As 2016 draws to an end it brings a time of reflection on the year past. We all know that 2016 has not been a great year, the world of entertainment has lost so many great people. It’s no surprise that many of us are wishing for this year to be done, and that the new one will bring better times.
Aside from the public sadness, some of us will also be going through personal crisis of our own. Some people choose to make these things public on social media and the like, and that’s fine for them, if it helps them come to terms with whatever they are going through, I see nothing wrong with that. Myself, I prefer not to do that. I am a very private person preferring to share my personal and real life issues with those people I’m closest to. It’s rare you find any posts from me concerning personal issues. Which is why I have found it difficult to write this post, but it’s something I needed to do.
A few months ago, myself and my real life partner, after a couple of years separation, decided to give it another go. We were getting on well, life was good and for me, I wasn’t lonely anymore. We made plans, Christmas was going to be so good, we were both happy. Then, just a few weeks ago, he became ill. After a trip to the doctors, and some routine tests, it was found he had a shadow on his lung. More tests and a biopsy later we had the diagnosis confirmed two weeks before Christmas. He has Lung Cancer. Safe to say our worlds have fallen apart. On the 21st December, just a few days before Christmas he had his first Chemotherapy session. There are no guarantees the treatment will work. We have been told this cannot be cured. It MAY be able to be controlled but we won’t know that yet, time will tell. Right now all we have is hope. But it’s a strong hope.
I have to embark on a long difficult journey. My Second Life time will be limited. To that end, I will be saying goodbye to a lot of my sponsors, just keeping a very few that I feel able to keep up with posting. Over the coming days I will be writing to those of you I need to say goodbye to. I do this with a very heavy heart.
So yes, whilst I too will be glad to see the back of 2016, I am dreading 2017 and what it will bring for me and my family.
I wish you all a Happy and Healthy New Year and hope that 2017 brings you everything you want it to.
