Well: in Dec. 2017 i had a gastric bypass because no amount of exercise and diet made me loose enough weight. Because of this volume per meal needs to go down but nr of meals a day goes from 3 to 6. One day in april i got distracted in my workshop (i make rc Submarines and am preparing my first cosplay ) and that made my sugarlevel go too low. by the time i noticed it was too late. I did manage to get to the pantry, but before i could open something to eat i lost consciousness. I was found 3h later shaking and foaming. When i woke up, i was on the couch in the livingroom with an ambulance medic before me. So all this thought me that when i felt my sugar go low, i don't have 1 to 2 hours to get it back up again. Later, in June we went shopping to a mall and were checking out at the register when i felt sugerlevels go to low again. So excused myself and took off to get me something with sugar in it. A couple minutes later i was found in a pool of blood at the bottom of the escalator. I think i probably lost consciousness on the escalator and took a dive. When i woke up i was in a room that looked like a hospital room, but rather big and comfy. To me it felt like i had been out for a couple of hours, my spouse came in a bit later and told me 5 weeks had passed. I had had 6 hemorrhages, they had to cut open my skull to reach and repair. then had to put me in artificial coma for 10 days. The surgeons gave me 15% survival chance and advised my spouse to start making preparations for me passing. I remember none of any of it of the entire 5 weeks, even though i have been awake at times and people visiting me in the hospital and have conversations with me. The only thing i do remember are very very vivid dreams and they all seemed to have the purpose of drawing me 'to the light'. But every-time i figured out it was a dream (i taught myself lucid dreaming when i was young so i could watch horrormovies without nightmares afterward) the dream abruptly stopped. Until i finally became fed up with those deceptive dreams, and that caused an energy surge that woke me up. after the gastric bypass until june i lost 25kg. Being mostly unconscious in the hospital for a couple weeks i lost another 15kg. Before the surgery i thought 30kg loss would be a grand success. Now it's 40kg, i'm beneath what BMI dictates and no matter what i eat weight doesn't build up. On top of that i needed lighter glasses because my vision got better, and the depression i was still struggling with since one-hell-of-a-burnout in 2010, that is gone... So yeah. It was a dangerous thing that happened, but all in all i'm better of now then i was in the 8 years before it happened. But that is the positive side, being knocked out for so long by 6 brainbleeds also sabotages my short term memory. And had my right side parallised for a while. I'm still seeing a physiotherapist for my right shoulder. Its the short-term memory issue that is keeping me from doing mentally complicated things for an extended time. When my brain gets too tired it forces me to sleep immediately, regardless where i am. But yeah, i do think there's more positive stuff happening then negative. Thanks for asking though. Putting it to words is a big help in dealing with it all. Hopefully i'll recuperate enough to pick up this mod again, and if i get help from someone who's more well-versed in the graphics stuff, i'd certainly get all excited.
Thanks Kurgan, you make me very happy having inspired your mod!
