content warning: depression
Some of you already know, but I wanted to let you all know why I haven’t been active in the Fairphone community for a while.
I have a severe depression. It all started in November with a short depressive episode and me realizing that I have social anxiety. I started therapy, which ripped open lots of old wounds, then corona came and with it social isolation. Additionally there were blows of fate about twice a week.
It’s getting worse every week and when the corona restrictions started being lifted I just got lonelier and lonelier, because people started having less time for me. Also my first impulse because of the depression, is to isolate myself even more.
I miss my friends, especially the great people from Fridays For Future. But I also miss the Fairphone community a lot.
Currently it looks like I’ll be admitted to a psychiatric hospital soon. Once there I’ll have even less contact with the outside world for a few weeks, but atm it seems like there is no way around it.
I hope I’ll get the energy and motivation to come back soon. Looking forward to reading up on all that I’ve missed here.
I hope you all are feeling better.
