So much has happened since I last blogged. So. Much.
There were shingles that derailed my Christmas plans. (I still haven’t seen my family and have unwrapped gifts in my house!) Then there was a sinus infection. The usual chemo side effects. And then most recently a trip to the Emergency Vet with Boomer and a biopsy of my own lymph nodes to see if I had more cancer. I went on prednisone to try and keep up with it all, and that has side effects too.
Anyway, it would seem I do not have more cancer, just the one. At least that’s my understanding of the medical report in my patient chart. I don’t actually meet with my oncologist until next week.
I would normally send you all to my Twitter account to catch up, and you can still do that, but I’m preparing to migrate from that site to another with a little less Elon Musk. If you know, you know.
I’m on Discord, Mastadon, and Counter.Social right now (just search for Emily Suess) until I know where I want to land. And maybe I’ll just go back to my first love, blogging, in the end. I’m really embracing the change as I am having a hard time making Twitter be the fun, relaxing experience it once was. Like Facebook, I just don’t need extra drama stuck in my face all day long.
All I know for certain is that I’ll eventually settle, and when I do that, you’ll be the first to know.
Work has started at my mom’s. It’s slow going, but I’m so ready to be close to my family and hang out with them. In-person game night and real hugs without a two-and-a-half-hour trip. The thought!
This is hastily written, I know. I’ll be back.
There’s a lot going on at my house, too – most of it Not Good – and Twitter’s frenzy isn’t helping matters.
I, too, set up camp on Counter (mumsintheattic2) but I don’t know that I have it in me to start a whole new social media thing. Blogging, books and actual live humans are starting to sound appealing. We’ll see.
I feel you 100%, when the dust settles we’ll know where we are meant to be. ❤
Yeah, I’m with you on Twitter. I’m more bummed about it, though. I went through a similar thing with Google+ where I had a really tight knit and important to me community. It’s annoying, but it’s making me feel certain that my Bring Blogging Back in 2022 campaign (I haven’t actually tried to bring blogging back since last December when I first had the thought) is the way to go. You were one of the first people I connected with on Twitter, but also, we used to read each other’s blog posts, and a bunch of other people’s too. We need to get the old blog rolls going again 🙂
I’m glad you’ve still got “only the one” cancer.
Yes, I already feel like escaping the Twitter turmoil has freed up sections of my brain for more fun, creative stuff–including blogging. I’m feeling good about it a little change in my daily routines.
Sooooooo happy to see a new post in my email! 😀 We are continuing to send love and healing energy in your direction, every day. <3
