Hi all, I'm not sure if I'm in the right place but am hoping to find that online friend who I can chat with, vent with and get help with who will listen and allow me to do the same in return. I have a lot going on and my main support is currently not available, one in a different country and another is dealing with a loss of a loved one. I don't know where else to turn. Is there anyone who can vent with me and we can help each other?

Hey, my messages are always open if you ever need to talk. That absolutely sucks that you're going through something like that and your main supports dealing with those things can't be easy either. I send hugs.

Thanks Beta. I wouldn't really know where to start but you know when they say when it rains it pours, that's how it is feeling right now. How is everything with you going???

I read a really good book last night and my last long migraine of over a month went away by itself luckily though I feel another one coming on which I kind of could tell would happen. Otherwise everything is pretty typical for me right now (I'm only up at the moment due to taking preventative medicine that made me sleep all day yesterday).

It was Rhythm of War by Brandon Sanderson which is the fourth book in the Stormlight Archives series and I just liked it so much because it was really long (1,000+ pages). That was the longest migraine of my life and I wanted to see if it would go away by itself. I hope I don't get another one too which is why I'm taking it easy lately and reading a bit more since that tends to help sometimes, thanks for saying that!

Most I talk to haven't heard of it so that's fine, the series only tends to be known in those who regularly read fantasy. If I'm not ok one of my system members/alternate personalities will essentially be conscious instead of myself so I'll get a bit of a break to recuperate until I'm fine to be active again.
