Currently in the (overloaded) queue

Due to a combination of my lung damage exacerbated by the weather, and my wife's recent TBI, despite the huge load I have in my queue, I am going to have to cut back significantly on some of my client services between now and April. I am also finding it just about impossible to keep up with the flood of emails, phone calls, and text messages this month. . My apologies that my responses may be delayed by weeks as I try to catch up from this New Year's rush of contacts. Due to the overload I am mostly letting calls go to voicemail, so if you want to reach me, leave a voicemail, don't just hang up, calling back later that day/week will not serve you better, sorry.

In addition to a growing list of clients through RPG.LLC, RPG Therapeutics LLC, Dev 2 Dev Portal LLC, and working as Executive Director for RPG Research, and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) for Manufacturing Power, I have a huge backlog of documentation, and even books, that _must_ get resolved in the coming days, weeks, and between now and various deadlines up until mid-to-late April. Then hopefully I can come up for air again.

As some of you know, I have significant lung damage from an autoimmune disorder that took years for the doctors to track down between 2012 to 2018, and during that time my lung function dropped below 20%. When I am doing "well" it is at best 30-40% what it should be.  "Smoke Season" and the cold severely exacerbate this, and if I have to start taking regular breathing treatments during these times, the medications significantly impair my functioning for quite some time.

Due to this, I am going to have to reduce my current client work load significantly.

I have some loose ends I must try to tie up in the next few days, but then I am likely not going to be taking on any new therapeutic or technology clients between now and April. We should be able to resume the Workshops, because my employees can run those without me, so that area should hopefully be increasing soon, but they are dependent on my finishing the current 5 books in the queue.

My publishing deadlines are fast approaching, and I can't push the deadlines any more, or I will be blacklisted by the publisher from publishing for 1 year if I miss any of the upcoming deadlines between February and May.

Additionally, money is running out at the non-profit RPG Community Center, we need to get donations up to $4,000/month just to break even at current operating costs, and we're currently only about 1/10th of that from current donations. This needs to be rectified by April or we'll have to (temporarily) close the doors to the public until the funds are there to cover the utilities, insurance, etc. that allows us to allow public access.

On top of all of this, my wife recently sustained an occipital TBI and I need to be there constantly to help for the next 2-4 weeks minimum. So I am going to be reducing my regular client load in the next few days/weeks so I can stay home as much as possible during her recovery period.

I am also once again weeks behind in my voicemails, emails, social media responses, text messages, etc. Please bear with me as I try to catch up in the coming weeks.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
