I can’t remember if I have talked about this at all, but over the last year and a half I have been experiencing some pretty grim health problems. If I may, I would like to take a few moments to talk about my problematic vagina.
I know, I know, it’s not something we are supposed to talk about in public, vaginas and periods and hormones, but my vagina has put me through hell so I’m going to put it on blast for a moment. Tomorrow I will be going for a small procedure which will hopefully remove some growth (from the endometrial lining if you are interested in specifics) that should hopefully stop the bleeding which I have been experiencing everyday, for over a year.
Now lots of people, health care professionals and otherwise have given me remorseful looks when I say that. ii am on iron tablets and am still quite aneamic, and I am also just fed up. So while I have the normal pre-hospital jitters, I am also really looking forward to the end of this irritating joyride my womb has decided to take me on.
I will still be posting over the next week, in fact drawing might be one of the few things I can continue to do for a couple of days. In fact all of this has made me stop and consider a few things. Instead of being annoyed that this has slowed me down and forced me to take some recovery time, I am trying to see the silver lining that it gives me some time for rest and to do things which I haven’t had time to do. Like slightly more complicated drawings… and playing Calico until the gentle soundtrack and pallete are burned into my subconsciousness.
You may notice that I have been posting more works in progress. This is partly because my energy levels mean that I don’t always have the reserves needed to finish a drawing a day, but it is also because I am trying to do more complicated drawings. I have been attempting to do things that are more challenging then I have done in the past. I want to enjoy what I post, not just churn out quick doodles because I feel obligated to post.
I hope this means that you will continue to enjoy my doodles even if there is a change to how I will be posting moving forward.
If you like what you see and want to support me, why not buy me a coffee?
