Some updates, because I have been quiet lately! I'm sorry this journal didn't come sooner.
• Mental Health Update •
Long story short, FINALLY saw a doctor and was prescribed antidepressants, I've been on them for two weeks now. Those combined with therapy and a change in sleep schedule/exercise habits seem to be doing me some good. Fingers crossed that things will start to change for the better, for good. Already I'm finding that tasks which seemed daunting and overwhelming before now feel like something I can tackle... which is good news for me artwise, to say the least.
• Commissions Update •
I've contacted all of you personally about my status! Thank you all for being so patient as I continue to work through other problems that have been affecting my work. There are just a few commissions left in the current queue; I hope to finish them by the 14th, but I also want to avoid overworking myself too (part of the problem in the first place, as I would get burnt out on consecutive 12-hour days). I'm trying out a 5-6 hour day (12p–5p, give or take), which I hope will be more efficient than cramming in work and then losing time due to stress.
My waitlist is also full! There are four people on it so far, which I figure is quite enough especially considering the ensuing mess from taking an unlimited queue. (Never again. Lesson learned.) If anyone is waiting to commission me or was thinking about doing it in the future, it will open back up once the current queue is DONE and these 4 potential commissions are started!
