I'd like to say that while I was busy writing my post above, the person who sent the PM apologised. I didn't see the (new) PM until after I posted. I thanked him and accepted his apology, although I will forever be wary of this person now.

Gosh Ann, i am abit taken a back !!

You thanked the guy, accepted his apology and yet  ' I will forever be wary ' that is not very positive is it ??
HIV has taken the word 'FOREVER' away from me, nothing is forever !!

If you take a bottle, fill it half way with water , then add half a cm of oil. Put the lid on. Give it a good shake, the oil may disappear, but, if you give it time, the oil will come back up, it always does --FOREVER --(for that i am sure) So Ann , be like the OIL -- FOREVER ON TOP !!

CHEERS !!

Ann,

Call me slow but it took me awhile to figure out whom you were talking about that you received the pm from.

I can only hope that he gets his shit together and comes back to the forum and openly apologizes to you.

In a dignified and proper manner that I know he is able to afford you.

If hes the kind of man that I think/know he is, Hell do just that.

You are a wonderful person Ann, who has touched many lives worldwide. He also, happens to be a fascinating, intelligent young man that has so much to give to the world, including everyone here at AIDSmeds.

I stand buy my original comment when I said that I enjoyed two intelligent individuals having an exchange of ideas. I care for both of you deeply.

Terry {{{{all my respect}}}}

Siang,

Yes, I will always be wary of him now. Once bit, twice shy. I'm not frightened, mind you, just wary.

Terry,

Yes, I absolutely agree with you that he is an intellegent young man with a lot to offer. He also does himself a disservice at times with the style of his delivery. I know and you know that he can be very caring and sensitive and a gold-mine of information, but he can also be very nasty at times and in this case, he hurt someone who is his ally, whether he realises it or not. 

Right now, after all this has died down, my main worry is that something is seriously troubling him - something that has nothing to do with that thread. I too hope he sorts it out.

Cheers Terry.

Ann

Ann-
Sorry to hear about ur rough day. Ur tops w/ me. When I 1st joined, I was scared as hell; then both u and Matty educated me and got me to where I am today. I cannot even think of times that ur away from these forums. W/ that being said it shows a lot of dedication on ur part in supporting and education others.
Whenever u have a "bad" day, take some time out for urself. U really deserve it.

OMG!  Pink luggage?  Sunglasses please!  :o

 Glad to hear you took some time off ...and got an apology.

I too would be wary...and that's all I have to say  :P

Is it me, or does this remind some of the movie Groundhog Day?  I keep seeing Ann's day over and over and over!! ;D

  Ann,

  You have a fan here in Florida...


   I really do not see what the big fuss was over.  One person started his usual mindless spewing of hate and everyone followed suit.  He asked when is it going to stop.  Hopefully the day he is banned....

Eldon, Thank you for your support.

RobT, I'm glad I was able to help out when you first came here. Thank you for your kind words.

David, Yes, pink luggage. ~sigh~

Andrew, LOL - yes, it is getting a bit like Groundhog Day. It's over now from my point of view and I hope others feel the same.

Ryan, I'm not generally a punchy person (afraid of hurting my knuckles!) and I don't hold grudges either. Too much like hard work and a grudge is a toxic thing to hold. Thanks for your support.

Tom, Sometimes shit happens. Such is life. I don't want to see anyone banned from here, I just want to see people making an effort to be kind to each other and thankfully, that is the case more often than not. Thanks for your support too.

Rich, I'm so happy you're getting back on track. I admire the courage you have displayed in recent days. Keep up the good work and don't let small set-backs discourage you. And thank you also for your support.

More group hugs... :D

Ann
