I thought a little pain was good for an artist’s understanding and balloon-like ego. To be better endowed, to feel a bit more human is exactly how we further our sight.
However, too much pain is a joy-killer; a stab that keeps probing.
In my neck, I have a disc that is herniated. It has decided to pinch a nerve both physically and mentally. Forcing my arm to seek a more painless position, I move it around constantly. In fact, my gestures would be a good backdrop and stand-in for a zombie army’s class picture.
The movements are exaggerated.
I cannot illustrate nor hold anything in my dominant hand for more than a few seconds. The feeling of electricity from the pinched nerve is painful and from my experiences so far, the feeling is more akin to a hammer probing up and down my arm.
If you missed my posts the last 2 weeks, this is the explanation. An MRI is being scheduled asap and then hopefully a consult with a spinal surgeon for a fix.
Meanwhile, I have everyone’s posts to “like” or “quickly comment” as a balm, to soothe my shrinking endowment.
