If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, don’t worry, I’m not dead. I’ve just been distant from the internet for some time now, preoccupied with health, housing issues, finding work, and getting back to finishing my degree.
Despite everything, I feel a lot better than I was before my world was turned upside-down. My diet has improved, but still could be better. I’ve been pushing through anxiety to take care of myself better, and I’m starting to see the results. Not being online all the time helps a lot, limiting my online presence and especially leaving Twitter for good improved my mood and attention span enormously. It’s impossible to realize just how much overstimulated you can be from ads and pop-ups nagging at every possible moment, and with ADHD it exacerbated the effects for me. My legs are still a problem, but exercise has been helping and I’ve lost nearly 30 pounds since March.
I’m finally at the point where I can more or less catch my breath, and it feels great. The future is still largely uncertain, but I feel alive again.
I don’t know what else to say, I haven’t really had any good ideas to talk about, the site has been a bit of an afterthought lately. Here’s hoping I won’t have my soul disappear by getting work and continuing to be a slave to the billionaires that run this shitty country.
