I spend a lot of time on this forum, but sometimes I seem to have a little burnout on it. Every few days or so. Especially lately. I doubt many of you spend as much time on here as I do but I bet some get burnt out on it as well. Many of us spend hours here.
Whats burnt out? Stressed?
Being a mod would stress me a lot honestly.
I spend sometimes more time on this forum and some days I’m barely on it. I just follow the flow.
something like that, yes Aziz. Just tired of it, I guess would be an accurate description. Feeling like you need a break.
Hmmm… honestly I don’t get too burnt out on here…
You’re volunteering/working hard on here so it’s understandable to feel that way.
I’m just here for fun
I go from listening to music and visiting facebook and here…it might help to have another outlet online to go to…maybe youtube? I only go to facebook and here.
I take lots of breaks everyday. Have never experienced any burnout.
@Bowens it’s probably the heaviness of carrying the responsibility of being a mod…I ,know some that it was too much for them…might consider it…
Sometimes I feel a little claustrophobic but generally I quite like it here.
Lol. I guess everyone is saying no. It must just be me then. haha.
Well you are working too as a mod
… I would defo get burnt out some times haha
Since I’m being watched I’m thinking about not being on here. Maybe once a month.
I do @Bowens I’m always taking breaks.
I like this forum but don’t come here everyday. Recently I had a cognitive decline which makes it more difficult for me to read English posts on this forum. I should come here more often to practice my English.
I dont read all the post that would bring my symptoms/ideas back.
So, I do read and manage my symptoms well,
first in the initial days used to spend about 8 hours which popped up some symptoms and new ideas.
That’s the reason I stay away from some topics which trigger.
But all are understanding,
I don’t get to see much triggering topics recently or I don’t notice them.
If I read all the topic it pulls me in more.
I love to talk about my issues here, but I don’t much,
as I recollect it and type it, it become more in sink with reality for me.
I feel like I don’t really connect with that many on the forum so I feel a bit like a outsider.
I try to do a couple of solid hours in the afternoons but check in a lot and do other things online. I can understand whilst your modding that it becomes a bit of a chore. You have to make decisions all the time and that can be hard for sure.
I’d suggest trying to add some quality hobby time or socialising or anything other than the computer online. Just gets you in another mindset and your not becoming a slave to the online world.
I type my thoughts in because all are anonymous, and also feel safe, and yes mods are always just a text away.
Sometimes I do wonder to whom am I even to talking to, but hey- some venting and responses makes lots of differences.
Yeah usually I just check in each day, I haven’t been staying long like I used to.
I still like having it open though it lowers my anxiety.
