I apologize for the lack of art updates. I wish I could say my new year is off to a good start but it's not. my DA my art tumblr have all screeched to a halt as has my productivity level. I've lost my passion for things I once loved. I thought this was something I could over come with sheer force of will. but it's not quite that simple, If you follow my twitter
and my tumblr you already know what I've been plagued by near constant jaw clenching (bruxism) for the last year and when I talked to both my dentist and my doctor about it and they both said the same thing that the bruxism is just a symptom of a deeper underlying problem, I have severe anxiety and depression and was just prescribed my first dose of sertraline and will begin seeing a therapist shortly.
So Hopefully things will be looking up. I've been so quiet because I didn't know how to talk about it, but problems don't ever get solved by NOT talking about them. I have sort of retreated into my shell, lurking on my messengers and being reclusive in general. I don't mean to be, if you see me online feel free to talk to me or message me or e-mail me. I hide if I don't want to talk to anybody, If you see me around I would love to hear from my friends.
I've been trying to cut down on things that stress me out to make the teeth clenching stop, I've been trying to get more sleep, read more books, all that other flowery bullshit that is supposed to be relaxing but not all of it is in my control, some people feel it necessary to harass me making my jaw clenching worse and my heart palpitations skyrocket.
So art is going to be slow for awhile, while I try to restore balance into my life. I wish I could snap my fingers and everything wold be hunky dory but a chemical imbalance isn't quite so easy to fix. I'll be trying to find work again since the holiday season is over and so is my employment. In the mean time I'll try to work on my art challenges on my art tumblr
and putting my portfolio together, you can see those pieces in my scrap section
once I begin to upload them but do not hold your breath.
