Hello my dear ones 💚
I'm just popping by to let you all know that I'm still around, and haven't been kidnapped by filthy orcs or nasty goblins 🙌🏻 I want to have a wee heart to heart, and explain why I've been a bit inactive from time to time.
As some of you know, I've been quite sick, and to be honest, it's been quite severe for a year now.
I've never had to struggle with my health like this in the past, I was always strong and healthy, but in just one year I've been constantly ill and close to loosing my life twice to sepsis/blood infection and other dangerous infections - This isn't me being dramatic. 🍂
Due to this, I've been feeling very fatigued and it's been difficult to maintain my life on social media, and quite impossible to work on my art - but I've tried. Almost too hard. To quote Tolkien “I feel thin, sort of stretched, like butter scraped over too much bread.”. It's quite hard for me to open up about weaknesses, and remove my armor, but I realize now that this doesn't weaken me - it's showing strength. 💪🏻⚔️🌿 After finally seeing my doctor (I am one of those silly creatures that neeeever seek help, except when nearly dying, lol #toosoon?) and having a bleep load of tests done, it turned out I'm extremely(!) deficient in several vitamins (especially vitamin D who's left my body without any defense). No wonder I've been feeling so depressed and "off". I'm now slowly recovering, feeling more like myself every day that goes by - finally 🍃 I just want to thank you all so much for the support, love, and for sticking by when I've been "afk" ❤❤❤ It has put a smile on my face trough it all.
Also, I would strongly advise you to do regular check ups and make sure your bodies are balanced and not experiencing any deficiencies. I wish I'd done that myself...
I know I will be more active on social media soon, and I'm very excited to be sharing more of my life, art and adventures with you all, my glorious army 😘 *big hugs and lots of love* 💚🍃
