What's happening everyone? I may not feel or function like a person but I'm still alive and not out of the fight yet. I don't really have the energy to go into things in any great detail but I may be finally getting to the bottom of why the treatment for my terrible sleep breathing issues is failing. The good news is that I'm managing to improve things with my new knowledge and the bad news is that my breathing issues are orders of magnitude worse than anyone realised and my faith that said issu
So as some of you may remember I experienced a miracle health improvement last year, and it's somehow been almost an entire year since that happened now, which is kind of frightening. Anyway I never posted an update so I'm going to do a quick one here. The good: the working metabolism is here to stay, and has been literally life changing. Last year I really felt like I was hanging on by a thread, but the metabolism has given me physical stamina that wasn't there before, and is (or was) improvi
So for as bad as 2016 has been for a lot of people, here I am with concrete health improvements, and I'm not dreading 2017 nearly as much as I've dreaded every other new year. Who knows, maybe I won't be dead inside in another year?? Happy new year to all.
I posted this on tumblr a little over a week ago and have been meaning to put an update here. In just the last three weeks an actual, tangible, good, potentially-life changing thing has started happening and it took me a while to accept that it was happening. It all requires a bit of a lengthy recap of my medical history to make sense, so paragraphs ahead. Some of you may remember the saga of the fatty-acid metabolism disorder diagnosis. In late 2013 I had a skin biopsy, and then early 2014 th
In an absolutely reckless fit of not being cripplingly exhausted and/or stressed, I started making something the other day and I kind of like where it's going. I also logged into my flickr account for the first time since like 2012 or something.
I realised a while ago that it's been something like three, four years since I've really been active on BZP. 2012 was the last year I was actually doing things here, and since then all I've done is visit the blogs every day out of habit, as well as make the odd post here. It feels so strange because BZP was my internet home for so long, and now I hardly know what happens here. It would be great to say that I've just moved on or have been doing things in life, but it hasn't really been like tha
I've been feeling a bit nostalgic recently, and I now have a strong desire to play the MNOG II. I've never actually completed the game ever - I remember playing it when it was on the BIONICLE website in 2003 and getting virtually nowhere, then the game eventually getting broken, and then around 2011 I downloaded a fixed version of it from BZP and got quite far, except I wound up making some horrible mistake and getting trapped in Ta-Koro without some items necessary to finish the game, and I did
So we've been planning this for a while, but next week, Zatth will be flying over here to stay for a few days. I can't believe this is actually happening?!? I haven't met any BZP buddies since Brickfair 2012, and this will also be the first time I've had a BZP friend over to stay in this little pocket of Ireland. Long story short I am super pumped, and am trying to figure out what the best way to spend the three days is. I think there are some pretty cool sheep near here?
I thought I'd make something for Sumiki's 20-pieces contest, so I threw this together a couple of days ago. It would probably be a lot better with arms and a torso that isn't a stick, but I got so carried away when I was making the legs that by the time I got to the torso I only had six pieces left. ANYWAY gasp shock horror, I made something! I'm not totally dead.
It's a big day over here, Ireland has legalised marriage equality by popular vote. There's still plenty to be done for LGBT equality here (particularly for transgender people) but it's a huge step in the right direction and I'm really happy. Here's to many more steps forward.
