Not the end

Hello everyone! It’s been quiet from my end and I feel the need to clarify it a little. As some of you know my health is quite shit. I’ve been struggling to get back on track after my brush with death in 2015 but due to my allergy for antibiotics it’s all taking much longer than I hoped. And then there is my housing and financial situation which only adds more stress. So while I do want to keep on blogging often I’m just too sick to do it, simple stuff like Facebook/Instagram is manageable most of the time. I don’t want the blog to look like shite so I just don’t blog at all.

When I started the blog my health was somewhat stable but the last 5 months it’s declining slowly but steadily. I’m currently on the waiting list for a neurologist specialised in cluster headaches and migraines in the hopes of her being able to help me. For those of you who have no idea what a cluster headache is I can attempt to describe it, it’s basically the worst pain you have ever felt multiplied by 100. At first I had maybe 1 or 2 attacks a month but the last few months it’s 4-5 times a week, it affects everything in my daily life, however the medication I have for it greatly affects my short-term memory basically I’m a goldfish. Reading is close to impossible and I have to make notes just so I know what’s going on in a book. Also it does take half a day or so to recover from an attack so by the time I’m sort of normal the next attack is already lurking. I also suffer from Aphasia which means I can’t write or talk at times this coincides with my migraines and cluster attacks. So if you see my comments on Facebook and they’re not making sense or if they’re full of grammar faults it’s a safe bet that I’m having a good time^^

In november I also started to lose my hearing so audiobooks aren’t an option most of the time either. At first doctors thought it had something to do with an infection or fluid behind my eardrum but recently they found a small tear in my eardrum wich causes it to pop a lot ( you know that annoying feeling you get during a trip by airplane). I’m going to get a hearing aid and I’m starting lip-reading classes come summer.

I’m not going to quit blogging I am taking a break till life returns to normal if that’s even possible

Anyways enough about my health. I’d like to apologize to everyone for not reviewing your books which you generously gave me. I’d also like to apologise to everyone who i promised to introduce here on the blog, I will eventually continue with that particular thread because well you deserve it. I can’t put a time on it but I’m hoping to get back to it in 2-3 months. This also means I will have to decline every beta read I was offered in the last months, i simply can’t do a good job right now.

I will keep on promoting all the books on Instagram and Facebook as it’s not bound to time

I wish my memory wasn’t this shoddy so I would remember everyone I owe so much too.

Thank you all for your understanding and support

  1. I’m so sorry to hear about all of this Femke! I’m sure I speak for the group when I say you have no need to apologize. I’d much rather wait to hear good news about your health than that you’re caught up in your reviews. Take it easy, and get better soon.
