Blogging Break

Reader friends, I have some terrible awful no good very bad news: I have to take a break from blogging.WE tv GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

Ah, this is killing me. I feel like I’m cutting off my right arm! Which wouldn’t ACTUALLY kill me, but it would hurt a lot. Just like writing this post!

Wait what why!?

The thing is, I have spondyloarthritis + complications, and my latest flare up has lasted since February. I’ve actually been unable to work at my beloved library job since the beginning of the year. We had to postpone a vacation (and eat some of the costs), which was a really stressful decision.

In fact, we had no choice to follow suit with several BIG LIFE PLANS. FOR AN OBVIOUSLY DISTRESSING EXAMPLE!!!!: I had to stop eating sugar and eat veggies instead, guys. That was like…cutting off my left arm. I’m armless!!!

Er, anyway! Everything is kind of hanging in limbo until I recover, and unfortunately right now deadlines are my #1 stress-enemy. Rehabbing and doctor visits mean less blogging time and I seem to keep ending up in a packed, stressful schedule. Staring at screens also gives me migraines, if I’m stressed out, so that has been a problem lately.Ā And all of this contributes to insomnia. Do I sound like a hypochondriac to you because I’m starting to wonder if I NEED A THERAPIST FOR THAT TOO

So, er, anyway again! This just sucks but I have to put health first. *ADULTING SIGH* Soooo sorry to bail on you like this guys šŸ˜•

What All This Means:

I will be largely inactive on WordPress. However, if you are on Goodreads, I WILL BEĀ STALKING YOU!

Alternatively, if you spurnĀ Goodreads, I’ll join your email list. I don’t want to lose track of you guys because you’re awesome and brilliant and make me laugh and keep my tbr stacked with amazing books.

I have a few ARCs that I promised to review, so I’ll finish those off on Goodreads, but other than that, I’m planning to keep quiet for a while.

The Good News šŸ™‚

Just in case you’re actually starting to worry about me, seriously you’re soooo sweet, but no need! My husband and I are both Christians and we’re definitely seeing the blessings in our situation. Several good doctors haveĀ given us amazingly helpful physical and mental health info. Small example: the diet changes suggested by one revealed a ton of food allergies and even helped me lose a few pounds!

So anyway, don’t worry ’bout me! I’ll get back on track and we’ll be fine! I think I’ve taken up enough of your time now soĀ God bless and, um…GODSPEED!?!? Bloggers need speed, right?! Lol
