On a more personal note

stargazer_tophatA couple of days ago I posted about my plans to change the pace on the blog and hinted at the reasons. Today I thought some of you might be interested in an update.

One of the reasons why I haven’t posted that often recently is that I have a lot of stress-related issues like sleep disturbances, panic attacks and depressive episodes. Since then I have had an appointment with my GP. She signed me off work for the next two weeks and I am now on a mild antidepressant that should help me sleep and get rid off the panic attacks.

I am still not totally symptom free and my attempts to get an appointment with a psychotherapists have been futile so far. But I’ve started to deal with my health issues and I am pretty sure things will improve from now on.

I want to thank all of you for your continued support. And don’t worry, I won’t shut down this blog anytime soon. In fact I’ve written another RPG-related post that will go live tomorrow!

  1. God bless and comfort you, fellow traveller. Been there; hate that. But there is light at the end of the tunnel. (No pun intended.)

  2. Take time for yourself, take care, we all want you to go well first, and then to post us nice things ^_^

  3. One thing I’ve learned, is that we don’t have to have some terrible incident or anything really bad or sad happening in our lives. This can hit us even when life is skipping along merrily, scattering flowers, with Care Bears dancing and (SLAP!!!) – Ouch! Thanks. I needed that.

    All seriousness aside, sometimes – like a virus or a germ, these things Just Happen. I’m glad you had an effective GP (Glorious Pretzelmaker) to help you as you needed it.

    *jeep! & God Bless! (as my red-headed hero used to say, sort of)
