Please read read Moose's post in the general Social Chat under "I'm feeling good about....". He needs our help.:hug: He sort of buried his problem in there I think. I posted to his post but I think he needs to hear from all of us.:(:(

02-01-2008, 11:43 AM
Ditto what everyone else has said

WE LOVE YOU (((((((((MOOSE)))))))))

02-01-2008, 11:48 AM
:hug: Moose :hug:

02-01-2008, 11:51 AM
what is it you always say? "A great big, Moose sized hearty hug" or something to that effect... I say it right back at ya Moose.

You really cheered me up last night in Chat (until my internet suddenly went down:eek:). How about we all try to meet up again tonight (shh, dont tell my husband I am with another man) We can make fun of Kay and her animalistic diet.


02-01-2008, 11:51 AM
Moose, :Wave-Hello:

Forgive yourself and go on. Hang in there!

02-01-2008, 11:54 AM
Most of the time, I don't feel that beautiful (and I certainly wasn't last night in chat), but whenever you greet one of us that way, it always makes my heart smile. You have a huge heart. I wish nothing but the best for you.

02-01-2008, 12:10 PM
Several months ago I was tightly caught between a rock and a hard place. A very wise man said "retreat, regroup, and reload". ;) That is my advise to you my friend.

I know you can beat this. Will it be easy? No, but a lot of people are standing here with me, and all of us are standing beside you. :grouphug: We will help you get through this.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. {{{Moose}}}

02-01-2008, 12:18 PM
moose I love ya dude. U make me laugh everyday.
Your a special person.
and remember that too moosie.....

02-01-2008, 12:30 PM
I agree with all the ladies when they say you make their day by calling them beautiful.

You are such a big part of our MS family here. You have pulled me out of my dark place quite a few times without you even knowing it.

Thank you for that. As you can see we are all here for you:grouphug:

02-01-2008, 12:36 PM

I posted under general social chat :grouphug:

Is today a better one?

02-01-2008, 12:49 PM

I want to 2nd this. :hug:

02-01-2008, 12:50 PM
I also posted under 'social chat'....I had no idea folks were still over there! This place is soooo big! HUGS FOR MOOOOOOSY!!!

02-01-2008, 12:53 PM
Haven't even read your thread but know that everyone always has your back.

02-01-2008, 01:00 PM
Moose is da man simple as that.:Bow:

02-01-2008, 01:03 PM
Moose??? (whispering) How's your head this morning? Tough love here: I HOPE IT HURTS LIKE HE!!. LOL.

I read your post and to be honest didn't know how to respond as the feeling I got was that you drank the cheap wine and eventually posted. However, this morning may be a different story for you.

I do hope that you woke up and realized all that you do have going for you. You have your wonderful sons that love you and need you more than you can imagine. You have made such an impact on many with your kind words and advice. You have a wonderfully positive attitude. You have lots of fans here that love you more than you know.

So, pick yourself up and focus on the above. Things may seem like they are caving in but God will never give you more than you can handle. It's when we lose confidence in Him and ourselves that we faulter - such as you did last night. But that was only 1 night out of the rest of your life.

Hang in there!:hug:

02-01-2008, 01:06 PM
Just to let you know, you were one of the first, if the THE FIRST, I responded to with a "thanks". I agree with the rest. You are such a special friend.... it's so obvious to us!!! :winky: Whatever is up.... a big prayer has gone up to the big guy...just for you! :)

02-01-2008, 01:07 PM
Moose, I posted in your other thread. Pick yourself up, dust off and start all over. Choose not to beat yourself up, choose life and all it has to offer. Your an important person to so many here. Don't give up, lean on your friends here.

02-01-2008, 01:07 PM
Aw Moose :grouphug: Just know we're all thinking about you.

02-01-2008, 01:19 PM
We can make fun of Kay and her animalistic diet.

I bet our Moosie ain't chicken to eat cuy.

in Latin America, there are paintings of Jesus and His disciples dining on roasted guinea pig at the Last Supper:



"The Last Supper" By Marcos Zapata, A Master Quechua Painter
Christ And The Apostles Dining On Guinea Pig, Papaya, And Yucca,
Washed Down With A Glass Of Chicha

if it's good enough for Him, it's good enough for me.


Moose, come on down, supper's a-waitin!

02-01-2008, 01:55 PM
I always knew that Jesus had guts :D

02-01-2008, 02:28 PM
Moose everyone fighting an addiction/vice falls off the Abrams Tank now and then.. just have to brush the sand off, pick up your rifle.. and get back on.. ;) its not the end of the world you will survive this minor setback :)

02-01-2008, 06:29 PM
I also posted on the other site, and I agree with what all the others have said here Moose!

Sending you hugs from Australia. :grouphug:

02-01-2008, 06:43 PM
Hugs and prayers are still coming from Toad Hollow, too!

02-01-2008, 07:20 PM
Thinking of you Moose!

02-01-2008, 07:32 PM
Take our hands my friend,
We wish to help you along.
Just knowing there are all of us
can help to make you strong.

I know life seems unfair right now
and sometimes gets you down.
But know that we are here for you.
We'll always be around.

So set some time aside,
and together we will walk,
down all your troubled pathways
for it helps sometimes to talk.

As you may need some time
for now to be on your own,
Know, we will be here waiting
while your spending time alone.

I guess I want to say
that I hold your friendship dear,
and if you ever need us,
just reach out because WE'RE HERE!

Come on man. Group hug :grouphug:

We love you.

When fighting any addiction whether it's over-eating or over-drinking good programs know people will fall off the wagon. You just have to get up and try and again. It's the ppl who stop trying/stop fighting that have the problems.

There's this song by Sia...it says, "throw away yesterday. Today is a brand new day."

You have given great advice in your posts in the past. You are needed. We need you. :hug:

02-01-2008, 08:40 PM

You have always been one of the brightest stars of our MS community!

I only hope that you are lifted up by all the love that is being showered on you!

Take care!


02-01-2008, 08:48 PM
waiting on pins and needles :p to hear you are feeling better!

Sent ya a PM!!!

Write me anytime...you are safe with me!!!


02-01-2008, 09:55 PM

You've been there for us so take our love for you and fight those demons. It's our turn now to be there for you.

Sending love and prayers your way.


02-02-2008, 05:38 AM
Thank you all so much. This wasn't the reaction I was expecting. I had been awake for 36 hours or so. Fell asleep around 2pm yesterday. Just woke up around 5am.

I slipped. I fell. The wall caved in on me. However I look at, what's done is done, and I have to move forward now. I gave myself a 'standing 8 count'. Now I'm ready to fight again.

Thank you all so much for the PMs and kind words.

Moose is gonna be OK.

02-02-2008, 09:18 AM
Hip,Hip Horray for Moose:Dancing-Chilli: We all love ya.

02-02-2008, 09:53 AM
Moose ~ So glad you got some needed rest and ready to move forward. Wonderful to hear from you!!!:) Don't ya just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE :hug: this caring community.... I'm in awe!

Hugs all around to all the kind folks!


02-02-2008, 11:00 AM
Moose, so glad you are picking yourself up and getting on with what has to be done!

Be well, our friend.

02-02-2008, 11:38 AM
:grouphug: So glad you checked in...sounds like our moose is back!

02-02-2008, 12:00 PM
Moose is back! :grouphug:

Betcha he could barely breathe from all those hugs going out! Hang in there hon, today is a definitely a new and brighter day.

02-02-2008, 01:03 PM
I don't know you, but I just read this thread, and the thread where you posted originally. I just want to be brief and let you know that I am rooting for you. Yesterday is in the past. It is gone. Today and tomorrow are what we have control of! You CAN do this.

All the best,

02-02-2008, 01:09 PM
I knew you would pick yourself back up - your are leader and you had to do that!!!!

Love ya!!!!

02-02-2008, 09:24 PM
Hey Handsome.:D (((((((((((((Moose)))))))))))))

02-03-2008, 07:20 AM
Hey Moose,

I just read this post - just wanted you to know that I'm thinking of you. None of us are perfect - well, I know a few people who think they are but we know better, huh?! - and this is just one of those times where you pick yourself up, dust yourself off and keep on keepin' on. Doesn't mean you're a failure, doesn't mean you can't try again - just means you're human - like all the rest of us. We all trip up - and we all trip up on different things. As long as you recognize you tripped - and get up and start over again - you're heading in the right direction. Life's hard - lean on your friends. We love you and are here to help. :hug:

02-03-2008, 12:12 PM
Good to hear your update Moose! Keep that picture in your wallet OK?

02-03-2008, 12:38 PM
Hey Bud ... was just checking in ... and I missed all of this - sorry about not posting sooner!

glad to hear that you're doing okay - hang in there ... we-be-here-for-ya!!;)

02-03-2008, 10:03 PM
:hug: Moose, more hugs sent your way. Glad to hear you're feeling fortified!!

02-03-2008, 10:33 PM
Moose...thinking about you. It's tuff, no doubt about it. But you know what you need to do. Now do it :)

You've got two little men counting on you.

And we've all got your back :grouphug:
