I have been thinking the same thing, his last post appears to be 3 months ago.

Yes. He's alive and well. He's on vacation for a bit.

I've been wondering the same thing lately. You are missed Mr. J-O-H-N! I do understand the need for a break every once in a while. Relieved to know you've been in contact with him and that he's okay. Thank you Faith & Lulu & Tom for posting.

Thanks for the update, Scott. I’ve been wondering where John was for some time. Was thinking the worst. I can’t imagine why someone here would want to harass him.

J-O-H-N did reply to a PM early at his departure. I did not hear he was harassed and only heard he made the decision not to participate anymore. A definite loss though it seems some did not get or appreciate his humor. I for one did very much. I hope he is well.

He doing other stuff ,he said . A man of many interest beyond humor .We used to banter back and forth like Don Rickle .. some people just can’t take a joke . He picked up n the third call yesterday . He said , on the first he was showering with his wife , on the second with his girlfriend . 😂😂😂🥳🥳. I can’t count the times j-o-h-n lifted me up out of the dirt .. He’s my man . Luv this guy .. later ✌️

Good for him to be taking his vacations, how we all wish we were never in this group! We get concerned for fellow warriors and in a way for ourselves. We just want to hear everyone is alive and well. Love you all! ❤️

No I haven't heard from him Missing him too

He has a quality seldom seen

Really hope he is doing well

I was wondering about his obvious unauthorized absence. I thought I might have to step in.... Big boots to fill. Glad he's ok and just being grouchy.

Lulu700 profile image
Lulu700 in reply to TFBUNDY

Not him . He is happy👏😎

Why would anyone harass a brother ?

Karmaji profile image
Karmaji in reply to Lettuce231

It is a sort of reaction to one's state...so you express your anger thru hurting the brother...JOHN should just laugh aloud like Chinese Boudha.........

Come back and make us laugh at the mess we are in...IT is all mind game...

Lettuce231 profile image
Lettuce231 in reply to Karmaji

Yes I guess you are correct, but I still don't get that kind of attitude.

maley2711 profile image
maley2711 in reply to Lettuce231

For someone who may be new to all this and asks a serious question, that person could be irritated but what could be perceived as a flippant reply by John. In fact, quite a long time ago, I messaged my concern.....I think his response was a flippant remark..though I don't know if he intended it as such. Some of us just are more serious than others? I suspect JOHN ran into such criticism from someone else?

Your point is well taken.

However, I still think that "laughter is the best medicine"!

Humor helps us (me) to deal with the serious matters at hand.

Lettuce231 in reply to maley2711

Hi maley2711,

I guess that there are times to be serious and times we can laugh, maybe that's for us to discern. I understand your point of view, it's odd how sometimes for example in a phone text or even a letter, the subject matter can be totally misinterpreted.

I put one on here some months back, about how safe sex is now a handrail around the bed, fortunately is was met well, another day perhaps not.

Take care,

Or maybe it was before I tapered off Z & P! (stopped Lupron a year ago!)

Lettuce231 profile image
Lettuce231 in reply to westof

How have been doing since tapering down the Z&P ? Are still okay without the Lupron, I guess that you are monitoring the monitors, so to speak ?

westof profile image
westof in reply to Lettuce231

Doing great!

My dx (exactly 3 years ago) was G9 but S3. Did meet 2/3 of the Stampede criteria.

Stopped Z & P in January.

Within the past month I've had bone and complete CT scans (along with some new blood work) and no evidence of any mets.

Met with my MO last week (great doc, however, he strongly disagreed with my decision to stop ADT!) and he gave me a clean bill.

However, he said "I'll see you in 3 months". Just to make sure?😟

Lettuce231 profile image
Lettuce231 in reply to westof

What was the reason behind your decision to stop the meds ?

westof profile image
westof in reply to Lettuce231

Good question! In 2/20 my MSK RO looked me in the eye and said "you are not going to die from APC"

He did a great job with HDR Brachy, 25 days of IMRT and he referred me to my MO!

It was then that I decided to stop.

However, MO strongly suggested that I continue Z & P for another year. Agreed.

I posted the following awhile back:

Hmm... So in 2/20 my RO says I'm "cured", however, my MO butts in and declares...not so fast Bozo!!

Miss you J-O-H-N. Come on back.

I saw a comment from him just 1-2 days ago.

His last post was 3 months ago.

Lulu700 profile image
Lulu700 in reply to barrybayarea

Ran off by insults . He is a o k having fun . 🥳👏

I've had several interactions with J-O-H-N over time and came to see his 'humor' as - 'let's not take ourselves too seriously / always look at the brighter side of life' because we are gifted enough to have people who care for us joining the difficult and sometimes awkward feelings that accompany PCa.

I HAVE offended a few people myself through posts - not intending to inflict damage - but sometimes we call 'em the way we see them - and we aren't always going to be right or mainstream.

I'd like to see J-O-H-N rejoin 'hu' - he was different - but he never intended to cause added grief or show a condemning point of view - EVER.

I also note that ALL of my jokes are much funnier - so that strokes my ego with pizzaz !

Come back when you are ready and know that you are appreciated by the vast majority .....

I miss him madly ! So happy to hear that he’s ok.

Lulu700 in reply to Jscjac

Me too ! 😎

There will be no laughing!

Hey j-o-h-n, if you read this, here is a plan:

If memory serves me, its a short drive from where you live on "Looong" Island to the ferry dock at Port Jefferson, NY.

Now, I could jump on the ferry in Bridgeport, CT (short drive for me too) and take the relaxing trip over to PJ. (Hmm... I wonder if they would let me drop a line and troll for striped bass on the way over 🤔)?

We can meet in the elegant bar at the Danfords Hotel (next to the dock) and knock back a few🥂🍸

My treat!!😃

Let me know...

AJ

Hmm... It just occurred to me that this invite may be misconstrued by a few.

So, "Darling Wife of NOW 48 years" has agreed to accompany me on the trip!

And maybe hold my rod , if I'm allowed to fish...💃

If you tell him you miss him he will stay away to mess with you but if you tell him to stay away he will be back in a flash with cloths on I hope, not flashing in the way we sometimes think of it, but you never know about J_O_H_N he is unpredictable. J-O_H_N don't let all this attention go to your head and think your some kind of Star. Have missed you buddy!🍸🍸🤠

J-O-H-N, see how much people like you! It is not easy to earn such popularity. You are a star !

Everyone on this forum has a role to play. Some the clinical trial aspect; some the latest and greatest research; some future research; but only one with the sense of humor that is uniquely j-o-h-n! As a fellow New Yorker ( long islander actually) I NEED your humor! You are truly missed

what happened to J. O.H NHe got trapped by his own..humor...

He discovered his own dark side of ego....

a mind enjoying humor and laughter at dance of life takes all insulting comments as anti humor

So please shed your ego and false sense of pride....and hurt

Humor is living in non duality

beyond all hurts....

just in Anand....

Pick up your humor sharing...
