In last month’s newsletter, I mentioned experiencing (what I thought was) burnout. Unfortunately, it appears much more is going on and I’m currently riding the medical merry-go-round (moving from specialist to specialist) trying to figure it out.
As someone who used to be energetic, active, and on top of things, it’s frustrating and bewildering to always feel completely drained (barely enough energy to get my oldest kiddo off to school in the morning), be in constant physical pain (my seventy-year-old mother can run laps around me) and have such frequent memory/focus issues that I’m avoiding conversations with friends so I don’t embarrass myself 😢.
I won’t bore you with the rest of my symptoms, but they’ve greatly impacted my writing and are forcing me to pull out of collaborative projects and cancel the pre-order for Claiming Her Mates Book Four. I hope fans of the series will understand. As soon as I’m able, I’ll complete and release the story and (as followers of my newsletter) you’ll be first to know when it is out.
One of the silver linings of this journey has been the readers and authors reaching out to offer their support and share their own experiences with chronic health and autoimmune issues. I’m in such awe of their strength and how much they’ve endured to get answers and manage their conditions. It’s inspired me to keep pushing for better medical care and even given me ideas for future books 😉.
Speaking of books, I hope you’ll check out my backlist of available books (free in kindle unlimited) as well as the wonderful new releases, book deals, and giveaways in my April Newsletter.
