Taking a break - everyone please read!
Permalink Closed


Thanks Linux,

I am officially having a break at the moment, but as you can see I just can`t help popping in to see what`s going on!  Even though I know that Tig is doing a wonderful job, as are the rest of the moderators.  Getting in touch with me was fine, no problem at all, I`m still replying to my messages. 

I`m glad to see you`re finding your way around and making yourself at home here, that`s what we like to see.  smile

.....................................................

Hi Joann, thanks a lot for your kind works, means a lot. All best wishes to you... smile

Hi Cinnamon Girl,

Here you were supposed to be on leave yet you were still one of the first to give me such a friendly greeting when I arrived, I just now got around to reading this or I wouldn't have PM'd you when I should have PM'd Tig ... silly me ... lol ... sorry 'bout that. I haven't quite learned the ropes on this ship yet.

I know that you already know this but Tig and the others are doing a bang up job at holding the fort down, I will look forward to seeing you as you drop in from time to time and will be anxiously awaiting your return in due time.

 

Wishing you well,

Linux

Enjoy your time off Jill. You will be missed but things are in very capable hands. See you when you get back!

Hi Jill and hi to all,

It's been a long time since I've posted, been busy with new full time job.

Jill, looks like you're taking a much needed hiatus from the forum, and have left it in Tig's capable hands. And with Malcolm, Matt and Mike on staff the forum is on solid ground. I hope that your time away will be beneficial and refreshing.      Thank you for all your thoughtful, caring support, very best wishes to you.

I plan on getting back to regular visits here, the forum was here when I needed a supportive and informative setting, and I have not forgotten that.

Cheers,

Tim

Hi Jill,

At four years SVR, it is time to blossom out past your Hep C.  You have been a wonderful help for us all.  I, particularly, loved your common sense, compassionate approach to the many posts.  At my age (79-81) and on a clinical trial with Merck, who had few participants, I found a feeling of acceptance from you that was very comforting. I was/am hardly mainstream.  Even Malcolm is a youngster--LOL.  The many hours you spent to help us all are very appreciated !!!  There are no words to express my admiration for your dedication to this forum.

I wish you joy and adventure as you step away from the computer and run free in the world.  After all, SVR is the time to enjoy life FREE of Hep C.  Stop in now and then to let us know of your adventures.  Now, with the new drugs, many of us are or will be SVR as well.  Change of focus is part of getting well.  It is YOUR time. 

With love and gratitude,  SuziQ

Hi everyone..

I need to be away from the forum for a while and so Tig (Tig56) will be standing in as acting administrator for me.  As most of you know, he`s very capable and knowledgeable and will do an excellent job of steering the ship.

I`ll be checking in from time to time anyway, and will be back in due course. 

Wishing the very best of luck to all our members, I`ll be looking forward to seeing a lot more SVRs on my return!  smile
