but if i have to take that thing for 2x in a row
It's small & #insidious.
It starts with "will I ever get better?" & it can escalate into, "Why do I try?" depending how long I am on it.
I only need it sporadically, but yeah.
Changed my world to know that was a possibility.
Now I can say after using it..."Is this thought real?"
For those who would suggest other methods, this one is the best one i have for now.
(In a few years, maybe something that works better will come along or they might know more about why #EhlersDanlos happens)
In the mean time I wanted you to know, in case this happens to you too.
Right now, notice where your head is in space. Is it out forward over your chest, or is it more directly up and over your shoulders?
If not,then,as if someone pulled a thread from the top of your skullcap straight up...pullyour head up-
-and put your head back direct over your shoulders.
Doing this a little each day will loosen your back muscles & arm muscles a bit. (might even help with pain)
I bet you're nearsighted & put your head down to the screen when you read, just like me.
Now, about those arms-
- This is a noticing piece.
I hold my pencil and mouse tight. Death grip. Been working on loosening for years.
I rest by not using either.
Turns out, touch screening a phone, uses the same death poke, and the arm up in the same tightly bent position.
Starts here: Hello, It's Trish Malone, creator of #NKVSSP and slightly hurty -

And it's just struck me now, so bear with me.
My forearm, right at the elbow, is needles and fire. It happens. And Overuse is the #1 suspect. Turns out today though, overuse is actually #2.
#Procrastination is funny.
Am I doing it because I'm bored? nah.
Do I want to do something else? no.
Totally afraid of fucking up.
So we'll sit here until the deadline waiting for me to not fuckup?
(telling on myself, to give myself a kick up the backside)
Step 1, draw borders
Step 2, draw something that looks like it follows the action on the previous page.
Step 3, write a bad line. (All it has to be is plausible, not finished)
Step 4, make the next panel to follow the first.
