What happened to timethief?


To make a long story short I have injured myself quite seriously. I’m suffering from a head injury and from severe muscle tearing in both legs. The symptoms of my concussion related injuries include blurry vision, foggy thinking, short attention span, inability to focus long on tasks, migraine headaches, irritability  and short term memory loss. Therefore, I am not capable of researching and writing in depth blog posts and Richard (bless him) has been writing posts for onecoolsite.

I have been working in the background on another installment in the How to Become a Better Blogger series.

I’d like to express my gratitude to Richard and to all the faithful readers who have been returning to onecoolsite. I really appreciate your support.

UPDATE: November 28, 2008
It may take up to 18 months for a full recovery and I’m now 3 months into the healing process. I have had the support of several bloggers who have helped my by writing posts for onecoolsite and I’m so grateful for their help that I’d like to send them my link love.

  1. Thanks. I’m 6 months into a healing process predicted to take 18 months. I’m doing the best I can to keep pace and I’m forgiving myself for not being able to post as frequently as I did before. I’m determined to recover fully and I appreciate your prayers for me.

  2. I pray you get well soon.

  3. It’s a long recovery that apparently is going to take months. I’m grateful that it wasn’t worse. Thanks for your well wishes.
    Peace be unto you.

  4. timethief, take care of yourself and i hope you get better soon…


  5. I have visited your redesigned blog and it’s looking great. Thanks again for your best wishes re: my health.

  6. I am glad to know that you are healing and healing well. Blogging has slowed down, I see you now have a site of your own! Cheers! And I took a leaf from this blog of yours and have completely redesigned my blog, am using DePo theme. It is nice and clutter free and quite different. And I guess I am getting tired of wordpress, their no-ads needs a fee now! Anyways good luck!

  7. Thanks for your concern and well wishes. I am healing. Concussions take a long time to heal. The good news that my neck vertebrae are back in place and the muscle tearing in my neck and legs are also healing very well. My blogging has actually slowed because I have been suffering from migraines and I must avoid eyestrain as my optical nerve to my left eye is damaged. I hope your are well and happy too. Take good care.

  8. tt,

    I am sorry to read that you have injured yourself. I hope you are a lot better now and I shall pray for your complete recovery. Please take good care of your self. On another note, it is so good to see you blogging so much now a days :)

  9. A Blog Catalog friend of mine located the article and translated it. All I did was ask for help and then post the results. It’s good news.

  10. I love you tt! :mrgreen: How did you find that out? No one over here knows about it! I was getting ready to leave not just my country but the whole stupid EU! :lol:

    What I read is that the law was not introduced so there’s nothing to write about.

  12. I may be in contact with you very soon. :)

  13. Whatever your capability in the moment, it is more than enough for the burden placed on you. Sometimes people place inappropriate burdens on you, but there is no corresponding obligation to pick those up.

    Like I said, you make yourself your #1 priority and if there is anything I can do (which I doubt) just let me know. If only to distract you with email.

  14. Bless you timethief. All my very, very best to you. Get well soon!

    @ tt and Richard: European bloggers are in desperate need of help. Read this and be horrorfied: They want to ban blogging under pseudonym. I hope you will do some posts on this issue.

    I have avoided contacting you and giving you the low down. Here’s a link. Please scroll down to the last comment http://thistimethisspace.com/2008/08/23/falling-falling-falling/

  16. My god, I’m horrified to hear about this. Please, please take care of yourself and concentrate on healing and patience. We want you to be back to 100% before WordPress does another “improvement” or we’ll be screwed!

    Seriously, take care and don’t forget to enjoy some of that special tea. It can help.

  17. So very sorry to hear (or rather read) about your injuries. I wish you a speedy and complete recovery.

  18. Thanks for the get well wishes. I’m not bored. When I can focus and read I’m reading about the semantic web. :)

  19. I hope your recovery moves forward quickly and safely… speaking from experience however, your recovery doesn’t have to be boring:
