Unhappy A weak atempt at an explanation

To all,
Since I was released from the hospital I have been in a tremendous amount of pain. The analgesics and pain killers do little to abate the pain. To add to the crap I have really severe anexiety attacks for no reason at all. The medication works somewhat, but not fully.

I am glad to ride with John as much as possible but it hurts like the devil beating me hisself. I have no intention of quitting but as to being a senior moderator as I requested to be reinstated I feel
I have made a big mistake. I lost my temper on the site over a truly minor incident. There is ne excuse for this. A Marine is always in control.

I will leave my place within the site to be judged by the senior staff. I can be happy as a contribuiting member, and keep my mouth shut.

Please excuse my recent outburst and poor behavior.

Respectfully ,
Bill Barnard

With the utmost respect for all the Band of Brothers and the sanctity of this sight, I do feel it necessary to point out that illness, suffering, injury, resultant surgeries and even stress can make any of us behave in a manner we'd all much prefer not to. It's human nature, and something we know very little about, but we know it's there.
Also, due to the true nature of the Band of Brothers, the multitude of inexplicable events that took place that resulted in its "becoming" (for lack of a better term), and lastly, from the view from the outside looking in, I'm not sure resignation could ever be an option could it?
I would be surprised if it were.
Most humbly,
jim

you know, i look at this forum almost everyday. i have never felt the heart to open this one and read the post of what it was. i mostly knew. this is the very first time i read it. while i was reading it, i didnt even get to the 5 or 6th line...and started to get all teary.... i wish i could make it to the GMB's but from missouri, and low funds, it is hard to do. even though i cant make any yet, please think of me when your all there. i dont have any words to say no more. much love the the BERG family.

machoman, you make me feel like i am there with you when you write those letters. only i couldnt find the words like you do

heard this in a movie the other day and thought of Garrett.

If you put an apple out for people to eat, put no one does. It becomes rotton and no one enjoy its true meaning.

But if you take an apple and put it out and each person that comes by takes a bite out of that apple, it now becomes part of them. The apple will then live on in each person who took a bite.

I find it kind of neat that alot of folks here have eaten from the same apple.
