I am still alive...

Post by iamachessstudent » Thu Oct 23, 2014 12:20 pm

I am here and alive!
I thank Cliff and leormebanco for asking about my well-being and before I explain..I agree with Cliff. As long as no one is bickering, arguing or fighting, this forum useless.
The summer was a terrible time for me (for those that care)
I lost my Mom AND Dad, was homeless for awhile and dropped out of college.
I have the home back now ( my mom n dad's) and am struggling since my mental breakdown and lack of support from family.
BUT I thank Cliff for asking, my e mail was down, so I wasn't able to receive any, BUT it is also up and running again...so please e mail me
I will communicate with the site but as far as playing here again; as I put everything into perspective..no-one really cares here; well a few do but it makes it a site that is just chess only no interaction, no fun, no discussions (unless it is fighting and arguing) and I just don't need that right now.
I will miss playing here but as I said, this site..... very negative and not very supportive at all. I am sorry if I offend anyone, but I really do not care.

Take care and Cliff and others that want to stay in touch you know my e mail and if not, you may ask Cliff for it...tho I don't expect to hear from many.

Hi Josh!

Great to hear that you're okay, old friend! A goodly number of us were worried about you.

Sorry to hear that you went through all that s**t, but at least it's all over now.

I'll drop you an email a bit later, and we can chat a bit more. Brian also asked for your email, so you'll likely be hearing from him soon, also.

- Cliff.

Joshua,

My sincerest condolences on the loss of your parents and my sympathy for your incredible string of all-encompassing other disasters.Though you and I haven't played each other for a considerable time,I remember the excellent quality of your play and the value I attached to your comments and,later to your forum posts.

I've personally been so otherwise preoccupied that I pretty much temporarily stopped checking into the forum at all.

You are one of the relatively few members on this site that I've felt somehow connected to for more than just a 4 or 5 year period and it's hard to explain why in view of our not meeting on the board for several years now.

That I feel strongly enough about your well-being to engage in this posting may seem at odds with my normal forum invisibility but may give you a truer gauge of the bond that actually exists in the Net-Chess community among its members than you'd concluded,rather logically,existed based on the puny posted evidence to the contrary by the rest of us.

All my fondest wishes,
David
