Hey guys! A lot has been happening in my life lately, so there will be a few things i'll be talking about. I guess i'll try to keep it as short as possible. Both good things and bad things have been happening, so at least it isn't all bad. So, let's see...
Firstly, I have a few physical problems going on. I've kinda been feeling like shit for a few months. I tried to figure out what was going on. I've had back and neck pain, my jaw was aching badly, my ears felt swollen and like they were filled with fluid, and a lot of migrane like headaches. Also, my stomach hasn't been feeling the best. Long story short, after about 2 months, we concluded that the problems with my back, neck, jaw, ears, and headaches was my posture. My posture is absolutely terrible, and it caught up to me. Also, I have TMJ, which is basically a condition where in some situations or another, you grind your teeth or clamp them together really hard, usually while you're sleeping. I noticed I clench my teeth while i'm on the computer, and I wake up with them clamped together, so that was that. My ears had another infection in them, and i'm still trying to get the fluid from the infection out of them... So i'm working on that. As for my stomach, most likely the reason why i'm having these stomach upsets is because my thyroid is low... which means it's overworking. Just great. On top of that, the symptoms I have been showing point to PCOS, or polycystic ovarian syndrome. If you want to know what that is, google it, i'm not going to explain it... But PCOS is hereditary, and my mother has it. I have had horrible luck in the gene pool, man. Aspergers, thyroid problems (which is also hereditary), PCOS, fucking TERRIBLE eyesight, the list goes on for miles. To try and regulate my thyroid, I have to be on the pill now. A lot of girls are at this age to try and balance your hormones, and from what i've heard, it helps A TON. After a few days you start to feel so much better... And I need to feel better, i'm so tired of feeling like this. I'm hoping it does wonders for me. So, I mean, if you want updates, i'll give you updates? If not, though, i'll just keep to myself, hah.
Now, on the happy side, I got a new puppy! The story behind how I have gotten a new puppy gives me chills every time I think about it. As you know, October 14th I lost my dog, a mini shnauzer named Daisy. All of my family members have been so depressed since she passed, and since we're going through an extremely tough time with finances and things like that, we've all been down. This past Friday, (about 3 days ago from the day I write this) me and my parents were reminiscing and being sad together about her at dinner, when all of a sudden my mother's phone gives a notice that she has a new email. That email was from a family who breeds dogs, and they said they had a mini shnauzer, and they were looking for someone to adopt her. We all sat silent... Because that email just came in as we were talking about how we wanted another dog, but it was all about timing. I told my mom to ask for pictures, and that's when I finished my dinner and went upstairs. About an hour later, my dad comes into my room and says "We're picking up our new dog tomorrow." and I flipped! I was so happy! Her name was Smores, but we decided to change her name. Once we picked her up the next morning, she was in great health, and she's so sweet and loving. We watched her run around and we played with her a bit, and we all decided on the name Piper. So, now we have our puppy, Piper the mini shnauzer, who is about 7 months old and is black and silver. She's built really muscular and stocky! Her birthday is April 30th. We all love her, and we all agree that Daisy sent us this dog. She knew that we all had holes in our hearts, and we needed a dog to fill them. It's been three days, and already we're happier than we were, and we're so happy to have her. She fits right in! I might post a picture when i'm able to get a nice one of her. :>
Alright... Now the final update, about my art. I still haven't been posting too much art, because i really haven't been improving much, and I keep falling into art block. Everything I draw is either hit or miss, and i'm having a tough time drawing and i'm starting to doubt myself again. All my friends have been improving at crazy speeds, and i've been slowly improving, but even then it's nothing to sneeze at. I'm not going to quit of course, because i've felt like this before and I have kept going, so i'm just going to keep going and hope that I improve more, so bear with me on this, guys! I'll try to post something really soon! :>
Woah, this journal turned out long, but thanks for reading all that if you even did read it all, hah. I'll keep you semi-updated at least, and I am on Tumblr all day, so if you want more of my ridiculousness, follow me there.
