Dammit, I had to go and get this song stuck in my head.
SO, a quick roundup of stuff:Health
A few days before Easter Sunday I managed to dislocate my right elbow. I'm right handed so it really screwed me over, I was less than pleased. I am however, finally getting some luck.
"But Nicola, you just dislocated your elbow, how the hell is that lucky?!" I hear you say?
When I was 17 I dislocated my elbow in the exact same way. I popped the bones past the elbow and you could see them stretching the skin. I lost sensation in my hand and grip, it took me seven months or so to hold a pen again. In that time, someone else had to take notes for me in my classes and I was forced to drop art at A-Level standard because I'd screwed up my arm so badly I couldn't finish my qualification.
This time, my grip has come back extremely quickly. THAT is lucky. I still have some severe pain and numbness in the forearm and hand (I think the bone sliding back in managed to take a nerve with it, trapped nerves, ugh) along with tingling up the arm to my shoulder. BUT I CAN GRIP A MOTHER FUCKING PEN.
That. Is. Lucky.
So, kind of a toss up?
I also went ahead and finally joined the FibroUK forums. I did it yesterday when I was suffering a flare up. I hadn't had one for a while, in that amount of severity. My dizziness and faitgue were so intense that I was afraid I'd fall over and hurt myself, so I spent all day curled up in bed with my laptop, waiting it out. But even with the faitgue, I was restless, especially in my legs, so I doubled up my usual amitrip' dose and knocked myself out. It really helped.Work?
WELL, the webcomic has been on another mini hiatus thanks to my consistent breaks of illness. I have the pages planned out, to finish this chapter off and a cover for the next chapter inked and waiting, as well as some character sheet sketches done. But I just need to get my hand back to working and this flare up to subside.Webcomic Link so CLICKY CLICKY

Its getting sunnier, thank god. I can't wait for it to clear up more, then I can start spending time outside, trying to restock on my vitamin D which I seem to be deficient in
