Watching: Breaking Bad
Playing: Final Fantasy 14
I have been away for a LONG time... wanna know why?
I spent New Year's in the hospital, being treated for dangerously high blood sugar and dehydration and SEVERE Ketoacidosis. I was surprised to learn that I am diabetic. Yup. Type 1 auto immune diabetic.
For the past 6 months I have been working to learn how to eat within my new rules, work with a physical therapist to regain some of the weight I lost (i'm currently about 30 lbs underweight) and rebuild the muscles that were damaged by the prolonged ketoacidosis. I've also been battling severe situational depression brought about by the sudden and traumatic upheaval (the hospital visit and subsequent weeks were painful, frightening and exhausting) and the loss of freedom that accompanied my new lifestyle.
it's only recently that i've been able to return to some of the things I like to do, including drawing and visiting favorite websites. It's nice to get some semblance of normalcy back.
I missed you all.
