I know that I mostly used this LiveJournal account for fandom activity, but kept my personal life to myself, but I have had meaningful conversations with many of you and for that reason I have chosen to make a public post explaining my sudden hiatus.
The final weekend in August, in their trip back to their home from my grandparents' house, my parents' car was struck by a semi-truck and they were both killed upon impact. The passing of my parents was very sudden and abrupt, and dealing with it has been very hard. However, after some grief counseling both with family and on my own, I am ready to emerge back into life.
While the stresses of coping with this loss have been great, both my therapist and I came to the conclusion together that I need to get back into what makes me happy in life. Wedding plans are no longer on hold, though it breaks my heart to think of my father not being able to give me away, and I am also returning to fandom, among many other things.
So, I ask all of you to please be understanding if I seem very distant and reserved. I am trying my best to get back into my optimistic way of life. I look forward to re-emerging into the Glee fandom (I have just caught up on all episodes), as well as some others, that both I have found and I am open to being suggested.
Lots of love,
