Journal Entry: Thu Aug 28, 2014, 2:00 PM
I haven't written a journal entry in such a long time, but recently I've been through quite a bit, so I thought I'd write a new journal and share a little. I don't normally talk much about my personal life here, but I think many things I've been through may have a big effect on my artistic life as well.
A little over a week ago I had some minor stomach cramps that grew increasingly worse. I've had no major health issues in years, so I just thought this would pass. Next thing I knew, it became so painful that I called an ambulance for myself, was taken to a local hospital emergency room, and admitted to the hospital for a week with a case of acute pancreatitis.
I'm not a big drinker, but I do drink a glass or two of wine a day, and I am also a smoker. The doctors attributed my condition mainly to drinking. I was kind of shocked. Well, I enjoy these things very much while fractalling every night, and now I'm not allowed to do them anymore. What a bummer!! I'm trying to take all this as a positive wake up call to start leading a healthier life, which I fully plan to do at this point, but I am truly concerned about how this will affect my artistic side. I guess I will have to wait and see.
So this is why I haven't posted anything in more than a week (The longest time since I joined DA years ago!), and probably won't post any new pieces until maybe next week at earliest. Right now I still have some recovery to go through.
Lastly, I wanted say thanks so much for all of your support and kind comments on my artwork! It really means a lot to me and I can't express how much I appreciate it! I'm hoping to be up and running again soon, and wondering what kind of fractals 'Aureliuscat 2.0' will be creating ... Lol.
All the best!!
