My life is still on hold - after my husband died in October 2015, I'm still semi active as a cosplayer and with the BJD exhibitions. But I'm mostly alone, I suffer from PTSD and anxiety, I have panic attacks and my beagle "Spike" is my new BFF.
I do try to have "fun", and my main survival strategy is reading, because there's still so much to read.
Currently I'm buried deep in the Sterek fandom, and since I'm not able to write anything myself, I feel like I'm using but not contributing. Which I would love to change some day.
