Yes, I'm once again behind on posting info to the blog. I am a CFS patient with limited energy. My top priority is my paying work. My next priority is household chores. This blog is something I do when I have time and energy to spare. It's a benefit to others but provides no benefit to me -- I don't get paid to do it, other than the psychic compensation of hearing from people the blog has helped -- so it is not and never will be my top priority.
I do my best, but sometimes life gets in the way.
Sometimes life forces its way in. I am disabled and on a limited income. Hired help either doesn't do the chores at all or does them in ways that I have to spend time undoing them, so for the most part, it's wasted money.
Following a big storm last month, I was cited by the City because my yard wasn't cleaned up promptly. The friend I called to help picked a fight so he could stomp off leaving the work undone. So everything else in life had to be put on hold for several days while I did what a healthy person could have done in a couple hours. And since that took several days out of my schedule, I fell further behind on things like this blog.
So all I can do is ask for your patience as I find time to read through the backlog of information to look for things worth sharing here. I know some people would like keeping up this blog to be my top priority, or, in fact, my only obligation, but that's not going to happen.
