A bit of an update

Hey guys, I thought I’d do a bit of an update as posts may be a bit off schedule the next couple of weeks. Two weeks ago I had an operation to remove a big cyst and so these past two weeks posts have been scheduled and I hoped to be better by now so I could do my posts like I was before. Sorry if I’ve taken a while to reply to comments and I know I am way behind on reading blog posts but my concentration is getting better again. I think it’s more my ME knock on effect rather than the operation that’s getting in the way now as I was feeling so much better a couple of days after the operation than I have for years so hopefully this means I’ll actually have more energy and be able to spend more time on the blog. I might even get back to the five posts a week and more of a schedule for the different types of posts with five a week like I did the beginning of last year. That’s the goal anyway.

On the plus side I’ve had to relax and not do anything much and the weather has been nice so I have been catching up on my reading and the list of to read books outside. Though I highly doubt I’ll actually manage a book a week and have read 52 by the end of the year, maybe I should stop setting it as a goal but I do want o read more and it’s one way of doing that for me.

It has also taught me that I can actually do more scheduled posts, I’m just never organised to do this and forget after a few weeks but I’ll try to get into the habit more. I always used to worry that if I did them too​ far in advance they’d get out of date or I’d have new things arrive and mess the schedules up.

Also I do have some ideas for more health related posts but not sure how many people would be interested in them. I just is I’ve answered questions in the past about geberal anaesthetic and ME so might post about that as I’ve had a couple of experiences that were very different and I know before the surgery I was searching for information on the internet about things I’d need to take and remember so might do posts on that. I don’t know. Would any of you guys enjoy interested in those sorts of posts? I feel like I haven’t done many ME and health related posts recently.

Anyway, this isn’t much of a post but I wanted to do a bit of an update and explain why if I don’t post for a bit. Hope you’re all well and that the weather’s good wherever you are. Our early summer seems to have disappeared again here in the UK.

ME, Myself and I: My Hospital Adventure

As I said last week I haven’t really been blogging since last Monday and so I thought I would post a bit about my fun trip to the hospital. Not that I think my hospital trip was anything to do with my ME in that it caused it but I did find that being in the hospital for the one night has had a knock on effect to my health ME wise which I didn’t really expect for some reason. My brain is still a bit fuzzy so I hope this post all makes sense, I’ve probably forgotten something but I might make a part 2 if I think of anything next week.

I don’t think this one needs any warnings, there is the obvious mention of hospitals in general so if you don’t like that then probably don’t read on. Other than that maybe needles but only the first bit is about the hospital, the rest is things I realised were useful in there and effects on my health afterwards.

The regular scheduled blogging will resume shortly

This picture has nothing to do with the post but I liked it and played around on my iPad apps a bit when I was in hospital so have an amazing day. It’s the sticker on the back of a parcel from Sugar and Vice that arrived in the post yesterday morning. Unfortunately the iPad app won’t save it as being centred (to me anyway) so sorry it’s a bit wonky!

The past few days I haven’t posted what I meant to as I was ill, I ended up spending the night in hospital last night but as they couldn’t find anything that was actually causing the problems and the pain seemed to fade without them doing anything to me today they decided to discharge me. Basically I haven’t had the energy or time to post a proper post or review and I’m not sure if I will for the rest of the week. I might do a short one on the Sugar and Vice necklaces on my iPad like this one because one is Halloweeny so it would be a bit late for me to post about it after that but the others I had planned this week will be moved to next week, or I’ll do a bit more reshuffling.

Anyway, this post was just sort of explaining why I might not be posting much coming up, depends how long it takes for me to recover as they said I definitely have a virus so it’s rest and drink lots of fluids at the moment. It’s so frustrating, just when I was planning on working on doing more physically I have to rest for a while and I’ve started blogging everyday but I’ll probably have to take a break from this which will just feel weird, even if it’s only for a week, especially as I’ve had Halloween themed posts planned for the past month for this week. 

See you soon, hopefully!
