Mark and my friends know....Once a friend always a friend, no matter what.

As a Mod or in private, I had to deal with a lot of s***, but I have not yet felt the need to block someone.

Thanks, Chris.
And thanks, Ulihon.

Yes, 'tis true.
Some did know a bit more of who I really was and remained friends regardless.

Meow.

Message 1891532 - Posted: 23 Sep 2017, 13:52:30 UTC - in response to Message 1891501.  

In the case of Mark, many people only saw the man up front, not the man inside. Yes he'd regularly go on public 6 &12 hour timeouts every w/e, but how many saw him on a Wednesday over in number crunching gladly helping out a newbie with a technical problem, or running a fund raiser. Many people only use the cafe and never got the whole picture.


A very big thumbs up to that, Chris....but even that would result in flak, elsewhere. It wasn't that hard to 'see' the true Kittyman, but some people just saw what they wanted to.

Congratulations Mark on FIVE MONTHS!

I KNOW you could do it and will not fall back to the bad days of past.

One day at a time leads to one week at a time and leads to one month at a time and leads to one year.... etc.

Here is to a remaining lifetime of Mark being sober!

Thanks, Iona.
As I said earlier....that is part of my past now. And I do not hold any ill will towards others who handled my bad behavior in the manner they wished or needed to. Whether they shall ever forgive me remains to be seen.

And thank you very much, Dr Who Fan.
One day at a time, yup.
I do not intend to slip and fall. Right now I am very confidant I shall not.
But rest assured that after knowing this side of things again, if I ever did, it would not last very long!!

Meeeeeeeeeeeeow.....there goes that kittyman again!
