This seems to be habit now, updating after 5-6 months.
Still nothing new regarding art work. I've contemplated things, I've messed around in Photoshop. But truth be told, sometimes I'm too depressed to do anything at all but sit and watch Youtube videos all day and read. Even my gaming has taken a hit, and that's always been a very predominant hobby of mine. Sometimes I wonder if I will ever be able to get back my motivation to do any art.
Aside from that depressing news, so far this year isn't turning out too bad. For all who don't know, I do have a few mental health problems (the specifics I don't want to get into on a public forum). I was diagnosed by a psychologist as part of a mental evaluation in both 2001 and 2008 (on top of other medical records). Last month, I finally won my disability court case after a 2 year battle. The judge actually made a bench decision in my favor while I was at court which my lawyer said was actually not common (or maybe just wasn't common for him, I really don't know). Usually you get the decision by mail. This has made me so happy because now I can finally afford to get proper treatment. Utah is not the best when it comes to affordable mental health care by far, and so far we have not had an insurance through my husband's work that would cover it. It's been pretty tough.
Gaming-wise, I've been somewhat playing FFXIV: ARR, but not as much as usual. I actually started beta testing The Elder Scrolls Online when they have the weekend events, which is now my 40th MMO to beta test since I began in 2003. It isn't too bad... although I have complaints about it because I'm an extreme lore freak and there are conflicts that I don't agree with. But it isn't the worst I have played. I actually preordered it. I think this is where I run and hide since I know it's not gotten the best reviews by far, but some part of me enjoyed it.
I hope you all are doing well. Keep on keeping on with your amazing art! <3
