I am not totally back yet but I will be

It’s kinda strange to write a blog post about myself. I almost never tweet or blog about myself. But just for once I think it’s the best thing to do. I haven’t tweeted in a long time. I was in a car crash, for the second time in six years and needed a long time to recover from it. I won’t bother you with the details but it hasn’t been nice. Once I recovered a little bit, I DMed less than a handful of you to explain why I wasn’t tweeting anymore, but it was impossible to inform everybody. I have considered to put it on my timeline, but I don’t like to tweet and then to be unable to reply to what people write or to acknowledge that I’ve seen their tweets. So all I did for a long time was send DM’s to just a handful of you. Many of you have asked me where I’ve been, which I really appreciate and I’m very sorry that I wasn’t able to respond to all those tweets.

Tweeting about politics has long been a little bit too stressful. Posting a tweet is easy, but as long as I was unable to read other tweets, to reply to mentions, to read how people respond, it made no sense to me to be tweeting. I wanted to wait with that until I could at least be tweeting a few days a week.

I have been tweeting from a new account for a while, with almost no followers, which made it a lot easier to follow the news, sports, and to give my opinion. As long as only a few people were reading it, it didn’t ask too much of me. But now with all these issues going on, I start to feel like tweeting from this account again. Whether it’s our amazing President, institutionalized racism, our horrible Justice System or the just as horrible Donald Trump, I want to give my opinion and read yours.

I write this blog post to let you all know that I will be back, I will be starting to tweet from now on although there may still be days when I really don’t feel like tweeting. I may miss a few tweets and mentions. In about half a year I’ll start to work again. I know there’s a lot of criticism on big companies and corporations. The one I work for has been more than brilliant to me.

It hasn’t been easy, my family lives 8000 miles away and it’s a long trip for them to come and see me. They’ve been here a lot though. My friends live all over the Planet because I work in different countries. Many people had to wait weeks, sometimes even months before they found out why I wasn’t available or why I didn’t show up.

But I’m very lucky, I pretty much got the best care available while so many people who go through the same, hardly get any care. I’m not complaining.

Anyway, I wanted to thank all those who’ve been asking and wondering, I really appreciate it and from now on I will, at least from time to time, be using my regular account again. I’m sorry if I can’t reply to every tweet yet, but a few months from now everything will be as it used to.
