Just making this to say I'll be on another hiatus :^)
Really got no choice my wrist is fucked lol. I've had Carpal Tunnel for years and only actually attempted to treat it starting like a year or two ago. But I've had it for at least 8 years, so that's 6 years of doing nothing to treat it. I have a habit of ignoring pain and never bringing up my issues because I didn't want to burden anyone, and my depression makes me really not care about my own problems anyways. Really feeling the effects of it now lol. No matter what I do or how much I rest my wrists I can't go even 10 minutes without the pain. I've tried doing the stretches and shit but like I said I've ignored it for 6 years so nothing is really helping now. I even got some good quality wrist braces but in all honesty it did nothing. Helped stopped the pain for a little while but the pain would always come back. I even changed how I drew, I now use my whole arm to draw for the most part, but I have no choice but to use my wrist for details.
And as much as I love drawing it's just not worth it, I can't even get any commissions so I'm not even making money off my art. Think the only option left for me is to try and get surgery for it, but that costs at least 2k and I definitely don't have that lol. So yea it's probably gonna be a good while before I post shit again. I'm probably gonna continue doing little sketches and shit traditionally but even that hurts, which is frustrating, but this is my own fault so whatever.
