I just want to say i am leaving Factacular for awhile due to personal reasons, i wish to thank those concerned for their friendship during my short time in the group, i am friends with some of you on Facebook and wish to remain so but if you feel the need to delete me then that is ok. Thank you once again xx

This has happened before.

It's up to you Helen. Factacular members can be a rough bunch.

But if you thought we tried to force you out, nothing could be further from the truth.

We are a site of idiots. All knowing and arrogant idiots, but idiots nonetheless.

If we made your life in Factacular untenable, that is our fault and not yours.

If you could reassess your decision, we would be appreciative.

But if you feel it has to be your choice, then we wish you the best.

I seem to have missed something here, Helen hasn't said her reasons were anything to with the site or its users.

Whatever it is Helen, good luck, I do hope that things aren't too hard for you at the moment, and I hope to see your cheery presence here again soon.

Since posting my message about leaving Factacular i have sat here and done alot of soul searching about my reasons for leaving and i dont mind sharing my reasons with you all. I have a daughter who is coming up 25 and she has a undiagnosed Autism and can be very difficult at times to the point where i have to be careful what i say and do. Recently my son and his partner and baby came to visit me and i took them out for lunch and my daughter got jealous about this and refused to communicate with me and not let me see my grandies. This caused me to become extremely down in the dumps. We are now slowly trying to patch things up. Unfortunately when i got down i also got down about my game play in Facta and felt i wasnt good enough to be in this group with my low scores and letting team mates down. Anyway the outcome of my soul searching was telling myself to "Get Over It", dont be a quitter and keep trying. My life is all about me now!! So i guess you all have to put up with me!

We are not that bad. Just challenging and not always politically correct.

To walk away from us would be a mistake cause family is pretty tough to come by and the one thing we are is family.

Not saying we are exact family OR perfect but we are better than nothing.

Factacular may not be the best solution in the entire world, but we are better than nothing.

Helen, my heart goes out to you. We are dealing with Autism in our family too so I think I know some of what you are going through right now. Only a handful of people outside our immediate family know. This is because we found very early on that there are many ill-informed, narrow-minded people out there and also no end of misinformation (and disinformation) about an already poorly understood condition.

Here's hoping that things will look a lot brighter for you very soon.

"So i guess you all have to put up with me!"

The sub-text of the family that is Factacular.com.

Welp, it's done me right for over 10 years so what the hey.

If nobody has already done so, welcome to our happy, disguntled, smart, not-as-smart-as-you-think, well-meaning, insulting, arrogant, introverted, extroverted, mouthy, pushy, cowardly, brave yet ultimately adoring and loving community.

It can take years to work us out. But if you have the courage, it's worth the trip.

;-)
