It's the beginning of August already! Where the hell does the time go?

I'm certainly feeling better than this time a month ago. My breathing is much better and I'm not getting pains any more when I try and fill my lungs. The drugs seem to be doing their job because all my blood tests are, to use the doc's words - "perfect". I do think, however, that the coumadin is screwing with my digestion a little. I never really had trouble before, but since coming out of the hospital, on those hot and humid days mostly, I have problems. It's a bit of a pain, because I start feeling a lot better, getting energy back, beginning to be able to do things again (including tagging) and then the stomach thing hits me and I'm out of things for 2 - 3 days and I have to start all over again. I have to say bless you all, to my writing partners for their patience with me as I tag in fits and starts. *hugs them all*

I'm still trying to deal with Julie's passing. It's difficult. I miss her so much. I don't know that I've ever had such an instant connection with someone the way I did with her. You know how Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables) spoke about "kindred spirits"? Julie was my kindred spirit. She was my best friend and the sister I never had - trite as it sounds, it's very true. This is a difficult subject for me to talk about - someone I trust very much suggested that with my being sick and all that I haven't been able to grieve properly, and I think she's right.

On the upside, I've not had a cigarette since June 7th in the evening. And it's not been so bad, I have to say. Yeah, I get cravings and urges every now and then, but they pass really fast. I actually have 3 whole packs of smokes in the bookcase right behind me. Folks say that I should get rid of them, but you know what? It kind of gives me more power to know they're there and I've not touched them.

And the little kitty has a name. Rika. She is named after a character from Phantasy Star 4 - Michael's favorite video game of all time. She's settling in fairly well. She and Squirt have achieved detente and I expect that before another week is gone, they'll be bffs.

I guess the final piece of news it that I caved and signed up to AO3 after the latest clusterfuck at Live Journal. OTW still rots my socks but AO3 seems to be a fairly stable place to store my fics, so... upload them I will. I have no clue if I'm doing it right. *LOL* They all seem to use a TON more tags than I do, sometimes you can read the story just by reading the tags and the warnings! *LOL*

And that's about it for how things are with me. :)

I had half a pack in a little used drawer for ages after I quit. Finally one day I opened the drawer to get something, and the smell of stale cigarettes had permeated everything, so I tossed them. Except for the two Rockfic get-togethers, I haven't smoked cigarettes since 1999.

Glad to hear you're doing better!

Imagine that--The Collective over-metaing things. :D
