Personal Update

Just a quick post to say that I’m feeling a little under the weather lately and I’ve had migraine after migraine this week which has really worn me out and made me feel very groggy every day. So no Star Wars post today but I should be feeling right as rain tomorrow (all things considered).

We are heading into Summer and for me (being a migraine sufferer where rising temperatures can trigger them for me) that’s the worst time of the year. I get twice as many migraine attacks at this time of year in New Zealand than any other time so yeah, just me having a bit of a bleet ๐Ÿ™

I hope everything is good with everyone else, let me know how you’re getting on if you can in the comments!

And I’ll catch you there or in tomorrow’s post ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I’m so sorry you’re not feeling well, Julie. I’ve only had a few migraines, but they’re terrible.
    We’re heading into winter here, so trying to ward against cold and flu season (along with Covid).
    Feel well soon!

    1. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ I actually went to work today but when I say went to work I mean I walked half a meter to my desk at home and worked lol I had to take a day off last week for the same thing – I hate this time of year ๐Ÿ™ But thank you for your well wishes, it is much appreciated. I hope your day is going well ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Hi Julie, I for one wouldn’t hold it against you if you missed a post or two….and I speak from experience. I used to be a member of a lightsaber owners group (not the Facebook one) and spent many spare hours on that site commenting and typing up “Welcome” messages to new members when they joined. I did this so much people thought I was part of the Admin team….the problem was however it cost me a bit of my health. I got stressed out when I couldn’t do more to help people when they needed it, but then I was trolled by a guy on the site and that pushed me to the tipping point where I had to stop using the forum. So I know that health comes first and is important. Plus I now know that friends and followers will support you if you have “bad days”. Hope you’re feeling better very soon.

    p.s. But there was a silver lining to the trolling situation – whilst I was inactive on the forum in question, I used the time to set up my blog. My blog is still going strong but the forum shut down.

    1. Ah thank you so much FT ๐Ÿ™‚ That means a lot ๐Ÿ™‚ And I am glad you stopped using that forum. Nothing is worth your health – not even your job which I have come to realise in the last couple years.. I mean I’ve had migraines for most of my life so I am used to their frequency and the pain but it is a massive inconvenience to everyone in my life. And yeah, I get that people will support me even if I don’t post daily. That is the best part of being part of this community – people genuinely care and that’s rare to find online these days. Most people are just annoying trolls but it’s worth spending the time getting to know the good ones that do come along every now and then like you and Neil and a few other people I’ve met here. Thanks again for that insight and for your well wishes ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Hey there TVTA ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you are well and thank you for the kind words and well-wishes ๐Ÿ™‚ I am actually feeling so much better today and everyone’s kind words helps all the more ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks again and stay safe, friend ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Take Care and feel better. I took a month long hiatus just from I completely understand all this with allergies & migraines galore. Take a few days even as sometimes we need our ‘me’ time and it’s okay to be a little selfish.. ๐Ÿ™‚
