So long, and thanks for all the curries


Most of you won't know me, I've had access difficulties for a while and even when I've been on, I've restricted myself to a couple of threads.

I've decided due to various reasons that I won't be coming on here any longer.

Have been thinking about this for a while. I originally started posting on the Injury forum due to ongoing problems that have never really cleared up. In the last few years I've really been struggling with one thing after another.

I keep on getting my hopes up but they keep getting dashed. I don't think I'll ever get fit again and I've given up the struggle as I'm worn out, both mentally and physically.

Being around running people is just hammering this home.

So now I'm going to try to focus my dwindling energies on getting my career out of the toilet and just functioning from day to day.

Anyway, enough of me. What I started this for was to thank anyone who's had a kind word for me in the past, has welcomed me at a social and just generally brightened my life up.

There are those whom I thought were friends who have since hurt me greatly. You may know who you are, you may be completely oblivious to it. More fool me for trusting you and letting you do that.

Good luck to you all in the future. I hope you achieve your ambitions and lead happy and successful lives.

    I know I I used to enjoy your contributions. So sorry you've had to abandon running. Hope you'll find another way to fitness and that the rest of life becomes manageable and enjoyable.
  • best wishes our tor.

  • I am sorry to hear that you've decided to quit running.

    Good luck, and I hope you're successful in your ambitions.
  • Tor, it was lovely to meet you (briefly) last night. Good luck and keep smiling. I hope everything works out for you.
  • Gosh Toria, the very best of luck. I'd always hoped I'd bump into you one day as your responses on threads have always been very welcome.

    Be happy in whatever you do.
  • Toria - Good luck with your career and exams. Sorry to think last night would be last time I'd get to talk to you.

  • Tor you will be missed babe.

    Mail me
  • Toria- a lot of us will miss you. I didn't realise that things had become that bad for you. It has always been nice to see you at curry evenings and socials, you always had a kind word for me when you were aware that I had issues to deal with. I will keep in touch. x
  • Shame, but if you think it is for the best, then so be it.

    All the best x
  • Tor - all the very best. I couldn't help noticing the time you posted this. If insomnia's part of the problem,I found this really helpful, especially the bit about thinking you've been awake for hours when you've actually been having mini-sleeps. It meant I stopped fretting about not sleeping, so I'm more likely to sleep better. Anyway, if it is part of what's going on, here's the link and hope it helps.

    Take care and good luck
  • ((((Toria)))) take care
  • Sorry to hear this, Tor, and especially sorry I didnt
    manage to speak with you last night.
    You have mail.
  • Just want to add my best wishes Toria.
    I don't know what your issues are, so I won't presume to know that I can offer constructive help. But I do hope things work out well for you in whatever you do.
    Take it easy.
  • Toria

    I don't know you but I am sorry

  • Just seen this
    you have mail Tor
  • Only just found out myself Tor. Mail from me too.
  • :-(((((((((((((((((((((

    No longer will I be able to say: "Cor it's Tor!"
  • Tor - don't know the full story, or need to, but just wanted to say thanks for being welcoming at the couple of curry nights I've been to. Hope everything works out well for you.

    good luck Tor, I met you once at a curry night and its a real shame you won't be here anymore, you will be missed.
    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can 
  • Tor, best of luck babe

    Go find your mojo

  • Ive just seen this too.

    Wishing you lots and lots of luck for the future. Take care x
  • Hello, just popping in briefly while my laptop's letting me.

    Things are about the same with me: I had the hip arthrogram last week which was a bit grim. They found a small problem and gave me a steroid injection but there hasn't been much of an improvement yet. Not seeing them again until August.

    It's funny how much time you have when there's no training to do. And how much you can waste doing nothing!

    I need to reply to a few of your emails as well, sorry about the delay, work has been a little hectic and my email access at home has been erratic.

    If anyone else wants to keep in touch, I can be found on Facebook poking various people.

    Or I'm still up for a curry if I can fit into my clothes (weight is on the up and up and up...).

    Thank you for all your kind messages, you made me cry, again.
