    Dear Friends,

    After four years of moderating, I find myself spread too thin. I have been focusing on regaining my own health and it is turning into a full-time job. I am getting better slowly but the challenge of healing seems to be getting greater. I am finding that I have less and less time to devote to moderating.

    I will continue to be a participating member here. Every single treatment I have found helpful has come from our members here. This is such a valuable resource for us. The members are what makes this place so special and I want to thank everyone here. I keep everyone in my prayers. God bless you all.

    Love, Mikie

    You have been such a great asset to us for such a long time. But I can totally understand that your health and priorities come first.

    At least you will be remaining a member and I look forward to seeing you here as either a moderator or member.

    Best of luck to you and so happy you'll post when possible.

    Much love,
    Faye

    moderating a message board like this involves, and the extra work and hours required when things do not go as smoothly as everyone would like. You, and the other moderators here, have given us the gift of your time.

    Thank you for helping to make the Immume Support message board a great resource from which many of us have benefitted.

    love, Tansy

    You will be missed. I have not been on this site for long, but the time I have you have been truely an inspiration and a god send to me and many others.

    I completely understand your reasons and I am sure I am not the only one that feels that you need to focus on your health first before you can help focus on others.

    Dear Mikie,

    I have not been participating all that long but I have been reading messages for a while. You seem so wise and have such a balanced view of the world. You have worked so hard and so long on behalf of all of us here.You deserve more time to devote to your own healing.

    Thanks you so much for your selfless work and I look forward to your continuing posts.

    All the Best

    Kathy.

    Sometimes we just have to know when to hold and when to fold.

    I'm glad you're staying on the board though!

    You've done a great job being a Moderator.

    See you around

    I can understand your decision, and what is really neat is that you won't be leaving, and we will still get to talk with you, you with all your wisdom and discretion and your wonderful personality.

    I'm sure being a moderator takes hours of time and takes a toll because of the stress, etc.

    Best wishes for your health...please keep posting so we don't have to worry about you. I surely do appreciate your time as moderator; you do a wonderful job.

    Blessings,
    Sue

    I understand what you're saying, but I don't want to lose you as a moderator. You've been so good to me - to all of us, and I know I'll miss seeing your posts/advice.

    Please continue to post, and keep us posted on how you're doing. I'm glad you're getting off the Klonopin as it doesn't mix with Xyrem. I hope that you'll find the right treatment - Xyrem or not - and moderate again.

    I moderate on another site and I know how much work it is, but it's so rewarding, too.

    Please feel better soon, and please keep posting.

    I'm not going anywhere. I just don't feel I can do justice to moderating and work so hard at healing. Something has to give.

    Moderating here has been a privlege and I remain a strong supporter of ProHealth and their products and charitible programs.

    Your posts are bringing tears to my eyes. Thank you all so much for your kindness.

    Love, Mikie

    You've been such a good moderator, I can only echo what everyone has already said. Voices of reason are often few and far between.

    Moderating must have amounted to almost being a full time job, I don't know how you've done what you have done! You have been greatly appreciated!

    Hope you find that the extra time to devote to recovery really helps you in leaps and bounds!

    All the best,
    Victoria
