So dreamwidth is important and good for my mental wellness, but my reading page had gotten to that point of "too overwhelming to actually check it regularly." I did a pretty brutal reading page purge, which I need at least for a bit until it's a more regular part of my routine again. No hard feelings intended, just, brains why are they the way they are I don't even know?

I understand entirely. Brains happen and you do what you must to take care of yourself. *offers snuggling cats*

I'm not usually here much at all anymore, so it's pretty weird that I even saw this, but. You know. I saw this and wanted to say that I totally understand. Different paths in life and all that. I wish you all the best!

My household had to set up a filter for me because I spent eight months whimpering that I couldn't handle my reading list, it was overwhelming.

Now, I can successfully check the filter at least every two days. (It isn't that I don't want to read everyone's posts! My brain just cannot fucking handle it.)

So yup, definitely understand the purge.

I hear you. I haven't been able to keep up with reading lately and recently did the same.

I'm actually really glad to hear that (although now that I am checking, I am also glad, selfishly, that you didn't purge me). But mostly because people keep talking about how dreamwidth is a dead zone these days, and I'm really happy to hear that for some people it absolutely isn't. (It isn't a deadline for me, either, but it's been years since I felt like I had to do a purge.)

I go months without being able to check my reading page at all, and I only have maybe 5 people who post regularly, so yah. Brains. Good to take care of them. :)
