Back around Valentine’s Day, I got pretty sick. When I went to see a doctor, I was diagnosed with stomach flu. I had thought it was something I had eaten. I was miserable that first day. Over the first few days, there were times that I woke up in the middle of the night and had to rush to the bathroom. When I went to see the doctor my blood pressure was unusually low so they gave me some juice to drink while I was there. This lasted about a week.
I’m just now getting over some kind of cold/crud that I’m sure I got at work. A few people came down with this. The person who was patient zero was sick for a while , but for me it was over and done with in about 2 weeks. I had sniffles for a day or two, but the rest of the time I had a bad cough. I’m glad it’s gone.
Hopefully I can go a few months without getting sick again. Being sick is no fun.
Not a whole lot has happened around here lately. I make an appearance here and there at birthday celebrations, but I mostly stay home. I’ve been sick for most of the past couple of months. Whatever I have is spreading around the lab I work in. Some days it seems like everybody’s coughing. There was actually a 2 week period where I was feeling file, but when I came back to work one Monday, another guy and I were both sick again. I feel better than I have in a while today, but the sickness is still lingering around.
Alex and I stopped dating about a month ago. It was his choice. Nothing happened. He decided that he wasn’t ready to be in a relationship and just wanted a friend that he could be himself around. I never made that post about him that I promised. We met in the spring or summer of last year at a gamer meetup and became friends after we kept seeing each other at various events. When I made that Facebook post at the end of the year with the goal of wanting to go on one date this year, he told me that he had been wanting to ask me out for a while. I’m glad he did because I would’ve never known. We had lots of fun together while it lasted. I was always happy about the fact that we met the old fashioned way and not through an app. We still talk to each other every day and we’ve hung out a few times since then.
Alex did get that job at The Wet Spot and usually works there a few days a week. I’ve added more fish and plants to my aquarium. I’m trying to resist the urge to keep adding things. I’ve cut myself off, but Alex says I could probably get a few shrimp. Right now I have 8 cherry barbs, 5 black skirt tetras, 5 cardinal tetras, 4 algae eaters (otocinclus), and 4 bronze cory catfish.
Pride is this weekend. I’m not sure if I’ll do anything besides go to the festival. I feel like I should do more, especially after the shooting in Orlando last weekend. I can’t wait to not be sick again.
I want to start drawing again. I guess Alex rubbed off (he’s a painter). I used to draw some when I was young, but it was mostly trying to reproduce picture in books. I also think I want to do stuff on Youtube and stream on Twitch more often.
Hopefully, this summer will be more eventful. I have lots of ideas, just not of time.

I finally broke and went to see a doctor Friday. I got to a point where I wasn’t getting better and I’m going to Las Vegas in less than a week. I was better when I was at home, but I felt like crap when I was in our cold office where we have no control over the temperature and when I was out in the cold. It turns out that I had bronchitis. I remember having bronchitis once when I was in high school. The doctor prescribed a Z-Pak and some cough medicine. The next day I felt so much better, even when I was in the cold. I’m glad to finally be getting over this sickness.

Oh man, I’ve been so sick. I started feeling something coming on the day before New Year’s Eve. On New Year ’s Eve I was sick, sneezing and runny nose and all. I didn’t get to go to Ground Kontrol for their NYE celebration like I wanted to. One week later the worst has passed. I still have a weird taste in my lungs and my voice isn’t where it should be. Good thing I had some time off, so I didn’t have to work as much during that time. The year hasn’t started off well, but it could have have been worse.
