For anyone unfamiliar with the term medically it's described as a numbness, ache and weakness usually caused by some sort of nerve damage. In January I sustained an injury to my drawing hand and now my right hand is partially numb and shaky particularly the pinky and ring fingers as well as that same side of my palm. In February it felt like I hit my funny bone repeatedly and I could barely hold a pencil straight. Since then I've started physical therapy for the Ulnar nerve damage and I've seen gradually increased improvement over these past few months. Initially I was terrified that I would never again work in my chosen field yet alone be able to feel my right hand again. I had to radically accept the fact that it may be permanent and a career change may even be necessary. Since then though I have slowly been regaining my confidence little by little and I have hope that I may eventually be able to work in a creative field again sometime in the near future. Making sure I do my Ulnar nerve exercises, going to physical therapy at least once a week, and drawing every chance I get I think have helped me push forward tremendously. I think also going back to basics in traditional medium which is much less forgiving than digital media has also helped as well as playing with looser styles and mediums. The benefits have not just been physical but it has also helped me deal with the mental fallout as well. Along with increased physical exercise and better eating habits I plan to keep moving forward whether or not I regain full sensation in my drawing hand.
