Hello everyone, it has been a little while since the last update I made and this time I have news.
I finally have a diagnosis for the pain in my back, on Tuesday the 11th of February I went and saw a chronic pain specialist after two hours of talking to this doctor he informed me that the pain I feel in my back is a strain of fibromyalgia, this affects the entire right side of my body. For those who don't know Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals. So in short the right side of my body, the nerves are sending off pain signals when I am not really in pain, I detect hot and cold far more strongly on my right side than on my left. Now I know most of you are gonna be asking 'Is there a cure is there any medication you can take to fix this' and the answer is no. there is no magic cure for this no pill that will fix this. The only hope I have for this pain to ease is daily exercise and physiotherapy. Another question you might be asking is 'how did this happen how did you get this?' well my therapist believes it been caused by my PTSD. Which is believable many studies are showing that PTSD and emotional trauma can manifest pain in one's body.
So what does this mean going forth? well, it means that while my struggles with pain continue my progress on commissions might be slow it doesn't mean that I cant do them I have been heavily working on commissions in the background with those following on twitter seeing the small cheeb art I have been doing and the small streams of bigger images being done. What this also means is I have stopped doing Patreon, I will not be active enough to supply the things promised on Pateron enough for it to be worth doing going forward. So if you want to support me and my work I have a ko-fi. which you can find here
I want to thank everyone and there patience with me for the endless support and for the understanding of the issues I have been going threw, it's going to be
a major new year going forth with new understanding and hopefully better health.
if you have any questions don't be afraid to ask them below!
