Thank you to those who sent cards! I received a lovely one with an ibis from someone whose RL name begins with M, but I'm afraid after racking my brain all day, I can't figure out who sent it. Help? :\

Very related: I am still having health problems. I've been to a lot of doctors but haven't found a definitive diagnosis so far, and at this point I'm reluctant to even say what the current theory is, because all previous theories have eventually been proven incorrect, and it starts to feel foolish to have to keep correcting myself. But whatever it turns out to be, the biggest issue right now is cognitive — I'm struggling with memory, concentration, and ability to do mentally strenuous tasks without becoming totally exhausted.

There are still rewarding things I can do with my time despite these challenges, and I'm grateful for that, but fandom is not really one of them. I'm trying to figure out a way to participate, because I miss you guys. I can still read my flist and comment sometimes, but I am afraid soon my comments will begin to be met with choruses of "who?" since I have disappeared otherwise. (My gaming friends, conversely, are probably getting sick of the sight of me, since actiony/repetitive tasks are something I am a champ at right now.)

In summary, I am really behind on everything AS USUAL, but I have a pretty good excuse this time!

I hope those of you who are celebrating holidays around this time are enjoying them, and I hope to be around more in the new year, if I can. ♥

I'm so sorry to hear you're having such a rough time! I hope that your doctors can figure out what's wrong and, more importantly, fix it soon. I know how frustrating it is to know that something is wrong, but no one can quite decide what it is. I hope to see more of you in the new year! ~hugs and best wishes!~

Yes, it really is frustrating. Unfortunately it's not the first time for me, so I do hope it turns out like the last time and a diagnosis of something manageable is eventually reached!

Medicine is so scarily dependent on having a diagnosis. I hope things get better.

(And, nope, not going to forget you any time soon. :-)

You are....

home, home, where I wanted to go.

You are strong in the way they do not mean when they say you are strong.

Hello
I saw that you added me as a friend. Care to explain me who you are?

Just a Harry Potter fan. I saw your art in [livejournal.com profile] hoggywartyxmas and thought it was lovely.

If you prefer not to have people friend you that you don't know, of course I'll respect that. But there was nothing on your journal that said so.

I don't have written rules because situations like this happen so rarely. However, a comment introducing oneself to a stranger, and eventually asking permission to befriend, is always appreciated.

In my 13 years on LJ, you're the first person I've run into who felt that strongly about it but didn't say so in their profile, a sticky post, or anywhere. Your response really surprised me and to be honest it kind of stung, so you might want to add a note about it after all, even if it's rarely been a problem in the past.

Sorry for the misunderstanding, and good luck to you in your future fannish endeavors!
