Could it be, really? A decade?

If I were writing from my laptop, surely Iíd wax philosophical on time. Alas, a decade has passed since I first became a member... and you know, Iím on my phone.

Would you believe it? Iíve changed careers and moved cities. I got diagnosed and was medicated for years in my mid 20ís. Lost a career, lost health care, life demands changes and have been in medicated for ADHD/depression&anxiety for about 4 years. These last two have been... strenuous. Iím here because I need to gather up courage to seek professional help & medication. If youíre reading between the lines, although in my life Iím manifesting as doing alright... Iím pretty ****ty. I recognize being here before and know what will help. But, Iím feeling overwhelmed to do it.

Iím looking forward to browsing posts again and maybe making one or two good friends. The last time I was here I was fortunate enough to make wonderful acquaintanceships (some I see are now moderators or are still moderators!!!), a long term pen pal, and one real life forever friend.

Iím happy to report that this is a much shorter, less traumatized introduction than my first... a decade ago. Good God.
