While we're talking about brains, another big chunk of my problems can probably be summed up with the following statement, as provided by [personal profile] valborg some time in the last few months:

"What everyone else thinks of as success, you think of as Not Failing."

Which seems unfortunately accurate.

(I'm not sure what would actually be defined as success. And naturally, Failing is some kind of great and terrible fate which will permanently remove my worth as a human being. Look, I don't know. Them's the rules according to my brain, although I'm trying to get them changed, because they're not exactly workable in the long-term. Or at all.)

Other quick notes:

1. I notice I haven't been answering everyone's comments. Again. I'm both forgetful and periodically stressed by trying to express anything at all to another person. As mentioned previously my brain hasn't been doing especially well, and ability to communicate tends to be one of the first things to go. I'm working on it. (People who've been with me a few years have probably seen about a million of these disclaimers, I know. But there are plenty of new faces about too, so.)

Naturally I'm also terrible at commenting on posts I find interesting, but I'll try to drop by sometimes.

2. Hi people who've added me recently!

I think I'm stealing that quote, because I think it applies here as well. Complete with the unknowing of what actual success looked like and the big scary Failure pit. Do keep us appraised of how you can get the rules changed.

Oo, pithy comment for the incisive win. I'll have to remember that.

Also just to say, I love your Moomin icons so much.
