Quick update, I am back to Bangalore. I have cancelled my remaining leaves and resumed my work. It feels great to be back after such a long break. The sabbatical did not go as per my intention but the best part of sabbatical was my recovery. My bipolar episodes have reduced to a minuscule. I am quite happy about the new development and I will be visiting psychiatrist soon and just cannot wait to share this news with him.
Currently I am having issue with my reading speed and writing block. The block is irritating me for quite sometime. But with such block I was able to write two important pitch mails about my client. I have also written one short story. Apart from that I am unable to write. I think I still need time. My friend asked me to write on the block .
The block chokes me from within, I feel my writing tastes insipid. The words yell at me asking me not to wake them up as they are not ready to bleed yet. They ask me more time. I feel I am walking on a blank space and I cannot hear or see anything. At times I wonder whether my brain has become used to its idle state and is lazy to even think! Crazy right?
Reading speed has drastically dropped. I am dragging a book for weeks rather than just few days. I have read three books and left it in between. They are interesting read but I had to put it down due to disinterest towards written words that crept in me for sometime. Currently, I am reading Preeti Shenoy’s Why we love the way we do. I am quite slow with the book.
Even with such setbacks I am still optimistic that I will be soon be bouncing on all that is left behind like it never happened. Till then keep reading and do let me know how did you like this post.
