Break from Blogging

Unfortunately I have to take a break from blogging.

My me/cfs ( myalgic encephalomyelitis /chronic fatigue syndrome ) has been affecting me for a while now so that I can rarely think at the required level to research and write.

Although I have published a few posts in the last few months, I have not authored one myself for about 6 months I think. The time I manage to work on child abuse is spent answering mail and peoples questions and trying to keep up with events.

This is obviously extremely frustrating for me, but I just wanted to let this be known to explain my blogging silence.

I will still tweet on twitter as that requires much less brain power!! @cathycathyfox

[Update 6 march, I have been locked out of my twitter account for unusual activity that is against twitter rules. I have to put a phone number in which is an old phone number and I don’t know whether the phone sim card can be found.

Interestingly I had started another account, never used and when I was copying friends from my old account to this one, they locked that one as well for unusual activity. That was also an old phone number attached to it, so it looks like another account gone. I may well have rest from twitter – the censorship is getting absurd.

These links give some ideas for other social media accounts ]

Update 7 March Twitter say my account exhibited automated behaviour, against their rules. Of course there was no automated behaviour.

If anyone wishes to contact me about anything, please contact me on and I will answer as best I can, but it may take some time. I have to work round my bad times and wait for the good times.

Obviously I want to continue blogging in the future, but I will see how it goes.  At the minute I often end up at staring at the screen wondering what I was meant to do next.

My heart goes out to all the victims of child sexual abuse, and over the last few years I have put my heart and soul into trying to help survivors by exposing what has been happening.

I hope I can continue to help in the future, and hope this is an au revoir rather than a goodbye.

As well as my usual help links below I have printed some more useful worldwide helplines and email addresses that are worth checking out.

    Totally understand Cathy. I have co-written a book with a CSA survivor from Australia, it is 99% done and she has fallen into such a deep depression I’m not sure the other 1% will ever get done. Suggest you get completely away from it for at least several months. You have done more than your share. God bless. Gary

    Wishing you renewed health–as a former writer who is often silent now due to chronic pain, my heart goes out to you. Thank you for this post so full of great resources. You do so much for so many, thank you for all of your work. Praying for you, it is important to take care of YOU–because sometimes we give to others until there is nothing left of ourselves to give!

    Interesting…enjoy your break. In respect of the Inquiry into abuse, I believe there is some serious corruption occurring, particularly in respect of the Westminster strand. Additionally, there appears to be a social media and blogging propaganda campaign surrounding it….outrageous. Like I said, enjoy your break.

  15. Hi Cathy. Nice to meet you. I just came across your blog. Sorry to read on your myalgic encephalomyelitis. It must be awful. Sometimes I think I have the same. Or maybe is a different condition. I don’t really know cos I never check with doctors unless I am literally dying. But I do know the feeling of being constantly exhausted.
    That being said, and after I quick look around, I’ll tell you this from experience: some topics exhaust our minds more than others.
    I spent nearly a year researching child trafficking networks. Besides all the sick information I found, I’d tell you something else. I have an overactive mind. I would go to sleep and have nightmares all the time. That is, the nights I could sleep. I would be in a foul mood often. I lived on caffeine and nicotine and beer for months just exposing networks and doing research.
    After a year I had to take a break because it takes a toll on your health more than anything else does. Is sick, evil and twisted, we all agree. But there is a constant need to find more and expose more. And the further you go along researching the more twisted and sick stuff you find. But is like an addiction to find and expose. It does not good for your mental state and to your physical state.
    My advice would be this: take a break. Concentrate on other things that bring you joy for a while. Whether is writing or something else. Stay away from the topic for a few months, so you can come back with a fresh mind to it.
    Obviously, don’t take my word for it. But I do mean well
