just want to express some things before i head on out.

first off, many survivors here have done these kinds of posts, myself included on more than one occasion to find many of us back again. mine were more out of frustration and a feeling of a severe lack of compassion and support for me.

this post, hopefully, will be different in that i'm not saying goodbye and never coming back, or coming back later even though i said i wouldn't. nope, this is more of a see you later. i'm going to be gone for a while. not sure how long to be honest, as i will explain later.

i have come to a place, in my recovery, where i feel that i've reached a point, at this time, that i've gotten everything that i can get out of ms. i'm barely here anymore as it is, and it's usually to answer pm's.

at this time, the only thing that would greatly increase my activity on ms is to have a role on ms as a greeter or mod. seems to me that having a role like that on ms is the only thing else i can get anything out of it these days. however, without going into details, i know that a position for me here on ms will, more than likely, not happen.

so, that leaves me at a place where i need to venture elsewhere. look for other avenues in exploring my recovery. if i should, which may happen, i come to a spot later down the road where ms, and the users here, can be of some help in some of the issues i may face is when i will come back and look for that help, support and guidance.

this is not goodbye... this is a see all of you later...

take care and wishing everyone the best in their recoveries.

live another day. climb a little higher.

obi -

you are one of the shrinking number that i remember from my first days participating here. by your contributions, you contributed significantly to my progress - and for that i thank you. i am glad that you have derived a significant amount of help from MS, and wish you well in your search for the next step. glad to hear that it is not necessarily goodbye forever.

hoping to cross paths with you again sometime,
