Happy October ~ I'm Back!

Tue Oct 2, 2018, 9:02 AM
Helloooooo my fellow deviantart peoples!  Panda Emoji-02 (Cute Waving) [V1] 

It's been a long time since I updated here.  Long story short, I got sick in 2016, I was in and out of the hospital until mid 2017. I've since been diagnosed with 2 auto immune diseases which are now under control with infusions.

I also had to deal with heavy duty side effects of medications. Medic Emote  I lost a lot of my hair, it grew back. I gained a bunch of weight, it's coming off now. I have a lot of anxiety... wait, I've always had that!
Recovery from it all seems to take forever and has been a long road but I believe remission is just around the corner!

:bademoticon: I've changed my diet, which seems to help a great deal. No junk food, no gluten, no dairy. But I still have my daily coffee  since life would end without coffee, right? 

For the last few months I have been active  on one of my blogs and still uploading to my youtube channel.

Life is mostly back to normal aside from catching up to myself. Like, getting active on my social media sites, all of them! I have so many things to get done that  I need daily reminders to take it one step at a time.
Watch Your Step 
Anyway, Happy October everyone!! I started it off with a Pocket Ghost and a story. I hope you enjoy!

Did you know?
Did you know a Pocket Ghost glows if you catch it? It's true! At first I didn't believe it, it sounded outlandish and, quite simply, untrue. Because I tend to not believe things unless I see them for myself, I set out into the woods to catch myself a Pocket Ghost.
What luck, I was only inside the woods for about 45 seconds when I spotted  them flying around in a  tight little group making strange little oooOOoing noises.

At first I tried to grab one but my hand went straight through it. I tried and tried again, no luck, it was like trying to catch air. I was about to give up when one of them stopped oooOOooing and asked me, "What do you want?" I explained that I meant no harm, that I just wanted to see if it were true that Pocket Ghosts glow when caught. He asked me to put out my hand, so I did, then he gently floated down and rested in the palm of my hand. He felt lighter than the smallest cloud that ever was and he began to glow like the sun was inside his chest.
"Wow! You are beautiful", I said to him. He giggled and replied, "No, I'm not. I'm Spooks!" Then he lifted off my hand and went back to oooOOoooing with his friends.
