I’ve been thinking about updating the blog but it’s just kind of gotten by me.
How am I doing? I’m ok most of the time. Anxiety is still very high but I’m feeling much better. I’m better able to handle issues that arise with CNAs. That in itself is huge.
I’ve got a really good mix of medication from a very wonderful Nurse Practicioner. Although I can’t take anything to treat the OCD, this has been a regular discussion with my therapist and nurse practitioner. Learning about OCD issues has been uber triggering.
While eating is still an issue, hydration has greatly improved. Unfortunately my strength has not. I’ve fallen 3x in 3 weeks, w one requiring EMTS. I was seriously hurt. I may have to have outpatient surgery on my thumb.
My right shoulder is still swollen and jacked up. In an unrelated issue, I’ve got oral surgery coming up. Since I have to stop my blood thinner for 2 days before the surgery, all this makes me nervous.
I’m pleased to say that my shop has a piece of artwork in it for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic.
The piece is true to Sundrip in that it’s on paper, it’s small, brightly colored and highly symbolic. Even though the name is very emotional and personal, I’ve kept it. It fits what I was trying to express.
Someone to Plead for Me
The tallest figure is clearing the dark cloud hanging over her head and the head of those dependant on her. As they stand together, roots reach up from the ground trying to strangle their steps. Still, the largest figure offers relief and hope.
Someone to Plead for Me is available either in my Etsy shop or via PayPal. Please contact me if you have questions or are in need of financial assistance. I no longer mail internationally. I’m sorry.
I’ve got a much better arrangement for art now bc of the amount of privacy I’ve got now. I love the curtains put up. It’s just enough of a feeling of privacy that I can paint and leave art to dry without worrying it’ll be seen while drying.
I’ve also changed how my paint is stored. I now have everything horizontally which makes it so much easier to access. I put the paint in my “room” instead of in the walk in closet area. This means I have what I primarily use close to me without having to lug the paints back and forth.
So this is what I’ve been up to.
Peace to you,
