Entry #195

Update on Medical Condition

2017-03-28 03:04:32 by RealFaction

UPDATE: I just released a new song I started on months ago, but didn't come back to until now.  Check it out: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/736394  I'm going to write and record lyrics to it hopefully this week.  It'll be a gentle song to sing for my lungs.  It's dedicated to a friend who painted me a mini-canvas that says "Breathe", so that's the name of the song, something I need to learn how to do, to improve my condition, to relax.

I was going to go to the hospital earlier, but I went to the doctor in the afternoon after my specialist talked with him.  For now, we're trying a very strong acid reflux medicine after 4 medicines did not help me.  Yes, you heard me, 4.  Apparently I have bad acid reflux, not sure of the cause.  I'm getting my gallbladder checked next week at the hospital via ultrasound.

For now, that's all I have to update you all with.  I have been losing sleep, I can't go to work unless this medicine works, and even with insurance, it's over $100....shit.  It's killing my parents, this is getting out of control.  So for now, I've been at home.  Hopefully, tonight I'll get some good sleep, then I can see how the meds do tomorrow, hoping nothing goes wrong this time. 

In the meantime, I'm still judging/reviewing the Art-Inspired Music Contest submissions, and we've gotten some amazing entries so far.  You should go check them out here: http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1421358

I've also been talking to friends to keep me calm, and my girlfriend, who I've decided to go public about.  Her name is Alyx, she is awesome.  Been together almost 3 weeks now. 

So...Anime.  Let's Talk About It.

I've also been a shut-in watching anime, so I reccomend watching that dragon maid anime, look it up, I forget the long ass name it is.  It's kinda adorable to watch, and though it's kinda simplistic and more slice-of-life than supernatural though it mixes the two, it's not bad. 

Also, Highschool of the Dead.

Yeah yeah I know what you're thinking "ooh titties!  It's an ecchi anime so it's gotta suck!".  Listen, I was shocked at how good this series actually is, and like Ghost Stories, actually rewrote some lines for the american adaptation, throwing in some funny jokes about Sarah Palin (just one, don't worry), and other stuff.  It even references Shaun of the Dead as an easter egg.  I won't spoil that, but it's pretty fricken cool, and funny, when you see the reference.

If you're a fan of zombie movies, anime, love good writing, and great voice acting, watch the english dub of Highschool of the Dead.  It's loaded with fan service, but whether you like that or not, the writing, action, acting, animation, all of it as a whole, I'm in love with this series, it's really good.  The character development is the best part, which is something I appreciate a lot when I watch something or when I write.

I was shocked at the depth of the characters, how realistic this gets compared to most anime, and how great the acting is, it gets really sad and emotional, but it's deep stuff man.  It's been a while since I've enjoyed an anime series this much as far as checking something new out (in the sense I haven't seen it yet).  It's a realistic approach (minus the boob physics and laws of gravity in general) to how a zombie apocolypse would be handled between friends, but it's more than just that.  Go watch it.

So yeah, Anime Corner is done now, I'm going to go to bed, and see how things go tomorrow.  RF, out.

Oh my, take a good rest and let's hope for the best! (hey, it rhymes!)

Also, I've started to re-appreciate Anime recently and yes, Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid is good. I can also recommend shows like Demi-Chan wa Kataritai and Kiznaiver, those are even better IMO. And no, I won't look at Highschool Of The Dead, at least for now. The amount of fanservice seems way too massive for me.

Glad you are able to get the doctor take care of you. If you need that 100 bucks we are here for you.

About highschool of dead, funny how the chubby guy gets to make all the weapon for the hot girls.

(Updated ) RealFaction responds:

Thanks. I appreciate it. Hahaha yeah he's awsome. Saeko and the pink-haired girl are personally my two favorites because i like their attitudes, but he's up there too.

I'm sorry to hear you went through all that. I'm not a doctor, but I know a few things about managing acid reflux. It might be a good idea to avoid excessive tomato products, give yourself at least 2 or 3 hours to digest your dinner before going to bed, and avoid eating highly acidic foods.

(Updated ) RealFaction responds:

I already do all that. There's only a few foods I can really eat for now. They're thinking its anxiety disorder but I'm on better meds now.
