But what I do know is that I’m ready to return. To come back, to get back to work.
I suppose I was in denial a lot of the time, I was lying to myself a little bit about how hard these past 24 months have hit me. My way of dealing with things before 2020 is to dive into work, start a project, and do what I love. However, I got to a point sometime in the summer last year when I realized that I was just going through the motions.
I wasn’t doing the best that I could do, and I wasn’t particularly proud of what I was making. But that was all I could manage. Creating regular content for YouTube, podcast, TikTok, and working as a freelance journalist was just too much for me to handle. Plus I was getting sick, really sick, the diabetes demons came for me hard so I had no choice but to reduce my workload.
I’ve spoken to doctors and other people and I think that I was suffering from a bit of burnout. After reducing my workload and putting myself first things started to get better and slowly my health improved.
