    This is turning into an epidemic.

    The research you share generously on this forum is very valuable. I for one have learnt a lot from it, and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

    It would be a travesty if you left. Please think again.

    I have joined another Forum. It is not as good as this one used to be, but better than it is now. Nuff said

    May we ask what is the address of the other forum, so we are able to come a visit you.....

    (Note anyone signed up for email alarts sees all posts before the mods can delete them, therefore even if a mod was daft enough to delete the responce, we will still see it.)

    The other forum's gain, our forum's loss. I'm sorry, but hopefully you will return.

    Like the others - I will miss you and your wisdom but I can't blame you for wanting to take a break at the moment, it is getting pretty awful. *hug*

    I obviously just missed something but I haven't seen anything on here that would make someone want to leave.....

    would need to be quite significant I would think...

    If all the lovely people leave we can't change the forum for the better.

    Have a short break until you shake this off then please come back to us

    Sorry that would break the conditions of the Forum, and anyway it is a personal thing. I will actually be doing research for my wife's recently acquired condition which is not diabetes. I am not wanting to distract anyone from using this forum and as my OP suggests. I am not anticipating a lifetime absence.

    I do not see myself as "a lovely person", but that is my personal interpretation.... Nice song anyway, I used to play it in the band many moons ago. Thank you, but my current song is my swan song.

    It is good that you are not burning your bridges. I wish both you and your wife the best of health and hope that you stay well.

    Oh no.. please reconsider. I've always found your input very useful.
    I know I've been out of the loop for a while but I can't say I've noticed any nastiness. I tend to look at discussion as just that, people may have different opinions, but I find that constructive and like to keep an open mind on things.
