The trials and tribulations of life, wonky brain chemistry and blog problems.

So... Hi everybody... It's been a while. I just wanted to write a little update for the blog as I'm getting things prepared around here to start updating on the regular again as I said in a relatively recent post.

But first, a little recap of the "interesting times" I've had going on.

My back was on the mend since the car accident earlier this year and was looking like it was almost better, until recent events which I'll cover momentarily.Through a good chunk of this year I wasn't able to manage my depression very well (probably hindered by the back pain) through sheer willpower and the power of hobby escapism. And so I bit the bullet and went to seek professional help.So I have been re-diagnosed as suffering from chronic depression (I knew, but was managing quite well on my own) and have been given medication to help stabilise my wacky brain chemistry.

It's been quite some time since I actually made use of the blog and the purpose of this post is twofold, first an open letter to my followers who haven't seen me around for a while and what the hell I've been up to. And second it's... Well... Well it's a greeting and a "What the hell am I getting myself into?" post for any new faces... I think... We'll see how it goes...
