sorry to write you this message. After some consideration I decided that I go on a (hopefully) temporary hiatus with the comic, as I feel like my life is in shambles right now.
I don't know how many of you read my posts regularly, but I don't want to send you sad stuff about my life every Sunday, while I barely make any progress with the comic. If you stuck with me this long, please don't abandon hope that I will return, as I also try and not leave you without continuing and eventually concluding the story. As I say it every time, I greatly appreciate you, who read this, follow the story and sent money to support me. I'm sending you a huge hug! Read further if you're curious about why I decided to go on this break.
I've been feeling my mental state deteriorating recently to the point that I can barely function in everyday life. I had this anxiety for long and it came and went in cycles, but it's much stronger now than ever before. I need to figure out how to stay hopeful, because if you don't have hope, you simply can't go on. I mostly understand what's happening to me, but despite this it's still hard to find footing. I mentioned briefly before, but the change of tax rules has made my livelihood very uncertain. I'm yet to find out, what to do in the future to make ends meet. Another huge problem is that I feel very alone, as I don't have friends where I live. I feel my isolation increasing and the people I have personal contact with, aren't very good for me either. And last but not least, I have extreme climate anxiety. The feeling of powerlessness is overwhelming. I made steps to try and find people who would really understand these feelings and have some solace. I'm worried for my cats here and how they take the heat. My apartment cools very slowly after heatwaves, because the house has thick brick walls. Once it collects warmth, it gives it off very slowly.
If you struggle with similar issues, just know that you're not alone, as I know that these problems are not specific to me. Hope you understand why I chose to take a break.
Thank you again for all the love and support Friend, hope to see you soon!
