I read your post and I let it sit in my head for a few days. Ultimately, I don't know the right thing to say, but I do feel for you and the traumatic experience you went through. I've been a longtime visitor to your site. Been coming here since the mid-2000s. You've provided all the Nintendo news I needed in one source, and you've always been a genuinely nice person. And every time I would randomly drop into a podcast it was always filled with good vibes.
While I'm not sure if your experience had anything to do with the pandemic, I know that 2020 did feel like it forever changed me. All that time I spent alone, combined with my overactive imagination, OCD, random guilt from past memories, and the constant barrage of negative news just wrecked me mentally. It's hard for me to really enjoy the things I used to because I just feel like a bad person all the time, even though it's mostly just in my head. So for the first time in my life I'm thinking of actually getting therapy.
It sounds like what you went through was really traumatic so I'm not trying to say my experience was as life-changing as yours, I'm just trying to relate to you in the best way I can so you don't feel alone amongst the craziness in the world today. You've always struck me as a decent person, and I've always appreciated what you've done with GoNintendo.
Ultimately, do what is best for you and your mental health. If that means stepping away from this site temporarily or even permanently, I would still appreciate all the work you've done over the years and all the memories you've helped to create.
Thank you, Kevin. I wish you and your family the best.
