Coincides with World Mental Health Day.

While it has a focus on electronic musicians, could be a great resource for anybody.

That is something I really needed right now. Especially in times like these, I bet lots of people must be facing mental health issues, or is it just me?

Definitely not just you. TBH I'm struggling lately. Had a rough few years freelancing, alternating between doing okay and just being broke. Settled into a new job, my partner lost hers so I was sole earner for a while. Then she got a job...COVID hit, the job went away. Dad got seriously ill at the same time and is now battling chronic, debilitating pain. The industry I'm in took a nose dive so I'm stressing about that. And now our landlady has told us she wants to sell all her properties and we have to move out at the end of this month, and split our relationship across 180 miles after 4+ years of living together.

The upheaval and uncertainty is just killing me. I never thought of myself as someone prone to worry or anxiety but I mean it's literally making me ill right now. All my creativity is gone.

The only thing I've really been able to do lately is manage my workload a bit. When things looked dicey with COVID I took on a bunch of commitments thinking "hey all work is good work". I've just called the last of it off. Even in these times I need and am entitled to time off. Whether it's to try to write, or just play Xbox and drink tea. So I at least have set, finite working hours now.

I've cut out meat. I'm down to 1 coffee a day. I'm trying to smoke less. I definitely need to move/exercise. I noticed in the mental health guide it talked about the benefits of walking. Most of the day I just sit. So that's definitely something I need to address. I dunno. Kinda just waffling.

TL;DR - lot of us feeling the same way. It's been a tough year.
