Goodbye?

I have spent the better part of seven years writing this blog and attempting to raise awareness of dissociative identity disorder. I’ve met with moderate success, but it may be time to say goodbye.

You see, I’m a human being first and right now I’m not well. I just found out I have a serious health issue that will eventually cost me my life in a most horrific way.

Besides that, I have been struggling badly lately from my fledgling trust being broken over and over again. I find that I am hesitant now to reach out any more because I know beyond a shadow of a doubt it will only lead to heartache.

So, with all due respect, I’m thinking seriously about getting out of the stigma-busting business and concentrating on fiction writing only.

This is no reflection on my readers and followers here. I just can’t allow myself to be hurt or taken advantage of any longer.

Life is too short, and mine will be shorter than most. I need to make hay while the sun shines and try to keep myself happy for as long as I can.

I’ll keep you all posted, but do not expect to see me writing large numbers of articles any longer.

I deeply care for each of you. I know that sounds like I’m just saying that, but if you knew me in person, you’d know how much that is true.

Good luck on your journey.

Shirley
