ask me for my ello!
I know I don't post here very much anymore, I'm going to try and change that this year. If you're only following me on this account, you've missed a lot of issues going on with me, medically. So here's what's been going on:

About 2 years ago I had a bad case of gallstones. I was prescribe hydrocodone (or Norco) and sent away till it was time for surgery. After the gallstone surgery, I noticed a pain in my butt (so embarrassing, I know). My doctor said i had a pinched nerve, gave me more Norco, and sent me away... 3 months later i couldn't walk and I wasn't sleeping, the pain was so bad.

The doctors found that I have two bulging discs in my lower lumbar system and they're pinching a nerve in my leg. I was given more Norco. During a cortisone injection treatment, my shoulder decided to start hurting.

Doctors found my collar bone to be misaligned, I have tendonitis in my bicep, a really bad rotary cuff and I have a really messed up neck vertebrae. They said it might be due to tumor that was resigning in my brain stem, pushing against my vertebrae and grabbing onto my brain stem. 

The biopsy/surgery was an extremely dangerous procedure: I was told if I survived, i would most likely be paralyzed from the collars bones on down (i'm not btw). After four months of waiting, the results returned negative: the surgery failed to relieve me of my constant pain. The strongest theory at the moment is that I have a birth defect: I was born with nerves that don't fully register my muscle's usage, overexerting them constantly. 

Once I found out the biopsy was negative and the issue was the nerves themselves: I decided to go on an alternative route for treatment. I've been doing acupuncture for the past month, and combining that with my new physical therapy: I'm getting better!

According to these new treatment centers: I've learned that the past decade I've done nothing but stress myself from one situation to the next. If both the doctors and the treatment centers are correct: I'm in really bad shape. Fortunately, I've been responding a lot to the PT and the acupuncture: just this last week we found that my leg pain is due to Piriformis Syndrome, and the cure for it is a really awkward looking stretch (but hey it works!)

Thankfully, my insurance has been covering most of these procedures; and I'm so grateful with every ounce of my soul for those who have been helping me and caring for me, my family, friends and fans who have shown their kindness and generosity towards me.

But this is where you can come in, check out this link to my fundraiser:…

So, that's my story and my current life situation. I'm in desperate need of your assistance. You can really, really change my world with a donation: the more you donate, the more I am guaranteed a success in my life. 

Regardless, thank you. Thank you for just taking the time and listening to my story. I hope you have a great day.

Have you ever drawn fanart for The Iron Giant? I think your style would look really cool doing some art based off that movie. :)
