I am sorry for running off at the mouth the other day with my problems, I really do appreciate all the support that I received, it was truly amazing and unexpected. I do have an enlarged prostate and have to go back on the 16th for more tests. I don’t know what to say to you all except thank and God Bless you all. I realized after, this was not the place for me to unload my fears and I apologize for wasting your time for that. Mike

I’m more than fine with you sharing. This is a community.

Mike: We want people to come to us for support. Like it has been said we are a community of different people. But, we care about one another. We are here to support you. We can’t be there to hold your hand, but, let us hold it from afar.

God Bless You.

Ditto what Dennis said. It is the community that brings us together here. We don’t have the kind of flame wars that seem to happen elsewhere in cyberspace. We are here to learn from each other and share information. If that information from time to time involves personal concerns we should support those personal concerns. If people felt that your post was inappropriate, people would not have responded. You reached out to the community and the community responded in a positive, caring way.

Mike… If no one on here shared anything except technical woodworking tidbits, it’d be an awfully boring place to visit. You made me feel better today knowing that I wasn’t the one getting a TV crew shoved up my most intimate places.

That is what we’re talking about, right… wrong forum? uh oh. I’ve said too much.

Don’t feel bad Mike
I live with a chronic pain disorder, everyday i have to struggle with it just to get through the day.
I spend lots of time in hospitals and i hate it but i do what i have to do.
I am grateful that i can still do woodworking most of the time and it,s even better when i can post it on here.
It,s nice to have a site like this to come too to distract me from my everyday pain.
When it comes to your health everyone should be concerned. Without that we are in big trouble.

ditto re: community and FAMILY.
if someone isn’t interested in personal discussions then they will just move on to the next woodworking post. Simple.

one of the hardest things about having internet friends is not being able to be there (and often not knowing) when something is happening in their 3D world.

With each other’s help we have been kept up to date about several members’ personal issues (children, spouses, selves).
Thank you for having the courage to share … AND it really says a lot about LJ.com that you come here for support!

God bless.. and we’ll be pullin for ya.

All is okay if you’re okay Mike! Just go to the Doc’s and take care of yourself. I have always felt that we are all here for a reason and it is up to us to find that reason. Sort of our Life’s goal.

You had a “strange” father also, Mike? I didn’t meet my real Father until I was nearly 40 myself. By the time I was 8, my Mom went through 3 fathers for me. Didn’t learn to trust anyone until I was out of college.

Amen to what MsDebbie says: if someone isn’t interested in personal discussions then they will just move on to the next woodworking post….. and: God bless… we’ll be pullin for ya.

I’m with the rest of the crew on this one Mike. Not to mention the fact that you got the prayers and support of people that care about you and would be concerned if you stopped showing up one day without warning. Experience, strength and hope (heard that one somewhere before?). That’s what LJs is about. Did they do a PSA test? Now you need to keep us in the loop, since we are all in this now!

Mike, you did not waste my time and I care about you and the other LumberJocks. I want to know when you need prayer or any other thing. I will continue to pray for your prostrate to shrink and for you to be well. My feelings are in agreement with all the previous post, too. We’re family!
