Given the health implications of my family, the pressure I feel to not ‘blow off steam’ in silly ways here, the betrayal of another friend, and my own shitty life choices I probably need to concentrate my thoughts elsewhere.
I sincerely appreciate the awesome support, gifts, rumchata, and good nature you happy mutants have given me. I really, sincerely do. @OtherMichael you in particular have been amazing.
But now I get to move on from surreal jokes to figuring out how to save a persons health, not lose our house, and not get divorced.
If anyone needs to get ahold of me, OtherMichael has my deets.
@falcor, while I will un-authenticate, will you give me a courtesy several week ban? I will be back, but I need to get things in order.
If you need a quick check-in with crazy mutants who have gotten to know you but are simultaneously outsiders to your life, hopefully your self-ban doesn’t prohibit you from sending private messages via this system. Running things by others can be a useful technique in tough times.
Same here - this is my first comment for a couple of weeks, although I’ve visited occasionally since then. I went on a spontaneous cycling trip to Prague, almost completely set up the garden for the summer, sorted out some issues with a few family members and project managers and managed to get some more work, which had been a problem. I have a few more things to work on and probably won’t be back for a bit, but @japhroaig was actually the one who inspired me to start dealing with stuff that I’d been ignoring. Good luck over the next while, hope you’re able to sort these issues out.
