Hey, Hooligans!

I know I haven't been very active here in the past couple months. I've been having some issues with my diabetes that the doctor still hasn't figured out. I'm fairly certain that it's hypothyroid, which is 1-in-10 for people with diabetes, and my mom says our family has a history of it... unfortunately, I've had a couple thyroid panels come back normal, although I've read that those labs aren't very reliable. If you get one that's not-normal, then you know for certain you have it, but on the other side, you can apparently have several normal thyroid labs despite having a thyroid problem. I'm sure this will all get figured out in the long-run, although in the moment right now it's pretty frustrating. I just published a new comic about the problems of trickle-down economics, and it's only about the 2nd I've been able to finish in the past two months. Today I got nine hours of sleep last night, was up long enough to get breakfast this morning and then after only about an hour or so being up was suddenly exhausted and had to take another nap for another hour. Woke up again feeling weird and a little shaky like a low-blood-sugar event, despite being 110, which is right in the normal zone for BS. (Bullshit has a totally different set of zones.) That's how it's been in the past few months and why I've been having such difficulty getting work done, along with a lot of doctor visits and other errands (I'm still the only driver in our house).

How have you guys been?

DeviantArt is still my favorite social media site. I do have over 5k followers on twitter and a few thousand Facebook friends, but at least so far, I've never been as close with those groups as I am with my DA Family. :hug:

A few of my friends have commissions open. Check them out:

Thyroid is one of those hard to diagnose issues and hard to treat. Hopefully it all fixes itself soon.
In the meantime, have you considered logging these issues day to day? That might give you some good ammo for the doctor.

Thanks, Elayne! :hug:

Yeah, we just started doing that yesterday or so. I also picked up some keytone strips to check that in addition to the blood-pressure cuff we just bought for home.

Darn it, I'm sorry to hear that you got it rough over there. I hope you can get it sorted out. While mine isn't the exact thing, but I suffer unexplained exhaustion now and then too and still have no idea what's causing it. I actually got it under control for most part lately so that's okay, but still it's definitely not normal you know? 

Anyway, keep on trying and don't give up okay? I'm sure you'll figure something out! :hug:

:nod: Yeah, I know there's a condition called "chronic fatigue syndrome", which I think basically means "we don't know what causes this". Personally I think that might even be worse -- at least with the diabetes, I have some idea that there's some science to understand it. Not knowing for me is always the hardest part of anything. Glad to hear you've gotten it under some control -- however you've managed to do that. That sounds really hard. :faint:

Thanks for your support and for saying hi! :hug:

If you get a minute, I'd love to hear your thoughts on my comedy: www.patreon.com/woohooligan

Aye, I don't think I have chronic fatigue syndrome, it seems far more severe and I don't have pain or stuff like that, thankfully. I suspect it's related to my thyroid, but I never got it confirmed and kinda self-treated myself that way. It seems to work well so that's why I never got it confirmed in the first place. :lol: I'll of course go to doctor if it goes down again though.

Anytime! :hug: 

I have checked your comedy out earlier actually and thought it was awesome that you turned cancer into something with humor. :D Laughter is the best medicine for sure! I wish you the best with your patreon! I always wanted to start one as well, but couldn't think of anything to make it exciting so I gave up on it. Haha.
