Why I’m Not Blogging Lately

Okay, so I know this is a bit of a change for me I’m not doing a music related post!!! But I feel like you all deserve an explanation for lack of presence lately on the internet, so here goes (insert deep breath)…

So I guess that most of you know I suffer from CFS and anxiety and sometimes this can prevent me from doing stuff I want to and right that seems to be my blog. Every time I load up my website to do a new post the thought of spending time sitting and typing is just so exhausting that I don’t. When I read about an artist to let you all know about them and their music I just can’t focus. When I think about people reading my words and maybe getting information or dates wrong I can’t breathe. All of these factors mean that my last post Sunday and that took most of the day!

So some of you right now might be thinking ‘Sunday that wasn’t long ago so what’s with all this?’ but for me my anxiety makes feel guilt ridden at anything like that and my CFS means that things feel longer than they are so…

If you’ve read this you’ll know right now I’m sitting here feeling so anxious you probably couldn’t even imagine it but I feel like you deserve to know why I’m not blogging at the minute. I don’t know when I’ll be back to blogging full time but I hope it will be soon.

    Brave words and thank you for sharing. Someone like you should never give up on a talent like this with words and I hope one day soon you will feel like sharing your thoughts on music again. You will be missed but take care of yourself 💕

  2. Thank you for your brave words. I can empathize with what you’re referring to, as a fellow anxiety and chronic fatigue sufferer myself. It can be such a vicious cycle: to worry, tire oneself out from worrying, worry about being tired, and subsequently tire oneself out all the more. I know the stress of wanting to be productive, but it taking so much time and energy to concentrate and apply oneself that it almost makes you dread the effort.

    I think it’s so important to be kind to ourselves in these instances, whether by taking a short break, a big step back, or being patient as you work your way through the process. I admire how self aware you are, as that so often is half the battle.

    I know you’re taking a short reprieve from blogging, but I look forward to following your future work. If you ever need an entertaining read, I hope you’ll venture over to my little writing space.
