Hello my darlings~~

To those who were not aware, I have been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, which is an autoimmune degenerative disease where my immune system decides to attack my joints. First, it started in my hands and now it has progressed to my feet. I started treatment, which is an immuno-suppressant -- in other words, chemotherapy.

Chemotherapy is...it's poison. I mean there's no other way to describe the way it makes you feel. The closest I can describe it is getting the flu, but it's the only thing I've experienced which is close enough. Needless to say there's some side effects I've been feeling: nausea, vomiting, hair loss (yes, I cut all of it off), fatigue, and general depression. 

The loss of energy is probably the worst of it, but I'm taking vitamins and making a considerable effort to get my butt up and get moving every day.

I'm also switching back to first shift, so my schedule will permit me more time for shoots and replying to comments. Typing is much easier these days. My treatment sucks total balls, but it's truly effective and helpful for the pain/inflammation.

Now, I'm in my own place --- Read again --- LIZZIE HAS HER OWN APARTMENT!

So models who want to come shoot with me, select photographers who want to do a location shoot, and general friends who want to visit, you are now able to contact me about meeting up! I'm still looking at getting an industrial studio space downtown, but I would be sharing with other artists so we have to wait on that for now.

Otherwise, be patient with me, as you always have been -- I'll be here. I'll be watching and hopefully commenting on some pieces that have caught my eye. In the meantime, let me share a few new favorites!

Happy Belated Birthday!!!!:iconhappybirthdaysignplz::iconbirthdaycakeplz::iconbouquetplz::party::airborne::dance::boogie:

Get well soon dear. Sounds like that disease is a real hindrance to your Life right now but I admire your tenacity--you aren't allowing it to get you down or make excuses and STILL keep pushing. I agree that chemo SUCKS and don't agree that this is the only treatment out there, that's bullshit. Doctors use it only to make money off of it because of how expensive it is. This is EXACTLY why I'm going to the Amazon and learning to be a healer/Shaman--to help people like you who need it.

Stay close and available my friend, I'll keep you in my prayers Miss Lizzie. :iconcuddleplz:

For on this day, a true cause celebre' occurred - the birth of a beautiful woman, body and soul.  'Tis an anniversary worthy of joy and appreciation, and a sadness that hugs cannot be transmitted via internets.
