It's gotten so bad for me that I experience a form of "coder's block" and have been considering a different career, but I don't know what else I could do.

Sorry you're also dealing with this.

Looks like Fuzzy has safely parked under Price's law, sometimes I envy corporate ppl being this lucky.

For me, the only way to go is pursuing the flow, and that is possible only when I decide what I am doing. My brain is so spoilt that I'd need a glucose debt to micromange it to do anythng productive otherwise.
