Awareness of my mental health


hello friend

I’m Pete Carr. I'm a photographer and this isn't a photography newsletter. This is a form of "Rubber Duck Debugging". Writing helps me process thoughts and work through problems. So I write to my computer about issues relating to mental health and being autistic. I then share it with you fine folk. There's nice photos too. 🖖

hello computer

You can get prints of the photos in this weeks newsletter on my print store or you can tip me on Ko-Fiso I can buy film for my camera.

Hello friend. How are you? I'm... coping. This week has been hard work. Unfortunately too hard for me to write anything of note. Everything creative I've tried to do this week has failed. I tell myself its part of the process and I should do something else to take my mind off it. That then fails. Everything fails. Ugh. It doesn't help when I've been physically battered by the worst migraine in years and vaccination after effects. I'm sorry. My brain just doesn't have the ability to write this week. Can’t edit photos either. Can’t do anything. It’s all rubbish. I’m rubbish. No. I’m not. I'm just feeling that way. This is what happens sometimes. Don’t be too hard on yourself. I’d say take a break but everything I enjoy has bitten me in the arse this week. Maybe I should sit and wait for Monday? Ugh. 

Be safe. Be kind to yourself. 


There is no paid subscription to this newsletter but there is a tip jar.
