Hello there. I feel like I haven’t been posting as much lately and for that I feel a tad guilty. I wish I could say that the reason is because I’ve been busy doing [insert awesome thing], but unfortunately it’s been due to my mental health. I’ve finally reached a breaking point and have started online therapy sessions. I was trying so hard to convince myself that I could just pull out of this funk on my own, but that is not the case. I feel like shit both mentally and physically and I have a very hard time focusing, even on things I enjoy. Hence the reason I’ve been bit slow on my reading updates and posts lately.
I’ve still been reading, but it hasn’t been anything super difficult or new. This weekend I re-read a couple of the Elsewhere books by Jacqueline West. They’re middle grade, but they highly entertaining and quirky. I first discovered them a couple of years ago and periodically re-read them when I need something “easy” to entertain me.
I’m not going to lie, part of my brain wants me to feel like I’m failing or that I’m lame for having to resort to reading “children’s” literature because I can’t keep my shit together long enough to stay focused on an adult novel. But I don’t really care anymore. I’ve just come to accept the fact that this is the way things are right now and that I need to practice self-care, even if that means that my blog posts will suffer a little.
I don’t plan on going anywhere, but I just wanted to explain why my posts/comments have been fewer. Hopefully things will start to turn back around soon now that I have enlisted help.
