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?
Any advice from veterans with synthmorphs and sliteroids? I would really appreciate it, mates.
ALSO! Think my friends would enjoy milk and mashed rice? I would always do it for my resleevings to give the bodies an annaprashana, make the new samsara cycle feel legitmate, aye? Or will they just think it's tacky and imposing of me?
