Unfortunately, the affliction i reported on yesterday has not improved. In fact, if anything, it's gotten worse. The bitterness has increased in intensity, and it is consuming a great deal of energy as i need to eat yet it is rather discomforting to do so.
With all that said, because of this recent situation, i don't have the energy to focus on this site. For the time being, i'm going to take a leave of absence from posting here. I'm not sure for how long it will be, but for now these pages will go silent. My thanks to all of you who've offered their support and advice.
