2012 wasn't a very fun year for me.
I spent the better part of 5 months stuck in a hospital ward, and most of that time I was throwing up every single day.
A myriad of pills, patches and injections were used to desperately try to stop the vomiting, but eventually they gave up trying, and sent me home.
Luckily the daily vomiting's died down.

Three years on, and I'm somewhat settled into my new life. I can't really do anything too physical. My balance is messed up, and too much movement tends to bring back the sickness. (Putting up the Xmas Tree is a particularly queaziness-inducing event.) But for the most part, I've learned that staying sat on the couch all day, is a fairly decent way of ensuring I'm not in constant need of my sick-bowl.

I currently spend most of the day sat on the couch, coding games, drawing silly Platdude pictures, and all those other things that fill up my Twitter/Facebook feed.

I don't get out much, but am seemingly capable of getting into the village and back without being too sick, as long as I only attempt it on a "good" day. "Bad" days tend to leave me much queazier, and if I dare attempt a trip outside.. .. Hopefully the sickbowl isn't too far away!

I'm thankful that I'm still here, that the surgeon's were fantastic at what they did, and that my Blood Pressure was so remarkably high that they needed to perform a CT scan to figure out why!! (.. Because just a couple of weeks earlier, my GP had sent me for an xray, and told me there was nothing wrong..)

*phew*

Three years on.. I'm not perfectly fit and healthy, but I know it could've been much worse, and that I've been extremely lucky.

God Bless the NHS!

Am glad you are still here and doing as well as you are. The world would be a much sadder place without you in it.
