My friends, thank you for bearing with me while I have been so MIA. I am stretched thin. I am fatigued beyond belief. I have surpassed my threshold for holding it together. This trip to Vancouver has been very hard on me, physically, mentally, and emotionally. I haven't had any true rest. But I have been on the go, every day, there's so much going on. This trip has highlighted to me how overwhelmingly busy life is here and why I, with my Central Sensitivity Syndrome, do not belong here anymore. At least not right now. So I'm grateful for the confirmation it's given me in my decision to move to Vancouver Island. However, one thing that's especially frustrating for me right now is the brain fog. The all-consuming brain fog. I can hardly think. People talk to me and five seconds later I realize I have no idea what they said. I can't remember anything. I'm hardly making short term memories. And it's stolen my words. I haven't been able to think clearly enough for the words to flow out of me. That last post, it was a significant day for me and yet, I haven't been able to finish writing about it. Soon though. Soon I will be heading back to my quiet, peaceful, isolated sanctuary. Soon I will have the space to rest, re-ground myself, hear my thoughts again, and begin writing once more. Thank you for bearing with me. I can't wait to be able to reconnect with you again soon.
