12-11 update: So far the CT scan has ruled out ovarian cancer [which is why my doc had me do the scan in the first place], so that's good news. The scan did find that it appears one of my ovaries has collapsed and a few new things wrong with my uterus so she's contacting specialists to translate the images better. Hopefully I'll know more by the end of the week. [In the mean time my symptoms feel like they're getting worse so I have no idea what could be making me sick. Meh.]
I've been so busy I haven't had much of a chance to draw anything. I've also been exhausted after work, partly my chronic fatigue and partly the anti-nausea medication I'm on. But next paycheck I'll be able to afford a new scanner [I've got one picked out and everything <3] so that should help motivate me a little. Or at the very least, get better scans of recently finished pieces up.
I have a rescheduled CT scan coming up this Tuesday to hopefully uncover why, for the last two months, I have horrendous nausea or have to be sick after nearly every meal. [Regardless of portions, eating speed, or type of food.] I've also dropped a lot of weight very quickly, which is worrying the parents. We've already ruled out a few things but my new doctor [who is amazinggggg] is curious as to why my ovaries are hurting on top of my other symptoms. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed that something, anything is found.
But at least my uterus isn't hurting! *bashes face into wall*
Tonight it's going to me -23 outside tonight. Fuck.
And yesterday, for some strange reason, I wanted to play with a Wacom tablet. I have an older model inherited from an old friend but I remembered my mother had purchased one about 2, 3 years ago and stopped using after her last computer crashed. [She used to do awesome abstract digital paintings.] So I've now adopted a beautiful Bamboo Wacom tablet that I'm absolutely in love with and I've been trying to get to know it better. Approaching digital art feels so intimidating, but I'm hoping the more I play with it, the closer it'll feel like pencil and pen to me.
Not that anything could ever replace traditional art for me. I just wanna see what I'm capable of in another medium. Couldn't hurt.
Hopefully I don't suck really hard at it
Sorry I haven't been as active. I hope everyone is doing well and I shall do my best to be artistically active again
