Over the past few weeks and months I've had some huge challenges with my mental health, to the point where I didn't know what was wrong with me and I had some breakdowns. This episode is a solo podcast sharing some of my thoughts and those challenges to hopefully help out others who might be going through something similar. I've taken some time off work and I'm slowing starting to realise what went wrong and what I need to do to get better.

Show Notes

I've never really understood mental health, or those who have had these challenges in the past. So when I've had my own challenges, I've struggled to comprehend what has been happening to me. This episode is hopefully an interesting insight into how I've been feeling over the past few months to hopefully help others who might be going through a similar thing.

Here's some things I talk about:
  • Where I've been
  • Overworking
  • What went wrong
  • Why I didn't notice a problem
  • Why family and friends are so important
  • The supportive indie hacker community
  • YouTube videos are hard
  • Burnout / depression are real shitty
  • My future plans
  • How I'm going to get out of this mess
I mentioned in the pod I'd been making videos about my motorbike, here's a few links if you'd like to watch:
