I want readers to know that I read every comment. I appreciate you taking the time to thoughtfully comment on my writing. For a variety of reasons, most of which are health related, I find it very hard to keep up on the comments. (and the same goes for Facebook and Twitter)Β  I just want you to know that my lack of response has nothing to do with your comment. I greatly value those who take the time to comment and I hope everyone will continue to do so.Β  If there is a specific question you want me to address, please make that clear in your comment or send me an email. I will do my best to respond to your question.

Each day, I have a limited window of physical ability, so I try to focus on my writing and keeping this blog operating smoothly. I find it impossible to write, maintain the blog, and respond to every comment. My writing is often cross posted on No Longer Quivering. Usually, there are a fair number of comments on the post. Again, even though I want to, I simply don’t have the time or physical wherewithal to respond to every comment.

What I want to convey here is that I don’t want anyone to think I am ignoring them or don’t appreciate their comment (s). Make sense?

Have a great weekend.

    I found a post a while back that explained spoon theory. With fibro I have limited energy each day. Sometimes I have six spoons (or units of energy needed for tasks), some days I have only one spoon.
    Whatever unit works best for you but when I tell the people in my life it is a low spoon day they understand.

    I’ve commented a lot lately. If I need a direct answer I’ll let you know. So far I’m just grateful for the opportunity to share.

    recent reader of your work here…. much appreciated….your need to pace yourself is understood… and again, thank-you for doing what you are able to manage.

    Bruce, you can say more in a sentence than most can say in a chapter.

    Don’t worry about us, do what you need to for you and your family.

    Glad you can still keep this blog going. It has helped me sharpen my beliefs. When I first started reading, I still considered myself Christian. Reading this blog has helped me to see that I’m not a Christian. In a way, Bruce, you are my pastor. πŸ™‚

    Well, I can’t call myself able-bodied. And I do the chronic pain thing, too. (A reason I wish there were a hell… those asshole work-comp attorneys would go there for sure. I’d even agree to help send them.)

    But I have a full time job and a regular life. And fewer comments and readers by far than you have.

    And I still can’t keep up.

    So do what you can. Anyone who doesn’t understand will quickly get set straight by the rest of us. πŸ™‚

    I’m sure 99.9% of your audience is 100% behind you being behind. πŸ™‚

    Thanks Bruce, for all that you do. Honestly, you are such a prolific blogger as it is, I don’t know if I could keep up with you if you were ‘healthy’! Just keep on keeping on. You are such an inspiration.
    My reason for commenting is just that, to comment. No response expected. Just so you know, I’ve never felt rejected because there is no comment to my comment.

    As long as you keep writing, I’ll keep reading. πŸ˜‰

    Hi Bruce,

    Your health is of prime importance. We all appreciate your blogging, but slow down when you need to. You are an inspiration, Your writing is so clear, logical and coherent and makes us all think.

    it is very much appreciated and we all want to see you around on the net for many years to come. If you feel you don’t have time to answer all the comments, that is okay. If your health does not permit you to write as many posts, that is okay.

    We all want you to continue blogging, but slow it down until your health gets better, We are all patient and your long time followers will still be here. The main thing is to get well, not only for each of your readers, but especially for your family.

    Whatever you do, please, please DON”T delete this website.

    Your internet friend,

    John Arthur

    Bruce, I don’t expect a response to my comments. But your posts are great at starting a comment thread where we respond to one another’s comments, which I also find helpful. So thank you for keeping the blog going, and of course you have to take care of yourself or you won’t even be able to do that. (I know from your history that you tend to push yourself pretty much to exhaustion…)
