State of the Petri
« on: Oct 08, 17, 10:42:54 PM »
Hey Friends,

It is me, Petrichor (they/them/theirs). I have been on a LoA because as of the 22 of September it became incredibly clear that not only had I entered a relapse of many of the illnesses I battle but that I had developed some very scary symptoms to go along with my laundry list of diagnoses.

My treatment team really wants me involved in some positive leisure pursuits - specifically the things I enjoyed before getting very sick. Writing is absolutely at the top of that list.

So I am sort of back.

However, I'm still really sick and in some very intensive treatment for the foreseeable future. What does that mean for me here on BR?

I'm around, but I'm fragile as heck. My presence may be sparse in group chats if only because I don't super trust myself not to suck a whole lot right now.

That being said, I really need to avoid isolating myself so please don't let my silence in general/territory rooms on discord dissuade you from hitting me up if you see my little green dot online. I won't be able to be active from 9 am - 4 pm ish because the programs I am in run during those hours and have very hard rules about cell phone use. I get breaks during which I can answer BR questions and just check in.

So yeah that is - vaugely because this is still a pretty openish forum - what's going on with me.

I love and appreciate this space very much. In the past I've made the mistake of not allowing myself this space when my illnesses kicked up and uhm, quite frankly, that behavior got me here. So I'm down to nerd and word but I ask for patience, and a little understanding if I avoid writing certain topics while I'm at where I'm at.

I'll list my triggers under a spoiler now.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

OK so yeah. Y'all are lovely and if you write those things it's not a problem for me. I just don't want to deal with that in threads I'm writing. They're not all the time boundaries either, but for now it's what I need while I'm doing a lot of hard, feels based work.

I am very excited to be getting back to writing. Thanks to everyone whose been waiting on my words patiently.

Many loves.

mostly i am an absentee parent to all my fictional creations.
sometimes i have inappropriate public reactions by which i am later mortified.
