I decided to write a journal as a tiny bit of a follow up on my health situation,
as a lot of people have been concerned about me in the past few weeks, and have been asking me how I was.

Up until now, there honestly haven't been a lot of updates.
The situation was pretty much the same. I've gotten new medication for the migraines. It took another few days off the next attack, but unfortunately also came with very bad and serious side effects that made me very sick and impacted my life greatly. Yes, I've been absent at times. And yes, I've been agitated at times --more than I'd usually be. Though some of those trolls could probably even drive a sane person to madness.

Last week I finally received some good news from the hospital.

After more than 3 months or waiting, making phone calls, negotiating with insurances and whatnot... the waiting is finally over. I'm starting my rehabilitation treatment next week. And although I'm not sure what to expect, I seriously can't put into words how happy I am they're finally actually going to do something. 

What this is going to mean for DeviantArt is yet unclear.
I suspect recovery is going to be a long way and rather heavy, so I doubt whether I'll be able to spend any time at the drawing table in the coming weeks. As for conventions and art workshops; I've cancelled them all of them for now, at least up until the next convention season (starting in 2015). I'm just not strong enough to pull it off at the moment.


In the meanwhile; I'll probably spend a lot of time waiting at the hospital.
So if anyone plays Pokemon with me, wants to trade, or exchange trainer ID's.... click the drawing below and leave your data in the comment section there;

I actually hit 40k :la: Almost can't believe it!

I wish you the very best with your migraines and everything else - I too struggle with them. Personally I get light sensitive and nauseous. I have run the topomax/venlafaxin/verapamil/ gambit. I have even run through the Botox shots. And I have gone through some of the crap reactions - if you ever need to vent just drop me a note ok? I am rooting for you!

I wish you best of luck and health with your medical treatment  (and endurance during the waiting time between the treatments...).  It is really great that you actually get help and rehabilitation treatment, not just waiting to get the appointments or negoating with the insurance company and the docs,  I know how nerve wrecking and exhausting it can be.

Oh congrats for cracking the 40 000 border. Never knew that somebody could get that many watchers XD

Hello. I just wanted to wish you best of luck with your treatments. Having been hospitalized five times for inpatient migraine treatment since October last year, I wanted to let you know you are not alone. 

Congratulations on your 40k watchers. Your art is beautiful and I wish I had discovered it sooner.

feel free to message me anytime, I will gladly answer questions, or just hear you out.
