I am done. I quit!

Recommended Posts

Many of you will be aware that, following a cardiac arrest in October 2018, I suffered an acquired brain injury, firstly described as a stroke but, after a formal complaint about my lack of treatment, modified to a hypoxic brain injury.  Basically, this means my brain was deprived of oxygen for 15 minutes causing permanent damage.  I had to stand down from Admin duties as my perception of reality was different to an uninjured person's and I was prone to seeing things.  I was provided with no therapy or rehab to assist me and my online games proved invaluable in measuring how badly I had been affected.  I was half as good as I was pre-cardiac arrest but I thought I could improve with further practice.  Sadly, this has not been the case and I am just serving as a slow-moving target to my fellow players.  Like my daily Scrabble playing online, that I gave up last year, I must step away from the battlefield now and spend my time on more enjoyable and productive pursuits that are less destructive to my battered ego.  This understanding has come slowly and only with the help of Headway, The Brain Injury Association of which I am now a "Friend".

I would like to thank you all for your friendship and understanding as I have fought this personal battle.  However, it is one I cannot win so I must go gracefully.  I am not hanging up the tags, having worn them for over a decade - 11 years this month - but you will not be seeing me in the games servers much if at all.

Farewell.

Hey bro,  I can understand what you are feeling.  I know it won't be easy, but know that we are here for you and just ask if you need anything.  You know I will be there.   Take care of yourself and you are in our prayers.  XI is family for life.

Been here as long as you and I understand what health issues can happen. I have been going through alot in the last 3 three years. Please take care of yourself and your family. PS It's nice you are keeping your tags and stay in touch with us. You were an important part of this gaming family DJ and thanks for your service.

I was very saddened after reading how things have got with your health DJ and as others have said and others will say "You are and always will be a Member of XI (The Family)". Regardless of if you play or not just the fact that you are still here and fighting to be able to enjoy your life is a blessing to us all. There are plenty of dumb shits posting here that need you to tell them to bugger off and more. I hope that some how you are able to find peace and happiness with whatever you decide to pursue in place of your gaming but just remember there is nothing but old fucks like me playing on the COD2 servers and we are all just slow moving targets for each other so if you stop by for a game you might just see lots of easy kills. You have no reason to ever drop your TAGS and I give you my word I won't let anyone ever take them away from you if they are stupid enough to try. Many of us have been through too much watching this Clan grow into a huge loving dysfunctional FAMILY and after 11 years of being a great Member, Admin, Gaming Adversary, Mentor and Friend you have earned the right to retire with FULL HONORS. PS Rugger mismanaged the retirement party funds years ago so all you can offer is our Love and Friendship and maybe a few more Medals LOL. Take Care of yourself and hit some of the boys on your side of pond up for the free beers they will be happy to buy you when they can see you. Peace and may God always watch over you and those you care about and Love. ❤️

@DEEJAYKEG what can I say buddy I have enjoyed playing with you for many years I understand your situation, but hey doesn't mean you cant come in and play around with us! Like @Timmah! said you play better than a lot of the idiots here even with your issues I'm not going to name any @spinpuppy@RobMc@monkie@major-mark63 of the guys as they would probably deny that they stink. lol

But hang in there buddy wish you get well soon stay fit eat healthy and most importantly have a positive outlook towards the rest of your life as this is key to getting better.

Thank you for all the laughter you brought me while playing COD with you
