Last month was a very light month of blogging for me. Mostly because there were a couple of weeks there where I wasn't able to focus much. I had a nasty respiratory infection for a while that included a high fever, even forcing me to miss work (which I try my best not to do). Shortly after that, I went to the doctor about my chronic pain. We were able to get a referral to a surgeon, so hopefully at some point I'll be able to get in and see him, and maybe we'll get some answers. In the mean time, my doctor put me on a new med for the pain, which actually seems to be having an effect. However, and there's always a however, the medication has some difficult side effects. For one, I'm dizzy quite often. So much so that I actually did black out at one point, and at other times, I get these crazy tremors as I'm trying to regain my balance. In addition, I'm also much more tired than usual. All of this made for many unproductive weeks.
Now, I have to play catch up. I still need to get the copies of The Martian Wave sent out. I have two short story collections I need to edit for Nomadic Delirium Press. I have e-books to format, and who knows what else. It's going to be a busy September as I try to make up for everything I didn't get done in August.
