I'm posting this as a separate entry since it's kinda long to put in an icon post, although I'm probably going to link it in the next one ;)

Anyway, as you may have noticed, I took another, longer and unplanned break. This time several things came together. It started with my laptop slowly dying. I noticed a weird clicking sound, brought it to the shop where I bought it (nearly seven years ago), they told me that the hard drive was starting to fail and one day it would just stop working. So I stopped using programs that put too much strain (i.e. Photoshop) on it and concentrated on saving data. Following that I went on a little vacation (with the old laptop^^) and then spend some time setting my new(/refurbished) laptop up. The good news is that this one is so much faster!

After that was done, my back pain (which I mentioned here before) came back full force. That meant a lot of lying down and I can't really make icons in that position. I also used that time to watch some shows, so even though I had icons I could post, I never did *blushes*

Since back pain alone isn't enough, I also noticed being very tired and a lack of motivation for the past couple of months. That was (or at least in part) untreated hypothyroidism or underactive thyroid. I must have developed it during the last 12 months since I get frequent checkups. I started taking medication a little over a week ago and I'm definitely less tired now.

Hopefully that all means I can go back to updating this community a little more frequently and making some icons again.

I'm glad you're getting better! :) (And damn! I also miss your icons :D)
I had some problems with underactive thyroid years back, and I could sleep all day, honestly I was so tired all the time. I flunk at school, because I couldn't concentrate.

Fortunately it's all behind me now and I don't have any problems with my thyroid. Ugh...I'm trying so hard to finish my masters thesis. I'm close but I still have a few chapters to write.

I had hypothyroidism which was undiagnosed for two years (well, my mom knew I probably had it since both she and her mom got it in their early 20's as well, but it was two years before the doctors would test blah blah) and I know how awful it is and exhausted you feel without meds. It was terrible. The meds help so much and I hope you are 100% soon!

That's good! The meds are wonderful and you should feel back to normal soon even if it takes a few weeks to fully kick in ♥

I hope you feel better! ♥ Back pain runs in my family and one of my friends has it real bad, so I sympathize with you on that!

Hi hon, I was wondering where and how you were :) I'm so sorry about all these issues! Thyroid can be a bitch, not to mention the back pain >.< I'm glad you're feeling better now and that you're back, I was just thinking I need some more icons ^^

Das freut mich!

Meine Mum hatte dieses Jahr auch schwer mit Rückenproblemen zu kämpfen! Da beneide ich keinen drum!

Aber schön, dass es dir besser geht! :)
