Personal: Oh crap….

Right, any posts I make within the next couple of hours may not make any sense as I’m currently slightly drunk (say practically a whole bottle of Port without much food). Why have I got drunk on a “school night”? Well, it wasn’t intentional – I just had a bit of “middling news” over the weekend which has only just really hit home.

Basically – and without saying too much – certain medical conditions can be hereditary and others are “not yet known if they could be hereditary or not”. I’ve been aware that I’ve been running a “slightly higher than average” case of suffering from a certain condition due to heritage for a couple of years now, but I was informed on Saturday that something that I thought was “one-sided” of my family tree wasn’t to be. A quick test conducted on Saturday afternoon indicated that, yes, I do appear to be already suffering from that condition – even though I’m only 24. (and, yes, I’m being intentionally vague as it’s slightly private but I just want to get it off my chest: the whole reason for this blog).

And if that isn’t enough to contend with, I stand a “higher than average risk” of suffering from a number of other conditions – and to compound it all, there was quite a bit of news coverage on Sunday evening/night about two other males suffering from the “primary condition”. B-gger.

I hope this is just ramblings of a drunkard (my subconscious does actually control my “ability to get drunk” – if I’m happy and with friends, then I cannot get drunk no matter how hard I try: my body just won’t let me drink any more :- whereas if something is playing on my mind, I just gradually get drunk until the matter arises in my main consciousness) and that I’m just suffering from a bout of acute hypochondria – but… *gulp*.

Blarg! Sometimes I hate being me!

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
