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!

Dear Sweet Lizzie. I was not aware that this was as serious as you describe. So  sorry. Wish I could kiss it and make it all better. But we both know it would probably only be short lived.
Congrats on your new place. Are still in the same general area? I would so love to come and shoot with you and, if your willing, play model for you.
I'll await your reply to my note. Take care of yourself and keep us posted.
:hug: :heart: :kiss:

Congratulations on getting your own place! I admire your strength now more than ever. I recently found out I am diabetic, but that's peanuts compared to chemo. I'm so glad to see you updating again! :hug: :kiss: :love:
