I've "quit social media" again which means I'm back on mastodon because it's basically my methadone.

I switched to two spaces 10 years ago because the last 4 companies required it. But after reading this, I'm gonna switch back to tabs. Now to break a 10 year habit.


I have also worked with people who cited spaces as an A11y concern. It's one of the reasons I continue to use tabs.


Feeling a lot better this afternoon. Maybe that's light at the end of this tunnel.


From a dealing with depression advice post:

> Any “friend” who resolutely believes that your depression is because you’re lazy, because you’re not trying hard enough, who blames you for not bootstrapping out of it- that friend needs to be cut off."

But what if that friend is your spouse? 😔

Felt better on my walk. Back at my laptop and miserable again. Oh and someone is reporting a bizzare bug with our Android app yay FML.

@AskChip ha! I think it's also why I hop from job to job a LOT. i think i keep hoping to find something else that makes me happy. i'm finally starting to recognize that the job isn't the problem. I've had major depressive disorder since my teens you'd think I'd have figured that out by now! ;P

@thomasfuchs thanks. I have another friend who tried Ketamine. My last psych doc discouraged me from trying it, but I stopped seeing her so maybe I should think about trying it again.

I should probably try to start working on my Gopher server again. That might be fun.

I've also tried a couple different therapists and stopped seeing them because neither one seemed to be much help. I know I should probably keep looking and try to find another one but it's pretty hard to research another therapist when you can't even make yourself get out of bed.

I should probably increase my meds again but the side effects SUUUCK and I'm so sick of them and I've tried almost all of them.

Fallen into depression pit again. This week has been awful. Trying no alcohol, exercising, getting off social media. Can't make myself work. Wanna sleep. Spouse is sick of my episodes and thinks I'm a lazy mope. Have so much to do at work and not keeping up. Yesterday I slept most of the afternoon instead of working and worked a little at night to try to catch back up.

when you're messaging with someone and kinda wanna do something else but you have to wait for them to break the contract by not responding to something you say rather than the other way around so you win the conversation

If your design system does not have accessibility and inclusion at its core, start over.
