My confidence has taken a hit the last few months and you, my dears, have suffered as well.
Instead of following my pledge to document my struggle, I’ve suffered in silence, licking my wounds in hibernation.
If I cannot honest and open here, then I cannot hope to maintain honesty and openness elsewhere, so let me start with the truth.
I’ve not been ok.
In the interest of privacy, I won’t go into detail, but I have been in physical, mental, and emotional pain for months. I believe we’re all suffering collective trauma from the pandemic, and perhaps that’s all this is, after all. I’ve been balancing the correct medication for my condition and the fallout of the side effects.
None of it is pretty.
We’re headed into the winter, traditionally a rough time for me, but I’ve had a rough summer and I’m feeling pretty good at the moment.
Things are looking up for the first time in a while.
I hope it will last, but I’m also looking ahead to Daylight Savings Time, another rough patch, and prepping for the change in season best I can.
The point I want to make is not what’s been wrong, but how to make it right.
I want to be ok.
But if I’m not…
I want to be helpful
