As someone who struggles with mental illness, sometimes just getting along in the world can be difficult. Today, I posted a blog post from my technical blog to and it got downvoted to oblivion. I am not gonna lie, that hurt. Some days, I question whether my mental illness has affected my ability to think rationally even on good days. Am I cut out to be a programmer who struggles with mental illness? I guess that remains to be seen. I certainly hope that I can at least make a difference, despite (or maybe because of?) my struggles.

I don’t know. I guess I am just rambling. But I hope this post at least provides insight into some of the struggles that go along with having mental health difficulties. I know I am not the only one struggling with those, so I hope I can provide hope to someone, even if it is through commiseration.

Anyway, I hope you had a better day than me. Keep on keeping on. :)
