I Surrender…

It’s white-flag time, guys. I surrender. I’ve just crashed, hit the wall with this bloody un-specific, un-diagnosed illness and have to cut out all non-essentials until I’m feeling better. That – as you will probably have noticed – includes blog posts. I’ve got about twelve partially finished posts on the go – I couldn’t stay awake long enough to finish any of ’em.

I’ve got five chapters on my book written, awaiting a final draft before it can beΒ sent off to agents, and a half-arsed pantomime plot that needs some serious input, and I can’t do any of it – there’s just no time after sleeping 16 hours a day! I’m going for the record full 24 hours, but not quite there, yet… I’ve got the endocrinologist appointment on Monday – if I don’t sleep through it – so hopefully, that’ll get the ball rolling towards some kind of answer.

I hope you’ll all still be around in a couple of weeks – Jeeze! – I hope I’m still around in a couple of weeks! But I’ll quite understand if you all piss off and find something more interesting to do πŸ™‚

Love, light and happiness, my bloggy-buddies! X

  1. Oh no… Poor you!! Feel better

  2. We’ll all still be here! πŸ˜€ Good luck getting diagnosed! xxxx

  3. Oh I hope you start to feel better soon… I spent the best part of two years in bed with ME so I really do feel for you.

  4. Ooops – I was logged in on Owen’s tester-blog there….. sorry…. anyway that was me πŸ™‚

  5. Hope you feel better soon Tiny!

    Non-essentials… so that leaves eating and sleeping, and misses out on housework, cooking, poop-a-scooping and anything child related.

    So not all bad after all x Seriously, hope you’re feeling upto normal life soon.

    • Lol! You’re dead right – eating, clean clothes and sleeping, that’s about my lot! Felt so awful last week, I spent 48 hours in the same clothes – yeuk!!
      Thanks, Max. When I’m better, we should celebrate with a night out πŸ™‚

  6. I hope you are feeling better soon. I was waiting on your take of the Royal Wedding – I knew it would be gut busting – now I know why it never came. I know I’ll still be here….

  7. Dear Tiny,
    I’ve been wondering where you’ve been πŸ™‚ xxx

  8. Grey Goose, Dirty

    oh my sweet friend. you take care of yourself. i’m so sorry that none of the doctor’s are able to pull their heads out of their asses long enough to help you. 😦

    you will be missed, i assure you; but we will be waiting for when you’re feeling better and are back.


    • Thank-you, sweetie. I’ve been eight months getting to this appointment, can you believe it?
      In the famous words of Arnie, ‘I’ll be back!’ Make sure you have some great dating stories waiting for me πŸ˜‰ XX

  9. Ohhh I hope you feel better!! I wish with all my heart that your Dr.s would figure out what the hell is going on!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will say my prayers with you in them and be waiting by the computer with baited breath for your next post, or maybe I should brush, then you will be back sooner. πŸ˜‰ xoxoxox

    • Oh, thank-you, Michelle. I’m really missing my bloggy friends, just too exhausted to tackle the 300-odd e-mails notifying me of new posts.
      And I’d love you with stinky-dog breath πŸ™‚

  10. I’ll always be here for you Sara! I only want you to get better! I know I owe you an email!

    Maybe you need a couple Red Bulls! JK!

    Blog when you can. We’ll all be here for you, waiting for your next hilarious rant!

    • Thanks, hon. E-mail when you’re ready; I certainly know what it feels like to have too much other stuff awaiting your attention. I can’t keep on top of stuff at the moment, so I’d never moan at someone else for lagging behind a bit. Not that I’m saying your behind is lagging, of course… πŸ˜‰

  11. Oh, no! I am so sorry. I think I may be on my own journey into the “I don’t know what’s wrong with you” medical thing, so I can only hope that they quit fucking around and really try to help you out. Please just keep us updated on how you’re doing. And, if you get that 24-hour sleep in, let me know. Maybe you can get nominated for “The Sleepiest Blogger” award!

  12. One wave of my magic wand should sort you out. If not I recommend a months holiday somewhere warm (maybe even exotic, like Torquay!)

    Sending magic hugs and kisses FG xx

  13. AWWW!! I had wondered where on earth you went. I am so sorry you have not been feeling well. I hope you get better soon.

  14. Hey, what do you know? I’m going to see an endocrinologist too! For my bad sleeping habits! Hope you start feeling better.

    • Lol! Bad sleeping habits? You wanna know how to sleep? I can tell you that!!
      Nah, seriously, may God bless all endos and let’s hope the two we’re seeing are competent, amen. πŸ™‚ Hope you get sorted soon!

  15. As long as your alive that all that matter to me friend!!

  16. Well that bites. Of course we will all be here waiting for you to come back. Good luck on getting your book finished and ready to send off. WE can all say that “we knew you when.”

  17. I’m wanting more info on the book! Hope the endo appt went well. *I’ll* still be around in a couple of weeks (well – unless I’m devoured by the coyotes outside my door – but I’m too ornery for that). Take care – let me know how things are going πŸ˜‰

    • Ornery – what a wonderful word! App was Hell on earth – hoping to post about it in a bit. And the book’s a kind of spoof guide to internet dating. What can I say, it’s an extreme sport… πŸ˜‰
