: : : right now, I am tired, I am unhappy, and I don't want to do this anymore - even Huggy has her limits.
: : : Adele
: : Now, now, dear Adele, don't go getting all tore out of your frame ... as they say in these parts. Wait. This is better. Don't go getting your knickers in a twist! Sound familiar? I just learned that one! Cheer up, kiddo. It all blows over in the end!
: : Anyway, WHAT don't you want to do anymore? Sensitive sorts like me could get the wrong impression!
: Rich, you know that I come in here for a bit of fun, a bit of escapism and for 'higher education' from people with a wealth of experience and knowledge. I am in the middle of a war on the home front.....and I don't want to come here and be faced with another one. I can't, just not upto it right now. And yes, before you say it, I know that I am being hyper sensitive and over reacting - I guess this is just the straw that broke the camels back. When we have a serious discussion (which I really enjoy), I want to talk calmly and listen to what is being said by others, I do not want an opinion rammed down my throat when my own posts are not even being given consideration. THAT is what I don't want to do anymore.
: Sorry, maybe I started this, maybe MY posts aren't as sensitive as I would like to think, maybe I am not tactful enough, I don't know.
: All I know right now, is that I probably shouldn't be posting at all, because I am not upto it. And so on that note, I will stop.
: Thanks for your concern,
I, like others, I'm sure,understand what you've said & why you feel as you do. Presumption on many fronts is a bit more common around here than many realize. You've raised an important point regarding your opinions &, perhaps, your ever cheery & graceful disposition has caused a 'taking for granted' posture by many, though unintentionally.
The board is intended as a forum for many things; education, exchange, & fun rank highest on the list.
All I can say is this; when you feel that posting here brings you stress rather than pleasure, please take a breath & step back for a bit. You have important matters elsewhere that require excessive energy as is ... I KNOW you've uplifted others & I appreciate reading (and thinking about)all your thoughts - but,
do so only when it's a positive for you.
Take care, please!
