Almost a month ago, I'm right in the middle of my Found Footage Fest 2012 and I'm feeling pretty good then suddenly...I feel like shit. I had bad headaches and I just felt blah. I figured it was a sinus infection and took meds for it and moved on with my life. But after another week and not feeling any better, I decided to go see my doctor.
First they examined my head to see if it is a infection and I can now say that there is medical evidence that nothing is wrong with my head! I FINALLY HAVE PROOF!! So...what gives?
They also did a blood test and turns out my blood isn't exactly blood but sugary syrup. Oh joy. I have "The D Word".
I dunno how many of you reading this is diabetic but I'm sure the first time you found out, you probably weren't too happy with life. ON TOP of the fact I felt like utter shit, so I just kinda didn't feel like doing anything. What made all this WORSE was this all happened right around Halloween, which is my favorite holiday. And I couldn't even enjoy it.
I solidered on, did roughly 200 podcasts in the month of October but I ignored my reviews and writing. I was gonna go all out on Halloween at Man, I Love Films but I had to post reruns. I dropped the found footage fest thing cause I didn't feel like trying to be funny. I guess you could say I was feeling depressed.
Thankfully, the doctor gave me medicine instead of insulin because I cannot stand needles and I had to change my diet (Step 1: stop drinking sugar) and work on my health a bit. After two weeks, I've lost a good 15 pounds and I'm finally feeling like my old self.
So what does all this mean? I'm back right? Well...not exactly. While I was sick and not doing anything I did some thinking. I thought about how I been doing this for 7 years, how I reviewed easily over 200 shitty movies and how I built a small following. I thought about how I've won Best Horror Blog FIVE years in a row and how great all that felt. And I thought about the people who follow and read me and how I most likely let them down. Not just now but any time I don't post anything for a long time. Why should anyone follow me and this website if nothing is going to be posted?
So it's time I stop. I think Invasion of the B-Movies has run it's course in life and it's probably time to put the old gal to bed. However, I like making things all Even Steven so I will continue out the year and end on a bang! Review as many movies as I can, reviewing all the ones I've always wanted to, and other things. But after December 2012, I will put this site in it's final resting place.
Trust me, I've thought about this and this is what I feel is the right decision to make. But don't worry just yet, you got me for at least another month and then-
