So that image has nothing to do with anything other than I was recently thinking about Gitaroo Man so there he and his pup are.
(Also, it would be super nice if a remaster was done of Gitaroo Man. I know we just got PaRappa, so there’s hope.)
My frustration currently has to do with not only still being sick, but seemingly getting worse over the past several days. I didn’t think I’d necessarily get well straightaway, but I did think I’d at least start seeing improvement before I saw…this.
I was all set to force myself to play games this week. I mean, I finally have Persona 5 in my possession! I want to play it so badly. But it’s hard to play anything when you are crumpled into a heap on the couch, trying not to heave everywhere and generally trying not to move more than necessary.
Allow me to say, I’ve never been so sick before that I’ve not been able to play games. It’s borderline absurd. As it is, the only times I’m even at my computer are to keep writing on my regular schedule, and as soon as I’m done, I go back to my couch heap and try to remind myself to keep drinking Gatorade (my electrolytes have been terribly low for weeks) and periodically forcing myself to eat.
Yes, I have to force myself to eat. The other day I realized all I’d eaten was a small bowl of cottage cheese. I realized that around 10pm that night. But it’s hard to eat when you constantly feel like you will see it again.
So, as you can see, my frustration with my pathetic health is at an all time high.
I want to finish Everything so badly. I adore it. Have I touched it in the last week? No.
I want to start Persona 5 like crazy. Do I think I will get to do that today? I have no idea. I want to say I will try, but the way I feel right now, I doubt it. I think I was actually able to sleep for all of three hours because I hurt so bad.
This crap is bonkers.
I don’t want to be so frustrated. I want to be productive! It’s just hard to be productive when all you are capable of doing is either sleeping or becoming a couch barnacle.
So, even though this has only barely been about games, I should probably excuse myself. Sitting up is hard.
It just seems ironic: in a year that has already seen so many amazing releases, my system decided to shut down for three months and render me as close to useless as possible. All I can do is shake my head. And keep going to my doctor. We are both baffled.
Friends, please take care of yourselves. It’s all fun and games until your health takes a dump on you.
I’m sorry to be such a downer today. I hope to have something far better for you on Friday.
P.S. Here is an adorable fan art image I found while looking for Gitaroo Man. It’s Gitaroo Kirby. :)
