Most of you were unaware that I was recently hospitalized for about a week and a half because I’d been struggling with self-injury, suicidal ideation, and had a breakdown on a weekend trip I took to Las Vegas. That was why accounts/creative works took so long to get validated/published. I’m still struggling after the hospitalization, especially with the new medication they’ve given me which takes away a lot of my ability to concentrate or really care much about anything. Today is the first day I’ve not spent the first part of the day confused and unable to give more than monosyllabic responses… and not really because the medication eased up.
Just trying to explain why I’ve been really, really slow on responding or even publishing things people have sent me. I hope that it will be cleared up with my appointment with my regular psychiatrist next week.
I also want to say that anonymous users can add their creative works and or articles/essays/opinion pieces/etc. to the site without registering. I thought about it and felt that a lot of people who do may not want to associate themselves with the site or be a regular member might very well want to be heard by other self-injurers and other people who want to support self-injurers. When you add something it goes into a queue so I can make sure it’s not something hateful or containing photographs of self-injury/thinspiration/purging/drug use.
