I'm considering really coming back, and not just for commissions/AC-Doctrina like I had previously promised.
I have kept this very hush, having only recently told one or two of the people dearest to me, but I've spent the past 2 or so months in and out of hospital, in and out of doctor's surgeries, and have undergone a ridiculous amount of tests (including a couple brain scans lol) all to find out why I'm having episodes of extreme exhaustion. And I mean like....not physically being able to talk/move. And these episodes were just getting more and more frequent. And I ached virtually all over.
My diagnosis eventually came back as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Needless to say, my family was mortified given that it has no real treatment and no cure. You've got it forever. The only solace we found was that I've probably had it since I was around 9, after a particularly vicious bout of chicken pox, or since 14 after 3 months of Chronic Bronchitis. So if I've struggled with it for this long, maybe I can keep going.
But ME can come in episodes, particularly flaring up after a period of exerting yourself. And once University ended for me, it hit me like a brick wall. I also ended up developing a UTI because of how run down I was, and that only made me even more tired.
ALAS. Lots of rest and 2 courses of antibiotics later, I'm getting better, and actually want to pick up my tablet pen again.
SO! Going to get my commissions done ASAP and start drawing again. ; v; )
