Mostly a health update
It seems to have been ages since I've posted anything in livejournal. I have been very short of energy and not doing much except for playing Elder Scrolls Online and hanging out at home with Richard and on Skype with Shifty. Seriously, I've hardly been out of the house in the past month. I miss the friends that I haven't been seeing, but I haven't wanted to be social much either.

Still don't know what's going on with my heart. Apparently I didn't have enough spoons to write about my trip to Cardiology at Queen Mary's Hospital in Roehampton, but it wasn't very exciting. They did a super-amazing high-definition ultrasound of my heart and it looked entirely normal. I have an appointment at the absolute crack of dawn on 15th November at St Mary's in Paddington for more tests. Am far more anxious about the tests than about whatever is wrong with my heart.

Two weekends ago my evil sacro-illiac joint decided to play up and I had several days of intense stabbing sensations in my spine, plus the horrible numb referred pain in my left thigh and finally the proof! that all that is wrong with my left hip is that it's connected to that part of my spine. Fucking ow. I have, however, discovered the perfect way to describe my back pain. It isn't "sharp" or "dull" or any of those words that people use. It is like being stung by an insect or pricked by a needle approximately once every 3-5 seconds. And yes, it's about as distracting as this sounds, which is another reason why I haven't really been in contact.

Last weekend we went up to Wolverhampton to see a whole load of bands, which was great apart from the fact that Richard and I both came back with a stinking cold. It was weird because we don't normally catch a cold at the exact same time, so we've been able to compare the progression of it. And it turns out that my shitty immune system isn't all that bad when compared to Richard's. We're both quite unwell still, though.

I really need to write about all the bands I've seen lately because I have been to some good gigs, but that would require ability to do coherent writing, plus sufficient spoons to pull setlists off my phone and photos off my camera, which is a little more than I can manage right now.

It's currently 6th November and I wanted to do NaNoWriMo this year. I'm not well enough to be doing much with my academic work, but I could conceivably sit down and bash out another 50,000 words of fanfic. Maybe even get my epic story finished. Is it too late to start now? I guess I could catch up, maybe...?
