I’m baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

Figured the picture would get your attention better than the title πŸ˜‰

So it may, or may not have been noticed that my post count of late has been severely low. Worse than low actually, non existent would be a more apt description.

While it seems horribly blasphemous to say so, its just that with all that has been going on in real life lately, anime just wasn’t high on my list of priorities.

I’d been struggling to care whilst I recovered from surgery and getting healthy. After then being kicked in the teeth by life again, I needed down time and focus on getting healthy yet again.

The situation is still ongoing, but I’m feeling more positive these days, although I’m sure in the days ahead I’ll again have times where I feel blah.

To be honest, going through everything again scares the bejeezus out of me. But I’ve never let fear stop me from doing anything (I’m even getting better at squishing spiders, instead of just shrieking like a banshee whenever I see one!) and this is no different. So I will forge ahead like I always do and hope that one day there will be a happier outcome.

So my post rate should be increasing again, but I’m pretty sure it will be slow going, since I am sure there is a huge amount to catch up with.

For all those I talk with outside of here, who’ve been keeping up with me and being supportive. Thank you so much. You don’t know how much I have appreciated it and how much it has helped me get through the bad days. ((HUGS and LOVE to you all)).

Right now what’s been going on in my absence? Choux has the plan for world dominance been implemented yet, or did I forget to give you the keycode for the weapons bunker where I stashed the Gundams?

  1. Welcome back, Sakura! πŸ™‚ I am glad you are feeling better, and hope you’ll re-cover completely soon! I admire your determination! Good luck! πŸ™‚

    World domination? haha So scary! XD

    • Thanks Kitsune πŸ™‚

      Another reason my post count will be slow is that I will need to catch up reading other blogs. So I’ll be dropping by yours for a visit here soon.

      Choux and I will be very fair Supreme Overlords πŸ˜‰

  2. Welcome back, since I began lurking here you and Choux are the only writers i ever saw lol (not that I’m unahappy bout it) hope you get better. And bunker-filled-gundam? ME WANT!!!

  3. @ rockmanshii

    Thanks πŸ™‚ I know we really should update the authors page I suppose.

    I’m already feeling a ton better, some of that has to be with doing what I want for a bit and telling the doctors to stuff it.

    Though I’m sure at some point I’ll have to follow some of their rules again. But for now, I’m rebelling a bit and it feels good!

    Yes a bunker filled of awesome mecha, its a beautiful sight indeed. Always brings a tear of joy to my eye πŸ™‚

  4. Yay! I’m guessing the surgery went well, and I’m glad that you’re recovering! I’ve only been following this blog for a very short time (short being a little over a month), so I gotten the chance to see posts from others besides Choux (going through the archives is a hassle…XD). Still, I’d love to see your posts whenever you get the chance! ^.^

    (By the way, if you gals recover all of the people from the author’s page, then this blog’ll be the exact opposite of SSAB…an all-female mostly-editorial blogging site. THAT’S AWESOME!)

    • Thank you. It did indeed, unfortunately things happened after surgery that I also needed to recover from.

      It would be awesome if we could recover some authors, though sadly I don’t think its going to happen. 😦

    • I am totally a Sheryl fan, in fact I’m a Macross fan in general and I LOVED Macross Frontier.

      Ooh that reminds me I still have that VF-27 to put together to add to my collection of Valkyries.

      Once built I can post pictures. Hubby’s been busy collecting his Sheryl figures, so I’ll add those in the post too πŸ™‚

      • If you did that, I might just start bowing to you. orz

        And thank God you’re not a Ranka fan! *Whew* I thought I had lost another comrade to the green-haired loli. (Impz is gonna kill me.)

      • Nuuu and you were so awesome Choux… ;D But I don’t mind imouto-ish characters; it’s just that Ranka seems, well, annoying at times. Like a little sister. (My logic makes no sense. XD)

    • Thanks. I had fun during out last chat. Gah the webmaster in you can’t help but crack that whip!

      It should please you to know I have already started drafting some posts XD

      • You can’t blame me. I am the evil overlord of T.H.A.T after all. Whipping my writers into writing is part of the job criterion. πŸ˜›

  5. I’m so glad that you’re back! Not that you know me, but I always like to read your posts.

    I hope that your recovery will be quick and easy from now on.

  6. @ Impz, true… sometimes its hard to see you as evil because of the moe you got going on.

    Now I see why you take the form of green haired little girls, its to lull everyone into a false sense of security.

  7. @ maggeh, I shall be on aim more from now on. I went into hibernation mode a bit.

    I think the only site I was on regularly was FB, so poor Riex and Impz had to deal with most of my fits of blah.

  8. Waiii~ you’re back Sakura-oneesama!


    I mean… *glomps lightly* since you’re still recovering ;D

    Hope you get back to your best soon \o/

  9. Welcome back πŸ™‚
    A surgery? Was it something serious? another blogger friend of mine also went through surgery recently. I’m glad you’re okay

    • Thanks Canne.

      I hope your other blogger friend is okay!

      Thankfully nothing life threatening but definitely a big impact on my life.

      4 years ago I sadly suffered a miscarriage. During my treatment for that the doctor was too aggressive and scarred my uterine lining, meaning for the last 3 years I was unable to get pregnant again.

      In some cases of the condition, scarring can be bad enough to where the uterus can be completely closed and if they damage down to the myometrium it would be impossible to have a child.

      I was VERY lucky that I didn’t fall into either of those categories. But it still took two surgeries to fix the damage she did and after each surgery hormone therapy to regrow the lining.

      The test they do to check it was gone, is VERY painful. I ended up needing it three times.

      After all was said and done I was finally able to get pregnant again. But sadly I had another miscarriage.

      Due to the first doctor cocking things up, it meant that medical management put me at too high a risk of scarring again.

      Which meant I had to do it the natural way, all on my own. Which I managed for the most part, but needed a bit of help towards the end, after spending an entire day experiencing some pretty painful contractions.

      As it stands now, the doctors are doing some testing to try and figure out why this happened again. So far I am coming up negative for everything, although we still don’t have the genetic work up back yet. Though given that neither of our families have any history of genetic abnormalities, I’m pretty sure those tests will come back fine too.

      Which basically means all we can do is try again and hope for the best 😦 Going through this a third time is a prospect that terrifies me, but the thought of success is what helps to keep us trying πŸ™‚

      Needless to say since last October which is when they first discovered this. Life has been both physically and mentally exhausting, not to mention frustrating and heartbreaking.

      The doctors are frustrating us right now, because they screwed up and didn’t take hubby’s blood for testing the same time they took mine, so now we have to wait much longer than necessary to start trying again.

      Well that would have been the case had we not decided they can screw off and we are pretty much just going to do what the hell we want.

      Have to say I have felt so much more energetic and a lot happier since deciding that.

      I figure if we have an oops, then that is what we were hoping for anyway and if not, then well the doc can’t get mad πŸ™‚

      And that is the saga that has been my life for a while!

      • That is really serious matters. I believe you have been tested for antiphospholipid syndrome, just in case. If all tests come out negative, alternative medicine or mental training might be a safe option. Best wishes πŸ™‚

  10. @ Choux!,YAY more glomps! I’ve missed you too.

    I hear Impz has been cracking the whip in your direction.

    Want me to throw some Ranka plushies at him? πŸ˜‰

  11. @ Canne, yes they did a full panel of blood work for recurrent miscarriage. I came up negative for all the clotting and autoimmune disorders.

    So if nothing turns up on the genetics tests, then I guess we’ll just get told it was one of those things.

    I’m already considering trying out chasteberry, since I know one of my problems is PCOS and I’ve heard that its a natural way of balancing out your FSH and LH levels.

    A lot of friends have also told me acupuncture can help with cycle issues and even FSH levels, so I’m looking into it. Currently my insurance doesn’t cover things like acupuncture.

    But that might change come October, when we get to pick our insurance for the year, since I was going to pick something with better infertility coverage than what we have anyway.

    As for mental training. I think us deciding to just do what we want for now has been a big help in that area. Hubby and I both already feel much happier and less stressed out πŸ™‚
