I'm feeling really sick right now, and I can't tell how much of that is from actually being sick and how much is just withdrawal symptoms. Same with what's going on mentally. Guys, if you can avoid ever taking benzodiazepines, then do. At least don't take them for more than a week in succession. Because eventually you will have to withdraw, and it's going to be hell, and you may be left with some lingering symptoms afterwards, possibly for years. They are no way near as innocuous that doctors can make them seem.
Anyway, withdrawal (plus things that may not be directly withdrawal-related) have put a stopper on my creativity. I'm pretty much stuck in survival mode right now. I'm thinking of posting some of the random stuff I wrote during the last two years. It's not Aren Bestiary or Spec related, but hopefully some of it may be interesting to you. Or not, I don't know, I'm not really heavily invested in the stuff I have laying about, I just don't want the gallery to remain completely dead for the months to come.
Hopefully by summer I'll be over the worst of the withdrawal and if I can somehow avoid any further catastrophes (as unlikely as that seems) I may get back to creating new stuff again. But unfortunately there's no way to speed things up, so this long dry patch is unavoidable.
