What do you mean by 'only'? It only seems as if it's been out a few months
to me, but having said that I did only get it for Xmas along with GTA: SA,
which I virtually completed before actually playing TS2 properly. But it
realy doesn't seem as if TS2s been out that long.

To mee it feels like 2 years since S2 came out, and like a year since
Uni LOL... probably because I've played them virtually every day since
I got them, often the whole day...

How come you have so much spare time? I don't mean to be nosey, but I
was under the impression you were pretty young.

No problem :-) I suffer from a couple of potentially life-threatning
conditions, so basically I can't work or study anymore, until I get it
under control. I'm going for a checkup on wednesday, and my doctor
will decide to go for a string of operations or continue to treat it
with medication and a breathing-machine I use at night, so I don't
choke or get a heart attack.. problem is it isn't working. Potentially
I might not be here to log onto the group tomorrow... and my doctor
said it's a miracle I'm still around, given the severity of my
condition. But I'm young (24), and very strong. I have a strong heart,
although it's enlarged from the stress, and I have strong lungs and a
good, strong respitory system. Basically I have one of the worst cases
of sleep apnea ever recorded in medical history. Symptoms and
sideeffects include high bloodpressure(currently 150/90 with meds),
elevated heartrate (100 resting heartrate), low oxygen saturation when
sleeping (56% enough to make you vomit and pass out if you were
awake), memory loss, concentration problems, narcolepsi, problems
sleeping, extreme nausea and headaches (for several hours after I wake
up), weight gain (I crave quick carbos all the time to keep me going).
The redistribution of oxygen from the extremities to the vital organs
causes occasional impotence, and nasty pains and cramps, both in the
nether regions, including testicles as well as muscles, and can also
cause my arms and legs to fall asleep for no reason, which is why I
have to get up and walk around at least a couple of times an hour. I'm
also sleep deprived, and haven't achieved proper sleep including
extended REM sleep for 10-12 years, something which has caused great
bouts of depression and a mild form of paranoia and agoraphobia. For
years I was diagnosed with psychatric conditions. Aversion syndrome,
clinical depression etc. So now I try not to take myself too
seriously, to see things in a humorous light, and to try to enjoy life
as much as possible.

The good news is I'm coping, for the moment anyway. I probably
wouldn't live past 30 if they hadn't diagnosed it. It's sort of a
camoflagued disease because everyone goes "But you seem so alert,
quick witted" etc. and don't understand that it takes all my energy
just to keep up appereances. Some days I just sleep and watch TV,
while I wait for my idiot doctors to come to some kind of decision.
The worst thing that could happen would be a stroke. Luckily I have
low cholesterol etc. and I'm on beta blockers.

Well, I guess that's more than you really wanted to know about me...
LOL. It's just that people are often quick to judge me as lazy or
whatnot :-)

That's awful and I am so sorry to hear this. As far as it being more
than I wanted to know, I appreciate reading about it as I've learned
something. I'll keep you in my prayers Guardian. :)

Thank you so much :-)

I just feel the need to explain thoroughly when someone asks, because
it's a complicated illness and I've taken a lot of flak over the
years, from both friends and extended family for being 'lazy' and
whatnot. They were thoroughly stunned when I told them hehe

Hehe thanks. I come from a family of survivors though... in my family,
three people have broken their necks. All three survived. Talk about
statistical improbability! My mom has survived 2 severe and a myriad
of less severe brain strokes. My dad's survived stomach cancer. My
grandma survived TB and a bursted... uh.. dont remember the word, the
thing in your stomach you don't really need. It burst on her when she
was a child, and nobody listened to her, just told her she was
exhaggerating, hehe. My grandfather survived getting crushed in a
cargolifting accident on a ship loading peer. The list basically goes
on and on LOL.. the average age in my family is 90 for women and 82
for men.

Appendix, part of the large intestine, or it it small...? IIRC it's at the
beginning of the large intestine.
