Depression, Anxiety and a Creativity Block

*This post isn't exclusive to gaming but it is something that has an affect on my gaming side.*

For about a month or so I've been going through a season where my depression and anxiety have been really bad. And it has put up this very large wall in my mind that I just haven't been able to pass. And it is blocking my creativity and even my desire to be creative. When I sit down to try to do something creative it is like I am all over the place and in the end I never actually truly start anything. And if I do complete something it isn't as good as it could be. In other words: It is terrible and gets thrown out.

So I've just been stuck in this rut. And my mind is constantly racing and constantly empty at the same time. So this is currently the state of my One-Page Adventures and anything else I've been working on. It has even gotten to my play-by-post game that I am in. I just can't seem to function in a creative way.

It should pass. I just hope it will be soon.

Sorry.

  2. Hey, don't worry about us -- be sure to take care of yourself. I can relate to what you're saying -- was in a similar rut for about 4 months. I'm sure it will pass, and let me know if there's anything I can do to help.
