Hello, my name is Jason and I am dying from kidney decease.
A short while ago the Doctor's confirmed what I already knew and told me there were no treatment options available to me, and all they could do was make me comfortable as nature took its course. I have no definitive timeline, it could be weeks or months, but it would be nothing short of miracle if it was longer.
I've taken a bit of back seat in moderating terms because of this news, in all honesty, for much of the time my head is not in the right space to be refereeing peoples ... squabbles.
I wanted to post this, as, although I will hang around for as long as I can, at some stage I will vanish, and I will not return, and that could be at very short notice.
A few things have been arranged with the mod team, but here I am, saying Hello it's time to say goodbye.

Gutted to hear this, we've had our differences of opinions over the years on the old forum but i always respected your thoughts & opinions, i have no words mate I'm just so very sorry to hear this, your a top man, i can't begin to imagine what your going through i just wish i could heal you.
Were all hear for you on this forum, sending you my love & prayers.
Life itself comes with a built in death sentence. But an early check-out card is the ultimate bummer. My father was given one of those due to arteriosclerosis - and despite them amputating both legs, quadruple bypass on the heart, and then, one of the slow moving cancers, he soldiered onward. I think once my Mom got taken out by an aggressive cancer and an experimental treatment that backfired and killed her, my Dad finally gave up and let his own milder cancer take him. I think that if my Mom had still been around my Dad would have made it another couple of years. But my Mom made it to 70 years and Dad to 75 despite all that.
I guess its not my place to say anything, only officailly being on the forum a couple months...but f**k man. It is sometimes easy to forget everyone on here is a real person and they all have tragedy and a life beyond doctor who. I am so so sorry and have always respected you totally. I, and everyone on here will miss you so much
Absolutely terrible news. Thanks for all the wonderful work you've put in here, Jason, this place we all love wouldn't be the same if not for you. Here's hoping that you're around to share it with us a lot longer than expected.
