FREE JOURNAL SKIN: Dango Tango by Crystal-Moore

I think the one thing I can mention is that it's hard to read the text with the background you've made. The bold is okay to read, but t...

Hey all, I hope everyone is doing well.

I wanted to explain what's going on, if anyone is curious as to why I've been so quiet and inactive here. There's really two things going on; my health and getting ready and looking for a job or volunteering.

The major thing that's impacting my life is an autoimmune disease that I've had for the better part of a decade; it's Psoriasis. It's when the immune system thinks there's an invasion where there is none, it freaks out and the body attacks itself for no reason. It manifests as lesions on the skin, and it covers about 60% of my body. I won't even go into the details and what happens to sufferers, but needless to say it gets in the way of sleep in a big way. I can barely get to sleep, and if I can, I don't sleep for long. And that's just one of the issues I have with it.
I've been working with doctors and skin drug trials, but nothing really. It's so frustrating.

Even though this is going on, my health is still better than what it was, and I've been devoting what time I do feel productive to looking up career/job/volunteering opportunities.

BUT.

I do want to get back into my art, so please be patient with me :heart: My brain has been brainstorming for things that I could make to get my art itch back, so please send me some good thoughts (if you believe in that sort of thing!)

Although I would usually bring this to a note I'd like others to know this as well.

I've been incredibly uninspired due to some severe personal health problems. I'm trying every single day to get back into it, so I'm trying my best.
