…and golly, it looks like I am! 🙂
But I meant for this to be a slightly different post than it is.
I think I lost a friend today, which has done a couple things.
First, I feel sick. I’m truly sorry it happened, although I don’t know what I could have done differently. It’s a big deal to me to lose someone, or to know that someone believes I disrespected or ignored or hurt them.
I won’t go into details except to say that I promise, to all of you, that it’s never, ever my intention to make someone feel that way.
I know that there are probably comments sitting out there on some posts that I haven’t yet responded to. Sometimes I don’t end up seeing them until I manually go through each post (this number 591) and scroll through the comments to ensure I’ve replied to all of them. I may only do a review like this every few months or so, so you might see an extraneous notification that I replied to a comment you left 5 days ago, or even 5 weeks or 5 months ago. :O
I do apologize for that!
This is particularly true for comments that got sent to my spam folder (dang WordPress! I know that its intentions are good, but…), or comments that came in on a day during which a lot of notifications came in. I usually use the WordPress app, and my version is outdated, but my iOS will not support the newer version, so until I upgrade the iOS (and probably screw up my mobile in the process 😉 ), I’m kinda stuck where I am. (And my browsers on my laptop and desktop are no better; the app actually outperforms them (!))
I’m also having some personal trouble at this point. It’s too depressing to go into here, but we’ll suffice it to say that yes, even a doctor can be flat broke. Starting a practice from scratch and wanting to actually help people outside of the confines of insurance will do that 😦
The past few days have been like, Are You There, God? It’s Me–Laina!
So, my energy is running a bit low, and I’m needing to tend to some work issues and some mental health issues and practice some extra self-care.
This may or may not also mean that I may need to take a (hopefully short) break. Or maybe not. My crystal ball ain’t so crystal clear, so… 😉
(But wouldn’t it be cool if it was? Hello Side Income! Hello Misunderstanding Prevention! How the hell are ya??)
Lol. I laugh because my other option is to cry. And I don’t look so great with puffy eyes. It’s kinda scary, actually. 😉
I know that everything is temporary if you give it enough time (Thank You, Shawshank Redemption!)
And this rough state of my recent life probably is, too.
Just wanted to put that out there. I don’t want anyone to feel unloved or ignored, because that just ain’t me; that’s not how I roll. I know most of y’all know that, so this is likely a really boring post with nothing new, but just in case anyone had any doubts…
