Hey guys, how's it going? =3 Hope you're all ok and getting ready for Christmas ^^ Speaking of, who would like to do a Christmas card trade? =3
Thought i'd give a little update as to why I haven't been drawing lately. This is due to some unfortunate news I received from the hospital last week aswell as the fact I am very busy with work and moving house.
About three weeks ago I was suffering with incredibly sore and weepy eyes. I assumed it was conjunctivitis so I got some drops and it helped manage the problem, but after a week the symptoms came back. So I went and saw my doctor who gave me some antibiotic drops which I needed to apply twice a day. After three days, my eyes were alot worse. They were sore, weepy,I struggled to adjust them to light in the mornings and in the evenings watching TV was near on impossible. Plus I was waking up to a soaking pillow from where they had been watering all night.
Went back to the doctors and they had to refer me to the hospital the next day. It was my first hospital appointment so I was so freaking nervous. Saw an eye specialist and I was diagnosed with blepharitis. This is a condition that can develop in some people and sadly, is not curable only 'manageable'. So I was pretty upset about that. I am on eye drops four times a day and some special paste I have to put in my eyes every night, though at the moment I have stopped the night one as it's made me worse and I forgot to apply it last week and I slept all through the night (I wake up at least twice a night with severe eye irritation)
So yeh... that was a real blow and knowing I am now going to have to be under treatment forever isn't a nice prospect, but.. I am trying to look at the positives. One is it won't effect my eye sight and the other is, it is a manageable illness. But yeh.. I am introducing myself back to screens, but slowly. Think my long night gaming sessions are over though lol. I managed to do some graphics the other day and I did a quick Silver doodle last night, so in time I am hoping to be able to get back to drawing properly ^^
On a plus note though, I am off my anxiety tablets! =3 I had my last pill the other day and the doctor was happy for me to come off them ^_^ She's pleased with my progress and thinks i'll manage ok without them
So that was good.
Still haven't moved... been living with my mum for the last two weeks and the flat is nowhere near finished yet. So I think we may well be here for Christmas, though that isn't a huge problem as we were gonna be here anyway for Christmas dinner.
I acquired a new rat this week, her name is Storm. She's identical to Lilla and very cute. I lost Lightning a few days ago, which really cut me up. Though I know I did everything I could, it still hurt when she went, but that little rattie did well and we have fond memories together. Gonna miss her <3
That's about it really.... Let me know if you'd like a Christmas card trade
