HEYYYYYYY!!!! It's been a WHILE since I made a journal, but something happened that feel I need to talk about. For the past couple of years, I've have some health problems. Pneumonia, a stroke, and some other detoriating health problems, due to the fact that I live with someone who consistently smokes marijuana, a drug which I have an allergy too. Well, about a month ago, my writing/drawing hand began developed sharp pain and weakness, almost out of nowhere. I thought it was carpal tunnel and got glove for my wrist to help, but it didn't seem to make it any better. I couldn't really do anything with the hand for a while, so I went to my doctor and he told me it was arthritis.
When it sunk in that it was arthritis, a chronic condition that may not get better, I thought of all the art I had always planned to make but always put off. I decided then and there, that I would stop that. Since then, I've been training myself to use my left hands for everything mundane (hygiene, eating, etc.), while exercising my right hand so I can use for brief periods every day to still make art.
So, You are gonna see a lot more art from me, almost daily, just because I don't want to lose use of this hand or give up on all the art yet made. My doctor prescribed some Ibuprofen, but I'm staying away from it: drugs used to relieve pain of chronic conditions usually lead to drug dependency. I'm gonna just treat my hand better and make the most of it.
I'd like to say thanks to all those who've had patience with me. If I told you I'm making art for you, I am, it's just taking more time than I ever though...but I'll get there, and it will be AWESOME...
OH...and I was supposed to go to the Arnold Sports Festival, but my hand was too weak to even hold a camera, so I cancelled my hotel and trip. I'm gonna get strong enough for the Olympia in 6 months.
...THAT is all.
