Evening, everyone.

So, as some of you know from our discussion on our regional Discord server, I have been going through several major health problems over the last few years. It would not be inappropriate to call me 'sickly', I guess - I've been dealing with several chronic illnesses that have made life pretty miserable at times. One of the reasons I was so active my first two weeks here at TEP was because I couldn't really move around much because of my legs; I was pretty much immobile, so I sat in my chair all day with my computer.

I tell you this because this afternoon, I had a gallbladder attack that made me extremely sick. It also caused pressure in my chest, dizziness, and weakness. The doctors aren't sure if these symptoms are related to my gallbladder, or if there's an issue also with my heart. Sitting in my chair, I very nearly passed out in the middle of writing a post for the forums, and took almost an hour lying down without moving before I started to feel normal again.

Because I have responsibilities here in the region, I wanted to make it public knowledge that I am battling through some issues. The last time I had an attack like this, I spent several days in the Hospital, and obviously when you have to go to the ER, you don't always have time to warn people. So I wanted to leave this message here, alerting people to what was going on, and letting people know that if I were to suddenly drop off the face of NS Earth for a few days, that it's not a permanent absence or anything like that. If and when I do have medical problems kick up that will pull me away for awhile, I'll do my best to get word here as quickly as possible.

Unless I kick the bucket, I guess - that would be permanent. But I don't have aspirations of kicking the bucket just quite yet. In the interim, I'll carry on with my responsibilities here, but I just wanted everyone to be aware of what's going on with me and to at least have it written down where I may sometimes have brief hiatuses in the future.

Thanks for keeping us up to date, Mas. Please take care of yourself - health is much more important than a game, but you know that. I've had my gallbladder removed, and if it's the case that it's your gallbladder, I can prolly lend some advice on food to stave off attacks until it's removed.

The gallbladder issue is a major problem; I'm having problems with it, even though the function is still relatively good, which is why it's been so difficult to have surgery to remove it. Any advice you have would be most helpful!

Hey guys.

So as I mentioned to a few people earlier this week, I was dealing with some health stuff that might limit my activity for a few days on here - hard to do much typing when your hand is aching non-stop. The good news is that this problem never really got super bad, so that's some pain that I got to avoid. The bad news is that I've gotten very sick over the last few days. My brother is going to have to take me to the ER in a few minutes; apparently, I haven't had enough go wrong the last few years, so my appendix decided that IT wanted to join the Lame Parade.

I dunno what the timetable is for getting to come home, if they'll yank it out immediately or try meds - I have zero experience with appendicitis so I can't say for sure. All I know is that I could use some prayers right now: I'm kind of a high-risk patient for surgery, and an emergency surgery is going to compound the problem. When I have the ability to update everyone, I'll check in as soon as I can.
