Thanks everyone who commented with support on my last post.
Just typing things out sorted some stuff out in my mind and made everything feel a bit more organized and less overwhelming so I started feeling better after writing it and from reading comments.
I’ve had a number of instances now in the past few months where I made an impulsive post here that I later deleted. I really want this blog to be less about in the moment freaking out and instead more looking at things about myself with some emotional distance.
Since I’ve had some instances where those messy emotion things have bled over into this blog they clearly are lacking a good place to go. Isn’t compartmentalization great? I get really jumpy about more ‘this is what is going on right now’ posts, because I think they make me more identifiable.
Would people be interested if I started a vent-y whine-y emotional blog that is password protected? I think I will also use it to tell about some things I’ve had to omit from here because I didn’t feel there was a sufficient way to disguise them to protect my privacy. There are a number of posts here where I had to leave out layers of complexity, because of my privacy concerns.
This new blog won’t replace this one, it’ll just cover a different area.
If so comment and I’ll make one and email you the link/pw.
edit: So the new blog is made. I’ve been sending out emails with the url and password to people who have commented.
I’d love to be able to read the other blog. It helps when I read stuff that I’m going through from someone else. It makes it so I’m not so alone.
I’d like to read if you’d allow me.
I find the vent-y whine-y emotional stuff pretty interesting. :-)
I’d also like to read if you’ll allow me.
i’d like to read if you’re comfortable with that. the emotional whiney vent-y stuff is what makes you human. :)
I’d like to read it if you’d let me. :)
I’m also crazy psych major trying to stay anon on the web. Love reading your blog and would like to read your new blog. oxo
I’ve been reading your blog for a while now and care about what you have to say. If you’re comfortable with it, I would also like to read your other blog.
I’d like to read about the….less analytic side of you as well ;-)
I read this but I guess I didn’t post. I’d definitely be interested as your experiences are so i n t e r e s t i n g and while I think we all have similar experiences, yours are especially unique, which I love.
If you let me, I would read this as well if you made one.
I’ve been reading for awhile and find your blog really interesting and relative (I’m a psych major too). If you’re okay with it, I’d love to read your other blog as well.
I’d love to read.
I would like to read the other blog if you are okay with it.
I have never commented here before, but I’ve been reading your blog for a while and find it very interesting. I’d love to read your other blog too :)
I relate to so much of the entries on your blog. I too have some whine-y, crabby days. Although I don’t ever comment on your blog I do like reading it. I don’t feel so alone in my journey.
I’ve been reading your blog for a good while. I wouldn’t mind reading the other.
I’m a psychology student too, and your story seems to have some similarities with mine. I would like to read your other blog if that’s okay.
I’d be interested in reading! long time lurker…
I would love to read it too
if I may
I managed to lose the link……
send it again?
I’ve been reading and relating to your posts quite often and
though I do not know you, I would love to read the “vent-y whine-y emotional blog”
of yours. =]
I’d like to read your new blog (:
I just found this blog, and although I’m a year late I’m hoping you are still posting on the other blog. I’m not sure if you’ll ever see this comment, or if you are still blogging but if you are I would really like to read your new blog. Thanks. (:
Hey there. Thanks for the interest. I’ve gotten very concerned about who reads the limited access blog, as I see more and more how small a field this is. So I’m not sharing access to anyone new right now. If I change my mind though I will let you know.
Hey! I’ve been reading this blog for a while, and I relate to so much of the stuff about self harm and depression. I’d really love to read you password protected posts. Don’t worry, I really have zero interest in stalking you. I’m just curious to hear more about your experiences. Can you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org? Thanks.

Hey, I found this blog almost two years ago (it’s wonderful), but only recently have I gone back and read through everything in here. I’ve been having a lot more personal issues than usual lately, and it has helped me gain some clarity into what options I may have since I’m not sure I can sort out things appropriately for myself anymore.
I know you had said you stopped sharing access, but if you have, or do change your mind, I’d like to be on the list.
Regardless, I really hope you keep Tales active :)
