A very rough month, one full of illness upon illness, eventually has taken a toll on my poor brain. Central Nervous System is shot to hell, basically. There were even high fevers – the kind that give a person hallucinations (and wow did I have some doozies). Days of not being able to eat properly added to that took its toll. So by now, short-term memory isn’t so great; according to my diary I have a couple health aides coming in daily but I dunno who they are myself, for example. I’m just excited I remembered this morning that I watched Ratatouille with my husband last night! You can imagine therefore how difficult it is to do stuff.
I’m having to restrict myself to a couple things in the meantime, therefore. Writing’s possible, as you can see – editing what I’m writing isn’t, though. It confuses me:(. Reading is something I can do only in tiny chunks because of bad focus. Ok, those are things I can’t do. However, I can watch TV if I’m really feeling crummy. I can also craft in-game; yes, it’s mindless activity, but well not to make a finer point of it but I AM mindless at the moment. I can have my potions maker in Terraria make 300 healing potions. I can have my metalsmiths or my leatherworkers or whatever in LOTRO do their own crafts. Or, I can go kill 365 “creature X”. I could do some mindless building in Dwarf Fortress, even. I can also do small bits of yoga and meditation.
This is a pretty frustrating time for me. Unfortunately I started getting sick the day after I started PNANO, and this morning is the best I’ve felt since then, weeks ago. I would LOVE to be able to say “I’ve gotten ‘Nikria’s Menace’ almost written out!” But I guess that wasn’t in the cards for me just now. I’ll try again when my health is much more stable.
