It is with great sadness and heartache that I have to inform you that Ange passed away last saturday.
Ange was a long time member and was always active on the forums giving out advice even when she was the one who needed support. Those of you that knew her will know what a lovely, caring, understanding person she was.
Ange was such a good friend to me, she gave me support if I needed it and gave me laughs when I needed them too.
You're at peace now Ange, you won't ever be forgotten xx
I'm not sure what else to say right now but if anyone has any words then please feel free to share them.
Such sad news. I didn't know Ange super-well, but well enough to know how kind she was. I recently wasn't online for a few days and she noticed and PMed me to check I was alright and then listened to my woes and I was so grateful and touched by this. This is just one example of how lovely and supportive she was, even when she was struggling a great deal. She will be greatly missed here.
Rest in peace Ange, and my thoughts are with you Rob and her family and all those who were very close to her.
We may not see eye to eye, but we can respect each other's opinions and find the truth in them.

we might see each other as imperfect humans, doing our best. ~ Jodi Picoult
We never spoke recently but she did help me several years ago and I am greatful.

Please do not pm me without permission as I find getting PMs very stressful.
Ange was always such a warm, supportive, beautiful person. She gave wonderful advice and support. She supported me through a recent crisis and I will always be so grateful. I was so shocked and saddened to hear this news. She will be dearly missed.
I have been expecting this news for a very long time now and so I read this with mixed emotion.
Although expected it still comes as a shock, but knowing Angela like I did I am glad she is finally at peace.
I knew Angela very well. We got chatting on here many years ago and became friends. I'd go and visit her with my dog, she'd come here and we'd go for walks and cook and have lovely weekends together. We became very close and I loved her dearly.
I was with Angela the day she got sectioned for the first time and took her to the hospital with her mother. It was the saddest thing I've ever done seeing the doors lock closed.
I visited Angela while she was inpatient and we got to spend some time together when she was allowed escorted and unescorted leave. We always had a laugh and talked a lot about food and mischief, (mostly about doing a runner and going to get wasted together). I'd bore her to death with my tales of bacon and she'd look at me like I was mad. (I know you liked it really Angela)
Angela loved fun and being naughty and regardless of her level of sedation that devilish look would always appear followed by a big grin and a silly face. I will always remember that look.
Angela was extremely intelligent and bright and a really lovely girl but she was tormented by her demons. Sadly those demons would always find a way of getting the best of her and I saw her suffer like no one should. For someone who loved life so much, her desire to self destruct was so strong and so very sad.
In the end I found it too hard to handle and my own health became affected. I decided to end contact just over a year ago. It was an incredibly hard decision to make. This was to preserve my own sanity and health and not because Angela was a bad person in any way.
Angela genuinely cared about others but more so she cared about animals. Her dog Reuben was testament to her. He is lovely and cheeky and funny and bright, just like Angela.
I do not know the circumstances of her death but I am glad she will no longer suffer.
Rest in peace cheeky chops ;)

I didn't know Mikey was a member for so long. She was generally pretty upbeat relatively speaking - never seemed conspicuously overwhelmed by anything - until a few months ago. I meant to post in a thread she made some weeks ago but then lost track of it.
This is heartbreaking. I did not know Ange very well personally, but saw her around a lot and she was always so supportive to other people. I was just thinking of her as I'd supported her on a recent thread, and just found this.
I know a lot of people on here appreciated her support and loved her dearly and I am sure she will be missed. My thoughts go out to all of you; take care of yourselves.
Oh gosh. I am so sad to hear this. I didn't talk to Mikey much but I have followed her threads recently, I know she was struggling a lot but I had so much hope for her. It's heartbreaking reading the last post she made.
This is incredibly sad. I didn't know her personally but I have seen her around over the years & she was obviously a lovely & caring, fun-loving person who will be missed by many here & I'm sure elsewhere.
My thoughts are with those who were close to her - as previously said, if anybody is struggling then I/we are here to offer support.

I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle.
But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."
