2007 has not been a nice year for me. It took me months to recover after I got my heart broken. I really didn’t think I’d be so fucked up and depressed for so long. But I was. Then I had bouts of nasty chest infections throughout the year. In the same year I’ve had a lot of serious issues with my day job. And then there’s the cause of the numbness and pins and needles. I was on a blog and email holiday the past few days but being fully transparent the reason for it was that I was admitted into hospital on Wednesday. After x-rays, CT scans, MRIs and a lumbar puncture (yes they fucking hurt) they’ve discovered I have two inflamations inside my brain causing my left side to go numb and go all pins and needles-like. It will be another two weeks before they can confirm what it is that I might have but for now I’m to take solace that I don’t have an aneurysm, a tumour, HIV (they tested me due to my “lifestyle”, how nice), meningitis or the usual viruses that infect the brain.
Still, some highs in 2007 were being asked to write for the Tribune, running the blog awards, managing to get into 3rd year law by the skin of my teeth after an appeal, having a deus ex machina come in and wake me the fuck up around the end of July 🙂 and losing 30lbs in the past few months when I started to watch my diet and take care of myself. Paddy’s Valley was a cherry on top of the good aspects of the year. Overall though 2007 has been one of the suckiest years ever. Glad to see it gone. Fuck you 2007, roll on 2008.
