A Wild Erin Appears!

Alternate Title: I am really sorry I disappeared for so long, but I was really sick. Also, I promise to catch up on promised reviews. And lastly, Happy Holidays to anyone who was kind enough to stick around, even though I didn’t post anything new for a long time.

Phew.

So the last few months have been really bad, health wise. It sounds like an excuse, and I suppose in some ways it is. But in terms of spoons, I was running on 1-2 a day, which doesn’t leave much for anything besides breathing and existing. I am still unwell, of course, but things are looking up (hopefully… fingers crossed).

In the last few months I have spent a lot of time on medicine that makes me not want to do things, medicine that wrecks my body one component at a time, and medicine that just doesn’t work. I have been to more doctors appointments than I am capable of remembering, and I have had the unwavering support of my husband to see me through. I got a medic alert bracelet. I napped… a lot. I have done things that it would take a great amount of money for me to detail here. But most importantly, I read.

There were days when I was too sick to read, when all I could manage was the bare necessities. But for the most part, I have devoured book after book, because it helped me escape the otherwise inescapable… my health situation.

I am currently at 125 books read for the year, and there is still over a week left. I am pretty proud of that. I am toying with the idea of making my blog a self-hosted in the new year. I am wanting to invest in a tablet to further help combat blogger fatigue.

All in all, even though I disappeared for a while, things are starting to look up. I can’t promise I am back, but I can promise that I am trying to be.

I miss my followers. I miss talking to you. I miss posting reviews instead of just stars on Goodreads. So, I am trying.

Currently Reading: The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien (finally)

Talk bookish to me!
