@wenotfreeyet It will feel like you want to do everything. Do not try. Give your self space to breathe.

Many cons offer quiet spaces to decompress, if that's a concern. If they don't, I would make a mental note of a local cafe or something and generally be okay with taking time away from the action.

@MordecaiMartin thank you! these really help, ive really just made it my goal to only do one event a day anything else is just like whipped cream or something

@wenotfreeyet pick one main panel a day and block in time for rest, overstimulation is absolutely a thing but it's okay to take a break, there is always something going on so you're not missing anything, when you have energy you can go right back to it if you want. bring a bag or a backpack so you can carry water and a first aid kit and snacks, and wear the most comfortable shoes possible. I hope you have a really lovely time!

@checkervest thank you so much! now that you've brought it up i forgot that the con will also be recorded! so that helps a lot too, yeah ill be taking so many naps haha
