An Explanation

Dear Wise & Shine Readers:

As some of you might have noticed, I’ve been mostly away from the site in recent weeks. 

I’m writing to let you know that I’ll be taking a leave of absence from the blog.  I’m suffering from extreme burnout.  Additionally, I was recently diagnosed with an incurable degenerative condition.  I won’t die from this illness, but I will become increasingly disabled.  There are things I can do to slow the progress of this condition, and I am changing my life in ways that could help.

The burnout and this diagnosis have been a bit too much for me.  I’ve always been the sort to just push through difficulties and hard times, but I think I need to take a different approach on this occasion.

I will return and become active again after I’ve gotten myself into a healthier mental state.

I want you to know that I feel bad walking away from the site like this.  I apologize for letting all of you down.

Troy Headrick
