I'm not going to be blogging for a little while. It sounds ridiculous to say I'm not well enough but....there it is. I have severe bursitis in both shoulders. The Dr thinks I have severe carpal tunnel in my right wrist/hand (and mild in my right), though I think that it is coming from an impinged nerve in my neck or shoulder (will get those results back next week). The bottom line is that I can't feel my hand or fingers properly (numbness, burning and pins and needles) and my arthritis is such that for about 1/2 of the day, I can't move my fingers properly.
Every day I think about blogging and at the moment, feel nothing but dread. I feel stressed about the list of blogs I've started in the past 2 months, but haven't been able to finish. Now they're just old news and it seems silly to finish them, let alone post them. Then I stress about all of the blogs I'm not commenting on (I am reading).
So I'm giving myself permission to just let this go. I dont' want to shut down the blog. Truth is, I love my blog. Especially the first 2-3 years of it. I am not ready to give that away. But for the moment, it's not worth making my hands worse.
I am hoping to be back - hoping that in the next couple of months we can get on top of either the arthritis or the nerve pain (surely not both????) and I can type again. I've not done any copywriting for nearly 6 months, for the same reason.
It sounds so ridiculous to say I can't type. I can, just not without pain and it just doesn't feel worth that at the moment. I'm content reading my books (am up to 49/52 - Woot!) and catching up on your blogs. And trying to post on Facebook to stay in touch.
As I said. This isn't a good bye. I hope to come back and blog again. There is a lot to blog about - Sam's about 1 appointment away from his diagnosis and I have a lot to say about that. I'm just going to lay low for now.
Nothing dramatic. No 'woe is me' or 'I hate blogging because...". I'm not fishing, this isn't me waiting for "Oh, but you can't stop". :-D Just a whole lot of sore. <3See you on the other side (erm...and on your blogs and facebook).
