Officially On Hold

Hey everyone! I know it’s been awhile since I’ve updated. I’m still struggling with my health-issues. When they first came along, I kept telling myself that I can work through it and keep this blog going. But it’s been weeks now and I realize I can’t do that, and I can’t just keep everyone waiting either. I really have been working on the next chapter, it’s just so hard to be creative when you feel so crappy! So, I’ve decided to officially put this legacy on hold. ūüė¶ This is heart-breaking for me, I’ve put so many hours into this blog, and I have SOOO many ideas for future generations. I WILL DEFINITELY¬†come back to finish this legacy, it just has to wait awhile. I won’t be on wordpress much anymore, but I will do my best to keep up with your stories! You might even see short-stories from me every now and then when I’m feeling well. I am so sorry everyone! I’ll miss you guys. ūüė¶

 

Boring Details!

I know a lot of you don’t want to know all the long boring details about what’s going on with me, you just want to read the story! And that’s fine with me, but I feel like I owe those of you who do want to know an¬†explanation. If you want to know, read on! If not, skip it! Anyway, here’s what’s been going on.

These “health-issues” I’ve been talking so much about is just that. IssueS! It’s more of a ship-load of small things that add up rather than one serious problem. To start with the little things, I have both anemia and low blood pressure. Low blood pressure can cause¬†dizziness, headaches, and other symptoms, while anemia can cause such a wide range of things it’s hard to even begin to list. But, neither of those are a very big deal, I just have “off” days sometimes. Getting to the bigger things, I’ve had stomach problems since¬†Kindergarten¬† We never figured out exactly what it was, as it wasn’t a super big problem. But recently, my doctor diagnosed me with¬†Celiacs disease, or gluten-sensitivity. Which basically just means I can’t have anything with wheat or flour in it. No bread, no pasta, no baked goods, etc. NO COOKIES! *Gasp*!

So, I’ve had to stick to that lame diet. It sucks. It’s hard. It’s new….we’re still learning a lot about this stuff, and making a lot of mistakes. This is¬†definitely¬†one of the bigger things going on right now. It’s kind of a life-changing thing, even if it’s not too serious. (For me. This disease can kill people if they¬†accidently¬†get some wheat in their diet. I, however, am not nearly that sensitive!) So that is something that’s effecting me, and this blog, a lot.

One more boring health¬†explanation! Almost done (Kind of!), don’t worry! Alright, so, I was born with a condition called VSD, which means I have a hole in my heart. If you’ve never heard of that before, it’s not a very big deal. It’s incredibly common, actually. The name (and the use of the word “condition”) just makes it sound all scary. You might have even been born with it and not know it! In most babies, this hole closes soon after their born. Well, mine never closed. Which still isn’t too big of a deal. I’m supposed to get a quick check-up every 1-4 years, and take antibiotics¬†before a dentist appointment. That’s all. Shouldn’t really have an impact on my life outside of that. Well, lately I’ve started to have trouble breathing. I thought it might be asthma, as both of my parents have or have had it sometime in their life. My doctor said it could be something much more serious, though. As I grow, the muscles in my heart can change. Normally not a big deal, but with the hole in my heart, it could be. If it shifts a certain way, (or something like that. I¬†hardly¬†know what I’m talking about.) my “bad blood” could leak into my “good blood” (is how my doctor put it) and that could cause serious problems, including¬†difficulty¬†breathing. If that’s the case, and if it’s bad, I might have to have open-heart surgery to fix the hole. Scary, but probably not going to happen. That’s the worst-case¬†scenario¬† For now, we’re testing for other things that could be causing it. In and out of the doctors every week, yay! And so far everything had come back normal. Not sure if that’s a good or bad thing. So, that’s what I’ve been dealing with lately. And you just got a short medical lesson, haha.

-Boring Details Over!-

 

With the constant doctors appointments, the new diet, and just over-all feeling crappy-ness, it’s hard to do much of anything. But in a few months, when this diet-thing becomes the norm for me, and we figure out what’s happening other-wise, I will gladly come back to this legacy and finish what I started. I wish all of you luck, and I’m so¬†grateful¬†that you took the time to read my blog! I’m not giving up on it!

But hey, at least I’m not one of those legacy writers that randomly leaves for months or just stops writing all together without giving my readers any warning, right? (Trying to make myself feel better.) I couldn’t do that to you guys! Alright, wall of text over. Sorry. I just feel like I have so much to say! You guys can still always contact me about anything at anytime. I’ve helped quite a few people with their blogs (lay-outs, how to get more followers, etc) so if you need any help, shoot me an e-mail. Or you can just say Hi. ūüôā

 

PS: Sorry for any grammar mistakes in this. I did not proof read well at all!

  1. … D:

    First, it feels sad that you won’t be updating this blog for a while, but I understand. Take your time to get well and I hold my thumbs for you! ūüėÄ

    Second, I feel sorry for you. Everything that happened to you, just feels sad… ūüė¶

    I hope that you get better soon! Take your time and don’t force yourself to do things you don’t want to. It’s good that you informed this, so that way we all will understand why it don’t come anything new here.

    Many hugs to you and I hope that you get a better tomorrow (A better future and such…) so that the sun shine again! ūüėÄ

    • Thank you! It’s not quite as bad as it sounds. Things are just a bit too rocky to be updating this blog consistently right now. ūüôā Thank you sooo much for all of your support! It means the world to me!

  2. Take as much time as you need! Your health is very important, so don’t overdo it! I used to have a teacher with a whole in his heart also, and I believe he had trouble breathing also. I think his might have been a lot more severe though, as he also had temperature problems (everything felt extremely hot to him). Thanks for informing us about your break, it’s so considerate of you, especially with everything going on. I wish I let you all of my readers know when I was taking a “little” break :(! I plan on getting a new chapter in within the next couple weeks.

    I hope that everything will get better for you. You certainly deserve it :)! I don’t know if I could manage a non-wheat diet, you must be so strong to get through that. Get better soon, and know that all of your readers are wishing you the best and will be there for you when you need us :D!

    • Thank you for understanding! I feel kind of bad about updating you so much, I’m pretty sure I have more “update” posts than story posts right now haha. And you did let us know! It’s okay that you took awhile to do so, because you didn’t just disappear. You still answered people’s comments and commented on other legacies and all that. I’ve seen sooo many Sim blogs where the reader just disappears for months. No updates, no new posts, no new comments, no nothing. They just abandon their readers for awhile. It’s really rude, if you ask me! And I’m looking forward to reading your net chapters! ūüôā

      Thank you again. ūüôā It’s not as hard as it sounds! I can still have chocolate (yay!) and chips and most snacks and dinner meats are all still on the table. The hardest part is the bread. I miss the soft white fluffy flour bread so much! hahaha. Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment!

  3. Wow…
    I would just like to say that I completely respect your decision to take a break from your legacy. I cannot even imagine how hard all of this might be for you. I don’t think I could handle it! I hope you are adjusting well to your gluten free diet. No cookies, I couldn’t live like that!
    Well, I hope you get well soon and I will continue to follow your blog to see if you are feeling well enough for updates.

    • Thank you so much! It sounds worse than it is. ūüôā No cookies, but at least I can still have chocolate! haha. Thank you for your support, it means so much to me.

      • You definitely deserve all the support! My thoughts are with you, especially since you welcomed me into the sim community! I just hope that you feel better soon and I wish you the best =)

  4. I’m so sorry to hear you’re having such terrible health problems. The thing is even though they anaemia and low blood pressure are small things with the other problems you’re having to deal with they can be the little things that make you feel worse, if that makes sense! I hope the doctor can help you and you get plenty of rest and whatever you need to help you pull through this.
    I am sad to hear your legacy is on hold but I completely understand, you never know you may be back sooner than you think ūüôā
    Please take care of yourself, feel better soon and I wish you all the best. I will (and all your readers) be here whenever you decide to come back. If you ever wanna chat or anything post a comment somewhere on my blog or I’ll send you my email.
    Take care, big hugs ‚̧ x

    • Yes! That’s exactly it. Next doctor appointment is next month, fingers crossed we can get this figured out soon! Even though I’m not currently writing the legacy, I’m still always getting ideas for what should happen next! Thank you so much! ‚̧

  5. Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve looked at your blog! I hope you’re feeling better now. I have anemia too, I have to take iron supplements daily or else I feel horrible. But with all the other things you had, I understand why you had to take a break.

    I hope you will continue your legacy soon! Get better!
