I hope that everything is successful and that you have the best of luck.

Well that was a complete waste of time. I literally breathed poison for two hours, just so that a random intern who looked younger than me could tell me "unfortunately, the result of this test has not highlighted a clear pathological profile". Because apparently the fact that half my limbs aren't working properly, my breathe-in-breathe-out cycle is messed up and the pain in my chest is getting sharper by the minute does not constitute a "clear pathological profile".

So yeah, back to square one I guess. On the plus side, I'm two specialists away from completing the collection, let's see if I can find a way to justify talking to a proctologist.

I'm so sorry you had to go through that, only to be told inconclusive... Still, no matter what, dont lose hope. Is there anything else, any next step they're suggesting? Stay strong, Catherine. We're all there with you. Pray to God that He send you a proper doctor; I will be.

No idea. On thursday I'll speak to the doctor who came up with the idea of this test in the first place: since t was his idea, I should hope he had a course of action planned should it prove unsuccessful...

@Catherine Cook, on a positive note the small chance of you dying did not happen. There is only one thing we say to the god of death.

Not today.

So guys, the aforementioned doctor who came up with the idea of the big scary test that ultimately amounted to nothing actually came to me today (was originally scheduled to see him tomorrow). He said they're gonna concoct a soft cure tailored specifically on my symptoms, and I am to follow this cure for one month, starting tomorrow: observing which aspects of my conditions improve (if at all) following this cure should hopefully give him and his colleagues a clearer perspective on what's wrong with me.

So yeah, now we wait, which is essentially what I had been doing up to this point anyway, only now there's a concrete, if nebulous, chance that I might actually get better... So yeah, I have decided that, at some point between tomorrow and sunday, I will resume my activity here on MW. Worst case scenario, I'll just disappear from the forum one day, and if do, you'll easily figure out why; best case scenario, I'll actually improve and start reclaiming a semblance of normality for my life. Either way, if I'm gonna live in wait, I see no reason not to play some D&D in the meantime.

I must warn you, however: given that I might alternate days of very high activity (during which I'd prioritize the games I'm DMing anyway) with days when I'd barely post at all, I'm going to have to abandon all the games in which I'm a player, and for a while I'll avoid being a player outside of the occasional solo game, if I can set one up with somebody. In addition, I'm going to cut at least one of the games I'm currently DMing (the one with the least/slowest activity): reason being, I have two cool ideas for games that I had been cooking up for a while, but now I've finally figured out how to put into actually set up from a mechanical standpoint... And well, to be brutally honest, since the worst case scenario is still on the table and the upcoming month is likely going to be the bleakest in my life up to this point, I'd rather die setting up a new cool idea, than waiting for a post in a game that has long been stalled out. I'm sure you understand.

Tl;dr: you can look forward to me making a wave of posts to straighten out my situation, get my games back on track and create one or two more in the upcoming days, maybe as soon as tomorrow depending on how the day will go.

Looking forward to your ideas! Its a good attitude you have towards this whole thing, and what your doctor suggests sounds like it makes sense. Though I do wish they tried this instead of the 'breathe poison for 2 hours' thing first... Then again, since it had no results, I suppose that wouldnt make a difference to them, and this really could help out! Try not to think about the what ifs and try to stay as positive as you possibly can force yourself to be.

As for Solo games, if you'd like a solo game, I'm certain you can get one. I can run an AP for you, if you're interested. let me know.
