Taking A Break

Hi folks.

So. Coming from a background steeped in trauma sometimes means putting your life on hold to take care of yourself. Which, I guess, is not exactly putting your life on hold. It’s just… Thrusting it in a better, healthier direction.

At the moment, my trauma and mental illnesses have a pretty tough hold on me. I am taking some time off of work, including writing, to get some help. That means that there will likely not be updates on the blog for a while, and I do not have an idea of when they will start again. In the meantime, you can look for some of my work on a new publication in Seattle here.

I hope that if nothing else, this post might serve as a motivator for people with backgrounds like mine to realize that self care – even at the cost of job performance, time, money and relationships – is very, very important. I have recognized that at the moment, taking time to really care for myself is what is needed. In the same way a cancer patient might get treatment, so must we, the mentally ill and trauma survivors.

My love and gratitude goes out to all who have been a part of this blog so far, and hopefully will continue to be in the future.

If there is a spirit of wanting to help in you, here are some things you can do for me:

  • Pray for me.
  • Send me notes.
  • Donate to my Patreon page. I am adding a section there for costs that I will incur in the time I have off work. Medical bills surely add up.
  • Take care of yourself.

With much love and a little bit of hope,

Lyric
