    Devrant missed you too. Do you have problems, or are the problems having you?

    New baby!
    And vacation! (Sort of.)

    I left for a few reasons, mostly burnout and medical. And then distancing myself because I didn’t want to be all negative and push everyone away. That and taking a break from tech is always nice.

    If you’re wondering about medical:
    Worsening sickness (long covid | ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome). I’m exhausted all the time, and it gets much much worse with effort/activity. Standing for ten minutes is often more than I can manage. Mental effort isn’t as taxing, thankfully, so I can still work for short periods. But some good news! I’ve found a few things that help, and I have two (!) healthcare people who vouch for me. So things are improving here 😁

    And my cute little girl helps keep me going.

    >New baby
    Heyyyyuaaaaa!! Congratulations πŸŽ‰πŸ₯³πŸŽ‚πŸŽˆπŸ€©πŸͺ…πŸŽŠ

    Take care.. all you need is rest physically, and mental downtime to recover and rejuvenate.

    Find a hobby that makes you fill joy. Avoid responsibilities.

    One thing that I observed in myself and you (based on our conversations), is we are loaded with responsibilities and nobody to share those with. That leads to burnouts and breakdowns.

    I hope you find pleasure and peace soon.

    I missed you too.

    About the baby, congrats. I won't go with an obscene amount of cute emojis to present myself as if I was good at social communications, just congrats :)

    About standing and five minutes, this reminds me of when I had depression, and one dipshit who thinks he's a psychiatrist and probably lied his way into a lab coat somehow, prescribed me aripiprazole. Bye-bye going outside, going to get groceries is like hiking when you're past 40 kilometres already, but with no emotional reward. Muscle pain.

    Awful period of my life.

    Welcome back! Congrats on the lil one!

    @AleCx04 Thanks! πŸ’œ

    The CFS is worse, but I’m better able to manage it now. I know what signs to look for that tell me when I’m overtaxing myself, so I collapse less often. I still collapse and am bed-ridden a few times a week, but that’s a significant improvement from every day.

    I knew people got debilitating illnesses and the like, I just never expected it to happen to me.

    But I won’t let this get the best of me.

    @Root My wife and I had a boy. I didn’t look at devrant for 8 months. I was off work as primary caregiver as my wife finished her degree. It is crazy how hard having a baby can be on a woman’s body. It has been just over a year now and she is back to normal health except skinny because the little one is sucking her life force.

    …that feeling when you wish other people could enjoy your baby as much as you do. It makes me so happy when people enjoy his antics as he explores the world. I hope you enjoy watching your little one grow as much as I have my own.
