This isn’t an easy decision for me to make, but I’m going to have to step away from the podcast for an extended length of time. In the middle of October, a wave of depression, anxiety, and exhaustion crashed into me, and it became clear that I simply don’t have anything to give to this right now.
I’m depleted after close to 2 years of being a caregiver for my mom and watching her suffer day after day. There’s nothing left in me at this time as I try to do what I need to survive and keep working my job and taking care of my mom. She might have some surgeries in 2022. So, that will also add more stress and anxiety.
I definitely hope to return one day to the podcast when my life is in a better place, and I have something to give again. I’m just empty at this point. I don’t know if things will get better. They’ll be what they are, and I’ll keep finding a way to survive.
Thanks for listening. Please take care of yourselves and stay safe.
Note: If you’re a patron on my Patreon, I’ll be pausing it, and you will not be charged during this hiatus. You can read more here.
