Hope you all have been enjoying the holidays! I can’t believe 2019 is right around the corner. I have to say, I’m not sad to see 2018 go, it was a rough one. But in the spirit of new beginnings, I’ve started a separate blog to chronicle my adventures in healing. (I’ll still blog here about book stuff.) You can check it out here:
My Adventures In Healing
The one thing that kept me hopeful over the past four years was other people’s recovery stories, so that’s my main goal with this new blog. To pay that forward. Please share the link with anyone you know struggling with chronic illness.
May 2019 bring you oodles of peace & joy!
Writing has always been there for me, it’s my outlet, my therapy, the tool I use to understand the world around me. Unfortunately I must take an extended break from it. If you’ve been following my story, you know I battled CFS/Fibro for four years and was about 80% recovered before I got hit by a major trauma in October that almost took my life. From that, I developed PTSD and my health took a turn for the worse. A few weeks ago I spent five days in the hospital undergoing tests on my heart because my heartrate would shoot up to 180 bpm when I tried to stand up. I’ve been officially diagnosed with POTS, though I understand it’s just another symptom of the nervous system dysfunction I’m experiencing from all the trauma. Now I must put all my energy into healing because this has gotten serious.
So, obviously Pet Psychic Book 5 is back on hold. But, DOG GONE (A Paws & Pose Mystery No. 3) will be out this Christmas, as it’s already written and just needs editing. After that I hope to finish a second psychological thriller.
There are beautiful life lessons in all of this anxiety, fear and uncertainty. Maybe I’ll do a blog post on those when I feel up to it. Sharing hope and gratitude would make me much happier than writing a post like this. So until next time … when I will hopefully have better news.
