Every day for the past week I have come to a point where I’ve had to accept that I would not be able to do any more programming that day. Either because it was getting late or because my brain was fried. Every day I have, with great regret, closed down Visual Studio and Unity3D and tried my best to put my current task out of my head. Every day it has been nearly impossible. I have never been so in love with a job – and I’m not even getting paid for this one.
Sometimes, life just hits you with a brick.
I think most people have probably asked themselves “What is wrong with me?” at some point. It’s a loaded question with terribly complicated answers, and it’s not the one I’m going to answer in this post. I will, however, tell you how I believe I’m different.
Sometimes I want to do things but can’t. Instead of getting anything done I just sit there and stare and fret and feel terrible about myself. What is a lifelong prisoner of anxiety to do? It took a while, but I finally found a few tricks that work for me.
