im about to do a very drunken ramble of a post, so bare with me.

I didnt know which forum this belonged in, but since im in so many playground-related side games, i threw it in here. if it belongs somewhere else, please move it for me.

i have had a rough last few months. working extra hours. moving from one apartment to the next, looking for a new car, preparing for me & my gf's future move to a new city with resumes, applications & everything that goes with it, & just plain being too busy for the PG, which has resulted in me delaying many of the side games i am involved in & not posting as much as i wish i could.

to add to all of this, i have recently found out that my gf of 8 years' mother (practically my mother-in-law), has cancer. not just a little bit, but a lot. things are not going well.

so what has already made me postpone the games i am involved in will only get worse. i could check in occasionally, but with my mind elsewhere most of the time, i am unable to keep the commitment i made when i started the games.

it is already taking me days longer than necessary to make simple updates, which is unfair to the rest of the players involved, so i thought instead of sharing this with the few that are running the games, that i would share this with all that are involved, so everyone would understand that i am not backing out for no reason.

i know i should not feel bad about this, but at the same time, i hate making commitments that i cannot keep. i will still be visiting the PG as much as possible, but can no longer commit to playing the side games that i am involved in, or any games in the future, until i find the time to do so, or the time finds me.

i am sorry if i am putting anyone out, but my girlfriend, our family, & our future must come first, so i must put other things aside at the moment.

I feel you man. I'm going through a similar situation with my dad, and we are very close.
I suggest you do what I'm doing and take as much time as possible and give it to those who have less of it. I'm sorry to my PG bros, but I'm sure you understand why I haven't been as active.

best of luck brother

Hope everything works out. I found out my dad had cancer a few years ago, and it was a very scary thought of losing him. Luckily, radiation did its' job, and he's been cancer free for over a year. Keep your head up, and think positive

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Sorry to hear the bad news bro.

These side games are just a distraction from life as it is, and when life gets rough it is totally understandable that your attention must shift.

Do not feel bad at all about having to leave, Im sure I speak for everyone when I say that we all wish you the best...

We understand buddy. Hopefully everything turns around and gets better for you sooner rather than later. Best of luck to you. You've got the support of the entire PG behind you.
