Early last year I left a news post saying I needed time off, and I guess I still do for the same reasons.
It's hard to be a part of this place when my own world is.. not where I'd like it to be. It's hard to write unbiased and helpful reviews, when so many personal conflicts haven't been resolved. Also, I'm still pissed off that I lost money commissioning art work from some users here, I've had a lot of deeply personal things stolen from me through my adult life, not risking losing another dollar to members here, sorry.
All I can say is, thanks for your responses and concerns. I've read comments left here on my page, but 'My Feed' says 109, and I know if I click it, I'll never know where I left off unless I start counting and scrolling.
So, eh, leave me alone to lurk while I try to get some kinda life set up for myself. Might be easier, even exciting for young people to remake themselves, start over again, but at my age it's mortifying.
Best wishes y'all
