After a week of hardcore bedrest the wracking muscle pain, headache,
bronchitus, and vomitting seem to have taken a break thankfully.
It does seem that rapier on thursday could have been lethal as I had a swollen
spleen - oops.
With 15-20 minutes active for every couple hours of sleep all my rapier is on
Mono also causes a Malaise close to depression and messes with my head so I
will be staying offline except when really neccesary to avoid any inconsiderate
The good news..of a sort.. is that by age 35 only 5% of the population has
not become fully immune to the contagion. This Epstien Barr crap is everywhere
already and there is no vaccination so pretty much everyone has been exposed and
is protected. Though I still don't reccommend greeting me with a big wet kiss.
The vast majority of people have little to no reaction to the virus and relapse
like mine is insanely rare.
It was about 9 months last time, but I had no idea what was killing me then
and the worst thing to do is try to keep going without the extra sleep - which I
did - and it causes long term issues. I am pretty confident that I will be at
least functional by Beltaine in two weeks to run the championship, but I will
put some emergency backups in place for Saturday just in case.
Fridays should continue, though I might call on you Dave if things get rough
- thanks for the offer.
Wednesday Gather is just not gonna happen for me - sorry Rebecca and Andrea,
but I will be back asap.
Thursdays the Sac Arena is open, just missing a fighter, so it's up to you
folks if you still want to make the drive. Blayde, Tiberious, Jon, Justin, the
gate is open!
Sadly the individual practices are toast for a bit of course.
To anyone and anything else that got lost in the shuffle, my apologies.
