OOC – February 1st – trying to make a comeback…again

February 1st, 2017

 

I must admit that all my grand plans of getting back on track with my writing took a bit of a detour due to medical reasons and a weeklong hospital stay.  Not a fun thing to go through, however, that part of the medical issues is dealt with and I must go back in a couple of weeks to have some more surgery done.

I have been taking some heavy-duty medication for the last few years and sometimes medicine can cause other issues that are sometimes overlooked because of side effects.  Unfortunately for me, some of my stomach issues were caused by internal bleeding that had been going on for months.  Yep, I kept wondering why I was so tired all the time and felt extremely uncomfortable.  I finally got fed up with it and had a long talk with my doctor which caused him to run some additional tests – seems I was more than a quart low.  Anyway, bedrest, blood transfusions and even more in depth medical procedures and it seems that they have the bleeding stopped.  I do have a hernia that needs to be fixed in a couple of weeks, however, they wanted to go ahead and fix the current issues and give my body a chance to heal from that before they started doing the manual slice and dice on that.  Getting older is sure a pain in the backside, however, the alternative sounds less appealing.

I know that I still seem to be taking a long time to get the energy back and there are still times that I can get uncomfortable but not anything like I went through before.  Oh well, at least I can take all the time that I need to get caught up with the things going on in World of Warcraft.  One of the things that I can honestly say is that when I feel tired or don’t feel up to playing video games, I go take a rest and watch television of just kind of be lazy and do things in moderation.

I must admit that if I get any further behind in Legion it is going to seem like I am playing the game backwards.  Still only have the one 110 and a couple in the pipeline with 101 or 102 now, however, I just can’t do the full-on press to get them leveled up like I used too.  Legion is fun for the most part, however, there are times that I feel that it is more than a little bit redundant and I still get lost on the maps most of the time.  Yeah, I know, sense of direction sucks in the game.  I have a lot of quests to turn in and can’t seem to find the place to turn them in without jumping through hoops and fighting my way back to where I thought they were.  I’ll get there one of these days if my quest log doesn’t fill up all the way again – which it seems to do daily if I play.

  1. Yeah, I had no idea getting old was going to be this awful. Thing is I would not have listened when I was young if someone had told me. I had borked my back by the time I was twenty and I’m paying for it now but it was fun when I was doing it.

    I hope you’ll feel better after the surgery. I like so much about Legion but I really, really do not feel like playing my alts at all which kind of means it’s over for me as Cat did everything months ago. For the first time in over ten years I’m thinking about unsubbing. I took it out on Netflix and Kindle Unlimited instead and pulled their plug, lol.

    • It really does seem weird that I haven’t felt physically well since Legion dropped and have had a terrible time trying play “catch up”. Gave up on that idea and now would be happy to just be able to play for a while without feeling like crap. Thanks for the well wishes and I hope that things settle down soon.
