I hit a rough patch a few months back.  The whole depression/anxiety thing compounded with work-related stress started to have significant physical side effects, and although desperation isn't in my repertoire, the situation became a bit much to deal with.

I ended up asking for help throwing myself on the mercy of the system.  I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder, with some OCD on the side.

I don't think any of the personnel involved understood exactly how bad it was--I'm really good at concealing my internal state--but I guess that doesn't matter.  I got myself a prescription for happy pills and a few sessions with a psychologist, and I'm feeling better.  Better than I have in years.

Now just because I've had a couple good weeks doesn't mean I'm out of the quicksand.  But y'know?  I think this might turn out okay.

On the downside, the meditation exercises haven't given me any superpowers yet.

Yeah they have plenty to eat.

However you were only able to carry 100lbs back to the wagon.
I mean....have you ever tried to eat 100lbs of meat? That's like an easy month of food for 1 person, including snacking.

You needn't worry. Most of it will wash away the next time they try to ford a river.
Better than dying to dysentary I guess...

Welp. The HoT ReBHeB didn't last five minutes, I've reached 50k in the T_T+, and I've rounded up all the quests associated with Legion and Female Robin, so for the first time since November, I'm out of things to do beyond SA/CC/AA grinding and maybe trying for a higher Feather tier for this T_T+.

At least tomorrow will have the third 'Tappa! Tappa! Tappa!'. :V Hopefully Golden Week has something good planned, because I could stand to do something more productive other than wait for Blessed Gardens and Radiant Dawns or work towards my fourth HP+3 seal (it'd be nice if they could preview who the next Three Heroes quest will be about since I could use the time to get ahead of that grind).

Acquired my 6th party member in Ni No Kuni II!  However, part of my self-imposed "challenge" rules is if someone gets KOed they get cycled to the back of the line.  After getting this new character all decked out and ready to go, I got to use her for all of 5 minutes before she ate dirt.  The weird thing is, Tani was also close to death in that same fight.  And it was just random mobs.  After that fight I have been in no danger at all for the rest of the dungeon.  I have no idea what happened.

I should mention that I finally finished Emma the other day, so it's right back to ST:TNG novels for me.

But the dungeon in Goldpaw has an awesome theme, at least.  Very unusual and fun, especially considering it's still Hisaishi.

If it's any consolation, Capstan is probably my second favorite so far.  I just got to Broadleaf and actually don't like that theme at all, despite another cool town design.

Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth - I've reached the Fifth Stratum, and have largely been smoothly sailing through the bar quests.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - I don't like the lack of music, but this has otherwise started out good

Resonance of Fate - Trying to scrounge up some money so I can buy weapon parts like the scope that gives my guns long-range capability.
