I haven't done any programming for about 5 years now. I opened stack overflow to get hands dirty again. None of the things make sense to me anymore. People are talking about so many new Async objects and words that are alien to me. I feel useless.

I am very bad with reading books and learning new things and I can only spare about couple hours a week outside of regular work on computers. This is problematic as I cannot simply pick up a book or start writing code. I lack imagination too as in what to write. My ideas are too old.

Have you been there and what made you restore your dignity in your mind? I will definitely try alcohol but was looking if there are alternatives.
