I Don'T Need The Stress

A 3-post collection

Sunday, Plague Day 20, Extra Stressors

Things have been piling up for a while. Capt. S is in hospital and there's complications. I can say no more on my blog just in case hateful people in her life decide to do horrible things.

Wedding arrangements, Outaversary arrangements, trying to hold my tongue about interpersonal bullshit for Beloved's sake. It's all a heap of straws on this camel's back.

I have Post Covid Cough. Fun times. The steroids I'm on should fix that. [Should is not is, far too frequently in my book] But also I have some lingering tremula. Shuddering and shaking like a little wet dog. That interferes with many things.

Mostly including strength checks, but I find my way around it. Thanks,

Who else is having this problem?

I work with submissions and asks, literally on a daily basis.

But lately it seems like Tumblr is trying to kill my blog by being an inaccessible mess.

When I use a submission, my USUAL way of dealing with it is editing it in my in-box and then posting that sucker. Except I can’t do that any more.

NOW, when I use a submission, if I edit it in any way, the post button ceases to work.

NOW, I have
