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.
