So! It came to my attention that at least one person thought I had blocked them on Facebook.  It's not true! I figured I might as well disabuse a few of you from potentially also having that same notion (and feel free to spread the word about this fact).

I actually disabled my Facebook account for a bit, because it was... not really helping out my mental health for a lot of reasons. I don't think my short-form social media interactions add nearly as much to my life as they take away, ultimately.  I can do without the performativity, the politics, and the conflict.  I disabled it around a week and a half ago and checked back in very briefly a couple of days ago, only to find I felt the same way.  I deactivated it again.

Though it is of course your prerogative how to conduct your affairs, I do hope that those of you who would normally invite me to events will consider sending an email (or using an alternate invitation platform than facebook).

I deactivated my Twitter profile as well at around the same time.  For a bit I thought I could move to G+ with the sorts of things I'd normally post on FB, but I decided to delete that too, late last night.

So now, it's just this LJ, which I don't anticipate going anywhere (I guess I've thought about making the move to dreamwidth.  I actually colonized this name just recently in case of such an eventuality). LJ feels and basically has always felt good to me -- like a place where I can be open and honest about important thoughts, feelings, and experiences, without feeling like I need to portray myself in any particular way.  I hope people continue to "live" here, and that friends and loved ones continue to read here.  Even when I don't comment, I'm reading yours too, usually with great interest.

I don't know how long this hiatus will last, but so far, it's meaning that I'm reading books more, and feeling incrementally better generally.
