For those of you who keep up with me on a regular basis, may already know what I am about to say, but for those of you
who do not, I just wanted to do what I can to keep you in the loop.
The following passage does talk about thoughts of suicide and therefore if you are someone
who has suicidal tendencies or suicidal thoughts please know that you are not alone and that there is help for you, just like there was help for me. Please I encourage you to reach out to your countries suicide hotline and get the help you need and deserve.
Here is the link to every countries suicide hotline, again you are not weak for asking for help and you are not alone.
Some of you may know that I was working a 40 hour week job. However, my health problems started to arise a lot faster than expected and on Nov 29, 2021, I suffered a nervous breakdown, mostly due to the fact that I had
lots of responsibilities on my plate with the 40 hours a week job, taking care of a special needs child, and taking care of the house. It all boiled over and I thought about taking my own life. In addition to my responsibilities, I suffer from Bipolar Disorder
Type 1 and this causes me to have crippling anxiety and paranoia episodes.
I will admit when I had the nervous breakdown I had been off meds for years
and by years I mean 4 years. My life boiled over might be an understatement. As I said I was thinking of taking my own life because I couldn't deal with it; but instead I immediately thought about my son and my boyfriend. I called my boyfriend, who remained
with me as I contacted the Suicide Hotline. Needless to say, I am now getting the help I need and taking it one day at a time.
So what does this means when
it comes to Streams and Game Coverage? I am still going to do Streams and Cover Games. However, I will not be taking any game requests at this time, as I am being forced to move out and so for the time I do have left, I would like to cover games that I choose
so that I can relax during my streams. Once I am settled I will consider reopening the form.
Tuesdays will be the day for Coverage and to keep me
sane Saturdays are the days that I will play my own library of games. So keep in mind that if you submit a game it will now be played on Tuesdays. Usually the following Tuesday after submission. I am limiting myself to four games per Tuesday Stream. So if
your game is on the following Tuesday it will be on the next Tuesday.
Of course, I will let you know when the games will be played as I have in the past.
All VODS will be up on Wednesday and can be found on
readysetindiegames.com, and thedailygamepad.net.
You may be asking where thedailygamepad.net came from. I wanted to let you all know that there is a possibility that I may be shutting down this website and moving
my content over to thedailygamepad.net, to help lighten the load. When and if I do decide to; I want my content to already be over on thedailygamepad.net as well as readysetindiegames.com until the site shuts down. I will let you know that if I also decide
to go over to thedailygamepad.net exclusively; this website will be up until March 12, 2021, but I will let you know in February what my final decision is.
Thank you for your understanding, as I continue to provide support for the indie game community.
Be Safe and Keep Gaming,
