I need to officially apologize for my absence on Wattpad, Facebook and here. First of all, I feel truly awful for not being active on those sites. It has been an extraordinary year for me- and not in a good way. For those of you who do not know me on a personal level, I'd like to explain that I suffer with a rare disease called RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Stage 3) which dictates how I live each and every day. This is something I don't like to talk about because I hate having this disease. It rules every aspect of my life. Perhaps it's my pride but I don't like admitting to anyone that I am limited in what I can (or cannot) do. I still try to remain as positive as I possibly can but the bad days are just that... BAD days! This disease is the WORST form of chronic pain that exists and there are so many other symptoms of the disease that it would make your head spin. Then there are the "other" medical conditions that I have been diagnosed with that all manifested from my RSD diagnosis back in 2006. This disease is so rare that even doctors who supposedly "treat" patients who have this disease oftentimes have no clue what they are doing. To be honest, I have lost ALL faith in doctors because of my experiences with them in regards to treatments and medications. I also just spent a week in the hospital after becoming severely ill and jaundiced. I learned that I needed to have my gallbladder removed right away, and after that surgery took place I had to have another one just days later. I then left for a scheduled trip to California only three days after I was discharged from the hospital. I returned home after being gone for over three weeks to learning that someone destroyed my mailbox, my brother did not feed my cats like I paid him to do, and the list goes on. It's been a month now of me asking for help to get my new mailbox installed and not having received mail at all! The two people who were supposed to put in the new mailbox have not done so and I am stressing out BIG TIME over that. Thank goodness I can see and pay my bills online or else I'd be really screwed lol.
Anyhow.... to make a long story short, I live with a disease that rules my life. And I mean, it REALLY rules my life. I do what I am able to do when I can do it. This applies to my writing and I am sorry for that. I want to be one of those writers who can sit down and write at the drop of a hat. However, I am not like normal people. I write when I am able to. The same applies to editing work on the books I have already finished writing.
So now that you have a little bit of an understanding as to why I don't post for long periods of a time, I hope you will continue to read my work when I do post new blog items, or add new chapters to my books. I might be a bit unconventional, but I hope my stories make up for that deficit.
