I'm in my 30's from Melbourne, Aus.
Happily married with a furbaby.

I've always loved to write & play around with graphics for as long as I can remember. The writing going back to my early teens in HS where it was one of the few things I didn't really stink at lol

I also love to look around at what other people make/write as well.

Thought it was about time to write a journal entry finally :)
I've had a few people note me, asking why it's so far in between me posting so just going to explain a little bit why.

About 2 & a half years ago, I started having some medical issues which my doctor monitored & ended up sending me to a specialist for. I was tired all the time, sick on & off etc... generally feeling pretty crappy really. Insomnia one night, so fatigued the next I'd sleep for well over what used to be my usual 8-9 hours. Originally, they thought I had Graves Disease but further tests proved that I went in the opposite direction & I was diagnosed with Hashimotos Disease.

At first, only monitoring my thyroid was enough but in the last year, it's started attacking more of my body, more specifically my joints & muscles. I had some days or weeks where I could hardly move & what was worrying me more was that I was getting a lot of chest pain, so much I ended up at the ER more than once but further tests showed it wasn't heart related. They put it down to arthritis symptoms (I was currently under a rheumatologist at the time seeing both rheumatoid arthritis & polymyalgia run in my family). After 2 months, ultrasounds, blood work, xrays & an MRI that came back clear, almost 2 weeks ago I was finally placed in the care of a GP specialist.

After a ton more blood work, it turns out that the hashimotos is attacking my body much more than they thought. I've had some of my meds changed, a new one added & I'm also currently deficiant in vitamin B so I'm having injections. The hope is that over the next few months, they can stabalise me enough again that some of the aches & pains as well as my body attacking the muscles will lessen. As anyone else who suffers from this disease will tell you, some days it makes it hard for them to control it when you're own body is attacking itself.

So sometimes I find it hard to open up my graphics program & feel well enough to have a go at anything.
I'm hoping that with time, I'll be moving around a bit better & able to do that, write etc... all the things that I've found it hard to do the last year.

Hugs
