I tried writing three different versions of another blog post before finally abandoning the effort. This summer has really taken its toll on me, and I feel like I’ve lost my voice as a writer. I’ve struggled with this before when dealing with backlash and bullying from the patient community, but this time, it’s different – I’m in such a weird headspace with my arthritis that most days I don’t know what I want to say or how to say it.
Hi, friends! I’ve missed you! I hate that it’s been a month since I’ve written anything, but that last post took a lot out of me. So much so, that I really needed to take a break not just from writing, but from sharing so much with the #ChronicLife community. I love that I have so many amazing friends that are always there to support me when I’m struggling, but sometimes I find myself needing to unplug from it all and focus on being present offline with friends and family. April ended up being a tough month, and this was especially true. I’ve got some other posts in the work that I’m really excited, but first an update.
