First off, I would like to apologize for my long and unexplained absence these past few months. I had some serious health issues back in January and had to step away from social media while I dealt with it. I didn’t announce a blog hiatus because I was hoping it would be a short break. But one month turned into two, then three, and despite my most valiant efforts (hello, raw plant food diet), things just kept getting worse. I didn’t want to blog about my endeavors, because honestly, who wants to read about the “healthiest diet in the world” actually making someone sicker?
However, I am happy to report that things are finally starting to get better. One reason being I abandoned the raw plant food diet after discovering literature on how there are certain types of people it’s NOT healthy for. No one size fits all…gee, what a concept. I’m not sure whether I’ll go into more detail in later posts about my experience, though I’m sure it could help a small percentage of people who fall into the same category as me. But it’s been a difficult road to endure, and I’m not going to claim to be a health food expert.
At this point, I’m trying to ease back into the world of social media—and writing. My muse suffered greatly these past 4 1/2 months, and I know it will take some patient nurturing to bring her back to health too.
The good news is that before my world came crashing down, I had actually finished Elemental Magic 4! I’ve just been holding off on the release until I could give it proper attention. So watch for Unbridled Magic very soon, and sign up for the newsletter if you haven’t yet.
And to those still here with me, thanks for sticking around. 🙂
Welcome back! I’m glad you feel better enough to resurface. 🙂
Thanks, Leslie. I just hope I stay surfaced. Getting back into things is a little…intimidating.
Welcome back, friend 🙂 And you don’t have to stay resurfaced if you don’t want to. Pop in when you can. Schedules are overrated 😛
Hehehe, good point, Alina. 😉
Glad to see your out and about. Hope things get better for you!
Thanks, Susan! I’ve still got my ups and downs, which I suppose will never go away. But I’ve felt better these past few days than I have since last fall.
Welcome back Angela! I was just thinking today it’s about time for me to write a “sorry I’ve been gone” notice on my blog soon. It helps me to know that you too are taking baby steps to get back. Congrats are finishing a new book! I’ll do a happy dance for you. It’s so not pretty….So happy you’re feeling better!
Thanks, Nancy! I think we all have to step away from blogging every once in a while, whether to recharge, re-balance, or re-prioritize. As I am seeing here, your followers will understand. 🙂
Welcome Back Angela! My hiatus is much longer than your’s and for very different reasons, but more importantly, I’m glad you’re back on track with your health.
Thanks, Nancy. I hope you’re having a great time on the open seas!
Glad you’re back 🙂 Hope everything is on track with your health.
Thanks, Raelyn. The track resembles a roller coaster with triple-upside-down loops and reverse propulsion, but my state of mind is much improved. 🙂
[…] week in my comeback post, I said I wasn’t sure whether I’d blog about my quest for health through diet […]
