    At work, and only have minutes before I have to go back. I haven't time to really go into it but an argument on another forum (one that means the world to me) has left me being attacked by a series of members. I want to jack everything in - but I won't eat.

    The important part of your post is the last four words. This will pass.
    Keep focused. ;)

    Thanks everyone.

    I'm ok. I think the upset was because I felt attacked (can't really go into this as it would mean explaining things I can't due to being a mod on the forum and confidentiality). But also because I am havign an emotional time with RTM (end of week 3 tonight), and my upcoming op/worry over getting things straight for if things go wrong).

    Hi Andy

    Nothing will go wrong. :) You are going to be fine. :)

    Sorry you had such a rough go on the other forum. Forums can be difficult places. This is by far the nicest forum I have EVER been on....It astounds me that over a year and there has not beeon one flame war!

    Don't take it to heart - I hope nothing was said on a personal level. Not knowing, I can only say you are just at the end of someones keuyboard, and often times keyboards are just used for venting and letting go, and people don;t always realise or remember there is a living breathing person at theo ther end.

    Hope you are feeling better now. but do try not to worry about your surgery - its very common what you are doing, they will take good care of you. AND, you might get pampered bys ome cute nurses too!! :D

    Andy, at times of stress I sometimes find myself taking offence at statements that I wouldn't normally bat an eyelid about, and that are really only delivered in innocence.

    Could you be being a bit more sensitive than normal? It would be completely understandable with everything else you are dealing with at this time.

    If this isn't the case then I hope it will blow over soon. These things always do and if the forum is important to you then hang in there. :hug99:

    Forums can indeed by funny places. Amazing how just one comment in cyberspace can make you almost a hate target. I agree with BL that this forum is the nicest I've ever found. Andy - hope you're OK today? Being a mod must be tough as you've got to make decisions on the forum, rather than just acting as a contributor. Don't let bullies sabotage all your hard work xx

    Thanks everyone - I'm better today. It's blown over and I'm no longer upset. I'd say more but I can't really talk about it here - there are several members of the forum here on minimins and while I completely trust them, it just isn't something I can discuss publically, in case it reflects on the mod team.

    I had another gallstone attack this morning - one of the worst I've had, and the longets by far (the initial attack took 3 hours but I spent the next 3 hours with it coming and going if I wasn't careful moving about or taking too big a mouthful of a drink.

    Too much information follows:

    I don't know why, but vomiting helps a lot. When the pain became excrutiating again, I drank 5 glasses of water, which immediately brought the pain back down to a manageable level (after I had vomited). It5's not like there was really anything but water coming back (I suspect bile?).

    Anyway, I now have to be very careful so as not to trigger it all off again and hopefully no more before I hadit removed on the 21st.

    Thanks folks - I'm better this morning (pain finallly went away around midnight, so I had some sort of pain for 18 hours - I know I SHOULD have gone to hospital but the pain was manageable for the last 14 or so hours).

    Foxtrot, it was largely just water - I think it just relieves pressure - I'd have got there in the end - the water just made it quicker and probably smoother!

    Lovely to see you're still here, KW xxx

    Andy - good to hear the pain has finally gone. Sounds terrible. I wish you success in your operation on the 21st. I hate to think of anyone suffering. :hug99:
