Hey guys, I have worked on this book and another book simultaneously for the last two years. Could it be that I am just mentaly drained? I have had to edit, read over the abuse book many times and I think that looking at it over and over again could have caused me some stress, taken my strength. Having it come out was explosive and exciting but I think it has spun me into a downward spiral. Just thought I would ask.

Thanks

John,

Working on a book like this would have been, hopefully, a positive and cleansing experience, but at the same time one that obliged you to look at a lot of things more closely than you had done in the past. The vivid colors and jagged edges would have been there everywhere for you. I hope it has not thrown you into a downward spiral, but I cannot imagine how it could have failed to be emotionally draining.

Much love,
Larry

Larry, I think you are right on the money, emotionally draining is what I should have said.

I am just tired. I worked during the day and looked over the book every night during the editing process. Two books at the same time, the other is a professional book in my field. I am just worn out from that I believe. You know how stress triggers us.

Larry, I think you are great at helping others, you know a lot.

John,

Thanks for your kind comments. \:\)

Try to be careful here. Burn out can happen to any one of us bro! Try to relax and be satisfied with the two books. That's a great achievement.

I am a university academic and I don't even know how many books I have published anymore. But still, when a new one comes out I want to stress over it and wonder what silly mistakes will be found in it. But now I tell myself that no book is ever perfect, and what I wrote is what I needed to say at that time. I realize I have to be happy with that.

Much love,
Larry

Larry, all I can say is thanks for your kindness. You know what you are talking about and it always helps me. I hope you are around here for a long time, we need your help. Now I understand why you understand what I am going through. "I don't even know how many books I have published anymore."

Thanks,
