Hey! Let's be friends. Feel free to ask me to review your music or art, or to strike up a conversation. I write music, stories, pictures, and software. I climb trees. I even play a few musical instruments. I struggle with depression.

I haven't given up on writing music, but I almost always am hit with strong anxiety every time I try to compose anything. Maybe I can get back to reviewing music here, though it is more difficult because of my health problems and also because me and my computer don't work well with the new feed system here. (One "infinitely long" page instead of paginated feed.) Another factor is the misophonia - a lot of music here contains sounds that make me panic and hurt.
I struggle with misophonia ("hatred of sound") and other "hypersensitivity", high anxiety, headaches, fatigue (sometimes extreme), confusion, food sensitivity, joint pain, raynauds, constant dry mouth, and constant thick and abundant mucus. My experience with doctors has been very frustrating. They all abstractly label everything as "general anxiety" or "depression" and prescribe antidepressants, or for some issues painkillers. I've read reports of antidepressants helping some people but my experience with them has been very negative. And I'm most interested in figuring out what exactly is wrong with me, but most doctors seem content with the general diagnosis.
I was recently advised to visit a Rheumatologist and consider if I have Sjogrens.
Despite all this, life hasn't been explicitly bad. I still am able to enjoy the small things, and there are a lot of small things in life to enjoy.
How are you?
Okay, now back to playing Stardew Valley, Rune Factory 4, Shikihime Garden, and Guild Wars 2. I swear I'm not addicted.
