It's all Dio's fault for introducing me to you losers.

On that note though, I'm back in school, co-produce a non-successful podcast.

Since I joined, hmmm, a lot has happened. Got fired, went back to school, had a massive breakdown that forced me to move back with my Mom. Since then its been adventures in medication and therapy. I'm trying to get disability, but that is an amazingly difficult process.

I know that all sounds awful, but I'm surviving it, finally found a good/functional mix of medications. But nothing is perfect. I dunno, my life got derailed and changed on a really massive scale and I have times where I think its really not that bad, and it just sorta seems unreal because I haven't been able to fully process just how changed everything is.

Eight years? Jeez. Ok.

Well, let's see. I never did finish college. Oops.

Stressed myself out so hard trying to balance school and multiple jobs that I ended up with a weakened immune system and a brain stem infection that gave me seizures but somehow didn't kill me even though no one figured you out what had happened until years later (I see a much better neurologist now).

Had a lot of jobs I hated. Stuck it out in hopes of upward mobility more than once only to have the company get sold or close my location. Gotta love retail.

Gained weight. Lost weight. Suddenly went from running 5k several times a week on a high resistance elliptical to barely starting to run and suddenly getting so dizzy I fell off it. Saw a lot of doctors. Did a shitload of tests. Kept getting more sick. Got semi-illegally fired from my miserable work-from-home hotel reservation call job while out on unpaid and HR approved medical leave. Spent like a year basically bedridden and praying for death.

Then I got diagnosed with MS, which meant meds that stopped my immune system from eating my brain and spinal cord (got a sweet hole the size of a golf ball where my speech/language center and short term memory are supposed to be and no myelin whatsoever on my cervical spine. Apparently it's impressive that I can still walk and talk most of the time). Didn't feel any better, figured the damage was done. Nope. Also have pseudotumor cerebri, so my head feels like it's constantly going to explode from the internal pressure. All the fun of a brain tumor without the obvious solution of being able to remove it. Ok. More pills. Neurologist tries to send me to a neurosurgeon but no one was willing to look further than my weight on my chart because what's the fun in fixing fat people? Also, now my back goes into spasms that leave me vomiting and unable to catch my breath, so there's a few emergency room trips on account of the whole 'blacking out from lack of oxygen' thing.

Fuck this shit. I'm dying. Give me the goddamned gastric bypass so I can at least see the neurosurgeon once before I fall the wrong way and break my neck, if only to spit on him and tell him his fatphobia killed me.

Went under for bypass in May. Surgeon found a precancerous tumor fusing my stomach to my abdominal wall in a nice cocoon of scar tissue. Thankfully cut it out along with all surrounding tissue to be safe (thanks, scar tissue?) because it probably would have silently turned into stomach cancer within a few more years and killed me by 40 if something else didn't beat it to the punchline.

Now weigh like 20 or 30 lbs less than when I joined the site, projected to lose about 50 more. Getting fresh MRIs soonish. So fucking anemic I have to go to the cancer center for iron infusions and party with the chemo patients once a week because I lost 3/4 of my stomach lining and had iron absorption issues before that.

Probably getting a brain shunt in the spring.

But hey, I finally got meds for the fatigue and brainfog that work well enough for me to get a part time job. And it's retail, but everyone seems pretty cool so far and I leave work smelling like all the candles.

And I've got a cane now, which is good for hitting assholes in the shins and waving while I yell at kids to get off my lawn.

Also, I've got a pretty cute spoiled idiot dog.

TL;DR: frontrunner for Miss Worst Neurological Fuckery 2016. Lost weight, some of which was a tumor and a chunk of my digestive system. Still working retail. Acquired dog.

- Quit miserable job for higher paying and prospectively more interesting job.
- Move out of parent's.
- Master new job.
- Got a sleep study, which turned up idiopathic hypersomnia (aka I'm sleepy all the time, but they don't know why). I get on awesome drugs, so I'm not falling asleep all the time.
- The new program I'm developing keeps running into repeated issues -- all of which require the client to make changes on their end.
- Program on hold and no new challenges. I'm bored at work.
- Dated a bunch. Turns out, I'm pretty awesome, but keep ending up on dates with women who don't want a serious relationship.
- Bought a house and in process of moving in.

I was diagnosed with idiopathic hypersomnia for a few years, and then they reviewed the records from my sleep and wake study and changed the diagnosis to narcolepsy which is remarkably similar but definitely explains my symptoms a LOT better and is less stupid sounding.

Moved from Germany to Maryland. Hunt out with some awesome people named Jeff, kari, Jenn and others from this site and their friends and family. Went to my first Jewish wedding, got hammered and slept in the marriage suite before the newly married couple. Had some great adventures. Moved to Texas, have a horrible job schedule and life pretty much speed on the social scale. Pretty soon mobbing to tacoma Washington and hopefully going to catch up with some old friends and possibly make new ones.

TLDR, I am still in the army and love all you fuckers.

I'm not really sure anything has substantially improved for me, but things have gotten worse in measurable ways.
