Farewell 2021, Welcome 2022: a personal post

TL;DR: A retrospective of 2021 2021 was a good year overall Pandemic and lock-downs set aside, 2021 was a good year overall. I’ve really enjoyed my daytime job, my physical health was fine, my mental health was… meh… but ok, I guess. Learnt about my neuro-divergences I took a psychological assessment which pinpointed what’s “wrong” with me, the source of my alexithymia, generalized anxiety disorder and life-long uneasy feeling.

August 2021: taking a break

TL;DR: - this is a short article, no TL;DR. Why so calm ? As some of you know, I was diagnosed a few years ago with generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder and alexithymia, a trait that makes it particularly difficult for me to cope with the disorders. As I wrote in 2019, I didn’t take the alexithymia diagnosis too well. It took me a long time to stop ruminating, move forward, and start trying to find a fix for myself with virtually no help.

April 2021: OpenSMTPD, plakar, ipcmsg, privsep and a small hypnosis talk
