News of members and former members: by Deb (Devine 63)
« on: February 15, 2014, 11:50:50 PM »
I finally heard from Tony (I came I saw I fell over) today.  He hasn't posted on Ouchtoo since Feb 2013 and I have heard little from him since then either - I gather he sank into another serious MH episode from the symptoms he showed beforehand.  I was relieved to get a phone call, but it suggested he remains pretty unwell, I'm afraid.  However it is good he has gotten back in touch.  He won't be online I don't think though.

 Wanting to let people know about this made me think maybe a thread of news about friends and former members might be good: for example Mabel from the Dominican Republic remains in fairly regular contact with me, as does Becca...

Maybe there is someone who keeps in touch with you?

regards, Deb

For me whatever message board I am using tends to be the hub for friendships and if the meet up location goes then the friendship tends not to last. I still care about what is going on in the lives of my American friends but life changed so much since those good olde days we just cant go back and do it all over again.

I am happy enough about chatting to people via email etc but I prefer being amongst a group of people reading and posting on the board.

I hope Tony starts feeling better soon.

I have tried to Contact Burpy for a few years now. We used to speak daily then she sank into deep depression so contact got less and less.
Also Abe who last I heard was very poorly. I never even had my usual Xmas Card for either of them for a year from Abe and 2 from Burpy.
I am assuming Their time had come.
Anyone with news of them I would so like to hear even a PM would be great.
Thanks Frances.
You need to give love to receive it.

I remember Burpy well.  She left our board to go elsewhere that she preferred didn't she?

Wobbling Wilma and Purple Cat are both alive and kicking on Facebook.

Quite a few people who did not like the idea of using Facebook when BBC Ouch Too closed have ended up connected to other old Ouchers on Facebook. I am there too but dont post much. They get pretty chatty and have a laugh around together so my Newsfeed quite often makes me lol.

I looked up Wobbling Wilma on facebook but I could not find any postings for the last couple of years.

I have a nagging thought that I did see something from Wilma a few months ago, is it possible that she closed one FB account and opened a different one?

That's strange as I was about to ask if anyone had any news of Burpy!   Glad you have news of Wobbling Wilma.

I've heard that Yvette is very ill.  It seems that she has not been right since her hospital stay at the beginning of the year.  She has another large ulcer on her leg that refuses to respond to any treatment.

Hugs to Yvette  >hugs<
