PostSubject: Why I was absent   Mon Feb 16, 2015 2:19 am

Hiya Folks, kinda been off the radar for a while, things had been getting pretty messed up with home life and I was struggling with each new day then out of the blue I got a letter. A letter informing me my Sister and last blood relative in the UK passed away on christmas eve, she took her own life, a long and difficult story for me to express so I wont even try.

The rub of it was that news was the straw that broke the proverbial camels back, I wont trouble you all with the crappy details, sufficed to say I went absolutely postal all over the place and then I found myself back in psychiatric hospital. I'm back out now but still finding day to day life very difficult to cope with and home life woes have not eased up much to my own dismay, but I'm trying my hardest to keep things together and will try to be active here again a little more.

Peace be with you all and may the good Father in Heaven always smile fondly upon you, yes, I have also re-found my religion so that's a good thing I feel, thanks for taking the time to read my drivel, be well and safe journeys all of you.

Not drivel at all. Sorry to hear of your loss and continued struggles, but glad to see your back among us and am looking forward to hearing more from you in the days ahead.

Never drivel when it involves matters of the heart.

You have been missed.  

You are family .

It has been a very very long time since I listened to the teachings of our Lord, at first I found them all too over whelming to take in, the gravity and scope of returning to a religious path is not as easy as one might believe but I am happy to feel God in my heart and soul once again.

Thank you for your kindness, it means a great deal to me. sunny

My sincerest condolence for the loss of your sister. May she found her peace.

I hope that you find peace of mind and a light heart soon Kirk. The fact that you are willing to open yourself on the forum shows that your mind and will are strong.

All the best!  God Bless!

Kirk, all I can say is that iI am sorry for your loss.

It's really good to have you back.

Anyone who has gotten to know you in the wee slightest bit here, knows you're a kind, generous, talented individual.

I hope things continue to get better for you..

I was wondering where you were. Sad to hear you've lost your sister. It's said that God works in mysterious ways.
Hang in there Kirk and know you and your family are in my thoughts.

Kirk, you know my thoughts. It's good to see you back on the BoB too. You were really welcoming on my arrival here so with you away it has felt like something integral to the BoB was missing.

Welcome back chap... here's to the future.

I'm new since you left, but that's one hell of a burden you've had to bear.

I've lost friends to severe depression, but no family members I knew.

Best wishes.

Kirk, it is good to see you back! Nothing I can say that hasn't already been voiced by the others. Just keep yourself strong and know that you have a lot of prayers for yourself and your sister. And don't forget that you have friends.
Be well,
Mike.
