Hello and many salutations, I am a writer/ editor who has been stalking stories here for a few months now and finally gathered the courage to make an account. Cheers!

    Alright so official date for being active again

    So for the past month I’ve been dealing with really bad depressive episodes (dysthymia) due to being sick for so long. It’s affected everything in my life, and as if that were not enough my cat jumped on my iPad and my screen crack is now bad enough to warrant repair. Which I can’t do till June.

    Alright, doing better.

    It’s been an insane few weeks, been recovering well.
    Still very weak, but by June or so I should be back to ok levels of health.

    I’m still working on stuff on the side for fimfiction.
    I’ll publish it in June. Recovery is slow but steady.

    At least I don’t look dead now.

    So...sickly new year..and sick leave

    Ok so easiest way to explain why I’ve been silent.
    Why I didn’t finish my planned works.
    All of that?

    Apparently after everything I went through last year, here I am in February in a similar though less immediately perilous situation to the one I was in in 2018 and 2017. Though I got a valentine.
    It was from my mom..but hey I’ll take it since I’m kind of depressed over this, naturally.

    Silence of the Glen is broken

    So I didn’t do anything in October. Now it’s november.
    I still intend to update my sci-fi story, and put the next chapter of the hospital horror prologue up over the next week.

    My reasons for not finishing anything were important though.

    Best news, health update.

    So my blood tests came back.
    And my thyroid levels, without supplements, are literally perfect.
    So part of the reason I’ve been so sick is because I’ve been taking my usual thyroid supplement, without knowing I didn’t need it anymore, and overdosing thus inducing a hyper thyroid state, making myself very sick on accident.

Best news, health update. · 1:41am Oct 23rd, 2018

This is good news. As in beyond good. My thyroid gland has fully recovered, I’ll likely be detoxed from supplements over the next few months. And in three months tops my body will be healthy again. I still need the other imaging done but really, this is awesome.

Anyway, stories will be updated tomorrow. I got sort of side tracked by the health news today. It’s just...I can’t describe how happy I am right now.

Thank you, I woke up today feeling better emotionally just knowing that the cause was, of all things, a sign I’d recovered from one of my long term conditions. After I repair my car I’ll be getting back to finishing up some chapters. It’s like a weight has been lifted off my entire body and mind.

It’s more my body than me, though I’m pretty sure my doctor is stunned right now. You are not supposed to recover from severe thyroid damage (at least the kind I had), and it’s been a part of my active conditions so long even I didn’t think it was a possibility that my thyroid had recovered till very recently. Nor did my doctor.
It’s going to take time to get used to only taking one pill in the morning (an antibiotic specifically), even after detox. Also for the first time in my life I will have no little, round, white pill (synthroid looks like that, so do many other meds) as part of my daily routine. As wierd as it sounds, that’s going to be difficult to get used to.

Yeah, and it’s possible I’ve been overdosing for a year at least. Since the brain fog and all that seems to be directly linked to this, I just didn’t notice with the whole relapsing due to missing vital treatment that was fixed in February thing. Well as for art, I’m doing personal practice hand drawn sketches right now and if I’m able to start detox soon I’ll be back to the art thread exactly one year after I started the hiatus. That would be next month, November. Also the strangest thing may have been found out due to this concerning my ancestry. I’ve had this wierd paralysis thing that isn’t seizure related for awhile, turns out it’s a side effect of hyperthyroidism linked to a specific genetic mutation found almostly solely in populations from specific Asian nations. It’s probably a few centuries back, but I might have some Asian ancestry in me.

You're not supposed to recover from DKA with a blood sugar reading of 1,080 either, but I did. I'm SO glad you beat your issue. *hugs* Can't wait to see the output from the new and improved detoxed you!
