Some of you know me personally, some know me as the individual who runs this site, and some might not really think 'who is this' at all when they pass through. That is okay--all I want is to make a useful site that helps people get through difficulties and strife. I am not really meant to be anything other than a face for the message. Regardless of myself, I really hope that eventually this site becomes a handy source for those suffering and those helping.
But today's post is about me.
My father, a wonderful, kind, and generous man, recently had a terrible accident and passed. His death was unexpected and has been incredibly difficult for his family and loved ones. My Papi guided our family in how to love, how to help others, and how to be the best we could be. The loss has been heavy.
While I am trying to reassess how to move forward in my life from this and how to properly honor his memory, it is difficult for me to properly maintain my work in the chronic pain and endometriosis communities. Messages have gone untended and questions unanswered. I am sorry. I do not plan to abandon what I have started and I have every intention of resuming the exercise project as soon as I possibly can. I love that so many are interested and feel they would benefit from this idea. It makes me so happy.
So please, forgive this inactivity and unresponsiveness. I am very sorry for those who have gone ignored or are worried about the status of the project. I will do my best to answer questions while I am healing, but please (for general items) just keep a weather eye for updates. When I am ready to resume work on it, I will make a post and will keep people updated. I will need all the help that has been offered.
Thank you so much for your interest in both me and the work I am trying to do. For those who do not know, before I became so ill, I wanted to go to medical school and become a diagnostic specialist. My father enthusiastically encouraged this. I love science, medicine, and people. I wanted to help them heal. While my doctorate is physically impossible currently, I still get to use my knowledge and talents to help people deal with pain, and it feels incredibly rewarding. Thank you for caring about what I have to say and giving my ideas a try.
