In terms of the past couple of weeks, a lot has happened too!
Christmas was pretty nice, and my whole family was able to gather on that Saturday for a slightly late Christmas party. I got pretty worn out from all the excitement, older siblings visiting almost constantly throughout that week, etc. New Year's was interesting, but I still have to get used to the new... year... of course. xD I completely messed up a work form I had to sign when I was trying to write the date... 'Nuff said. Had to get white-out and redo it.
In other, personal news... My mom's been helping search around for any affordable, local therapists for a good couple of months. It's been a frustrating wait to a point where I thought we wouldn't find anyone to help me at all, that I'd be stuck with issues I can't figure out how to fix no matter what I do. However, this week she's been trying to keep contact with a couple of therapists who could help me with two things - the second thing being an unexpected bonus! O-o So, I might
be a bit more busy soon if I actively go to two therapists until I'm much better, and able to manage anxieties/stress better on my own. As for the "bonus" therapy, there's an audiologist nearby who specializes in hearing sensitivities and disorders. This means I could get help for my own hearing sensitivities and likely disorder: misophonia. Though I haven't been able to get diagnosed with it, mainly because it's so difficult to diagnose to begin with, everything I've researched on it leaves me about 90% certain it's what I have. And yeah, I researched it deeply to the best of my ability, considering the obscure resources and research out there, so I'm fairly confident I know a good lot about it. This research started about 2 or 3 years ago when it caught my interest, so yeah! c:
Summing it up, I'll be getting help for things that have been hard for me to control, or things I left be for so long that they took control of me. Mind over matter, things like that, and I want to try experimenting with regular therapy excluding any medicine. I do not want to rely on or depend on medication for the rest of my life, so I'm determined to use my mind to fight these issues given I receive proper therapy and "training" for it. :3
In less personal news, I think, I started up a RedBubble ( a good site for artists, which I recommend to you guys if you'd like to check it out! ) during the holidays. I sell my art as a selection of products provided by the business, under my own decisions.
I'm still working on getting more art onto there to sell, and it takes a while considering the recommended file sizes are enormous
compared to what I usually draw. But I'll be updating as much as I can! If I can earn any money from it, it'll be side money to keep in my savings, and could serve as "passive support," as I'll call it, while I'm working in another job and hoping to move onto my next ( dream ) career sometime in the future. Even if you guys can't buy anything ( completely understandable ), you can still check out my current stock and/or start up your own little online market! www.redbubble.com/people/wolfk…
