Whoa. So my last post was on November 4th....of 2015.
I didn't mean to be gone that long, but life got in the way. Just when I thought my health issues were behind me, they came back with a vengeance. In fact, I had to go on medical leave/short term disability from November through late December.
And yet again, just when I thought things were getting better, I got sick again the very last week of 2015. I spent New Year's bedridden.
I recovered, but just last week, I got sick again and went to the hospital. The ER ran a billion tests - everything from the flu to pneumonia. They even thought I might have a blood infection. All came back negative, and they gave me meds for some infection I didn't know I had. I took all the pills they gave me, and it helped the pain and inflammation in my joints go away.
So I have a new doctor who just ordered a slew of more tests yesterday to get to the bottom of this. Is it Lupus? Rheumatoid arthritis? Just regular arthritis? Ebola? Who knows. Hopefully soon, I'll find out. I need to get my health back.
Dang, a lot has happened since I last posted here.
San Bernardino attacks
Star Wars Episode VII
David Bowie's death
Glen Frey's death
Alan Rickman's death
Hopefully, I will get back to posting here weekly. With all this health stuff going on, blogging is a nice distraction. As far as my writing goes, it's been a dry well for almost a year now. My goal is to break free from that creative funk in February.
I hope you're all doing well out there in blogging-land, and that you've had a great start to 2016.
