Crazy December ^^  
I always underestimate how crazy and busy it's going to be this season. I've been so stressed out that last night I thought I was having a heart attack. No kidding, my chest hurt, and I felt as if my brain was too big for my head, and my arm ached so I called the BF and told him that I was dying.

He asked me if instead of dying I wanted to go to a Pokémon Raid, so I went and I caught that sucker! But I still felt iffy so we went for a coffee.

But in just as good news as not dying, it's been a whole year since I quitted smoking! \o/\o/\o/

Alright, granted, that first month was tough and I did smoke twice, but since then nothing. It's been one year smoke-free for me and I feel great!

Okay, I feel the same, but I know inside I must be doing much better, right?

How is this season treating you though? Have you been commenting?!!?

I'm all like:


I bet that's all of us! LOL

It hasn't been helping that I've been so sick for the past 10 days but otherwise, busy life is busy.

Aw Dig. I'm sorry you're still sick, for so long, too! *hugs and offers tea*

You probably had a panic attack, sorry! I'm happy for the goal you just achieved: one month without smoking. You can do it!!!!!

I'm so terribly behind with the Erised stories at the moment. SO MUCH DRARRY, I can't even XDDD

I think it might have been part indigestion and part a cold? :D but I’m glad it’s mostly gone.

One year without smoking!!!! \o/

Good luck with catching up! There’s still time! ♥️

One year smoke free is awesome!

I'm 19 years smoke free now actually, but I still feel like a sigarette from time to time. I'm not kidding. So I think I need to stay smoke free for ever. No smoking at parties or anything.

Wow, 19 years! Amazing! You know, when I first quitted I wondered if I was ever going to stop missing it . Sometimes, most of the time actually, I just forget, but once in a while I feel the scent of it and I go ohhhhhhh that’s nice. Lol! Best to keep away from temptation. :)

Oh, damn, watch yourself carefully, darling! :S I had a moment like this last month when I was overwhelmed with stress - I actually had to get up from behind the chair and have a walk around the room and do something other than the silly projects I was working on. My mother already had one heart-attack, so I know I'm a likely candidate, so I have to watch myself properly - and make sure you do that as well! We were pretty devastated when you were ill earlier in the year.

Congrats on your quitting-smoking anniversary! *hugs* That's one hell of a feat, not everyone manages! I hope it contributes to you living a hundred years, LOL! :)

I haven't been writing or commenting much, sadly. :( My life is a nuthouse again and I hope that I can do at least some of those things in the following week when I have long-overdue time off! Good luck with winning the house of Puffies a commenting trophy all on your own, LOL! *hugs... yeah, more hugs, what the hell, they're free*

I'm sorry to hear you've also been having such a stressing time! :( What is it with the end of the year that is so crazy!? A rhetorical question as I know exactly what is it about it, but still!

I'm glad you're alright, too! I'm OK, I'm pretty sure it was definitely stress. And maybe indigestion and the flu that I am pretty sure was about to catch. ^^

I'm sorry you haven't been commenting. Does that mean you missed this Draco/Hugo Flynn wrote?


OF COURSE YOU DIDN'T! LOL I don't know what I was thinking but I'm such an amateur thinking you'd miss a Draco/Hugo post. LOL

I haven't even READ ANYTHING yet. Too much music. Tomorrow though! I don't have to do ANYTHING other than read!

I'm very pleased you stayed off the ciggies though.

Don't suppose your calendar has arrived?!? (I did send you a card a couple of weeks ago, but that was more to see whether it ever reaches you at all, rather than in any hope it'd be in time, given that the last one was returned!)
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on December 23rd, 2017 01:02 pm (UTC)
I hope you can catch up soon! There's been amazing stuff posted everywhere! Do check erised! ;) I know fics have been long this year but so good! I hope you have time during the holidays. <3

Yeah, I'm very happy I stayed off them. There was this one time I smoked, shortly after I decided to quit and I felt so bad, quasi disgusted with myself, so I never did again. :D

Nothing has arrived! I went on Wednesday, actually, and nothing there. I hope I'll have time to go today to check before Christmas. But the thing is, there's only TWO people working on this area, so going to the post office means making a line of about, say 35 to 45 minutes on a good day, and up to an hour when it's busy, and these days is very busy, so to go I have to have plenty of time, you see? But I think I will be able to today, if not, Tuesday for sure!

I'm sorry it's so crazy!

So glad it was nothing serious. ♥

You know how far behind I am with everything....damn work, damn 5 day headache...
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on December 23rd, 2017 01:02 pm (UTC)
*hugs* I know you are. I hope you can both rest and catch up this weekend, dear!

It's insane, what we fandomers put ourselves through each December, but oh what fun it is to...read in a one-horse open sleigh, or something. Hee!

Glad you're feeling better. Next time, if you get anxious, give yourself permission to take a step back from it.

And, congrats on quitting smoking!
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on December 23rd, 2017 01:04 pm (UTC)
OH my god, isn't it? But it's so glorious, too! \o/ I mean, having too much to read is about the best problem you can have, so (at least in my case) I complain and stuff but I wouldn't change this season! :D

I will absolutely follow that advise. I think going out of the house and do a bit of walking and stuff helped. :)

I have panic attacks that feel just like this. :/ *hugs* They really suck, especially the "OMG, I'm dying!" part of it!

Congrats on the not smoking! That's brilliant!

I think I might have sprained my middle finger the other week. Every time I write too much, it starts to ache. So, yes, I am commenting (and writing!) a lot, I just have to stop for a day or so every now and then to let my finger recover! :D
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on December 23rd, 2017 01:05 pm (UTC)
You do? *massive hugs* I didn't think it was a panic attack because other than the pain and the feeling I didn't feel panick-y, but that's probably a very wrong misconception to have about what a panic attack is even. :/

Oh my god! You've been injured via writing/commenting! That's equally awesome and concerning! :D

Crazy December ^^
Very happy to know you're not actually dying. Funny what stress can do to a person. I've not had a panic attack like that in some time - hugs from afar.

I've only been halfway in the holiday (s) spirit, I've miss the opportunity to give presents to people...again they will be late...sigh.

Congrats on quitting smoking, I know the feeling, over the last 22 years I've had one? And thought I would barf up my stomach.

I've not been online as much as I'd like, I was going to try and write for hp_coffeehouse but never found the time. Now though, for some holiday cooking :D

Re: Crazy December ^^
Thank you! Not too long after I quitted smoking I had half, not even one, and I felt disgusting. ^^

I hope this new year brings you more time to spend around here, my friend! Happy holidays! <3

Congrats on your not-smoking anniversary! That’s wonderful. :-D

What the heck!?!? How did I not see that you had posted AGES ago!?! Way to let me down, LJ.

EEEEEEK to the chest pain scare! I have those too and they are TERRIFYING! But, holy shit! A whole year with out smoking! That is AMAZEBALLS! I can't remember how long it's been for me because I stopped ages ago, but allowed myself one month a year when I would still smoke. It was a few years ago when I realized how dumb that was and how hard I was making life for myself. It (and drinking) were just so tied into my writing, I didn't think I could do NaNoWriMo without them. Turns out I can... sort of. ;)

Now, back to reading and commenting. ;)
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on January 2nd, 2018 02:18 pm (UTC)
A whole year! Amazing! :D ANd yet I'm trying to lose 3 kilos for like a month and I'm stuck?? LOL

I remember thinking that too. It's odd writing without smoking, I remember having these smoking breaks and figuring some shit out, writing my articles and stuff, but it's doable. At first it totally sucks, and I paced a lot instead of smoking, now.... it kinda sucks but maybe that's because smoking is smoking, you know? LOL I'm not going to lie to you! YOU KNOW!

*shakes fist at LJ*
