Going on indefinite hiatus. Depression is kicking my a**

Hello all, just wanted to let you know, I will be MIA for the time being. I am not sure for how long this time around. I have to deal with some things in my personal life. I have horrible depression and anxiety, and I haven’t been doing well at all. So, keeping up with this mag, which I design all on my own and trying to write a story has taken a toll on my mental health. I also feel that as much work and effort I put forth for my mag, groups, blogs to invite others and provide content for ppl to get involved in the community is all for naught.

The truth is, I don’t make content that appeals to the majority of ppl in this community, mostly because I am older and not very well known even though ppl knew me in the TS3 days and Reagan’s story had and still does have a lot of readers. I still love Sims, but I need a break from all of this. Another thing, I have helped different people while most are kind and gracious, plenty has taken advantage of my kindness. I work hard on layouts and interviews, and I did one recently, and this person couldn’t bother with a thank you. I’m not extending myself to people who aren’t appreciative any longer. I’m done with it. There are a lot of thirsty people in this community who only take without giving.

Sometimes (most times) I wish I was still in my TS2 days when I didn’t even know a community existed.

I’ll always be here for my fellow Simmers, and I will try to help however I can. But for now, I am taking a break; going to try to clear my head and get some things in order. This is a game, and it should be fun.

    • Thank you so much for your words of support and encouragement. Sometimes, I feel completely overwhelmed with everything I have going on. I try to put on a smile and be positive for everyone in the group, but it’s hard pretending all the time when you feel anything but happy inside. I do work hard and I want everyone to feel supported in SOCS, so I appreciate that you recognize that. Thanks again for letting me interview Gemini, you were so gracious and kind and helpful. All the best.


  2. Sounds like you are establishing some healthy boundaries ! Good for you! Takes a lot of conscious effort to create and maintain healthy and supportive subcommunities within the larger Sim community . If you’d like a sounding board and supportive friend when you return , feel free to reach out. You can always find me at the forums. Best wishes for your break. Recharge , relax , renew !
