kamen6859199dTell me again about the lines of coffee.
hinst845199dIf your health is now cured then you can try writing code for $$$. The client will provide you with ideas 📈
knobfloortowel121199dMaybe do advent of code, the past years are also available
IntrusionCM11031199dMaybe find some other hobby that helps nuking the stress.
From my experience, the dumbest thing I did after having severe health issues was trying to _force_ myself to keep on working.
The collateral damage was pretty heavy, hence my advice to just stop when it seems unbearable.
Next time I won't trash the thought of flipping burgers or wiping arses at a senior residency :)
donuts24328199d@IntrusionCM @hinst well as far as I can tell I'm going to be retired in disability... Hopefully.
Sort a chronic disease but now it's getting really bad... Had a surgery and need another.
I'm basically playing video games and watching anime all day now and not sure if I'll ever be motivated again to code at all...
IntrusionCM11031199d@donuts *hug* and that might not be the end of it.
Maybe you come back to coding, small tasks.
Maybe you come back to a counseling or guiding role (e.g. as a teacher / mentor).
Maybe you don't do coding at all.
You cannot loose experience. You might not be able to put in practice all of it - but you don't loose it.
Sounds like a pep talk, but it's the rational truth.
The big enemy in the room is wether the grieve of seemingly loose sth that dominated a large part of your life and your health issues takes its toll or wether you turn it around.
Stop wasting time thinking about what you loose, find a hobby that's satisfying.
