Still alive …

Usually I avoid this kind of posts, but since I haven’t really written anything since May, I thought it wouldn’t hurt to send a few life signs…

In May I returned to work after being  on sick leave for about one and a half years. My coworkers and – to my surprise – my superiors are really helping me out a lot right now and I am slowly getting back into the routine – and it’s actually good to be back!

But this also has it’s drawbacks. At the moment 8 hours of work are still pretty draining. Especially in May I felt emotionally exhausted and tired all the time. That has directly affected my ability to write blog posts and to run roleplaying games on a regular basis.

Often I just don’t have the energy to do anything more complicated than watching movies or playing on my Playstation. Things are slowly getting better, as I get back into the routine, but at the moment I prefer to chill instead of forcing me to be creative.

So what does that mean for the blog? I will probably write more regularly in the future. But at the moment I don’t actually have that much to write about. There are a few products I want to review, but I haven’t had the opportunity to read everything properly yet. But I’ll eventually get to it.

I hope you don’t mind the hiatus.

  1. Exhaustion I find pretty understandable. How I’ve often felt after work, even without recovering from any kind of I’ll.

    Hope things continue to improve for you.
