Chris Pope is back in business, but what happened?

Okay, so first off, I’d like to thank everyone who has been in contact with me and been concerned about me. Thanks so much for the emails I got from fans as to my whereabouts and I apologize for any of those that I didn’t reply to…

The truth is, I’ve been virtually out of commission for around 3 weeks. Not to get to wordy with all this, but for those that don’t know me personally, I have a sleeping disorder that is pretty severe. It is a type of disorder that causes me to be EXTREMELY tired and withdrawn from everything and everyone including family. I’ve had issues with staying awake while driving before, even to a point of falling asleep and running into the back of someone before. All my life I’ve struggled with it at different times but always just figured it was normal to be sleepy all the time. My wife and I finally had me checked out 2 years ago in which they put me on a medication that doesn’t cure the problem but basically allows me to function and not be tired all the time.

About 3 weeks ago I went on a business trip and got real sick and my sleeping cycle got skewed, but on top of that, the medication I’ve been taking for about 2 years appears to not be working anymore. We assume that my body is getting used to it…

To make a long story short, I got a second doctors oppionion and he has me on something else that should replace my old medication. It has taken a few days for me to get used to it, but I’m FINALLY starting to feel better! 🙂

I apologize to everyone for not podcasting or twittering or facebooking or all the other things I normally do. I’ve also had to apologize to my job and family as this has of course taken its tole on them as well. But I am extremely happy to say that I’m back and ready to get moving again! So be on the lookout, Tech Jives and CED Solutions is about to start rolling out all kinds of new content! 🙂

Thanks again for everyone whos contacted me!
