Sorry I haven’t written in a while, folks. I’ve been out of order . . . still. The Crohn’s flare-up has thrown me for quite a loop, and the meds used to treat it threw me for another. This battle has been going on since August, and I’m seriously ready for it to be over. We’re getting closer, I’m doing better, but I’m not there yet.
Lately, I’ve been reading about friends with chronic illnesses who manage to continue to write through their pain and symptoms. I tell ya, these folks are heroes. I don’t see how they do it–much less keep up with their marketing and networking. Every time I’ve tried to write, I’ve had to take it all out. As far as social networking, I’m rarely on Facebook anymore and haven’t been on Twitter in months. By the time this flare is over, I’ll be starting again from scratch.
Are you a writer with a chronic illness? How do you push through? What is your secret?
