I flew back from Swancon last Tuesday. Plane landed ahead of schedule. It was 4am. Spent a couple of days adjusting. It was a bit of a culture shock coming back to Singapore.

But Swancon has been awesome: nourishing to the soul and uplifting my spirits.

My birthday month was horrible (re: health issues). I am glad to see it go.

Now to focus on the positives:

1. Swancon.
2. Space opera about werewolves in space is going to be out by end of April.
3. Exercise, eat healthily, get body into shape.

Fast forward.

So, I have mild fatty liver and a 1cm lesion on my liver. Going in for a CT scan about two hours' time.

Positive, healing and good thoughts appreciated.

This has me totally strung=out and anxious.

This week in drama minggu ini…

Due to a drug allergy to the antibiotics,

I have rashes all over my body, the worst on my back, the most obvious on my upper arms.

***

On a happier note, I will be GoH at Swancon 42!

I turn 42.

Nature's given me a viral infection as a birthday present.

I am still alive. :D

I am still alive.

Fever went away, though I still feel weak/fatigued. Though I had to end up cleaning the house (sweeping, mopping, wiping) since nobody had the freaking initiative to help me when I was sick and unable to move. Well, at least, the layer of dust is gone (and we live next to a construction site, so imagine the amount of dust we get). (I am also annoyed that the said site has patches of water everywhere - and they keep on blaming homeowners for mosquito breeding, when the evidence is right there in front).

But... yeah. I am alive.

Update.

Well, I seem to have caught (suspected) dengue. So, basically from Tuesday, my body temperature went from high to low. At the moment, the panadol given by my doc is keeping the fever low and at bay. I am basically monitoring for other symptoms that might just pop up.

I pray that it's just another viral infection, not dengue, because dengue is awful.

Still writing, in all levels of the word.

Werewolf space opera is going to go places.

Less brooding online. More swordwork, exercise, eat fresh.

Ironically, my fanfic got more immediate responses than my 'pro' writing. *laughs aloud*

Cleansed the house. Got a cardio workout by mopping. Now the house smells of frankincense.

Did a burning bowl ritual. Wrote letters and burned them. Now onward to recovery.

Updates.

Well, recovery has begun apace. Writing my sword fantasy which I allowed to languish in the hard-drive for ten years. TEN YEARS.

So, a hour or so ago, I received the "feedback" from a (what I thought was) a trusted person. I received an essay-length email on how sword-fighting is supposed to be not. Classic mansplaining at its best. Needless to say, I actually blocked the person's email account - I was that annoyed.

Still writing the sword fantasy, even though it doesn't fit his world view.
