Continued Absence

i havn’t been blogging much lately, there simply hasn’t been time.  What with working full time, studying full time (i’ve been working towards my masters) and suffering for severe sleep apnoea, I just havn’t had the creativity or – more importantly, anything to say.

 Previously, when I havnt had anything to say, i’ve linked to things other people have been saying – but I havn’t even been reading other peoples opinions, let alone developing any of my own.

This will change soon. Tomorrow I go into hospital and, the gods being kind, hopefully I will be coming out the next day ready to take a first step towards a new life. It will be a long journey, a minimum of two years before I can be considered fully healthy again, but hopefully I will see early results very fast.  I can’t even begin to tell you how much I am looking forward to a proper nights sleep – it has been more than a year now and I have forgotten what it is like to operate on decent sleep.  I want to know what it is like to be able to work without fear of falling asleep at my desk.  I want my boss to not have to tap me on the shoulder as he walks past to wake me up.

 They’ve been good to me, simply by not firing me.  Lord knows i’ve probably been more trouble than worth with this. I don’t know if they will keep me on much longer, or if I will end up back at my contracting company, but at least they gave me a bit of a shot.

This will change soon.  I will have more energy. I will be healthier.

I will also write here more. It is important to find time to give back, so I will endevour to write more technical articles and post every day if possible, even if its just to point out some cool web things you may have missed.

If you read this post, spare a moment to wish me luck tomorrow.  Its my first time in hospital and it is intimidating. The only thing getting me through it at the moment is the knowledge that when I go into the operation, my fiancee will be waiting for me when I wake up.

 Some things are worth more than gold.
