Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
My Emotions are Less of a Mess, Now I'm Starting to Move Forward
My mother died a few years ago. My father, a man I had never seen cry before, started breaking down in sobbing tears frequently. In order to, I dunno, be strong for him or something, I kept it bottled up. Most of the weeks after were spent by me in a daze.
Now I have insomnia, I ache all over, and when I'm not deeply sad everything is just kind of hazy. My memory is screwed up. I've only got a little while left to square away my schooling. I'm paranoid, and small things keep irritating me, and seemingly minor things set me off.
Last night, I did something terribly stupid and immature on another forum, and there was the slight possibility of getting an ISP complaint. I squared away the problem, and have received no notifications regarding it. But I barely slept that night I felt so terrible. I still feel scared about the complaint. Which brings me to my point.
I keep overreacting about things as a way to release my emotional strains.
I'm a mess, and I don't know what to do. I've heard I should try therapy, but the idea of revealing so much about myself makes me uncomfortable. Just writing this out is a challenge.
