It's me, your founder. If you're wondering where the hell I've been, here's the long and short of it: in February last year, I fell on some ice while wearing a heavy backpack and effed up my shoulder and back. I was also working so hard on both college and personal projects that I got into a cycle of chronic tendonitis in my forearms. I couldn't continue school because of the pain. By July I had become pretty non-functional, and had to mostly use voice controls to use my computer, and by late August I had fallen into a really terrible depression with a smattering of anxiety/panic. In September I thought, "welp, it couldn't possibly get worse," tried to get myself medicated and start physical therapy, but psych meds are a crapshoot and instead of calming me the heck down they made me into an even more anxious, panicky wreck instead (AKA IT GOT WORSE AND I'M STILL MAD LOL). So I missed out on physical therapy because I was too scared to leave the house and I spent September until December having horrible panic attacks on a weekly basis. SUPER FUNSIES.
Now I'm in two kinds of therapy! It's great. The pain is still ongoing, on and off, but I'm having a good week for once so I thought I'd retrieve my deviantART password and come explain my sorry self. Basically, 2014 was the worst year ever, RIP in pizza my sanity. I'm not trying to make anyone worry and I'm not fishing for sympathy. I have a lot of support, and I'm probably gonna do just fine. I mostly tried to keep my personal crap away from the club but it caught up with me and I think you guys deserve to know what the heck happened.
I ran a tight ship here before my downfall, and I was proud of it, so I feel pretty embarrassed about all this.
deviantART isn't a big part of my life anymore, though, so I may end up passing off the club to a worthy successor. We'll see. I'm trying to return to normal activity. Like I said, pain's on and off... but I'm in physical therapy now so MAYBE IT WILL GO AWAY FOR GOOD THIS TIME.
Anyway... I have something like 7 or 8 months' worth of cleaning up to do. See y'all around.
