      I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little nervous, but I guess odds are they're just gonna ask some questions and schedule more appointments. Hopefully no more poking or prodding at me. I really just hope they clear me to drive, this has been really obnoxious.

      My friends and I recently started a video gaming podcast called Minty Fresh Gaming! The first installment was released a little less than a day ago and I have to say, it's pretty damn funny. I didn't participate in the first one, but the three who did are super well informed and really funny, definitely check it out!

    • Medication!

      I started my anti-seizure medication the other night and oh boy does it come with some fun. First off, the least likely and most terrifying side effects are suicidal thoughts, and more seizures! I'm not too worried about either, I've come a long way since my deep depression of previous years and the seizures are incredibly unlikely, especially for someone like me who only seems to have them once every couple years.

      The more annoying parts are how alcohol suddenly effects me in an insane new way, and it's recommended that I seriously limit my driving. I guess I'll save gas, but running the risk of having a seizure and causing an accident once every couple years hardly makes me any more dangerous than the average driver. Since I'm staying with my dad for the first couple of days to see how the medicine effects me I had a glass of wine with dinner last night just to test it, and it felt like I had downed the better part of a bottle. So I guess my days of 6am cocktails and jack daniels protein shakes are over.

      Other than that I've noticed that I'm pretty dizzy right when I wake up, but that should subside after a month or so. More updates after the neurologist on wednesday.

    • Doctors appointments

      Well I had a few appointments today to follow up on the whole seizure deal. Nothing today was very helpful, just a few blood tests, but we scheduled an appointment with a specialist next week to start testing for various seizure disorders. So I guess I'll post with more information after that.

    • First hospital trip of the year!

      Almost made it to April, damn. I was working at a different store than usual on Wednesday night, to just pick up some extra hours, when something not so chill happened. After ten thirty I was the only one in the store for the overnight shift, so I started looking around the store for shit clean, or stock, or organize or whatever. I looked in the cooler and noticed that it was a total shit show, so I set the door beeper on super loud and went in there to organize it, figuring I'd kill a few hours doing so.

      As soon as I had spent a few seconds in there I noticed that the lights were kinda messed up, and flickering super fast so you couldn't really tell it was happening, but it messed with your eyes. At this point I hadn't slept in three nights, so it really effected me. It felt like my vision would shake violently for a couple seconds at a time. This bugged me enough that I would only spend a couple minutes in there at a time before taking a break, but by the time I was in the back of it I was spending a little longer inside. At one point my vision started shaking, then didn't stop. I felt my face tighten up and force my eyes closed, and when my legs started to give out I realized I was having a seizure. Being in the cooler, if I fell there no one would find my ass for quite some time. Luckily throwing myself in the general direction of the door got me out, but i blacked out pretty much right after that and didn't wake up til I was in the ambulance.

      Apparently some couple was walking in right as I fell out of the cooler, and the ambulance was there in like three minutes. That's pretty lucky. They told me when I hit the ground I pretty much knocked my ass out, I also broke my nose and took a gnarly chunk out of my lip, but I had a second seizure pretty shortly afterwards.

      So that was some pretty scary shit. I've got a couple doctors appointments tomorrow, so that'll be fun. Luckily my stress is taking the form of oversleeping like fucking crazy this time, so I'm at least well rested.

    • My second Traveller

      I've been offering up my couch to poor travelers for the past week, since when I was stuck in Phoenix a week and a half ago someone was gracious enough to do that for me, and it's been a lot of fun! My second traveler has been here for the past two nights and is leaving today, and she's been an absolute pleasure. She's moving here permanently and even starting her own non-profit organization here, set to start up in early April. I've got one more couple coming to stay over tonight, then I think I'll need a week or so to myself, but I'm definitely planning on doing this as much as possible.

      That being said, if any one you find your way to Colorado let me know! I'd love to host some roosterteeth members as well!

    • I need to go back to school

      I finished re-reading brave new world during my graveyard shift tonight, and I actually feel an urge to go over my notes and write a book report. Like, by choice. Clearly I need to get my ass back in to school finally.

      Ugh these graveyards are killing me. I feel like I'm finally getting my sleep schedule adjusted but my last one is tomorrow night then I've gotta get back to standard sleep for the rest of the week. All of this for sub-par pay? This job can't last long. I need something else.

      We claim this comment thread in the name of Left_2_R0t's overactive imagination, which claim that if we did so, then we could have dessert before dinner tonight. We get the feeling that it lied to us, but suppose it's the thought that counts.

      Hope you get to feeling better. It would be nice to meet you in person, though not sure if the feeling is mutual. We're not as mature as our age may indicate and find no reason to change that about ourself. If nothing else, perhaps we could make plans to meet up at next year's RTX. Let us know if you're interested and we can try and set up something up.
