Sorry for vanishing.
To cut a long and extremely messy story short, I have PTSD and DID (as many already know), and I was tricked/manipulated/forced into a cruel situation which those responsible for knew full well was 100% guaranteed to force a personality switch. It has taken a real daily dedication to furthering myself to gain a sense of control and find balance, but you can’t begin to understand just how far I’ve come because of that. To have this done to me was absolutely devastating. I decided to step back from posting on the forum for a few weeks, but continued to login regularly to continue moderation tasks. Unfortunately, I became extremely unwell, which was when I stopped being able to log in regularly. I haven’t had a cold or flu that required more than a hot cup of tea and a good book to heal since I was a small child. So, when I got sick I just assumed I thought it was bad because I didn’t have anything to really compare it to and that it wasn’t really as bad as it seemed. When I finally went to hospital I was told I’d been having an asthma attack for the past four days, which they claimed was triggered by a virus, and the reason why I felt so exhausted was due to a lack of oxygen caused by my breathing difficulties. I had a couple of complications, which meant another couple of visits to doctors. I really wish I could say that was it, but from there the story only becomes infinitely more complicated and bizarre. I feel better now, both physically and emotionally (err, kind of), but I’m still having to take things really easy.
I’m sure this is TMI for many, but I felt the community deserved an explanation as to why a previously very active moderator vanished.
I’ve already cleaned up a bunch of spam and moved a mass of posts which were in the wrong area.
