Calgary!

Wow! It’s been a while since I published my last blog. Though I have a good excuse, I moved to Canada! Of course, this is not something that happens overnight; it has been in the works for quite a while. But to finally make that move and start a new life in a country far …

Mental Health is Not a Competition!

Mental Health is Not a Competition!

There are always two sides to every story and the same counts for my blog. Recently I learned that there is another side to mental health blogging. I wouldn’t say a scary side but more a worrying side. It doesn’t happen too often, but some people are comparing my mental illness to others, and frankly, …

The Journey Continues! A Recap of 2018

2019 The journey continues! But before we continue let’s do a recap of 2018. “It’s gonna be one hell of a ride,” that’s what I wrote last year and looking back it definitely was. I spent most of my time developing our game Insurgency Sandstorm to get it ready for release later that year. Game …

Therapy Intake; The First Step!

It has been a while since my previous blog was published, but I’m still alive and kicking 🙂 I thought why not do a blog about my therapy intake session because it’s something you don’t hear or read much about. What is it like to start with therapy and what went through my head? To …

Blank Screen! The Responses

Blank Screen! The Responses

I am sitting in my chair staring at a blank screen… For the last two months, I didn’t have much inspiration to write a new blog. Sounds like a good reason right? If it was true, but to be frank, it was more the doing part that stopped me from updating my blog. I already …

Depression; The Dark World

Depression; The Dark World

Depression doesn’t care if you’re rich, poor or successful or anything in between; it can hit anyone at any time. For me, it was hard to accept this at first. I turned my hobby into my job so how can I ever be so unhappy that I want to stop existing? When I get depressed …

Anxiety; The Mountain

Anxiety; The Mountain

What if? I asked myself that question a lot. Walking down the street, talking to a stranger or someone I know, traveling to another country, making phone calls, sending a message, drinking in front of strangers and many more situations… They quite often start with the question “What if I do something wrong?”.
