A Welcome Respite

You know what I haven’t done in almost a week?

Posted a submission on My Diabetes Secret.

It’s not that the blog isn’t active – there have been plenty of likes, reblogs, and new followers over the past few days. But the submissions have stopped for the moment. If I must be honest (and why wouldn’t I on my own blog?) it’s a welcome break. While I appreciate what My Diabetes Secret has been able to bring to the diabetes community, and while I believe that blog serves a meaningful and worthwhile purpose, it can be a bit much at times.

Reading through each submission is an exercise in mental fortitude, and I fear I could have been approaching the limits of what I could handle.

Knowing when to take a break, from whatever a break is needed, is important. I failed to recognize the need for emotional boundaries when I first created My Diabetes Secret, that’s when I decided to not review submissions after 9pm. Maybe I need to expand that restriction to weekends as well?

And here’s another cat picture to lighten the mood.

(I was quite proud of the caption in that one.)
