So you know when you sprain a wrist or an ankle, you put a brace on it and stay off of it as much as possible, so it doesn’t get worse. Common sense. Now imagine I did just the opposite of that, but with my mental health,
Right after I started working on Geek Space Wine to get ready for its launch, I started going through a “dip”, which is what I say when my depression comes a-knockin’. There were definite clues, like intense imposters syndrome and fatigue. But I was so determined not to let it interfere, I just ignored it. Like a wound, it got worse, and after the adrenaline of the launch faded I realized just how deep of a hole I was in.
So I have some posts written, most of which I hate, and my distracted editing is just making them worse. I refuse to put up sub-par content just to keep posting content. That’s why this is not a hiatus. I plan to be very active on social media still, but actual blog post wise? Bit of a delay. I hate this but ignoring it this long made me sink deep, and I need to take it slow a few days and reconnect. So no posts ’till next weeks, guys! But I’ll be talking to you all a lot on Twitter and Instagram. I’m also trying to focus on creative hobbies, like writing and photography. I’m also learning how to take pictures of myself… ugh.
See you Monday! <3
