    I just wanted to take a minute to say to my DF family that I will be taking a break from the forums and from theming for a little while. Ever since I joined here back in June of '09, I have literally been obsessed with it! Then my theming life started and the addiction grew even stronger and has actually consumed my life since I started in December of '10. I have put it above most other things in my life and its starting to take a toll on the real world including that Joy and I have called off the wedding and split up. I need to make more time for her and our kids if I'm ever going to get her back! I will by no means completely disappear but will have limited contributions at least for a while. I will not abandon the family I have here though and I hold this community very dear to my heart. I can still be reached on Gtalk but may not respond as quick as I usually do. I will also still be handling my part of the Xparent Tapatalks.
    Hopefully, this will all get better and I can be back full force...though its a long shot at this point. I didn't feel right with leaving you all without first letting you know that I am ok and what's going on. I hope you all can understand.

    Sincerely,

    Ryan Buckner

    Real family first, hope you get things patched up. Thanks for your android contributions. With this shared Droid addiction, I'm sure many of us could take a step back and our families would be a appreciative;)

    Takes a real man to admit his problems and correct them outright.

    You'll always be a part of our family Ryan. Do what you have to do and don't look back. You will be missed my friend. I'm not going to wish you good luck because you don't need it. You will land on your feet. Talk to you soon....

    I never imagined that I would be typing this. Joy and I have called everything off...for good! The final straw happened tonight and I am DYING about it! I also NEVER imagined that we would ever be where we are.

    I had said on my Pandora thread on Team BAMF's site that, if her and I didn't work it out, I would bury myself with Android like NEVER before to keep my mind off of everything. Every fiber of my being hoped and prayed that wouldn't happen but it wasn't enough. We have both just hurt and disrespected each other too much I suppose. I will take a 2 day break from everything to gather myself as I am typing through tears at the moment. For the very first time since I've joined here, I will actually be logging out. But, when I return, I will be back more than ever!

    It really touches my heart that you all came together for me in this thread, PM, and Gtalk to show your support! I can't thank you all enough! I love you all!!

    See ya soon,

    Bro I don't know you from Adam. With this kind of turmoil and drama in your life, the last thing you need is to dive deeper in a forum and theming.
    What you need to do is step away from the pc, put down your phone and get yourself right. If you run and hide from it, it will pop back over and over again.
    and I believe I saw you have kids. You are connected to Joy until they are 18. More reason to get your head straight.
    I think a few hundred (if that) fans of your themeing can get over the fact that they wont be seeing your work for a while. DF does not matter right now at all.

    (of course this is only my opinion)

    Bro good luck with everything, I really mean that. Me and my girlfriend broke up recently and I have been taking it horribly. Take all the time you need to feel better. I know how you feel I have been through tough break ups and am going through one now. I don't know what do to to make myself feel better even and I have done some destructive things. Just relax, and I hope things work our for you. My prayers are with you.

    I'd have to agree with this sentiment regardless of the details. Android could be long gone by then. Take care of yourself and the ones closest to you first. I hope it works out either way...
