A Little Message to RRU

Posted by JimbobJeffers , 06 May 2014 · 384 views

I feel I ought to somewhat explain my behaviour over the past month or so. Maybe I'm making a big deal out of nothing, but I feel that I haven't shown the cheeriness and caring personality that I previously had to members of RRU when posting and engaging in conversation. I've been quite inactive and not kept on top of private messages/the server/mods/etc.

So, I don't want to go into specifics in some things because they are pretty private, but... I am going through one HECK of a crazy life-bomb right now. It feels like things are falling apart, and I'm working so very hard to keep the threads of my life together, because how dare other people and uncontrollable events try to control me and my life, my life which I should enjoy.

One big thing is this: I have suffered from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for the past two years. It has made my education very, very difficult, along with my social life and my personal fitness. I can't go out for long without feeling awful and offending others with my need to go home, I can't go to college and get work done nor can I focus on work at home for too long, and I can't meet up with people for conversations.

This has led onto me becoming incredibly stressed. I am finishing coursework/approaching exams of the biggest educational step yet before University, the final step before the beginning of my career. So it's a big deal, and my fatigue is hindering my progress. It may be hard to believe, but I have never been stressed about school coursework/exams before, because I'm just one of those types that gets it done as it comes (unfortunately that led to a difficult social life at school, but that's all over now).

Add onto that a rather horrible and messy situation at home that has really, really affected me and my family emotionally, something I cannot emphasise enough how horrible it is and something I cannot and will not discuss to anyone but the closest people to me, and also personal struggles of mine, and... Well, I'm a mess. I didn't think life could get any worse but it has proved me wrong time and time again.

Now, lucky for me, I'm a fighter. No matter what life shoves in my face, I will fight through it, because I want to live my life. My number one goal in life? Not to be rich, famous, have a decent career, change the world, or 'small' things either... No, my number one goal is to be happily married. I want to be an excellent man for someone else. So I'm going to fight for that like the world is coming to an end - I have my sword in hand, and keep picking myself back up whenever I fall down - but it doesn't make it any easier these things I'm going through.

So, in conclusion... I apologise if I have offended anyone, or through my neglect to keep on top of things on the forum have inconvenienced anyone. Really, I am so very sorry.
And, I've decided it's time I take a break from Rock Raiders United. I love this family, and it has supported me so very well, I've loved my year-and-a-half here. But things are just getting too much, and I need a time out.

To those of you who I have been in regular contact with via PM, and/or otherwise have commitments to, I will not leave that behind. I'll try to keep in contact through Skype, and maybe on the forum too. Also, I will keep paying for the Minecraft server and check up on it, but I doubt I'll be hosting any events.

Thank you RRU, and I look forward to being back again soon. Heck, it would be funny if this only lasted a week before I'm back, and I'd surely love that! But I doubt it. So, for now, goodbye, and thank you all :)

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for the past two years

I knew a person who had this and could see the same affects you mentioned.


Not to be rich, famous, have a decent career, change the world, or 'small' things either... No, my number one goal is to be happily married.

A noble goal, my own also.

Keep at it, I hope things start looking up soon. Hope to see you back again soon.

I feel really bad for you. I know people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and the effects are devastating to them.


I hope you do well with your exams and that your life gets better.

I wish you luck in dealing with this.

I could write more, and I still may, but for now, this should be enough. :)



This song is enough to make almost anybody cry yet be uplifted at the same time.

Le beat me to it. I link that song to all of my friends when they're down. I'm listening to it as I write this comment, and I can't make words. That song says it best. Hope everything turns out better for you and we will proudly await your return. :)


Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.

We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious.....And curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

Goodbye, good luck, and have fun! Remember: the I in the circle! :P It's all I can really say, but... I can't help it if it's what I think. And 'Have fun.' That seems like a stupid and non-sensitive thing to say... but don't always focus on the downs. And that sounded even worse. :P

The little 'thank/like' just ain't enough here. Thank you all, I really appreciate just you taking the time to read this, but especially the kind words you have given :) Big hugs and man-hugs all round. Blegh *manly cough*

I hope, that you will overcome all those problems and manage to live a happy life.


PS: Somehow this sounds a bit like a generic one liner. Sorry for that^^

Sorry, it's just that your avatar is Docs, and we all know about the German LRR Human comic... :P

I certainly did not expect this from you, but then again, we know little about each other here personally (though there are exceptions). Probably highly unrelevant but I still remember you being the first one to 'personally' hear from on RRU. Anyway, for those one and a half years I've known you you did some amazing stuff around here: LR overhaul and that character skinner, RR related stuff (which I just don't know much of since I'm not much of a rock raider really) and you granted the MC fans a RRU a server, many thanks for that by the way. I can't list them all here, but you've contributed a lot and well worthy that title.

I always noticed that you express yourself in a well behaved and elaborated way in your posts, without finding myself having to search through the whole dictionary to figure out the meaning of those few words like 'grandiloquent' or 'depravity' (not meant negatively Quiche and element 106). That I always found very typical of you (again, not meant negatively).

What else can I say now? Well, take care of yourself and good luck fighting your way through the many obstacles in life as you say.


Heck, it would be funny if this only lasted a week before I'm back, and I'd surely love that! But I doubt it.

Doubt it? Don't start thinking like that. Don't accept the doubts to creep into you, just my advice.
