The light of hope shines in your eyes

…Dementia has gone, purged from inside. [Dead Can Dance – advent]

I’ve been sick since right before Thanksgiving. If you know me, you know that I get sick to my stomach quite a bit. For a while, I suffered from something known variously as “CVS” – Cyclical Vomiting Syndrome [syndrome because they don’t know what causes it] or “Stomach Migraine.” Yes, it is just as gross and painful as it sounds. It lasted for a long time, with attacks mostly correlating with my stress levels, and eventually slacked off to the point that I only rarely get attacks these days.

However, since the Saturday before T-day, I’ve felt like lukewarm ass, with barely a break from having icky feelings every evening. The worse was right before my scheduled show at The Big Crafty in Asheville, where I ended up huggin’ the toilet and missing a craft show I was scheduled to be in for the very first time. :/

I could write that up to the stress = sick phenom, but this whole thing has been pretty not-quite-the-norm, so I’m caving in and seeing the doctor on Wednesday. Meh. Hopefully we’ll find an answer, as Dr. Naz is usually great at that sort of thing for me.

I’m not letting it get me down, however! I have been working on a new knit hat – the kitty-eared hat from Stitch n’ Bitch – and I got to see my Monkey-Sis and Ms. 155Metrocard on Saturday, when Melissa and I ventured out to catch the double-bill bout of Charlotte Rollergirls Goodness. So all is not sickness and ew, huzzah! I’ve managed to make some new and amazingly fun friends via Twitter, and I’ve been trading up a storm with Etsy folk for some faboo swag that’s made my day every time I visit the mailbox. So see, not all so bad!

I promise that I’ll give an update as soon as I know something about what ills me. Keep yer fingers crossed, would you? ♥

I write, as openly as possible, about my experiences with life, love, creativity, depression and not-depression. I share opinions. I promote compassion and change. I talk about music. I also write poetry and short stories. I like to share them here.
