Whenever I’m struggling or stressed (when I’ve been sleeping as badly as I have been this last week, for instance) the first thing I jettison is the effort to maintain an online presence. I drop off Discord, Twitter, Mastodon until I’m doing better.

The timing’s often atrocious, but I’m a natural introvert and that’s the mode I revert to when I don’t have the spoons. I envy those for whom it’s effortless.

If I ever do/have done this to you and kept you hanging for a response, sorry!


@retrohistories Hope your sleep improves - there’s nothing like ongoing sleep disturbance to knock you on your arse. 🤞
