So, this is going to be very personal life and health based.
If you ain't into that, that's fine. I don't expect all of you to read this, but sometimes it's good to get this sort of thing out there when you got a bunch of people asking where you've been, where their commission or gift is, if I will ever respond to their comments/notes, or some other reason. Or, they're just genuinely concerned about me, which I greatly appreciate.
So, let me first talk about what's been going on lately, then we'll get into the nitty gritty of, well, other things. Like commissions.
Let me start out by saying I was in a crisis center last night.
Hahahahaha, wow what a jump.
If you read one of my later updates, you know I have clinical depression, general anxiety disorder, and a severe social phobia. Yeah, real original, I know. I did end up getting medication for these issues, and I do see two different psychiatrists regularly. Buuuuuuuut, that of course can't help absolutely everything. It's not impossible for me to have a complete meltdown or occasional panic attacks. Yeah, it happens, and this often gets in the way of everyday activities, like school, or hobbies, like drawing. I can usually deal with it to extent, it's just that the past two days were just particularly difficult.
I stayed home from school on Thursday, due to extreme stress, and physical symptoms from said stress. I felt like crap the whole day for the most part, and it all climaxed when I had a mental break down around six o' clock. I don't really want to go into detail about that. So, we went to the hospital at about seven-thirty, and as I mentioned before, I stayed the night there, and didn't get back home until about noon today. Due to the severity of my circumstances, prolonged hospitalization has been considered. As in, three days to a week, basically. However, since things died down by the time morning came, I was allowed to go home. Whether or not I will be taken into a hospital is yet to be determined.
Why am I telling you this?
Well, to me it's one thing to say "yo, I have such and such mental illness, so I can't do certain things or get things done sometimes". Some people see that as a cop out, or an excuse. This is me saying that things can get pretty bad, even though I am receiving treatment, so I'm sorry if I can't get certain things submitted or make updates as much as I'd like.
So, what does that mean at the moment?
Well, I certainly don't update as much as I used to. I'm still working as much as I can on everything I owe people, but I get more work done on some days than others. To be honest, I really want to work on something for myself,but it's hard when you don't know what to draw, and have been in an inspiration slump for almost a month. Also, you may have noticed a few changes to my art statuses; I'm not just automatically accepting point commissions or trades like I usually do. Cash commissions, on the other hand, are open, and you can find more information about that on my page. If you want something, that is.
This would be a hiatus, but I'm not really going anywhere.
Also, I got a skype. It's the same as my username, dawg. Following-the-Rabbit. I tend to get on there a lot, since it's an easy access thing on my ipod. I can't promise I'll get back to you immediately, but feel free to drop me a line on occasion. Just leave your name/username in the contact request.
Further more, just a friendly reminder that I also have two blogs that I post to occasionally.
I think that's about it. Whew!
Once again, I'm sorry for the inactivity and lack of updates. I hope everyone has a great weekend, and I hope to talk to y'all soon.
