    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.

    @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.
