A personal update

I usually try to keep personal stuff out of this blog unless it actually affects the blog. Breaking my finger affected my ability to type reviews, being sick means I have less energy to get stuff done. You get the idea.

But there’s stuff going on in my life now, and I don’t know how it’s going to affect things. I’m sick. How sick, I honestly don’t know. My doctor is referring me to a neurologist for testing, and I’ve been, at least for the time being, declared incapable of returning to work. I have no idea what’s wrong with me, only that the doctor noted that it may be progressive. Progressive but treatable, but only once I actually get a diagnosis and thus can get treatment.

I don’t know how long I’m going to be out of work. I can apply for unemployment benefits, and I can hope that they come through before the rent’s due, and that they give me enough to actually pay the rent and bills. And that it lasts as long as I’ll be out of work. It beats getting no benefits at all, don’t get me wrong. And there may be stuff I can do in the meantime, selling things and whatnot to pull in a little extra cash to see me through. I don’t want to resort to begging for donations here, because that’s not what this blog is about.

If you can all be patient with me through this, I’d appreciate it. I’ll try to keep up blogging, but there may be days when it’s just not going to work out so well. Hopefully those days will be few and far between, but hell, when you’re dealing with crazy health crap, it’s unpredictable. I’m sure no few of you know from personal experience what that’s like.

  1. Augh, Ria. Here's hoping the docs can figure this out pronto, that it's something easily treatable, and that the financial hardship doesn't last long). Hugs and prayers coming your way from Colorado…
