#SomethingToSay

… sponsored by Deacon Media

There is no easy way to say this, so I will come out and just say it. For the next little while, I am hitting the “pause” button on #JustPreachin. I’m not sure for how long, but it has to be done.

Over the past few months, my health has been getting progressively worse. Yesterday I woke up with one of the worst headaches I have had in months, full out vertigo, nausea, and the neuropathy pain was unbearable.  This of course triggers my anxiety and the worst moments of depression I have had in over a year. I had to work so that I could afford my rent. I managed to get through the day without reaching out to anyone, which was perhaps a stupid call. Not like I was really thinking clearly anyways.When I got home, all I could think about was needing to get this blog out this morning. Once again, almost a full out panic attack. This blog has been my vent for some time now, and I fully intend to get back to it. However, when it now seems to dictate my decisions and affect my health, it is time for a break.

I am slowly working on my health issues and hopefully soon applying for disability, which bothers me and scare me to death. I have no intention to stop working and live off the system. I am currently stuck in a nasty rut. I am missing so much work because of a variety of physical and mental health issues. When I miss that much work, my paycheque reflects it. I can barely pay my bills let alone pay for the multitude of medication that I require to function on a healthier level. Without the medication, my health gets worse… repeat.  When I am sick and can’t work, the stress only makes it worse, triggers the anxiety and in turn pushes me down the rabbit hole of depression… repeat.

I need to take care of myself and these issues, hopefully get things in motion. I only hope you all understand and will accept my return when the time is right. I am sure to post events and a few things, but I just can’t devote the hours of time each blog post I have been. I had hoped to monetize things at one point, but again, this will have to wait. Love you all.
