:uh
Kate Janse van Rensburg (formerly Salmonsen) AKA Annarrogance on the Blab. It's been months since I've hard from her. Anyone know anything?
I know she boguht the house, got married and had school going on too...it's just worrysome to not hear a thing for quite some time. As with other artists, I have a few of her pieces here and one has been ready to go home for a while.
Is she okay? Anyone know?
Sorry to publicly ask. I've tried private routes to no avail.
I'm worried!

Ditto. I wish she'd check in. Hopefully her life is so full and cool, she just doesn't have time or think of it.

I'm really worried about Kate myself... :uh I haven't heard or seen her post since JANUARY. I know she checked in then and everything seemed fine with her, just busy... But still. I hope she's ok!

She's missing her turn in the member spotlight too :sad

I know hoe easy it is to just drop off the map when something happens. I hope it's nothing too bad, fingers crossed she's just having too much fun to join us here!

I would have expected her to be back by now since most schools are out. She could be taking summer courses though. Hope you're O.K. Kate! :grouphug

I've been wondering myself, so I emailed her last week. No reply. Haven't seen her on AIM either.

Kaaate.... come back! http://www.modelhorseblab.com/forums/images/smilies/sad.gif

Just to update!
I got a message form her today! She's very much alive, just been out of touch and overloaded. I'm sure all that have business with her will be hearing from her soon.

Just wanted to relieve worry. I'm SURE her inbox is thousands so give her a chance to catch up! :)

Hey guys, just wanted to let you all know what's been going on! I'm sorry for any concern I've caused y'all, and I do appreciate that you missed me! :D

I've been suffering from severe exhaustion for the past few months. I've been a bit in denial about it, thinking I was just not getting enough sleep or was burned out or stressed from school, or that dealing with our house and the INS and school at the same time was too much, or something. I've been totally shut down the whole time. Simple things that shouldn't tire me out do-- writing emails, going to the grocery store, cleaning the house, going to class, etc. When I'm not actually IN bed, all I can think about is going to bed, even if I'm having fun.

It's really been affecting me, and I don't think I realized how much. I knew I hadn't had the energy to go to the barn for months, and that I just wasn't getting much in my life done. I knew it was affecting Henry and that it was driving him NUTS to have a wife who's in bed all the time, especially since I was so active and energetic when we met 5 years ago. But I don't think I really realized how much it was depressing me until one night a couple of weeks ago where I pretty much broke down and told Henry how awful I felt, and how I couldn't imagine living like this anymore.

I didn't really think there was anything I could do about it (I thought it was Epstein-Barr or something since I had Mono a couple of years ago and that seems to be when this all got started, although it's been increasingly worse since then), but I went to see my doctor, who is an infectious disease specialist. He said it was either anemia, thyroid problems, or a form of low-grade narcolepsy that sometimes affects people with my sleep disorder (Night Owl Syndrome, but I'm not sure of the proper name), since we're forcing ourselves to be on a "normal" sleep schedule that isn't normal for our bodies, as our circadian rythyms are off (mine is about 8 hours slow).

Well, the blood test results came back, and I'm not anemic, and no thyroid problems. So he started me on some vitamins and a new prescription called Provigil (it's kinda like Ritalin, but designed for these narcoleptic-type sleep disorders). I've been taking the vitamins for about a week, and I started my prescription today. I have to say I feel really great so far (as evidenced by the fact that I actually felt good enough to get on the 'net and come see y'all!)-- I even feel like I have enough energy to go work my horses or go jogging or something, and it's like 103 outside! I have a ton of energy, and I don't feel down or depressed at all (although I was never tired because I was depressed, I was depressed because I was tired, if that makes any sense).

So we'll see how it goes with these meds. I can't promise I'll be around regularly yet, as I have to see if this keeps up in the long term, and pray I don't get any weird side-effects, although thankfully this medication doesn't seem to have many. I always get the weird 1% of the population side effects, though! :) Anyway, I've missed y'all and I do hope to be around more soon, but I don't want to promise and then have y'all get worried about me again! Just know that I'm OK and marriage and life and house and school are all OK, and that things are definitely looking up energy-wise! I miss you all and our wonderful forum, and I am really going to try to get back here more often.

Take that, Tom Cruise! :lol

Hey Glad youre ok! I know how you feel. I had so many tests done cause I was just so tired all the time. It was my depression. I am now On Zoloft and my doctor gave me that Provigil too for the energy and it does help. Ive been feeling so much better.

Glad your doing better!
