No More ADAW

So I have decided to stop participating in A Doll A Week. It stresses me out, and considering how vulnerable I am at the moment, I will rather take photos for my own enjoyment, rather than doing it as a task that just has to be done.

So this picture of Cody will be my last ADAW picture in this round.


I'm going to contact my doctor soon, and see if I can get a reference to a psychiatrist and a psychologist. My dreams are out of control and it leaves me feeling like a zombie all day.
Besides that, I just need to talk to someone who can help me find order in the mess in my head xD

  1. Cody is so cute!!! I think it's good to take some time off of challenges if you are feeling overwhelmed.

    You can always talk to me if that would help you, though I'm not sure where or how XD haven;'t used chats since forever!

  2. Hi Nikki,
    That's one of the reasons I have never participated. I think it's good to join in, but when you make those sort of regular commitments, I think they often become a chore rather than fun.

    If you are having bad dreams or suffer from insomnia, I think it's a good move to speak to your doctor about it. He/she will put you onto the right professional that can help you.

    I hope you feel better soon.
    Hugs,
    X

    1. It is yeah, but I also see how it has improved my photo skills a bit, but I will still take photos, just not as a challenge. :)

      I definitely has some problems during my sleep :c So yeah, I'm gonna talk to my doctor about it.
      Thanks dear!

  3. Do just the things that you feel good about. I think it is the right way to go, to contact someone who can help you professionally. Having bad dreams that mess you up, can make the days hard. To talk to someone, even a friend, can be a big help.

    Cody is so cute. <3

    1. Yeah, I feel how it's wearing me down. But I think I will get the reference, I have written a letter I'll read to the doctor, so she'll understand the entire situation.

      Thank you sweetie <3

  4. Cody is adorable!! I think you should focus on the things that you like, and not do them as "tasks". I hope you can get those doctor's reference. Get well and take care of yourself!

    1. Thank you so much dear :3
      No, it's definitely not doing me any good anymore. So I'd rather spend my energy elsewhere.
      Thank you!

    I totally understand your decision. Since it's stressing you then don't do it. Your dolls should be a source of enjoyment and not a stress factor.
    I hope you get better <3 Hugs

      It ended up alright. I think I needed the break. Maybe I will try again next year or maybe not, we'll see :D
