hey, y'all! guess who's not all weirded out on drugs anymore! yay for pain meds kicking with little to no side-effects! I was so stressed about turning into a vegetable again--and not being able to drive anywhere--or turning into a constantly hungry beast or I dunno, blowing up. luckily, the worst thing about these meds is that they seem to amplify my seasonal allergies? I spent most of the weekend sneezing repeatedly, until I realized I'd stopped taking my allergy meds. Stupid Ely.
|you and your forgetfulness, woman|
let's just say I'm very happy with my pain-free state. this is the closest I've felt to "normal" since August, probably. granted, I have even more food that I can't eat right now, because we're trying to eliminate the problem instead of just treating the symptoms, but that also has a little piece of sunshine to it.
I can eat dairy again.
I got "tested", and I didn't react to it like we thought. Which I am totally thrilled about. I've been having MnMs in very small portions spread out over several days, since we don't want to completely shock my system with a bunch of dairy (because my autoimmune system is basically a frazzled cat who snarls at everything it comes into contact with), but let me tell you: it's been amazing. I'm excited for the day when I can have sour cream again.
|I'm basically crying over food 24/7 because there is literally nothing I can eat besides meat, veggies, and fruit...no eggs, rice, corn, or milk (in large amounts) for me right now.|
I get excited by simple stuff, okay?
enough about my health. this next month, I'm really hoping things will settle down and I won't have to be constantly updating you guys about my condition. I want to focus completely on NaNoWriMo and my great characters (see what I did there?)
|I'll take my bad puns and leave|
I can't believe NaNo starts in two days. I got some prep done while I was taking my week off, but I still hardly feel ready. It's a little scary, especially since I'm taking this NaNo very seriously (last few years, I had some major issues putting my inner editor away). Hopefully I'll be able to get my goals accomplished.
|basically me all this november. gotta get that writing done|
Also, look at this beautiful song. Just listen to it. Just this song makes me want to write an epic novel (and basically all of the Tokyo Ghoul story too, but whatevs). Consider this a sneak-peak of my anime post that will be coming in the next week or so.
speaking of upcoming posts, November is a big month. Not only am I three posts away from 200 (two now, I guess), I will also reach 20,000 views SOON, which is very exciting. I've also had some major snippet posts in the works since I decided to do NaNo; we'll be going back and looking at some of my old babies and past NaNo projects. And I'll be updating you guys about my progress, of course.
*has a private dance party of one to Mansae*
what did you guys get up to while I was gone? any new books or bands in your life, or did anything awkward happen? (come, tell me your story, I'll have a cringe attack with you).
I hope you guys had a fantastic week, and I can't wait to spend November with y'all!
