Development, like most work, has its stressful periods.
Good you have the option to drop it; as a "normal" employee, I don't have that option.

I'm pretty fragile these days though, and it doesn't take much for what's left of my marbles to spill out of the bag and go rolling around the floor.
Never seen you break online. I did, regularly even.

And breakdowns can land me in a hospital.
Or a police station.

So much of my life these days is about eliminating baggage and self-preservation, it's amazing I have time to code at all. Unsure | :~
Take a week off, and eliminate the baggage in bulk.

Spend the last day on code you just enjoy.

Whenever I was stressed out too much, a friend would take me out for "fun". Mostly dinner, because I don't like crowds. She'd order for three people, while we were two. Confused the heck out of the waiters. We need good times, to offset the bad days. Also, ordering wine for three people may have helped Sniff | :^)
