Without going too much into detail, I wanted to let you know that my health recently took a turn for the worst.
My physical condition wasn't already too good, but it pretty much went down the drain over the last few weeks. Migraine attacks have been shutting my body down almost completely. With attack sequences that last for over a week, and no medicines that work anymore, I'm pretty much at the end of my energy.

I've spoken to various doctors over the last few weeks.
None them were able to provide a simple solution for the issue, as the nature of my illness isn't one that's easy to solve. I'm currently under a lot of stress from both my job and personal life -- because like I said; things aren't always easy, and certainly aren't easy to explain to people. I'll be going for long term rehabilitation therapy soon. In the meantime doctors recommended me to take a break from as many stress factors as is possible, under which internet community's like DeviantArt. Probably also because migraines make it pretty much impossible to spend time in front of a computer screen.

I might post some art here every now and then, but I won't be active anymore for a while.

See you around!

With kind regards,
Damai Mikaz

I dont ever want to see a life end, period... but just know this...  your journals are inspirational and brightly thought out,  (well maybe not this one) but you need to know that you have helped many people with your words and your art is obviously worth something seeing that you literally pour your time and soul into it.  Personally speaking, it could be your escape from the world around you, and it is a way to be noticed.  Critically speaking, you have rich colors and shading in most to all of your works.  Directly speaking, you works spoke out to the population and you have had something to say.

all this is from my heart and fingers, and i hope it gets through the comments you scroll through.  Nice attention-getter up there eh?

There really isn't a better way to articulate my feelings about this matter, so I'll keep it simple to refrain from being over-emotional. Please, get better, friend.

I have experienced much what you have described here.  I have no words to describe the empathy and sadness I feel at reading that post.  I remember about eight years ago beginning to have seizures from weeks of endless attacks, culminating in an 8-hour continuous - and endless - cycle of flatlining for two minutes followed by a 250 bpm pulse rate, in an ER at a leading medical center no less, and ended up with a pacemaker at 32. I still have syncopy, I even have bleeding in my brain which is inoperable, and I spend about two to three weeks out of the year sitting in an infusion clinic getting pumped full of the most vile soup you can imagine, but it only helps marginally.  So I feel you in ways I wish I did not.  I am so sorry.  Take care, and for the love of all that is pure and light, get better.

 Have you tried foot reflexology or
zone therapy on yore feet or acupuncture? 1000 year old healing art
and you must not believe in it because the body reacts anyway.
Take care

I take Depakote for my migraines.  It's a strong medication that requires blood work.  It's usually for people who have bipolar disorder but in some cases for those who get bad migraines. Maybe you have tried it but it changed my life.  Good luck!

You are right...Migraine shuts you down completely, so you can start by Zero and this means literally you start from scratch. You lay naked, ripped off from everything even your body, so you can think of what it is, that has to be changed in your life. I do hope, you find, what´s bothering you. I hope, you will get better soon!
