Mental Chains – The Gauge of Death

moardepression

No, it is not.

I had a mild panic attack and a whole lot of depression this week. In fact, I’ve been in bed for the past two days (yesterday I don’t think I even got up to sit at my computer until 5 PM). It’s incredible the amount of energy drain currently going on. And I don’t see my doctor until next Tuesday.

Ugh. Slow medicine is slow.

I’m not sure my upload schedule for the next couple of weeks as I will be adjusting my medication again. Things are not working as they should. But I am alive, and I will write when I can. I’ve been distracting my mind with Starcraft 2 co-op mode and Monster Hunter World, both of which I would love to review.

So yeah. I can barely keep my eyes open right now. And yet my mind is buzzing away, daring me to think about negative things. Sucks.

Backstage Tales – Coloring Book

I have been sick over the past couple of days, and combined with the Fourth of July, I’ve taken some time to rest and get over my head cold/sinus infection. Despite this, I may or may not have burned myself trying to set off four fireworks at once. Happy late Fourth of July, everyone!

Unfortunately, my plans for writing a game review yesterday or today both flew out the door. So instead, I wanted to share a few images of something I’d love to put together someday, even if it would never sell in any meaningful quantity.

Presenting What If Worms Could Whistle: The Coloring Book! Feel free to download, print, and share with your young ‘uns!

En taro Tassadar!

I was thinking most of the book would be illustrated in color, but a few pages at the end would be blank for kids to color. I have no idea if anyone would even care to let their kids read and color in a book about big-eyed worms in funny costumes, but it would be fun to try.

Anyway, a regular review is coming up Monday, and it’s one of my favorite PC strategy titles that always calls me back to play again and again. Stay tuned!

Hey, Where’s Parry?

parasaur

True fact: the name Parry (or Perry) is perfect for all duck-billed anythings. Except for Howard the Duck. He’s perfect just the way he… is… *shudder*

Also, don’t tell the kids, but right before I decided to draw Parry, my own Parry in ARK: Survival Evolved was devoured by a swarm of giant ants called titanomyrmas and giant dragonflies called meganeuras. They’re as annoying as their names are tricky to pronounce.

You will be avenged, Parry! I swear it!

“Fun”

bipolar

This week, I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder type two. So while I have more downs than ups, this is pretty much the rollercoaster that is mah life. All aboard the mania and depression train!

A Worm A Day is my attempt to give myself a daily project and some stability while I learn to deal with this condition the right way. I’m not looking for consolation or anything – in fact, if I can help anyone going through something similar and put a smile on their face, then I’m happy.
