Hi guys, I’m really sorry for the long absence, but a lot has been going on this past month.
The biggest thing? I lost my job. I worked for a small non-profit and they weren’t in a place where they could properly adapt my position to help me through my health crisis. They were generous and gave me a few extra months of pay to try and help out, but it was a pretty emotional thing. I was stressed about the future but also so… relieved. Full-time was such a struggle and when I do go back to work I know it will have to be on a part time basis. My body won’t allow anything else. Luckily Patrick has been super supportive and agrees that focusing on my health is the best thing for me to do right now. Job hunting can wait a little while.
Another big thing? I finally got in to see a rheumatologist after months of waiting for an appointment and she doesn’t agree with my GP’s theory about my having fibromyalgia.
She thinks I have Multiple Sclerosis.
She called the hospital and requested an urgent MRI, which I’ll be getting on the 18th. And I’m now booked in to see a neurologist after that. Which brings my total number of doctors up to 4 – I’m feeling popular!
Suffice to say, there has been a lot on my mind and I just haven’t had the headspace to write. I’m trying to get back into it. I’ll admit I’ve been moping for the most part the past few weeks. But I’m tired of feeling unproductive.
I’ve also started writing a serial fiction on Patreon which is a modern retelling of the Hades and Persephone myth (I’m a huuuuuge mythology geek). It feels good to get into a creative place after feeling so blocked. I also hope that I can drum up enough interest to earn some extra cash through it as well.
So that’s what has been happening. Sorry again for going MIA.
