Y'all.

How do I address this? I'm seriously mentally ill. I don't try to hide it, but I find that it doesn't *appear* that way most of the time.

I have a very effective inner dialogue that results in me being almost completely functional.

But I struggle—I struggle SO much.

The amount of energy it takes me to be functional is SO GREAT. I have (an) intellectual disability/ies on top of trauma and anxiety and depression, which don't make me incompetent, but it changes the way I interact with my responsibilities.

I need accessibility. I don't get it. So I waste SO much of my energy making my brain do things it's REALLY bad at doing in order to survive.

That's a vague way of explaining my extended silence on Patreon.

I'm excited to post more on here but it might take me a while to get into the groove of things.
