This week I went in for a physical and a check-up on my wrists. Health-wise I'm doing well enough. I do need to get a blood test but so far, my doctor's pretty pleased with my well-being. My wrists, however, have gotten a little worse this week. My weakness isn't improving and the pain comes back in waves. Some days I can get by just fine but some days I'm taking anti-inflammatory medication as often as the bottle will allow me to. I drop things far too often, I fumble things, and over the last week just eating with a fork has been something of a struggle. My doctor is not happy with how my last nerve conductivity test was conducted since only one tendon in one hand was tested. He's going to refer me to another specialist for a more in-depth test and a second opinion. He's assured me that shot or surgery, we'll try to find a solution. I'm really hoping that it all gets squared away soon. My boss is concerned that I can't work long-term because of how often I'm dropping things or the difficulties he's noticed I have on the floor. I've assured him that I can work just as hard as anyone else if given the chance so we'll see how it goes. I refuse to sit around feeling sorry for myself if I am still able to work an honest job that I frankly am in love with.
Art-wise I'm starting to really push myself to at least sketch something once a day. I'm going back to my roots of traditional work and I think it's really helping me to get over some road blocks in my artwork that I've been facing lately. I'm hoping to get one completed CG work done a month and completing a sketch set every week to show off on DA.
Other than those things, not much is going on in my life. Thank you again for all your thoughts, prayers, and support!

Seriously! How beautiful is this?! I cannot thank
enough for giving Thalion some life this year. He's one of my oldest, most dear characters and she's captured him perfectly. Thank you so much! ;A; He's stunning!
Legacy of Para group on DA!
and myself decided it's about time we start up a group for ParaChiMar: The Legacy of Para. For those interested this group is pretty much just a good place to dump all of our LoP artwork, trades, commissions, and fanart into. I've also made a small stamp collection to celebrate. Check us out. :3
