There’s a side of mental health that I haven’t openly talked about. That side is money. Not an easy thing to talk about. When I went off work I was on full paid leave for the maximum amount of days, I then went on to statutory. Statutory didn’t even cover my rent so I blew through all my savings while I was off work. Like mental health in general the financial recovery has been difficult. I could have made it a lot easier on myself but I thought it was important to at least keep up with at least 60-70%...
This is an unpublished post that I’ve only just got round to posting. I’m writing this 3 days before everyone finds out that I’ll be part of the Thursday keynote. Let me back track a bit. 19th July - Friday - I published a blog post with my candid take on the week. I went to bed then at 00:15 my phone dinged.

Flashing UI - Randomly flashes distracting me from work. Doesn’t remember position when viewing all albums.
