I feel like I'm trapped in one of those nightmares that are so horrible that you're straining to scream and yell for help, but nothing comes out.

I'm also noticing that lately most of what I've been posting here is really a drag. And for that I apologize.

*hugs*

Don't apologize for posting to your LJ. We are here because we want to know what's happening in your life, and if it's shitty stuff we definitely want to know so we can offer what moral support we can.

Thanks Phnee. I just get tired of all the substantial stuff I post being some variation of whiney dreck. But, then again, everything *IS* some variation of sucktastic right now...

Interesting. For what do you apologize, exactly: that it's a drag, that you posted it, or that you noticed? Integrity takes courage. It's certainly more real.

You haven't forced anyone to read anything. Everyone reads what they want here of their own will. You have no obligation to entertain anyone, even if that is all they for which they were here. I think us LJ people are here, for the most part to give testament to the things that matter, even if those things are hard.

Would a fake Footle be useful to either you or those who read you and take an interest?

I can't imagine that the people who know you or care would be happy to read your words and hear that you are experiencing the kind of pain you describe, but I think most would be less happy, if you posted a false front and left them in the dark about the things that are really on your mind.

I hope you keep finding inspiration and courage to accompany your smarts and creativity. If you are feeling trapped, I hope you are finding a path to a place you'd rather be.
