It’s been a tough couple of weeks because I’ve been down
with a cold and experiencing other stress-related issues. Therefore, instead of
focusing on this website and my publication (Working Freelance Writer), I’ve
been placing all my energy on client work, self-care, and my family. Some of my
colleagues noticed my absence in comparison
to how active I usually am and reached
Reaching out like that means a lot when someone is working
in a business like freelance writing. We don’t have a lot of contact with the “outside
world.” So, few people aside from those we have day-to-day contact with know
what’s happening and why we go silent (or quieter than usual). Therefore, when people notice things are “off,” it means
something—those people are offering support. Yes, that matters and I appreciated
everyone and every word.
I’m feeling better, and
my energy is returning. I went to the doctor yesterday and am on track for
better health. I’ve spent the last couple
of years focusing on my husband’s health ever since his hospitalization with hemorrhagic
pancreatitis and systematic organ failure, as well as subsequent recovery. Now
that he is doing better, we’re going to get back on track with my health.
In the meantime, thank you to
everyone who reached out and offered me support—I appreciate all of you!
