After attending the funeral of my beloved grandmother yesterday, RL got me back the "right into your face" way. But EF isn't gone. I spend a good amount of time rearranging the pictures on my wall, reading the conbook and watching photos online.

I came home to find by basement flooded. Nothing life-threatening happened, but I lost a lot of stuff - some of it which I held very dear, such as old convention photos and stuff. I could salvage a bit of it, but not nearly everything. I'm doubly depressed now.

Oh dear. I was so happy for you that this Con went without big personal trouble like broken cars or teeth-thingies. And now this. You've my empathy on the loss. I know how dear the fandom and therefore those stuff is (was) to you and therefore I have some ideas about how you feel but more likely it's even worser then I can imagone. Feel a paw of empathy on your back, when you feel for it...

possitive! no con-cruds! THO the longer nights, lots of walking/running around and alcohol and dances and stuff felt like some sort of con-crud when the adrenalin went back to normal levels and the body felt the abuse :P

negative...
PCD hit me like a sledgehammer in the back of my head on my way home i just started sobing and allmost howling at berlin tegel airport.
lots of nice people offering me tissues tho^^
and i still feel down, all tho i'm keeping at bay, for now, by doing a lot of photo and video-editing from the con^^

I packed my full PCD into the EF-Sunday, which had seen my crying in tears like I haven't done for years... not the best way to end a convention, but gave me the possibility to get back to emotional neutral during the Dead-Dog-Night :) (Thanks to Reesa, Loriana, SibCrow & Mendra here)

Now I'm back at work, and although my psychological levels are back to boring normal, my body isn't: bad headache for the first day (needed to go home), even worse back pain for today. ConCrud a bit different, I guess.

But I'll manage. And I'm looking forward to the next fur activities. And all the photos and reports. And so should you :)

Well, I still have PCD after these postcon-weeks. It was so amazing... and now I'll have to wait for next year... To be honest, when I was on the trainstation, I almost cried a bit.

No PCD whatsoever. No time for that.
After the con it's car-unloading, inventory-counting, printing, collecting, packing, shipping, checking and reminding payments due,
restocking, handling returned shipments that where not picked up, keeping books, balancing accounts, lots and lots and lots of emails, ...
oh and moving the store's office while the taxes are due again ....while I'm at panicking anyway.

I felt like having some sort of pre-pcd already on sunday even though I had extra day. But lot of people were packing their stuff and leaving, I felt so bad knowing it's end now :( But then I had super nice evening meal with friend of mine, went bed early and still had change to chat to many furries on monday and I actually felt really good when on my way to airport :) When back home, I've been busy with work and stuff so no time for real pcd, fortunately?

Hi,

my second con after Anthrocon 2011 to attend, and I'm deeply afraid. Afraid that my body's and mind's solution to counteract future fits of PCD may be to become a severe & irrevocable case of con-addiction. I'm already feeling it coming to me, bookmarking confuzzled, hanging a 2012 calendar (uhh, when's EF18 scheduled btw? need to ask for leave) racking wikifur for more info and other cons, commissioning a suit, hibbeldyhibbeldyhibbeldy aaargh.

I loved it, next thing to be in heaven. My con-crud consisted of a nasty cold.

cu next con

heh, this is my first european con, and i think im as vunerable to PCD as after AC.
im not shure when or if i can get to a con, so that adds to the vunerability part...

but when having 1 or 2 furs around, i feel ok :)

Well my first con was Eurofurence 13, and I never really got the PCD thing.
What I did get was the fantom tail syndrom.
Walking around for a week with a strapped tail to your waist, just gives you some strange feeling that something is missing when you get back home :P

The only cure for PCD is to look forward to the next convention.

I couldn't agree more with Suran, the only cure for PCD is: Go to another con!  ;D

Haha! I've had that same several time.

One gets so used to that weight waving from side to side that after a while it actually feels weird not to have it :)
