It’s been a little bit again, and I’m sorry to report that it’ll be a little (or a lottle) bit longer still. I’ll explain down below.
But before we get into the life deep-dive, I wanted to share with you some results from my Nezuko cosplay. I had some fun putting this together, although I was very nervous since this was my first cosplay ever! Here are the shots:
Full photo set is available exclusively for my Patreon supporters, tiers Senpai, Sensei and Sama right now! Chan tier will gain access next month (December 2021). My “Nezuko After Dark” shots will also be available. Keep in mind they are still safe for work, and there’s only three pictures.
Please consider supporting me on Patreon. Doing so will help me create more and better content, including more cosplays. Currently, the blog is just a hobby, and with two jobs, it is hard to keep up. If, however, I have more supporters, I can justify spending more time, money and energy into content creation.
You can also buy me a tea at BuyMeACoffee:
Now for another health update: I was recently diagnosed with POTS, or Postural Orthostadic Tachycardia Syndrome. This explains a lot of the fainting I was and am experiencing. We’ve increased my blood pressure medication and I now don some funky compression socks daily to help me function. I’ve also got H. Pylori, so I’m currently on a ten-day antibiotic regimen to get rid of that nastiness. Fun stuff.
TLDR: As I mentioned, October 31st was my last stream for a long while. I’ll be taking a break from content creating to focus on health and self-care. This also includes content creation on this blog, unless I’m somehow able to find time to write, which quite frankly, I don’t think will be possible. Let me explain:
I was recently diagnosed with anorexia– something I have been denying or hiding for all of my adult life. This is a very scary time for me, one of acceptance, healing and growth. I’ve been admitted into a partial hospitalization program, which begins this Thursday, and occurs every weekday for 6 hours. I’ll also continue to be working full time. That being said I’ll be going from 5:00 until 21:00 Mondays – Thursdays, and 8:00 – 14:00 on Fridays. This doesn’t include my work for Crunchyroll, which I’m hoping to catch up on during the weekends.
I’m also hoping to still be able to join @FairJame for his streams on Saturdays for our multiplayer games, and perhaps in chat during potential Sunday morning music streams. I’ll also continue to be active on discord, so feel free to send me updates and pop in to chat! I’ll probably be feeling lonely during this time, so any messages (or pet photos) are greatly appreciated!
I hope you all will be with me on this journey. As you can imagine, I’m full of fear and uncertainty, but also a fair amount of pride for finally doing something about my situation. Your support continues to give me strength and inspires me to be better, cherish myself more, and continue on this wild ride.
Thank you for being here, and thank you for reading this all the way until the end. I love you all. Please take care of yourselves during this break, and I hope to see you again once my treatment program concludes.
Take care, Annieme-niacs,
