Hey everyone! I wanted to let you know that my arm is healing! I am able to draw again!
I hope to post some new art on here in the future!
I'm working through some ups and downs emotionally from suddenly being able to draw again.
It's weird how painfully massaging my tendon twice a day turned out to be the solution. I'm really glad I got to see an orthopedic surgeon and find out what was wrong with my arm, just wish I got to see the guy sooner!
He told me I have a rather rare condition called "Angiofibrodysplasia" that I still can't find much info on. BUT he explained it means my tendons weren't acting like tendons because they were ossifying. Basically they were hard and not flexible so I had to break them apart with massaging to let scar tissue form.
It seems to be working!
I am super glad still to know that it wasn't my fault that my arm was messed up. I think I might have said all this before but I was really really REALLY down on myself for being an idiot that didn't know how to use her own arm without damaging it. That kinda thought can run you into the ground.
BUT the massaging has been working! The last week I have been working on some comic inking samples to put in a portfolio. I can eat with my arm again! I can draw with it again! I can type!
I've had to massage the tendon in my Left arm as well because it was affecting that one too, which the doctor warned me would be likely.
Thank you everyone for being supportive!
I'm gonna get back on this horse. I'm gonna make comics again and art again and keep writing.
