I need some time away from blogging.
As most of you know, I've recently begun fertility testing and treatments. Well, thus far it's been a very stressful and painful process. What can sometimes be normal for others, is very painful for me because the way my body works (or doesn't, in this case).
The mixture of balancing hormones, multiple doctor appointments, loads of procedures and tests mixed with my OCD and fibromyalgia is leaving me quite a mess, and I've come to the sad realization that I have too much on my shoulders right now.
The cracks are forming and I can't keep using scotch tape to cover them up and pretend that they aren't there. Something has to give, and before it ends up being my health, my marriage or my mind . . . I'm stepping away from blogging for a short time to try to re-prioritize my life and focus on things offline.
I'll still be around on Facebook (cause how else will I keep in contact with anyone?), but my posts here will be very limited. My Love, Yourself series will continue because those are pre-written and are scheduled to auto-publish, and I will do my best to make sure that I post a follow up to those.
I've decided to take off three months. One month goes by too quickly (and the next month is looking to be a crazy one regardless), and in three months I'll turn 29, so it seemed fitting to celebrate my 29th birthday by giving myself my blog. But in the meantime, I need to give myself some time. Time to refocus my efforts on health and time to put family first.
I really hope you will all still stick around because you mean the world to me. It's because of my readers that I came out of the darkest period of my life. It's because of my readers that I was lead down the right path toward a diagnosis for my FMS. You've all helped keep my spirit alive for six years - and I guess I need to see if I can do it on my own for a few months.
See you soon.
PS: In the meantime, I can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Email . . . or probably lurking around my husband's blog.
