All over Portland, really. I’ve been way too busy of late and have been a terrible blogger as a result. Though, admittedly, that’s not the whole story. Long-time blog readers (hey, guys) will know that I have had an ongoing battle with depression (a.k.a. Major Depressive Disorder). The past several months have been terrible as, somehow, my body chemistry changed almost overnight and I started developing weird side effects (rash, nausea, etc) to my antidepressant. To top it off, I’m also suffering increasingly frequent migraines (Excedrin is my new best friend) and a bizarre vitamin deficiency, plus some weird metabolic thing.
Super fun. I’ve seen the insides of way too many doctor’s offices lately. But, as of yesterday, we have a diagnosis (of sorts – more tests to run!) and are working our way forward.
So, what has the blog missed in the past 4 weeks? (Apart from the doctor’s offices?) Here’s a quick run-down, in chronological order…
Sock Summit 2011:
And that’s the quick and dirty.
The next few weeks are going to involve fun medical experiments* and some adjusting. During all of this, I’ve been trying desperately (and failing) to get some Rose City Knits patterns completed. They’re close (so close!), and the next one, Helianthus, should be out in a couple of weeks. But, I’m behind schedule and not too pleased about.
C’est la vie, I suppose.
Doesn’t mean I have to like it. And I won’t. I’m angry with my body (and mind) and really annoyed at how they’re both being so difficult. If it were possible, I’d put them in time out. Since it’s not, I’ll just have to content myself with ranting on the Interwebs and sulking.
It’s a good thing I knit, or we’d be in a world of trouble right now :)
Until next time, where I will DEFINTELY finally post about the cool gizmo I found, they better play nice.
*Well, more like experiments in medication tolerance.
