Hey skilled & clever shirt designers...
I had some internet problems during the last Derby. Now my internet is fixed, but I am broken. Or at least I feel broken.
I am dealing with a chronic health problem. I've had it for more than 25 years, and it's been stable. Until now. I'm experiencing the worst flare up that I've ever had in my life.
I am treating it as aggressively as I can, but I feel like it's fighting right back. At the same time, I just found out that my insurance company will not adequately cover some treatments that would really help me. I'm still kind of in shock about this. Nothing like treating chronic health problems on a chintzy insurance budget.
To top it off, the little job shop that I work for has gotten crazily busy. My time is at a premium right now.
All of this to say that I've had to downscale my participation in the Derbies. I'm really sorry that I have to do that. I love looking at Derby entries and commenting on them. It's like walking through an art gallery!
I am still voting in the Derbies, and hanging around the website some. And when my symptoms finally get under control, I want to get back to more active participation.
Keep up the clever designing! You guys are the greatest! You've all added so much joy (and many new tee shirts) to my life.
I'm doing my best to make these chronic health problems regret the day they messed me up. I'm sticking around, and I'm not going anywhere!
