The site I've been working at for close to two months doesn't need us anymore, which is somewhat a shame because it's the closest to regular hours I've gotten in a long while, but I won't miss driving close to an hour both ways to get to it or sitting out in the care the entire time when the weather is always below zero.

Nothing much to say about the cat lately. Scratching and chewing stuff he shouldn't a bit less lately I guess, so progress is being made there maybe. He knocked over all my figures a few nights ago, and I had to spend a few minutes reconfiguring and rearranging them because of it, wasn't happy about that, but then again I didn't do anything to discourage him jumping up there before so it wasn't a surprise it happened.

Also I keep saying this to Suds and not going through with it, and I think mentioned it here too awhile back, but I think I might watching some of those Japanese Animes the kids are so obsessed with, I've been putting it off for a long time and I've run out of other stuff to watch at this point, like Let's Plays and stuff. It's Anime or Netflix at this point, and the Canadian Netflix probably still sucks. Only thing on my list of "Must watch Animes" so far is Gurren Lagann and Cowboy Bebop, and among the slice of life Animes, I've heard the most good things about Nichijou.

If you're reading this and have any suggestions for the above paragraph, feel free to chime in.

Wife and I liked Kill La Kill a lot. That was a fun one. Uh, Parayste is good too, in my opinion. Hope things are going well.

Kids on the Slope. Just freaking watch it. It's not BL, I promise.
Dogma and I both liked/cried like babies at Your Lie in April. Both of the above are music-based.

Daily Lives of High School Boys is pretty funny.

I subbed to Netflix for the Daredevil second season, so it might be awhile yet still before I delve deep into anime. It's been a few months since I've watched Netflix at all so their's quite a lot of new stuff there, and I might wanna watch Breaking Bad again at some point.

Though, I did look at Crunchy Rolls selection and they do have pretty much everything I wanted to watch, except Cowboy Bebop for some reason, which seems like a strange omission but I'm sure there's a reason for it.

The last of the figures I bought finally arrived after like 2 months of waiting. Now I have all the ones I want and have a nice little line up of them, would take a picture but one's missing, an amiibo my dad is borrowing. He bought a Wii-U a few weeks ago, and thanks to that I got the Midna/Wolf-Link amiibo to add to the collection.

Haven't had any shifts in awhile, a little dry spell I guess. Luckily, there's nothing I really want to or need to buy other than groceries, so financially I'll be good for awhile unless something disastrous happens.

Arthritis has been acting up lately, not a lot of pain, mostly just discomfort. It's been awhile since it's been an issue, there's been a few individual days where it acted up, but hasn't been a consistent problem since before I moved I think. Hopefully it doesn't get any worse than this.

There we go, that's all the figures and stuff I bought all arranged. I wanted something Metal Gear related, but nothing looked or was priced how I wanted it, so oh well. I'm happy with what I got at this point, spent enough, not much more room, etc.

Cat keeps jumping up there and knocking them around though, not much I can do about that really, other than him him a stern "No." for it. Dumb ass cat.

Speaking of cat, here's two pictures that were on my phone that I might as well show off too.

Spoiler for Big:




My cat is good at using a bed.

Are you going to be moving the figures around much? If not, maybe you could use poster putty to stick them to the shelves so your cat won't be able to knock them over.

Maybe in the future, if I see an arrangement of them that's better, or if I add to the collection at some point.

But it's a good idea, I'll see if I can get some next time I'm shopping.

I started watching the Animes.

Wanted to stick with simple, Slice of Life / Comedy shows before getting into the story heavy stuff, ease my way into things.

Right now the master list of what I'll be trying out is...

Am adding to the list as time goes on.

Also anything you guys or Suds has suggested I'll look into, these are just the things I'm 100% going to watch and in the near future. No particular order to the list, but like I said starting off with the stuff that's simple and easy to digest.

Just finished watching Nichijou, next I'm watching Working.

Nothing else really to mention, almost worked my way up to Gold in League of Legends, that's cool I guess. Work has been minimal lately still, but it might pick up soon based on stuff I've heard or been told. Nothing to report Cat wise, I guess he's been looking out the window a lot, a think he only started doing about a month ago, so, yeah.

Be sure to vote for me this upcoming election.

I'm probably gonna have to get some part time work or something soon, I've been getting one or two shifts a week at best lately, and nothing but maybes and rumors when it comes to getting more, or shifts that are more regular.

I'm not too worried about finances just yet, so unless something terrible and unexpected happens I should be fine.

Nothing to report on the cat really, took some pictures that were cute, nothing I feel like uploading right now though I'll hold out until I either have more or something really good to show off.

Still watching the animes, not sure what I'm gonna start up next. I'm surprised how fast I'm blazing through them, I guess I'm too used to binge watching TV series on Netflix and stuff that are 8+ seasons long, or an hour per episode, or both.

Not playing much lately, getting a little sick of League of Legends but I don't feel like playing much else lately. Was thinking of playing through the Mass Effect series again, haven't played 1 or 2 if forever and haven't played 3 since it came out, so, yeah. Also I guess I finished the Conquest campaign of Fire Emblem Fates recently, it was pretty great overall, one of the best FE games.

I think I've got a fever or something. I'm always either really hot or ice cold, I'm light headed and have a headache that keeps coming back despite taking stuff for it, and 90% of the time I feel like throwing up.

Tried sleeping it off, but the temperature thing keeps waking me up, tried to pass the time doing other stuff but I don't really have the energy or brain power for it.

I hope it's just a short term thing. Shit sucks.

Also the anime list is up to date if you're curious how that's going. I'm about 10 episodes into Haruhi Suzumiya right now.

EDIT:

Taking a hot bath helped, not feeling light headed anymore anyways.

I'm feeling much better now already.

I guess a hot bath and a days worth of sleep was exactly the thing I needed.

Hopefully I'm not jinxing myself here, because I was getting progressively worse before I last went to bed, and woke up about an hour ago.

Been awhile, forums' dead but I figure enough people check in once and awhile that it's worth updating this once in while.

The last two months have been kind of rough for me, works been just giving me practically nothing for hours, and lately I've been going hard at it looking for a new job. It was going pretty bad until this week, where I got not one but two interviews in one day, one for an overnight stocking job at Walmart and one for a general labor job at some place that ships surgical tubing, or at least that's what the job service place lady described it as.

Shame, because everything else the last two months has been great, a lot of game announcements lately that have been exciting, WoW's big pre-patch happened yesterday, GG Xrd has been a ton of fun and is starting to take over Blazblue as my fighting game of choice, and just been having a lot of good times lately.

Hopefully either one of these jobs I'm being interviewed for work out and these good times continue, have myself a nice little golden age of being happy, healthy and financially sound. August is definitely a great month for releases, so how bad can the rest of the month be?

Also Buddy has been good, I'm a little worried that he's too bored in my apartment though, he's been wanting my attention constantly the last couple of months and there's only so much dangling of a thing or pointing a laser pointer that I can do each day. I think he really needs one of those cat tree things, but they're expensive as hell for a new one and never see any good deals on one in the local classifieds.

My mother suggested taking him outside, on a leash, but the idea of walking a cat is really weird to me. Though, I did see a guy walking a ferret about a year ago here, so, wouldn't be the weirdest thing in town to see on a leash.

So like I mentioned in Discord, I've been sick and had to go to the hospital recently as a result. Here's the whole story.

Since about Wednesday or Thursday last week, I've been feeling nauseous, been constipated, haven't had much of an appetite or ability to eat anything, and it got worse and worse until Sunday night when I had some serious pain in my abdominal area, and had to call my parents to get a ride to the hospital.

Spent the whole time on the way there, and in the waiting room, basically in pain and trying to A) Stay calm, B) Ease the pain and C) Try not to make too much noise as I was suffering from said pain.

It was a long wait before I got to see a doctor, 5 hours more or less, the pain did subside a little around hour 3 though so there was that at least. When I finally got to see a doctor, they did some tests, gave my an injection of some drugs for pain and nausea, and I spent a lot of the rest of my time sleeping and doing more tests.

12 hours since waking up with the initial pain and about 9 hours of being in the hospital, they told my that the problem was something called "Crohns Disease". What it is, is an inflammation in one of my intestines caused a blockage, and that blockage cause that intestine and another to create a 'bridge' between each other that shouldn't be there, or something along those lines.

No specific cause, it's just something that you pick up somewhere and effects a lot of young men. Symptoms being the above mentioned Nausea, Constipation, Abdominal Pain, and also Vomiting, Diarrhea, Weight Loss (almost 10 pounds so far), and other things I haven't experienced yet.

Right now I'm taking 8 pills a day for it, 1 less a day each week (so, 7 next week, 6 after that, etc), and I'm expected a call from a specialist who'll have to probably see me in person and do some tests soon, AND I'm on a pretty strict diet, can't eat much more than toast, soup and such, and can't drink much other than water and juice.

It's been pretty awful, one of the worst weeks of my life, all I can really do is not exert myself and stick to the diet and pills, until I'm over this. No idea how long that'll take and whether it'll be a gradual thing or not, but I hope it wont be long before this shit is cured and I'll get better over time.

Also my computer has a new Motherboard and CPU now, fucking wheee.

The Crohns and the medication have been pretty rough the last couple of weeks, I thought for awhile I was getting used to both, or that my change in diet was helping, but progress has been going down rather than up since the middle of September, and I've been having more bad days than good ones.

I saw my specialist finally, just the other day, and told him about the above. He recommended that I go back to 8 pills a day on the Prednisone, and take an additional pill I forget the name of that's supposed to help with the side effects of it. He also gave me a book that goes deep into what I can do, lifestyle wise, to help with dealing with everything, so hopefully the change to my medicine and the advice from the book will help.

It's apparently a particularly bad case of Crohns too, there's a bridge in not one but two parts of my intestines, and surgery is basically an inevitability at some point in a few years, all this medicine and these tests I've been taking are only going to delay it.

It's also not curable, even with the surgery, and won't go away on it's own either, in case anyone was curious about that. It's something that I'll have to deal with for the rest of my life, unless they discover something new obviously, I knew this for awhile reading up about the disease online but hearing it directly from the specialist is confirmation that I was waiting for, and dreading honestly. Part of me was hoping that something very new had come along that websites weren't up to date on, or even that the last of my tests would deconfirm the Crohns entirely, but nope.

So yeah, yet another thing I'll have to deal with in life. Not a heartbreaker, but it's disappointing thinking about how I'll have to be careful about what I eat and drink, or the eventual relapses, or the possible complications this might bring when I'm older. Being a 20 year old with Arthritis was bad enough, now I'm getting to the point where I'm just downright sickly, and it sucks, and the only thing I can blame are my genetics and bad luck basically.

Other than that, not much to update on. I got one day of regular shifts at my Security job I guess, after working there for 3 years and getting nothing but substitution and temporary shifts, and it's not even an 8+ hour long shift either. That's about it.

It's getting worse, I'm feeling sick more often and more intensely, I'm breaking out all over my chest and shoulders as a result of either the sweats or a side effect of my medication, and as a result I look and feel like shit, like a rotting corpse or something. I've also been really tired, but that could be me trying to get into the rhythm of sleeping days, so I can work nights.

It's depressing as hell, and if it wasn't for the fact a lot of this might be temporary until I'm done with some of my medication, I dunno how I'd deal with this shit. Every day I've woken up the past week I've just wanted to go right back to sleep, not have to deal with wanting to throw up or feeling like someone's stabbing me in my lower back, but I can only sleep so much in a day.

Specialist unfortunately had no real tips to give me to combat this, other than to rest and not stress myself out, which is what I've been doing pretty much since this started, and honestly, even before that, I'm not exactly an active person and always avoided stress whenever possible. Was thinking maybe I could up my comfort level, get some new sheets for my bed or a heating pad to use when I'm as my PC, but I can't really afford either right now, maybe next month after I've saved some money.

One peice of good news I can share, kind of forgot to share the bad news that preceded this, but... Buddy had fleas not too long ago, which my Mother (long time groomer, so, she knows stuff) thinks might've been caused when the carpets got replaced in the halls of my apartment, and after about 2 weeks of spraying the apartment, giving Buddy bathes and flea treatments, and through vacuuming, the fleas are gone. So, yay for Buddy.

Shit that sucks man. Sorry you have to go through that. Hopefully you can feel better soon once you're off those meds and as always I'll wish you the very best Pen.

Also if you are looking for alternatives to relaxation, could try making an R&R playlist. Something that would help you relax in anyway. Tea can also help. Not sure if you can drink tea since you can only eat or drink certain things, but lightly sweeten tea with just a little bit of milk can be very soothing. Besides that guess i can just suggest do what you usually do to relax and to rest whenever you can.

I'm still feeling as nauseous and uncomfortable as I did a week ago, a month ago, etc, but I recently secured myself a family doctor and have my first appointment with him on Tuesday, so that's some really good news.

Not a lot of doctors here, accepting new patients, so this is a pretty big deal even putting aside how much I need a doctor lately. My parents see a doctor who's in the same building I think, and managed to either get them to take me on or were there during a short window where they were openly accepting new patients, either way, I'm glad they could do that for me.

Hopefully when I go to see him, he'll have something to tell or give me that can help with all of this.

Some updates on a few things.

Sickness wise... It's been not great. The past week and a half I've been in the "I feel like I could throw up any minute" stage of sickness and I'm really not sure what do about it at this point, almost everything I consume seems to make it worse, but I have to eat and drink eventually, so I'm not sure what to do about it really.

I did finally get to see my family doctor though. He didn't have much in the way of advice, when it comes to deal with the nausea or other symptoms, but I am going to be getting weekly B12 injections from him starting yesterday, and maybe those will help? Might be having some changes made to my medication as well, since even though I'm down to three pills a day this week I'm definitely not getting any better. Not yet though.

Cats been good lately, he's a lot more "active" than he was when the fleas were a problem, when a month or two ago he mostly just laid around looking kinda 'meh'. He's certainly getting a lot pushier when he wants attention, used to be when he wanted a petting he's just come up to me and wait, maybe brush up against me once or twice, no now it's constant headbutting and meowing as soon as he wants it and if I stop for even a second before he's satisfying, it's cute, sometimes annoying, cute.

Work wise, I dunno if I ever mentioned it but my town is having a Casino being built in it, well my security company is one of the ones they hired to guard the place while it's being constructed and I'll be doing some shifts there once in awhile. There's mostly nothing there as of last Friday, it's a big dusty building with half built walls and a few pieces of construction equipment, but it'll be neat to see the place slowly fill up with tables and machines and such. There are slot machines there already, but they're all piled in a corner, mostly covered up and obviously not working yet.

Been meaning to play Dead Space 2 the past month but still haven't gotten around to it. Civ 6 is really good but I'm waiting for the first major patch before getting too much more into it. Also I've been thinking of maybe getting back into League of Legends sometime, but haven't committed to that yet beyond reinstalling it.

That's about it.

EDIT:

Oh, yeah, I finished the story mode of the latest Blazblue.

It's a good, satisfying conclusion to the plot. All the separate plot lines were tied up more or less satisfyingly, nothing significant is left open, if they never made another Blazblue game I would be satisfied from a story perspective. Exactly what I was hoping to get out of Central Fiction. That said, still think Continuum Shift was the best game for story mode content.
