Illustration for article titled Mea Culpa

(People are upset with me using stock photos, so I’m just going to send photos of my actual geographic area. You are looking at Mt. Diablo. On a clear day, you can see all the way to the Sierras!)

I want to issue an apology to the community. Some people have felt that I’ve been abusive of the GT community, and I do not want to dismiss their feelings.


I have an anxiety disorder. I am on prescription drugs, and I am in treatment for three hours a week - two hours with a psychiatrist and one hour with a psychologist. I am getting a side job to pay for therapy, because the expense has become overwhelming.

Some community members have felt hurt that I do not promptly respond to comments on some of the posts I’ve made regarding my state of affairs. I want to address that. Writing a post about my feelings and situation takes a lot of effort and energy. I then become very anxious about responses and about revisiting my own expressed feelings, so it could be days before I look at it. It could be days still before I’m able to respond. Please do not take that personally. That does not mean that I don’t cherish the support and respect each and every comment I read, no matter its tone. If this is unacceptable, perhaps I should no longer post on GT about personal matters. I do not wish to be rude. I would appreciate some direction on the matter. Thank you.

Again, I apologize to anyone whom I have offended. I never meant to be hurtful. I am so sorry.
