Still in the game.... going slow for now but I will be at full steam soon. :)

in The CTP Swarm7 months ago



It's been a tumultuous couple of weeks for me. I know I've been conspicously absent from ctptalk, and I wanted to just take a few minutes and discuss how I am doing:

First, my transition to working full time (40 hours per week) for my sofware company job has been rough. While I am able to do my job, I've been having some issues with my brain ever since my fall.

My work gave me lots of leeway: at first I worked a few weeks for 4 hours per day, then a couple weeks at 6 hours per day, and then finally 8 hours per day.

When I switched to 8 hours per day I really had some issue. I was problems implanting short term memories. So imagine making it to the end of the day and not really remembering what you did. Scary.

After seeing my occupational therapist and doctors, I told my therapist that I was 'double-dipping'... IE: I was working 8 hours per day, and then working on my autoresponder\blog and posting on ctptalk, doing dad jokes, etc. at night.

She was rather emphatic that I had to stop completely for a while because of my emotional issues, lack of short term memory retention, etc. all due to an overtaxed brain.


So I completely stopped writing for a while, and it's been a couple of weeks since I even wrote here on my blog.

However, after taking some time off of here and allowing my brain to 'reset', I am trying to go slow, and only write one post every other day instead of several posts a day.

So this is it. :)

I think long term it will be easier to create videos than write, especially at the end of the day when my brain is tired.

I am working on a way to combine it all: my hive update, my auto-responder, and website blog. I think I can do a 10 minute update via video, and that would be good enough and I can double dip and use it across formats. We'll see.

Anyway, I wanted to say that:

  • I apologize for not being in our Telegram groups. I miss you guys.
  • Eliana (@elianaicgomes)... I hope your giveaway went well. I transferred your 2K CTP that I committed to adding to the pot and a little extra for your patience :) Glad to see you succeeding.
  • Bob Caine (@rcaine) - I will reach out to you. Of all my friends on here, I miss talking to you and I will reach out soon.

I have still kept up my payments to the misc platforms that I use for my online business, and I find it quite interesting that I still continued to increase in CTP (due to my miners and my rewards for curation due to the voting done) and in BTC thanks to the affiliate programs payouts.

I may have suffered a setback with my brain, but I am not out of the game. :)

Anyway, Please be patient with me as I SLOWLY start back to working on my side business. I just have to make sure I follow the orders I am given from occupational therapy, so that I am able to do my job tasks successfully.

I have missed chatting terribly, and look forward to chatting with you all again soon on Telegram once I can reintroduce more time to my schedule.

One last request: If you are the praying type, (as I am), please pray for me and my family. My wife and children have been amazingly patient with me while I struggle through the healing process due to my injury.

Peace and love,



What BTC affiliate programs you running?

Edit: didn't mean to submit.

Glad to hear the healing process is underway.

It is so good to see a post from you again!
Thank you for your contribution, the event was a blast :)
I miss you but I do want you to get better and take your time!
If you need anything, The CTP Swarm is here to support you in any way!
All the best to you and your family!

Good to see you in the game, be 100 % wishing you perfect health, amen!

Take your time. Focus on healing. Lean on the Great Physician. Praying for you.

Great to hear that you are healing Rob, all the best wishes to you and your family, and I also agree making a short video every now and then is probably the least taxing for you to keep posting, and nice to hear that you are earning passively, stay awesome.

Prayers up for sure.

Take your time man, we're all still here when you are able to jump back on the horse!!

So imagine making it to the end of the day and not really remembering what you did. Scary.

I can't even imagine how that can be hard... :( Sorry to hear that you have a big struggle to get back on your feet...

You have done well by taking it a bit slowly... Working 8 hours and then pushing offline business is hard for 100% young person, so, maybe the "every second-day" strategy could work...

Sending prayers in your way and take care of yourself!

Take your time, your health and family are the most important things and your job is what pays the bills so you want to stay focused on that and come back here when ever it is comfortable for you.

Wow, what an amazing man and story. I prayers go out to you and family. You are the healed of God, In Jesus name

Wow, was wondering where you had been up to. This explains it well.

Just take it easy for a bit. Glad to hear that you’re still there.

I am also the praying type as you put it, so I have prayed for you and your family.

The good thing is indeed that you not have built some passive income that continues to grow even when you have to take step back for a bit. How awesome is that?

Blessings to you and your family!
