Re: Account Status Tracker-The only place to announce an abs

Sat Aug 11, 2018 1:47 pm

You guys have probably figured this out by now, but I am not really in a position to be on EU.

In case folks are worried about me, it's not all bad; but it's not all good either.

In a nutshell: I have been rotating medications a bit trying to figure out what works for me and what does not, and it's affected my life in unforseen ways. I just got married a bit back and this is part of taking my health seriously, and actually figuring on being around for my wife in ten years.

I am having immense difficulty concentrating long enough to manage EU. This has gone on for weeks and months and is unlikely to change.

It's odd, as I'm on Adderall, but I've also stopped (medically instructed) taking a drug called Paxil that I've been taking for years. This is probably what is doing it, as it is a very..... difficult drug.

The tapering has caused me some issues.

I value my reputation on EU, and I love the people I've encountered here; I hope to be a lifelong part.

I will remain a diamond patron and support the site.

All of my characters are to be placed in long term storage, as I have the slots.

I am assigning myself a voluntary eight monthish ban from EU.

What this means is that I will not be returning, even if I feel 'better' until the end of the quad after Christmas. I believe that is somewhere around February.

I will figure it out when the time comes. TLDR: At least January.

The reason I am doing this is to make absolutely sure that I am in good health, and able to make a commitment to the site when I am back.

I feel this is the best way I can make sure that I am in good shape and not going to let EU down, and be *REALLY* certain I have my s--t in order when I come back.


I hate having to write this because I really do adore a vast number of you, and consider this place to be my 'online home'.

Okay... so winning the latest round of "Let's Throw A Monkey Wrench Into Eric's Time" is my grandmother (who I live with and help take care of), who had been laid up in the hospital since Thursday but came home yesterday and needed a good amount of TLC. If last night and this morning are any indicators of what's to come, that's still going to be the case for several days to come.

I'm still going to try and post, of course, but it's looking very likely that my online time at home will at best be carved up into very small chunks for the next little while unless the physical therapist sends her to a nursing home for proper rehab.

Absence: now through Tuesday, August 21st at the earliest.

This affects the following:
- Rufus - Rifts/Templars
- Chef Icky - PW/Adventurers
- Rampart - HU:CS
- Townsend - Rifts/GIRLS GM

To all my players, GMs and E.U. friends,

I am afraid that I am unable to participate for the immediate future. Despite finishing a long-course of strong antibiotics, I keep getting sick, even just as I was about to post again. It seems likely I will require some kind of surgical solution, I'm not sure what that will entail exactly but will find out in a few days.
Apologies for lack of communication, I have been very ill, I have recovered some but still suffer from vertigo and migraines making posting nearly impossible.
So, for now, I should be considered on hiatus, probably until next quad. Please put my characters in storage, and hopefully some enterprising GM prospects will take my games over.
Hopefully I'll return soon enough, thanks for your concern everyone.

If I'm not back in two weeks, I hereby authorize the use of my EP to purchase the one needed inactive slot and put my characters on hiatus. The Templar will need a new AGM in that case.

Kat Porter (GIRLS)
Prudence Kellogg (Eurasia)
Tyrannosapiens Rex (GM sans portfolio/AGM for Templar)

If I'm not written out yet, belay that.
