This blog was written by Paul but dictated by Katie. For the foreseeable future, because of Katie’s illness, this will be a common format here at Chronically Katie.
Firstly, let me apologise for the lack of content on here over the last few weeks. As I’m sure you’ve guessed, I’ve been very ill for some time now. The ‘brain fog’ which is associated with my illness has been worse than ever. It’s got so bad that I’m struggling to read, or even listen to audio books. These are the kinds of activities which is usually fill my life with when I’m stuck in bed 24/7. The most worrying development associated with this has been that I’m seriously struggling to hold conversations. It’s not because I can’t concentrate, it’s because I literally haven’t been able to understand what people are saying. When my husband speaks to me, it’s like he’s speaking another language.
As you can imagine, these recent developments have made it impossible for me to write my own blog posts. That’s why Paul is writing this one for me. I’m relaying to him everything I want said, so this is still me, but he’s helping by putting my mumblings into sentences. This is going to be a common format for this blog over the next few weeks. I’ll let you know at the beginning of each post whether I’m writing it myself or whether Paul is acting as my scribe.
Chronically Katie YouTube channel
I’m not going to to let my illness beat me. I’m especially not content to let my illness stop me from doing what I enjoy. To get around this new wave of ‘brain fog’, I’m going to be making more videos on my YouTube channel. I’m really looking forward to exploring this alternative media format. I’ve already got a few videos on my channel. Please don’t forget to check them out and let me know your thoughts on them. I’m very new to vlogging, so it would be great to get some constructive feedback.

A quick message from Paul: Knowing how much Katie loves to get mail, many of you have been asking for Katie’s address so that you can send her stuff. We haven’t been able to establish a P.O. Box yet, so we can’t publish her address online, but you can email Katie at email@example.com to request her home address. Getting mail from her readers always gives Katie a massive boost, so I can’t encourage you enough to get in touch.
