Life, rolling by…
I apologize for my having been so absent recently. There are hundreds of guest posts in my review box, so thank you to everyone who has contributed. Honestly, right now I’m so far behind on all of this that I’m overwhelmed just to think of going through all of the guest posts, let alone answering questions and typing new characters.
There is a strong possibility that I may have to change the way this blog is run in the future. I’m presently debating the idea of allowing a select few of my past guest writers to write and publish posts as limited-access users. I would end up being administrator/editor and making sure that other submitted posts still got reviewed etc.
Then again, I haven’t settled on anything. But if you’re a regular contributor who’d be interested, I’d definitely be open to the possibility. Let me know in the comments.
Now for an explanation/update:
Apparently, my body is trying to kill me, and minions listen. It’s hard to be a blogger when you’re trying not to die.
I’ve dropped all of my summer classes and have gone home to Liverpool to try to recover enough to hopefully return to university in the fall. For now, I’m largely homebound, so I will be working online when possible…and yes, trying to catch up on my blog queue.
However, I can’t guarantee that I will necessarily achieve that goal, or that I will be able to start writing as many posts for this blog as I used to. Most of you won’t need a reason why, but since there are always some that do, so to those people I will say this: I owe you absolutely nothing.
For those that are actually interested, I’m currently seeing a Rheumatologist and a Neurologist, but have made no progress towards any kind of diagnosis. As an INTJ, the most frustrating thing is not being able to plan anything in advance because I can’t predict how sick I’ll be hour to hour (Ni), and secondly, not being able to accomplish as many tasks in a day as I used to be able to (Te). As my fellow INTJs will know, most of us like to consider ourselves very resilient people who cannot be beaten by circumstance. But unfortunately, the nature of my illness is such that sometimes, even if I have the mental strength to carry out a task, my physical body doesn’t always share that stamina. That said, the frequency with which I over-exert myself is not something that my doctors encourage.
