before and this feels like it's heading that way so I want to nip it in the bud before that happens. Rest assured, I will take up all offers of help should the need arise - I'm not the suffer-in-silence type nowadays!

This will be my last post on the site until I'm back, so again thanks for the support and take care.

Good for you for deciding to take some time for yourself. I get where you're coming from. Sometimes you just have to take care of yourself first before helping others.

We're always here for you if you need any support!

Take care of yourself while you're gone.
