Being on the mend. Blogs are weird – they really only show a small side of your life, and it can be hard to know how much to share. My health hadn’t been on track for months and I’d worked so hard to try and turn it around, but things continued to deteriorate – the past three months have been particularly rough. Ulcerative colitis is a pretty unforgiving disease sometimes – it requires frequent and sometimes difficult compromises. When I need to re-prioritize, I put health first, clients second, and everything else can wait: I’ve had to take a step back from my well-intentioned personal projects (I miss you, Sketch of the Week – let’s make a date for next week).
That being said, after three visits to the doctor and a generous menu of daily meds for the foreseeable future, I’m finally starting to feel better. My walks with Panda have gotten longer and I’ve enjoyed some really great days. Summer feels full of promise and I’m so grateful for the wonderful clients that I am fortunate enough to work with. As things slowly get back to normal, I’m looking forward to getting back to my little blog projects that I enjoy so much. Speaking of which, I helped someone with a design issue on Twitter the other day and realized that this may happen all too often for a lot of folks, so I’ve decided to start a series of design help posts – stay tuned for that to start next week. And, as per usual – have a lovely weekend, everybody!
