Hiya you lot, you all good?
I am so sorry to have to do this but I am so frustrated right now I don’t feel like I have a choice.
So, it’s plainly obvious that this year I have not read much at all. I just wanted to take a minute to address this to you. Most people know that I am disabled and suffer from a good few chronic illnesses and because of this I will disappear for a while every so often. Others, well, they don’t. They don’t bother to read up about us bloggers before they ask us or in some cases demand us to read their work. I know I’m not the only one who feels this way.
Over the past week I have had more than one person getting very shitty with me because I’ve not read their book. Bearing in mind that if I have accepted any requests I would 100% NOT have offered a time frame. However, I still get some absolutely charmers proper bitching at me over it. It’s not on at all.
This year has been the worst for me so far since starting TBGWP in 2013. I have more ailments added into my never ending list of bloody ill health. I honestly neither have the energy nor the patience, even the strength to lift a book. The pain is that overwhelming it has me vomiting or in absolute tears. When I do get the chance to try settle into a read via my kindle you can guarantee I’ll be snoozing after a few pages. It’s been a nightmare. I think people forget that my life is basically books so to have the one thing that keeps me sane taken away from me, well it’s destroying. I do try my absolute best every day and if that’s not good enough for you, well then you can seriously just fuck off. I’m not here to be told what to do or bossed about, and I certainly do not need the added stress of self-righteous arse holes giving me grief. I have an about me section on my website, yeah ok it could do with updating, but it still gives you a pretty clear picture of me and my life. Please do some research before you either contact me in the first place or think it’s ok to give me shit. I think that goes for every blogger you contact too.
To everyone else, I apologise that I’m struggling a bit more this year and I’m honestly trying my best for you all. Thank you for being patient and understanding. It’s people like you who make me want to try that little bit harder when I’m at my lowest and I thank you greatly for that.
Love as always,
