If you loved me, why'd you leave me

Haven't been posting much outside of fic announcements. Still struggling with being really depressed, feeling like I'm not sure why I do anything, and trying to cope with pain. And it's so fucking hot, which makes hot flashes that have become really intense even worse.

Saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier for the 13th time in the theatre today. I swear that's the only thing that's kept me from driving off a bridge some days. I have been to a lot of movies very many times, but this is a new record for me. That doesn't even count the times I've watched my crappy cam copy. Even with my various issues with things here and there, I've never been as fannishly gonzo as I have been about this one (and Pacific Rim last year, but I have to say, this one's even worse for me).

It was funnest seeing it last week, when I met up with [personal profile] minim_calibre. The second-run theatre was packed, and none of the times I've seen it have had an audience that laughed at all the funny bits, reacted to the big reveals, and just seemed to be enjoying themselves all the way around. Plus it was fun to see it with someone who's seen it as many times as I have -- it's nice not to be judged for my insanity.

I have another vid I'm trying to make but it won't come together. It's eating my soul, but I can't make it work, I think partly because I can't get a decent file to work and I'm using so much different source. So I might make a different vid instead, just to see if I can come at it afresh. I don't feel like it's contributing to the canon out there, but when I get vids in my head I feel compelled to make them.

I also have so many fic ideas to write, but I feel even more like those don't matter. I hope maybe being around friends at VVC might help me feel less depressed. At the very least some of my favorite people will be there, so…

I'm really happy you have that movie to watch, and there is no insanity in enjoying it!!!

Good luck with the new vid! It'll happen!

I'm not going to be able to get to VVC this year. Are you coming in early at all?

You know, I'm traveling with someone who wanted to leave later in the day, so I won't be there till late afternoon/evening on Thursday. I don't leave till Monday afternoon, but I know you probably will be working. Since I fucked up so bad last time I would love to make up for it and meet up with you and take you to lunch or dinner, but I know that might not be feasible. At least now I'm not geting migraines as much as before, so I'm a lot less likely to bail on things.

I'm looking forward to giving you a hug at VVC. :)

I'm sorry you're not doing well, and I hope you feel better soon. Let me know if you need anything. We'd love to see you at Friday dinner again soon.
