Generally speaking when someone says "you are in the swamps", what do they really mean to say? In other words in what kind of situation would someone use this phrase?
In response to a comment I am editing this question. Apologies for the late edit.
Backstory: I said to an individual that I have made peace with the fact that I just can't write code and I feel really bored because of this. He replied in that case you are in the swamps.
