real-life update

Very overdue. Here's a basic overview of the last few months:

- moved to Pittsburgh in the middle of August for school
- started school the end of August; had a panic attack in my first class on my first day, but managed to go to classes the rest of that first week
- went to Dragon*Con, came back with a cold
- was unable to get to class for about a month; finally checked myself into the psych ER because I wasn't eating, and wasn't getting care since I didn't have a doctor yet; after some insurance company drama, I spent two nights in a partial inpatient program before returning to my apartment
- began attending an intensive outpatient program, which consisted of group and individual therapy and medication management
- went back to school for three weeks, and was doing pretty much fine, but then fell apart again; formally withdrew from school, with the intention of returning in the fall due to prereqs and stuff
- had another breakdown after Thanksgiving, which lead to me losing the job I had managed to get after withdrawing from school

Since then, I've finally found a doctor here in the Burgh, and we're starting to try to find an appropriate drug cocktail to get me functional again. It's...not pretty, but I'm still here, and I'll take what I can get.
