Delays, and Apologies

This will be short, friends. Short and sweet.

Things with Jacquelynn have not been fun this last while.  There are still good days, but they’re often bracketed with mania which makes managing her care a challenge, at best.  We’re contemplating a number of options, which include possibly selling the house and relocating altogether.

As far as this blog goes, I have simply been far too busy and stretched too thin to write.  I’m not quitting, but I don’t anticipate frequent updates soon.  Over the last few months, I’m averaging around 11 hours of sleep weekly (though the last few days have improved on that quite a bit), and am kept constantly running just to try to keep Jacquelynn on an even keel.  I compare it to a single parent of a terrifyingly intelligent toddler who is also prone to unpredictable outbursts of mania and even (though rarely) violence.

I beg your patience, and I’m grateful for your continued prayers and bright, beautiful, hopeful thoughts.

Matthew

    • Linda,
      Her episodes of mania (what I’ve called “manic panic”), have been a part of this equation since long before she was put on the supplements. They vary in intensity, and when we began this program and she was still improving, we went for several months without ANY episodes. They increased in intensity and frequency as 2018 drew to a close, and our Christmas Miracle saw them stop completely until she got hit with an infected tooth followed immediately by two consecutive kidney infections and their attendant cognitive side effects. She’s rebounded a bit, but the episodes have gotten more frightening and even violent lately.
