If you’ve noticed that I haven’t been blogging much of late, it’s down to two things.
The first is that my work picked up pace in the later half of this year, resulting in a fair number of work trips overseas. More work and days away from the country resulted in less time to blog and being too tired for inspiration.
The second is partly as a result of the first and the topic of today’s blog.
My skin woes.
If you have read my blog long enough, you’d know that I have extremely sensitive skin and suffer all too frequent eczema and allergy attacks. Here’s a vivid visual depiction of how I look right after a flare-up.
Think it looks bad? That was the aftermath. You should see me in the midst of a full-blown flare-up when my eyes can be swollen nearly shut.
As it is my skin is already none too stable, and the recent travelling that I’ve been doing has been aggravating the situation. Lack of proper rest, dehydration and stress are a wicked, wicked combination.
I’ve been trying to get my life back on an even keel but there’s just too many things and factors against it right now. Short of me quitting my job and society at large, I don’t know how else to make it all right again.
So yes, that explains the dearth of blogposts and reviews from me and hopefully things get better in 2013.
How’s your 2013 shaping up like?
