About LimboHovering above the threshold.
A state of neglect or oblivion
Limbo is no place to be, as any voyager should know. Usually it appears like any accident, whereas in reality you could be having a breakdown and are just realizing it. If you sense that things aren't what they seem, they very well might be. An especially potent trigger activates an episode of limbo, indicating that you may be entering a period of coping and grief or transitioning from "rock bottom" to brighter waters. The analogy of "the bends" and depressurizing from one atmosphere to another fits well, though in a psychosomatic sense than actual nitrogen bubbles bursting your cells.
>So what does it feel like?
Uncertainty begins to permeate through your perception, thoughts are foggy and restless, and there's the feeling of unease in your bones. Your mind may feel like only a ghost and your body starts working overtime to calm your senses before they overload you. You could feel drained, emotionally and physically. Reality might seem to be losing out to your imagination and dreams. Nightmares might manifest when the sun goes down and breach your safe havens. Your projected thoughts might be lurking right around the corner ready to take you where you think you deserve to be. A guilty conscience will begin to punish itself. You might become paranoid, you might become scared, you might become an animal, you might be a machine. Dread can describe it in one word, and a gauntlet as another. Depending on your own brain chemistry and schema, you might start seeing things that are or aren't really there. The depths that this particular author has been to have horrified more than any night terror because there is no real waking up.
It's possible that you, dear Voyager, will never see the darker side of your own imagination and will remain wholly ignorant of the depths and heights, content on the planes you graze on. If that's the case, you must be truly blessed to lead a life of so much happiness. But, maybe now that you read this you might be curious . . .
If you are ever experiencing limbo and it seems to be gaining the upperhand, let it. Stop trying to bargain with the void. It'll take you where you need to go. Just remember that it is only a mind state that you are experiencing and it shall pass in due time. And please don't hurt yourself.

The little monsters inside of us are tired of not being heard.
Welcome to DysintrepretedWhere everything on the fringe gets put into place.
Welcome to the newest blog manifesting itself before your very eyes, "Dysintrepreted". Everyday we'll be trying to summon the greatest and latest components of Pandora's box for your personal amusement and wonder. Picture, video, sonic radio feeds, glimmers of the future and of the past, philosophy, and everything else worthy of your esteemed viewership will be brought up front and center. What we give you is up to your discretion to incorporate into your life. This mission is yours if you choose to accept it, and ours if you decline. But know that only the premium will be brought to you, and as this website slowly evolves towards an inevitable vague conclusion we hope that you'll become just as large of a part of the experience as the content provided. Maybe one day you'll find yourself where you belong too.
If our transmissions ever frighten or confuse you, or if you're ever redirected to a vortex that you are unaccustomed to, or you find yourself one day lost in a nightmare with no way out, perhaps you should close your eyes, click your heels together three times, say the magic words and drink the potion to wake up. Hopefully that will work.
Fly on Voyager.
