Well, haven't been on Deviantart for a while, and immediately got harrassed to 'upgrade' my profile. Which I did. And it looks the same. So that was a good use of time.
My long absence can be attributed to many things. The first being my fiance leaving me, and then a string of failed and mentally abusive relationships, leading to a very sharp lack of inspiration and drive to actually do anything creative! Then I finally found a wonderful guy, who supports me in everything, but all the cr*p had taken hold by that point and I was diagnosed with depression, had to leave my job, move back in with parents etc etc. Good news now is, it's a year on since that diagnosis, and I'm off my meds, out of counselling, in a new job (which I love) and doing much better. I'm now a firm believer in admitting you need help, and then asking for it (I should've done it years ago, then I probably never would have ended up in that state in the first place!).
So, why am I awake at 12.24am? Last night I had a horrible nightmare that even after I woke up and then went back to sleep, I was still stuck in. It makes me slightly wary about going to sleep again tonight .... But I have got a late shift tomorrow, and a trip to the gym in the morning, so it would probably be a good idea to try and sleep.
Gaaaaar! What to do?!?!?!?
