<#Civic-net public request topic; Author @Packfather> I'm having a problem with this recent resleeving, and was hoping to get some help. The main issue being? I've never been in a synthmorph in my life until now, and it feels ...Fake, to put it into the right words, fake and constraining. It's a slithernoid for dealing with Venus expeditions and I just woke up a bit ago, we're all trying to right ourselves down here and get used to the new bodies, and so far it's been a mess. One of my crew's literally crying, the others are falling over themselves or staying in their cots as they adjust; and my issues are ...Well.
- A lot of muscle memories are biting me in the ass. I try to blink, I don't feel eyelids and it takes a microsecond to remember I'm using optical sensors, I almost feel like I'm asphyxiating with the lack of breathing. Touch feels ...Fake, it's not a sensation, it just feels like I'm being TOLD how this floor feels, how cozy this cot is, told in a monotone, dead-pan ...data way. How do you work around years of organic habit?
- No physical gender: I don't feel comfortable by all accounts, being neuter. As someone who identifies as Male Primalis, without something just feeling present or heavy in some kind of groin area I feel just ...Naked, open, exposed or vunerable. Is this normal to wearing one's first synthmorph?
- Honestly? I just feel Heavy Like half of me is dead, metal weight and I'm dragging myself around like some kind of chore. Does this feeling fade eventually?
