I really like the mix on bear.community. I'll admit I've muted a couple nice guys whose timelines were indistinguishable from what I used to see on Facebook, but for the most part we're socially maladjusted bears who wouldn't mind getting together for a hug.

Kinda like the IRC bear community I was a part of in the early 90s, except there were a dozen of us within 150 miles then, making bear hugs that much easier to organize. I suppose the way things are, it's just as well we're not all closer.

Well, as of 8pm last night everything's closed here except the essentials... and it's actually illegal for my wife to leave the house now, due to her compromised immune system. Might even be illegal for me, thanks to my diabetes. Which we didn't mind at all, until the supermarkets all discontinued their delivery services at the same time.

Life in limbo. Sure would like to acquire a new, mature slave to take my mind off of... everything. (And free him from thinking at all, while I'm at it.)

Getting in my morning sniffs and licks. Always a great start to the day and weekend! Day 5

(In my case, this has led to a persistent state of low blood sodium, which affects things like gait, short-term memory, appetite, and makes both my nausea and my muscle pain worse. Adding more salt to your diet actually makes the problem worse, as do at least 2 of the meds I take. Hoping that pushing more protein will help, but this morning I'm still having tea and crackers, because that's what my stomach will tolerate first thing.)

Physical side effects of depression: I may have "tea and toast syndrome", which happens to elderly shut-ins who don't or can't cook and just eat things that are easy to prepare but lack nutrition. I'm only 50, but in my case, it's tea and crackers. I've been using them as a self-soothing mechanism since I was literally 5. This year I've needed a lot of fucking soothing and can't order in anymore except for one expensive (but gluten-free!) Venezuelan place. A word to the wise, @ActualRecluse .
