Among the many supportive comments I’ve received during my hiatus due to anxiety attacks and depression, it was suggested that I keep my updates to a minimum until I returned. So I went quiet for a couple of weeks.
Regrettably, my recovery has taken longer than expected due to persistent symptoms of anxiety compounded by depression. I haven’t quit and I haven’t given up on getting better–I’m just trying to get back to enough of a semblance of health that allows me to work.
For me, dealing with anxiety and depression are daily battles, even when I’m at my best. I still have to fight through symptoms of both illnesses to get out of bed and function every day.
I’m not at the point where I can fight through my illnesses to the point that I can work, not yet, anyway. While I’ve spent the last three weeks going to bed hoping that I will feel OK enough to grind out a day’s work, I’ve spent the last three weeks in significant pain, and the pain hasn’t let up.
As soon as I can fight through it, I will get back to work, and I will work very hard to return to providing a one-stop shop for Wings news. In the interim, however, I am doing my damnedest to recover and heal. I am sorry for the interruption in service, but I’ve been a bit of a mess lately, and I’m trying to sort it out.
Thank you for your support and readership. I’m hoping that things will get back to more regularly abnormal ASAP.
