Quiet Time

Just a note to the chat channels I frequent and those who cross-over from those to reading this: when you see me in a chatroom I will have "Silent" attached to my name.  I won't be talking in main. Period. I won't be priving anyone either but will will try to reply to any priv contact initiated away from my end. I don't know how long this will be. Could end tomorrow; could end months from now. It's nothing to do with anyone and everything to do with everyone. My nightmare induced lack of sleep; my slip back into the wrong hours, away from daylight and my apparent inability to deal with my perceptions rationally - all these are central. You might think I am retreating. Maybe I am; maybe I am folding in upon myself for a time. Maybe I need to. Maybe I don't and this is the wrong action. I just feel - if I don't interact in ground  group contexts then I can't cross signals and spin into stupidland. Next to leaving again, it's the best solution I can think of. Think of my presence as a sign of life - so you can relax. Or think of it as as a sign that I'm fighting the embedded trust thing in the best way I can think of atm.

Sure thing Katie. Spending some time losing yourself in other people's chatter is a good thing (I think?). When you feel like it, speak up. If you don't, that's also fine.

*snuggles* It's good to see you around, even if you're silent. It's a good way to get your feet re-wet, as it were. *hug* And of course, if you ever need anything -- someone to lean on, someone to vent at, or someone just to shoot the shit with -- you know where to find us all, love.

Hrmmm. Indeed, but you seem to miss the catch-22 in that proposal :)

You basically say, give us a shout if you want to talk - just after I've said I won't initiate any talks, but I'll work to respond to anyone who contacts me?

Heh. So that works well. *blinks*
