@ Wilde woman..... I have been enjoying reading your blogs. You're a very good writer indeed. I tried replying to some of them but my brain tried to prohibit it by becoming awfully distractable by the lovely backdrop which is awfully similar to my blog site thing. You see, I tried blogging but realised I could only write nonsense.

I actually wrote a really big response to a writing but it never showed up....what a pity.

Not sure what happened to your posting Mr Cartoon... Unlike here I have no tech support to resolve such things... Will try asking a few geek friends of mine and blogger. Swear words are banned if you were being particularly passionate, but beyond that I dunno. Thanks for letting me know as now I can try and do something about it.

I despair of this site when I hit send.

New posting

Subject: Survivor Guilt

Seems kinda needed right now I thought.

The songs is er... no I'll let you decide what the song's about for yourselves publicly, suffice to say it helped me and hope it helps others. Make it yours if you like it or find something you can make yours if you don't.

Have reached my pain and suffering threshold now, so sorry I won't be on the rest of this site anymore. Will write and keep writing on my blog, but listening is to others is right out for me at the mo... taking my own advice and having time-out and being a bit selfish to recharge my batteries.

Oh and I've added to the blog since posting it earlier today. Seems to me I need to heed my own words more...!

Correction KS's picture isn't on Mindwalking... it's on This Inspiration... Somehow I think that's rather fitting, but I know she followed both.

Hope you come back to us some time, but I can understand that a time out can help. I have a time out every other day lol

Trying to simplify my life and concentrate on what is important. But trying to pick out what is important is not as easy as it sounds.

Just as I am getting more involved in this site more people I care about seem to be leaving

One of the things that has been a constant over the last few years is this site so it is important and I have found that replying to posts etc calms me maybe as your blog does you.

Limboland... on http://mindwalking-ajournalofdiscovery.blogspot.com/ now.

Vampyros me darling, you shouldn't take it personally if people are leaving SF - they might be enjoying life and need the break. I think many will be adjusting to the loss of Katy-Sara and find coming here hard at the moment too.

I find I need a break from hearing of other's suffering as it can trigger illness in me. Then again there are other times when it's just what I need.

Finally many people read but don't contribute. I've noticed postings where people have been reading for years but only just plucked up the courage to post something.

Horses for courses, everyone likes different things and at different times. What a boring old world it would be if it were otherwise, we'd all resemble sheep... baaaah!

You know full well why I'm only posting here now, but it might not be written in stone!

I wasn't taking it personally really just know how important you are. I know you especially needed the break.

As it goes things have moved on. I have been informed that I have over stepped by boundaries with my posts and that I have become offensive.

I have not been asked to leave but since I would never want to abuse this site I will restrict myself to the WRITERS THREAD only until after publication of the tribute book.

To Katy - this site was so important to you, if I have sullied your memory and work in anyway I am sincerely sorry.

All references to myself (apart from as a general contributor) will be removed from the tribute book - I don't want to grandstand just raise a glass to an amazing Lady and friend and also ensure that we do what we can to ensure her work carries on - I know many others are doing similar projects in their own areas of expertise.

Again - I AM SORRY

I posted my response to this under the Katy-Sara thread. Don't you dare stop contributing as you wish. You have the right to do so. I've never seen you cross the line on anything but if you ever did I have no doubt a moderator would intervene.

That said, even moderators can't be all things to all people all the time which is why I'm glad to know this site has several. Aside from anything else they have feelings, needs and opinions too; some we will like and others we might not it's only with variety that we can gain objectivity and balance I reckon!

Thanks for that.

I would never forgive myself if I hurt anyone on this site or the site itself.

Nothing wrong with needing support. Along with many I've felt terribly guilty for not being there more for Katy-Sara but then my psychologist pointed out that I was busy fighting my own demons, stresses and battles. A brother terminally ill being one.

At another time I might have been strong enough to be there to make a difference, but whether or not I would or could have been 'the one' to make that difference is impossible to say and the same is true of everyone here. Those who were closest and were there will probably feel all the worse for not making that difference and it is to them my sympathies go now for I know what it's like to be there yet the loved one still dies. It took comprehensive and intensive counselling to get me through it.

Bereavement is a demon beast and often needs professionals to help us through. So folks, do the wise thing and seek that support. If there's blame to be attributed then it lies firmly with the illness not individuals not even Katy herself. So here's a tip I got from that counselling - be angry with the illness and gentle, considerate and understanding of all those who grieve.

Put yourself in the other person's shoes before you end up making assumptions about them and listen. We've all got something in common here - we're hurting. Let not that pain of ours cause pain to others.
Pain is pain - not a competition.
