Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t blogged anything this week, except for one post last Monday.
The storm clouds have rolled in, and I’ve got a serious week-long case of the Mondays. Things have been going wrong for me just about everywhere I choose to look.
I flubbed up a simple series of tasks I was supposed to do at a certain time in my off-hours in Second Life, and as a result, I landed up ending a working relationship that had started out so well, which I destroyed through my own thoughtlessness and stupidity. (I’ve already apologized to the person involved, and removed myself from the project. I won’t write more about it.)
But I see that single trip-up as a warning sign. Everywhere I look this week, I see evidence of my difficulties in moving ahead. I’m really not very happy with myself right now, and I know that my depression is colouring everything with the darkest of colours.
I guess what I am saying is that I need to give myself some time to admit that not everything is O.K., that I need some time to rebalance my life and refocus on the essential stuff, and that I need to go forth and battle my depression (again). So I’m taking a break from blogging for the next little while. How long? I don’t know.
Don’t worry about me; I have plans to go for dinner with my best friend tonight and he’s sure to get an earful. I will have supper with my Mom like I always do on Sundays. I have a real-life social support network full of people who love me and care about me, and I intend to make use of it to get back up on my feet again. I have absolutely no plans to do anything drastic, so don’t worry about that.
But I do need to take a break from blogging.
You’ll all be the first to know when I do come back.

All my support for you and I hope that very soon you are back and very much improved and with new projects. Good luck and hugs.
Take care, Ryan. good luck.
I dunno about this SL project but the blogging part was the best there is, in this very niche subject. And you kept your independence. It was a lot of posts in few time, if you add online time, must have been exhaustive. Be well and proud.
Take care of you and we will be very happy when you will be on your feet again! Best thoughts and much love.
Hope you’re doing alright Ryan. We miss you! <3
Hope you have a good break and just enjoy the people around you. Social media and blogging can wait.
We all need a break and a recharge . Have yours and we will all still be here when you are ready to get back into the writers srat again x
