time for changes

Jul 22, 2013 - 16 comments

I've put a lot of thought into this decision but it's time for me to move on from doing online std support.  I've been doing this for over 15 years now on varied forums and I know I will miss doing it at times but I'm trying to make some changes to my own life and hope to have less time in general to devote to the forums.  I've really enjoyed helping others deal with the stigma and misinformation that surrounds all std's but especially herpes.  I am fortunate enough to be a nurse in a major teaching institution and have the resources to educate myself to help others both in my day job and here.  I've really enjoyed helping so many of you and I've made some great friendships from folks I've met online too :)

I will leave my profile active since there is so much info in my journal posts but I will not be replying to any comments or questions.

The Oregon coast is great and always in need of good nursing talent.  :)  Check out Florence, Newport and charming Cannon Beach.

I'm from  PA so I can't offer you a job at the beach but I would love for you to come back and be the moderator again.  The site hasn't been the same.   I'm sure I speak for all those that followed your posts, we miss you !

All the best grace for the future. You will be greatly missed from the forum. Your knowledge and responses were invaluable. And for me personally I can't tell you how I appreciate your time. Thankyou so much. Take care. Enjoy :)

so I decided to stop job hunting at this point and go back to school to complete my BSN.  I can't even imagine what I was thinking when I decided to do

I stop in here now and then to answer a few posts :)

Well thats a good decision! And its always good to see your voice in the herpes forum. We are doing our best to carry on your work there but still have much to learn about herpes.

Great to "see" you!  Congrats on going back to school, good for you!  I found the RN-BSN program mostly a breeze, compared to regular Nursing'll do great!!  Happy Holidays to you and yours!  XOXO
