Briefly, the rheumatoid arthritis that I suffer from is now making life so difficult for me that model building is becoming more and more difficult by the day...that in turn affects my depression, and so it goes on. The worse the RA becomes, the more the depression sets in. It seems to be a vicious circle for me, and even though my medication does help, it cannot control it.
It wasn't an easy decision to take, believe me, but I feel that I shall only fail in my duties towards the AMS committee, and to you, the members, if I try to continue as I am.
I have told Nigel that I'll be available should any problems arise with the forum and the website, then when the domain titles become up for renewal, I'll sign them over to whoever takes over the posts.
I would like this opportunity to thank you all for the support you have given me with the forum, and on a more personal note, I thank you all for the friendships I have made over the years...I shall treasure them all.
I wish you all well for your future projects guys, and I hope you will all continue to support the AMS and the forum.
Regards and regrets,
