| Note Me
Hey guys. I feel like I really need to let you all know what's going on in my life. The reason why I've been so late with commissions. I really owe it to you.
First is, my body hasn't been cooperating with me. I have arthritis and carpal tunnel in my entire arms, but hurts more in my hands and wrists. Even when I take medication and wear splints, they still hurt just the same. On the outside, it feels numb. On the inside, it's a burning, stinging sensation that keeps me up at night. It hurts the most when I'm trying to sleep and when I wake up. It becomes more "bearable" in the middle of the day, when I'm at work.
It's not just my arms, it's my lower back too. I don't know how it happened but one Monday, I was trying to get out of bed to get ready for work. It was so painful. I couldn't sit up. I practically crawled out of bed. I will admit, I am a very stubborn person and really don't like missing work for anything. So I tried to take a shower and get dress. I couldn't even put on my pants or boots. It was awful. But I kept telling myself "Maybe it will get better when I'm at work." WRONG! When I went to work, I couldn't even last an hour. So I had to tell my boss and go to the hospital. I had to stay home for a week. Now to most people, staying in bed and going on the internet would be the best thing ever. Not to me. I'm a workaholic. The medication didn't work. It just caused the outside of my body to be numb, but the pain was still strong. It did make me sleep a lot though.
Another reason why commissions have been so slow is because things haven't been so great at home. Money problems and getting the blame for not being able to pay for everything even though I'm only one person. It's been effecting the way I work. I should be packing stuff up and finding a new place to live, but I hardly have time. Work takes up most of my time and I can only sew during the weekends. It's even more annoying when I have mandatory meetings on the weekends. This is why when I finish these commissions, I'm taking a long break. My lower back and wrists need a vacation. I'm hoping hat if/when I move, I can have a proper craft room. I think that will help me escape stress and inspire me to work on crafts better.
If you read all of this, you are an amazing person. Thank you so much for taking the time to read it all.
If you would like to help me with my money trouble, even just $5 or even $1 will help me, I have a paypal donation link. It would mean so much. Thank you and I hope everyone enjoys their holidays. www.paypal.me/natashaimam
