I've been dealing with mental and physical health problems for as long as I can remember.
This past week has been more trying than normal. I have asthma, IBS, and several mental health issues but the most prominent being PTSD and Bipolar II. I started out the week dealing very heavily with asthma issues and IBS issues, and then developed a cough I was worried was bronchitis. I was also finishing up new medication, and did not refill it because I am seeming my psychiatrist in two days (a week after I ran out).
The sickness turned out to be more of a chest cold, which I was thankful for, but still put a lot of stress and strain on my body. I slept almost an entire day because I was so sore and tired and could not breathe well. My inhaler was very helpful. I smoked a little to ease some pain, and had a very negative and scary reaction. I was hearing very many voices, shouting, taking, screaming, laughing, etc. None of them were me or anything I've ever heard before. It was overwhelming. But as soon as it came on, it left.
I also began to go through withdrawal of my medication, which I have never experienced before with any other medication I've been on (and it has been many). I had nausea, dizziness, dissociation, irritability... I could not tell if it was my period, or the medication (because my symptoms get worse over my period as well).
It was a really rough week, which is why I didn't make any posts on patreon or ko-fi.
However: I did manage to get my instance up and running for myself! I finished my Code of Conduct (although I may be adding more to it soon), and the subdomain site for stardew.city as well. Despite being incredibly ill, I managed to get a small task done which was helpful. I missed a lot of work, which is stressful, but I think I will be okay.
