As someone whose sole source of income comes from games (for the past two years), I feel I’m under a lot of pressure to produce something that will be able to financially support me. My financial situation has deteriorated quite badly, which has in turn affected my mental state. I am also a very inexperienced programmer, which tends to bring me down when I fail to grasp things that are simple for others with computer science backgrounds.
What Made A Difference
My Cipralex prescription has helped with the anxiety. Being able to vent on Twitter also helps sometimes.
