For nine days I was quarantined in bed with a fever, for five more days after that I was unable to breath as my lung capacity was severely limited. Trust me, it could have been worse and I’m thankful it wasn’t. So why am I bringing this up in a blog? For two weeks I was unable to do anything, including reading.
Consequently, I was also unable to write which meant I was unable to publish anything on Channillo the second week of December. This was heartbreaking for me. Because I have readers paying for my content, and donating to Child’s Play, my responsibility and my promise to them, is two days worth of content a week. I failed them that week and it bothers me.
This past week I also had to request extensions for book reviews I had committed to due to illness. No one grumbled, everyone was supportive, and wished me well soon. I am so lucky and so thankful for my community. My favorite tweet-hearts checked in on me to see how I was feeling and it really helped me overcome the depression that comes with being ill and so dependent.
Now that I’m much closer to “better” I am trying to pick back up my routines. I published on Channillo last week, and I will this week as well. I published a blog last week and this one today. But most importantly, I am reading again. Keep an eye out for Saving Anna by Toni Allen and A Conall Christmas by Bethany Claire as those are both on the docket for this week.
Thanks for sticking with me, I’m off to cuddle up with a book!
