Thanks for the comments and support, everyone. I really appreciate it.
After talking the issue over with a few people, I’ve come to a semi-decision- or at least come up with a plan I’m happy with. I’ll say no more about it, as I’m sure it’ll be very apparent as it unfolds (not any time soon, but whatevs). Suffice to say, I’m a lot less afraid, at least for the time being.
