EDIT: I am NOT stopping selling, just to be clear. My hobby gives me strength and I'd surely completely crack up without it. Thank you for all of your concern and support!
On Wednesday, August 21st, I had a nervous breakdown.
I spoke to a therapist for the first time in my life yesterday about some childhood trauma I’ve never meaningfully dealt with.
I’m feeling much more in control now, but for the past 3 weeks I was in a lot of pain.
I took a leave of absence from work during a very important product launch which essentially puts me in the danger zone for dismissal.
I haven’t cleaned my house or cooked dinner, but I have taken about a million showers, just standing there, numb.
I have temporarily abandoned my hobby and neglected all of my current orders.
I deeply apologize to everyone with pending orders, especially those that I promised to ship out last week, when I thought I could, but I couldn’t.
I’m sorry I lied to you about what I was capable of accomplishing.
But today I feel strong enough and in control enough to be honest about my mental state.
Although I regret breaking promises, I must not be ashamed of what I’ve gone through.
I’m told that I’m pretty strong for coming out the other side and being open about my failings.
Or maybe that’s what I like to think.
I hope for those that I’ve hurt that I can make it up to you.
All pending packages will be shipped as soon as I can prepare them.
With all the thought and care that you’ve come to expect from me.
I hope you can forgive me and begin to trust in me again.
Thank you for reading.
All my love,
