I was CLAYRIGHT my name >IS< Laura. I'll be be sticking with Zoey I used to be here a lot. So many things happen. I got away from doing anything enjoyable...found I had Bipolar,PTSD,yada yada. I ended throwing away 100+ 2oz. packs. I bought more than I was using at last and none of it was good. I have had to choose a new name for some reason. When I tried entering Clayright it said that name is taken..duh.. I know it's mine,lol. I hope I can get back interest even a little at a time. Zoey
Welcome back, Zoey. I'm sorry you've had such a time. I know the dark side fairly well myself, so you do have my sympathies. But it sounds like you're heading out of the tunnel and bit by bit you'll get it back. Claying is a great way to help with that. Sometimes if you can even create one thing, it gives you the energy to go on to the next one.
I sympathize with you on the nickname. I too tried to enter my first nickname 'ClayLady' at a site I'd been to often and was told it was taken, yup, by me. After a futile struggle I just added my birth year on it and became ClayLady43!
Sorry to hear your stash went south on you. That's a hard hit to take.
Here's hoping that you can find your muse again and that interest will tiptoe back into your life and bring you joy.
