So here’s the situation: I’ve been quiet and depressed for the past several months now largely because during that big eviction problem in June (now completely solved, thankfully) I got a double dose of bad luck and came down with a crippling chronic illness, which is only broadly and vaguely known as “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome”. While the causes and symptoms of it vary between people, it’s been a severe case for me personally, that’s left me mostly bedridden for most of the time since. And as you could imagine, that’s not exactly very healthy for one’s psyche. There’s been at least a glimmer of hope, however. I’ll be working with a specialist over this next month, who is probably the best and only chance I have of at least managing the symptoms and getting back into production again to any useful degree. The act of drawing now, much less any other kind of work is incredibly challenging in my current state though. Even sitting down at a computer too long is tiring, so
Even though I barely touch my Deviantart nowadays, I just want to say that in a few days, I'll be homeless. Mostly due to things outside of my control. I don't have any idea where I'm going, what I'll do, or when I'll return. Though I'll probably live. Thanks for all the support everyone has ever given me. I'll be thinking about you all while I'm gone.
While I've been mostly dormant here and posting to tumblr and Patreon more than here, (Here are the links to them btw: http://brisineo.tumblr.com https://www.patreon.com/brisineo) I might start transferring more pics back here considering Tumblr has done the last thing they should have and the ban-happy bots are wreaking havoc and chasing everyone away.
I'll also probably open a Twitter and even a Newgrounds account as well, as backups.
