Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Life is finally good. Simon's first birthday today!

    Breast cancer is the easiest to detect, treat, and fix. My mom was diagnosed a year ago and she's fine. Don't start freaking out about the curse of a higher power just yet, josh.

    I'm confident she'll be okay. It's just like, when do things go back to normal?

    Is there any way to just go get everyone you know checked for cancer? Like just walk into the hospital and say "Hey, I need you to screen me for cancer, while also not giving me cancer in the process."

    I learned to stop asking that question and expecting an answer about 7 years ago, Josh.

    The biggest thing for me right now is that I feel totally out of control. Before shit started happening I felt like even if issues came up I could keep things locked down. I'm also going through the worst time in my life (psychologically speaking) and I feel like it just doesn't matter and I need to always be stepping up to the plate anyway. I mean, they have cancer; my issues can't compare.

    Rrr. Today is a bad day.

    On another note, I do go in for a follow-up with the psych clinic today and will hopefully be evaluated in a way that helps me instead of making things tougher. With all the anti-depressant issues I'm going through right now I don't think I could take it if things became more unmanageable.

    Maybe I'm different because I've been conditioned for this crap since I was thirteen? I doubt it, because I'm fairly broken at this point.

    But you pretty much just put it out of your mind and focus on what you need to do today. Don't worry about shit you can't control, focus on the shit you can. Maintain intertia, never stop doing the things that drive you in life. Engross yourself in something such that it takes your mind off things.

    Part of the reason why I'm having trouble now is that I reached my life goal, becoming a lawyer, and subsequently lost the job I thought I was going to have. I don't have a plan and I am far, far too ill to get myself back on the right track quickly enough. When I have clear goals and a clear path, I can pull myself over pain and coals to get shit done.

    So can you.

    Yeah, I'm typing this up from my campus, so I am managing to make it to classes and stuff still. Sorry to hear about your job. I appreciate the encouragement.

    Lost the job three months ago, but thanks.

    If it help at all, just remember all that happened to me last year and how I'm still here, full of piss vinegar and pseudo-angry retorts of wit and ire.

    In '06, I had a JoATs moment where everything that could go wrong, did.

    6 years later, my life is in a good spot, and I'm expecting my first child. I never thought I'd get over my mom's death or the failure of my first marriage (at the same time).

    I didn't want to use specifics, but I couldn't think of a way to say that with enough perseverance, you can get through anything. I wish you luck Josh.

    Sorry I haven't been around much, peeps. Been a busy week and a half or so.

    So. Good news/bad news.

    Christina had her last chemo treatment on Thursday. So if her next scan shows enough progress, we're done with chemotherapy. Yay.

    Unfortunately, I had a show tonight that I've been on the hook for since last year (I'm in an Irish band, St. Patty's day is kind of booked far in advance). To keep things easy on the wife I took the kids to the show with me (it was all ages). Well, in 2 hours she went from perfectly normal to spiking a huge fever. I got a bunch of calls from her family while I was on stage and I had to cancel the show and run.

    We got her to the hospital, and now she's at 104 degrees. So... we'll see what happens.

    I've been at 104.6 once, when my intestinal wall was perforated by a too rigid scope. It's not happy, it's not pretty. Keep us updated.

    Damn, man.

    Family coming in from out of town now. Called work and told them I'm not going to make it tomorrow.

    The hospital is backed up, unfortunately, but they at least got her in a room since she's immunocompromised.

    They're giving her IV and other meds to lower the fever now, and drawing labs.

    More as soon as I know.
