This post may or may not be read by most people in this community but I felt the need to write it anyways. Over the past month or so, my health mentally and physically has taken a turn for the worst. I don't talk about it a lot because I never wanted anyone to treat me differently or see me any differently for it.
I have various medical conditions that leave me in constant physical pain. I have a medical condition called Fibromyalgia (plus other things) that I was diagnosed with almost 10 years ago. It affects my entire body, not only causing chronic pain but also a hyper sensitivity to any stimuli. Video games have always been a way for me to distract myself from it, but its usually been a lonely distraction, preferring to seclude myself from others.
Then I met the wonderful people in this community and have become friends with many of them. You guys have no idea much you've all helped me without even knowing it. You all always seem to lift my spirits and keep my mind off everything. I know that I may not have been quite myself lately, preferring to seclude myself from large groups and even downright refuse to be around certain people. I just want you all to know that if and when this happens it has nothing to do with you. Sometimes I literally just cannot cope with the stimuli that's involved in being in a large group of people. That's when I only have a select few around me, who are very familiarized with my condition and have grown to know more about it. I never purposefully exclude people out of malice. Its only ever because its what best for me or what I feel is best for the other person (because sometimes I'm an actual bitch rather than a fronting one LOL).
So really, truly, from the bottom of my black heart... thank you. You have all made a difference in someones life, most of you without knowing it. You're all amazing and I'm blessed to know you guys. I love you all, sincerely.
If you want to ask questions or anything I'm always open to answer them.
