About Myself

I wanted to let everyone know that I am taking a very long time to complete commissions and trades. It's also very possible I have let some people fall through the cracks so I don't mind having a reminder here and there if you haven't heard from me lately! I just don't want to come here and find out someone's upset with me because I do admit, I have been slower than the usual and have gone through a lot recently...which is yet another reason to post here because I want all women to be aware of this (and boyfriends/fiances/husbands too) Rather than bog the LJ, here's a link to said issues: http://watergazerwolf.deviantart.com/journal/9678848/
Again, if I owe you and you have not heard from me, email me again. I am going through a slew of email right now but some may have been wrongfully deleted or lost or whatever. also, I owe people art supplies I have been giving away, and I will sort through those by next week...but I am missing the artists Anklebones who requested turtkey feathers. Are you out there?

Your art is too beatiful for you to be posted about in here. Take as much time as you should need. *snugs*

I hope you make it ok....

Oh man.. I didn't know all that happened to you.

I'm glad you're 'ok' now though.

Though, with what you've been through, I doubt you need to post about yourself in artist's beware.. this is more a community for warning about flakey artists, commissioners, etc.
Not people who weren't able to make deadlines due to sudden near-death.

But, it was a nice thing to do, and I hope that no more clots form, ever. Scary stuff, that. Be well!

I hope no more form either...I am having some pains in my legs I don't know if I should ignore or not. The doctor didn't say anything about them. still waiting on a blood test and in the meantime trying not to think I could be back in the ER again.

Also, I posted here because I did get a complaint or two about my slowness from book clients, and just didn't want it to spill over into any anthro commissioners I had still waiting. Plus, I want to get the word out about this med. in any way possible and prevent other women from having the same problem...at least to be aware of what's happening, since I was not.

Just wanted to note that Ortho-Evra isn't necessarily dangerous to everybody. I used it for several years without problem (though now I'm on testosterone as I should be, thank Gaia.) It does, however, suck how dangerous it is for those who are vulnerable. So much we don't know about how the body and brain work, and yet we still insist on trying to tinker with it. Oh well; not many other options, are there? May your recovery be swift and uncomplicated.

Yeah, I've had two friends who have been on it for well over a year and it worked fine for them. I've been on it for about four months now and only problem so far has been waiting for my period to get into a cycle (I came onto it while I was finishing the end of my needle).

So sorry it hurt you though, Watergazer. :/ Good luck. I hope something fixes up in your body so you -can- take those pills.

I can never take any hormones again, the doctors were adament about that. Not even when I'm 50 and have a change of life. I'm hoping I'll not be on blood thinners for years also. It's scary, and like I said before is just cropping up to affect women suddenly. In one case I read about a 15 year old girl, she just dropped dead from blood clots in the lungs..no warning at all. I hope you and your friends truly do get off this medication regardless of how well it has treated you the past few years (I've been on it for years too, but see), because your long-term health is not worth risking for convieniance in not taking the pill everyday. But don't just take my word for it...look it up. There's website after website springing up telling women that no matter how well it is working to just take those patches off. I hope they remove this from the market entirely so nobody will have happen to them what happened to me.

The danger doesn't make itself apparent though...that's the problem. You won't know until you get affected. Who's to say who is or not vulnerable? I mean, my doctor never performed any tests before he prescibed this to me and I don't know of others who had tests done before getting on it. Can you test for vulnerability? There were no clots in my history and I was an ideal candidate to be on it since I also do not smoke and have not had surgeries. It's just scary what I'm finding out about others with the same outlook who have had strokes and other serious side effects. I'm glad you're off it now though.

It seems a lot of for-women-only drugs/etc arent tested very well.
Im glad you are okay. ;__; (This is why i never want to go on anything like any of that D:)

That was an issue some people are talking about now. Was the drug pushed to fast? Were doctors told to prescribe it over the pill? Why weren't doctors told of the increased estrogen levels until 2005? etc. And why the hell, in the face of over 20 deaths, doesn't the drug company pull this off the market at least to do more testing?

Lemme know if anyone gives you shit over being delayed because of that, I'll eat them alive, ktnx.

So far I've only had a couple complaints from book-related clients. I just didn't want it to spread so that's why I posted here.

Anklebones has a personal website along with her accomplice in crime Wormwood. (the_wormwood on LJ) I'm not sure if goblinfeathers.com has an email of hers or anything.

:) Of course if you knew about Goblin Feathers, then I wasn't any help at all.

It's good to see you're still with us today! Man, the doctors want to put me on the patch too, but it seems I'll be more happy to reconsider the pill.

Actually that's very helpful! Thanks! Also, yes take the pill instead. There are far too many drawbacks to the patch besides the fatal ones. It's really amazing what it's doing and I just wish I was informed sooner because I would have gotten off it so fast.

There isn't a need to post this here. :) Your personal life should ALWAYS come before your art, especially when your in dire straights.

I'm glad your feeling better, and definetly that your still alive, and I think your commissioners will understand. *hugs*
