An Update on My Health… And My Next Video

Sick in the head! (and the body)

I need to start this post off and let you know that as far as I know I do not have any major life threatening health problems, so please do not worry about me in that regard. I’m over weight, and probably overall an unhealthy man as a result, but I do not mean to come off as if I am dying.

However, for the past few months (starting back in December if I recall correctly) I have been pretty regularly under the weather. From colds to viruses to full out influenza – I believe I have experienced every general illness that isn’t incredibly serious.

For about a week now I have been battling what I believe

is influenza. I’m not a fan of going to the doctor, but my nightly temperature has been approaching 102F every day so I bit the bullet and went in. They ran a few tests and couldn’t figure out what is wrong with me, so unfortunately they just told me I need to treat the symptoms with OTC medicine. (they said it was probably influenza, even though the test came back negative) Heh, honestly probably shouldn’t have even bothered to go in but I have been in hell, so I thought I would at least make an effort at seeking professional help.

Why do I keep getting sick?

I believe the reason for my constant illness partly has to do with me being generally unhealthy at 33 years old, as I do not think I am getting enough exercise along with the fact that I have a 1 year old son that touches everything everywhere I take him. I went through another spell of constant sickness when my daughter was around his age. It’s awful, but I don’t think there’s much I can do in that regard – kids will be kids. I’ll get better eventually, with a super-sized immune system.


I had a brief window of not being very ill a couple weeks back and was able to record the over 3,000 word script for my next review. I’ve still been slowly putting it together, but I apologize for not getting it out before the end of last month like I said I would. I really feel bad about that, and I don’t think I will announce a video ahead of time until it’s very close to being finished. When I spend time on a video I don’t like to slap it together haphazardly in the editing stage. I put a lot of work into it and it would just be a waste to not take the time and edit it correctly.

What is my next video? It’s one that’s been heavily requested by people who enjoy my Super Mario videos.

Here’s a hint:

I’ll see ya soon!
