I don’t really have much of an intro story to share this week. I tried thinking up something good, not for a lack of newsworthy topics to discuss.
The truth is that I just went through a brief but intense depressive episode, and that threw off a lot of things over the past week. Sure, life isn’t all productivity, but it still feels bad when you can barely get by doing almost nothing tangible for a week.
Things are getting better! I have an amazing support system in place, and I am grateful for them every single day. My number one piece of advice for everyone, not just those with mental health issues, is to strengthen the social support systems that you have.
So that’s it. No grand ideas here, but there don’t always have to be. Enjoy some links, and see you again next week before my vacation.
If you made it this far, why not share this newsletter with a friend? Or share with me some of the things that you found that you liked this week. Either way, I’m thrilled!
