Hello, friends!
First of all sorry for the unplanned disappearance, it took me by surprise just like it did you - I got catered off to a mental hospital! I'd known I had some disorder or illness for years now, but could never get a proper diagnosis (I've been trying various forms of therapy but not getting it right), until now - I had a huge episode of mania and it turns out I have bipolar disorder. Serious stuff, but I'm glad to finally know, and to be getting the right treatment! I was actually lucky all this dramatic stuff happened because many people don't get diagnosed until they're twice my age. Yup, 27 is considered a young age to be diagnosed at with bipolar disorder.

Anyway, you guys stuck around with me and my erratic posting schedule for several years and we had some great times thanks to your consideration so you deserve my honesty and full disclosure.

Also if there's one thing I'm gonna do in life it's mental health advocacy. Even if I accomplish nothing more than spreading some awareness here and there I'll still consider myself to have made an impact. So I've been telling people both irl and on-line what happened to me and what I'm ill with instead of coming up with some bullshit about having had the flu or whatever.

Lastly please take care of your own and your loved ones' mental health as best as you can!

As to the community's future we've had a great run thanks to your contributions and I think 150 is a nice round number to end on. I'll leave the comm up so you can post more of your writing anytime and of course read the old works. I'll also try to finally finish that maintenance I've been trying to do, but that's been eluding me due to my worsening health up to this point (apologies for that, I did add some tags here and there, but I do know there's updates still needed). This might of course take a while as I am catching up on many things in life after that extended stay at the hospital.

Unless someone else wants to take over as the mod/prompter, consider #150 our last prompt and after that it's an endless bonus round.

Once again thanks for all our precious time together!
