Early night.

I'm at Novacon.

For assorted complicated reasons I'm very tired, and very much not disposed towards mixing at the moment, and therefore I'm having an early night, sorry. Today I've been forcibly reminded that, despite the good techniques I have to handle them, bits of my history occasionally leap up to hit me in ways which are totally disabling, and that it's then quite clear that I'm still very broken emotionally. And then, a few hours later, I'm forcibly reminded that some other people are just as broken as I am, and find certain phrases or situations just as triggering as I find others. Either episode, separately, would have been quite draining, but the two in combination have completely wiped me out. My emotions are likely to be a little fragile over the next day or so. My apologies to anyone who was hoping to spend time with me tonight: I should be sociable enough once again tomorrow.

I've had a fanzine article commissioned (actually, more than one, but one of them has a deadline of today) and it's going to be late, sorry. But I'll finish it off over the next day or so and send it off to my editor. Once again, my apologies.
