On Books and Babies, Part 1 (Or, Where I've Been)

So, here’s a funny story.

My second book and my first baby were due on the same day.

The short version?

The former came a little bit early (but oh how she hung in there) and the latter was inevitably delayed, but in the end, they both came when they were ready.

The longer version? Stay tuned.

Because I think I might actually be able to resurface now.

Thanks for waiting for me.

(And let's not mention the major revisions in store, m'kay?)

Congratulations on the baby (and the book)! I hope things are going well overall with both, despite the difficulties you may have along the way. (I just recently read your book and subscribed to your blog, by the way. I'm 27, dealing with fibro since my teen years -- and other health issues my entire life -- and your writing has really helped me so I want to thank you for it. But I promise I'll be patient as I wait for future posts here knowing that you have so much on your plate at the moment!)

Hi I was diagnosed 3 years ago with CFS and fibromyalgia. This was after having glandular fever. I was in a wheelchair for 6 months and unable to work for considerably longer. When I did go back to work I couldn't even remember how to get home! From not being able to walk up the stairs without clinging to a banister and one foot at a time, two days after my first session I walked upstairs unaided and normally. I still suffer from CFS and probably always will but it is managed now. My partner knows when I do too much and I slow down and recover very quickly now. I do suffer pain occasionally, but I lead a 99% normal life now. I cannot stress enough how treatments helped. I was told by the doctors that heat would help with pain relief. It did nothing at all. However a cold wet towel draped over my body made the pain reduce sufficiently for me to cope with it. I really do wish you all well and would encourage the use of alternative medicines as I feel conventional medicine does not really recognize these illnesses and we fall through the system.

Thanks so much, Alison! And thanks for reading the book and following the blog-I always love hearing from readers.

I plan to be back on track and posting more regularly in the next few days.

Have a great weekend!
