I said some time ago that bipolar/ADD/PTSD/anxiety sometimes affects my review postings, up to months at a time. Usually whenever my medication gets tweaked that changes in one way or another. A couple of months ago I had two perfect weeks where everything felt… right. Ups and downs were normal ups and downs, not mania or depression. I was thrilled; I was back to reviewing five books a week, and even got ahead of myself with reviews lined up for two weeks out.
Then that perfect two weeks went wrong. I started getting bad side effects from one of the meds, and that resulted in a cascade of medication changes that makes it hard for me to concentrate on reading a book–hence, fewer reviews. I remain hopeful that there may be another set of tweaks next month that reverses that, but for the moment I’m just trying to keep reviewing at all. As usual I have high hopes that my ability to get things done will improve soon, but I’m trying not to expect too much.
I’m glad that you’re reviewing again–though, much as I love the reviews, for the thought that you’ve found a good balance again. I hope it continues!
Thank you, Scott! It’s a bit up and down still; some weeks are more productive than others. But as long as I’m chugging along it’s good!
