A Perosnal Medical Update

After suffering from fever, coughing and shortness of breath for the whole weekend, today I have been diagnosed with chronic sinusitis and given antibiotics. Right now I'm on sick leave at home. I do have some final amendments to add to my thesis but other than that, this means resting until I get better.

However, I do have a more worrying medical problem - digestion issues, with 3-5 stools a day, bad appetite and nausea. The doctor did not come to a diagnosis regarding this but did ask me if I had a history of intestine cancer in my family; she then sent me to a gastroenterologist (the appointment I have is in July due to the shortage in manpower in the Israeli medical system. I did get worried from her 'cancer' questions, though I do understand that they are part of the regular diagnostic process.

Hopefully I'll get better soon.

I Have a New Job!

I am happy to announce that I have been hired to work full time for a small local company, called Designate Technology Initiatives, which specializes in "library" (read: Google Scholar) research and academic-level writing for a plethora of customers, from students, through other businesses, to official bodies. This means I spend 8 hours a day, 4-5 days a week, writing 8-12 pages of high-quality text, usually in the humanities or social sciences. While this is hard work, it is interesting and satisfying.

For this reason, I might be a bit less available for gaming stuff for the following few weeks until I adjust to the new job. Of course, I will still work on Outer Veil stuff and USE ME booklets. Once I'll fully adjust myself, I'll be back to gaming. Oh, and with more money for miniatures!
