The Year I Was Silent

A year ago my life was turned upside down. I went from blogging every day, to blogging 5 days a week, to blogging sporadically. I would like to blame the lack of blog posts on time but that would be a lie.


For one, I am just plane lazy. When you write a blog post it takes energy to write it as well as the emotional energy of sharing something that is personal to you. My life is very uncertain now and I spend so much energy trying to stay calm that at the end of the day I don’t really feel like talking about it. After I put Amelia to bed, if I don’t have any work to do for the comedy club I either go to bed or watch TV.

The other reason I don’t write is because I feel like I am in the middle of a crazy time and we don’t know the end result or solution yet. My articles and blog posts written today would be more like, “Things are crazy and I have no answers on how to solve stuff. The end.”

The other reason I don’t write as much is because I can’t talk about what is going on. I mean I can but I don’t want to call my lawyer every time I write a tweet or post and ask him if it’s ok.

The worst part about this is I really miss writing and being an open book. Talking about my problems empowers me and makes them seem less scary. I am lucky in that I have a ton of great friends that are supportive but I miss sharing with my internet friends.

Hopefully, I will be able to be open again but for now I will try to find things to write about that I enjoy and have nothing to do with me.

    Uncertainty stinks. Don’t let it drive you crazy. I think any moms (or dads) following your blog will understand that. We live wanting or expecting things from our children without knowing if any of it will come to fruitation or turn out well. As a special needs mom, I get it, at least. πŸ™‚

    About not writing: I write less too. When I started, it was a process of healing and something to do with my time while Eddie was sleeping or busy or not wanting to interact. Now, after some therapy (no point in lying about that), I’m feeling better with or without writing. Eddie’s improving too, as he now communicates with us through sign language and actually wants to interact most of the time. Now, I’m busy, ha πŸ™‚

    The point is, life is always changing. There will be times when you NEED to write, times when you’d like to, times when you’d like to, but can’t etc. You’re a person, not a computer. Don’t let anyone make you feel differently.

    Best of luck with everything going on. I’ve seen a few of the pictures of Amelia– she still dresses cute and has the sweetest little facial expressions! πŸ™‚
