I have trained in many painting mediums but now work primarily in acrylic, watercolor, pen and ink ,and tempera.
I would love to hear from you! Thank you!
I have added some fims below for anyone interested in learning about ME/CFS (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis)
For far too many years this disease has been neglected leaving people with ME/CFS in a horrible state of Limbo. People not only suffer from the terrible illness, which utterly destroyslives, but are also left dealing with so much ignorance and misunderstanding by Medical Professionals, Friends, Family and the General Public. In the worst cases people with ME/CFS are completely abandoned. Many end up taking their own lives.Many are living in abject poverty. Many are suffering from abuse doto ignorance, and many more, become homeless. Now we have a similar state of affairs with the covid "Long-Haulers", and it must be addressed.
Too many people are struck down each year with this debilitaing and horribly misunderstood disease. How many more need to die from it, or as a consequence of feeling there is no way out, but suicide? I am posting this as I lost my very dear friend Mark last year. He took his own life, but it is my belief , the disease tookhim down. I have spoken to too many people suffering the ravishes of this disease. This disease causes multiple problems and additional ailments over time. I have heard many who have had cancer and state they prefer it to ME/CFS. The medical treatments were far better and there was far more compassion and understanding in their treatment. These are all things that often are missing for a person with ME/CFS.I have actually heard someone with stage 4cancer state that she cried with relief when she got her cancer diagnosis because there would actually be an end to the suffering she had lived with for so long as aperson with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. I have thought long and hard about posting these videos and making this statement, but I feel I must. If it helps one person to either learn about the illness, (or know that they are not alone), then I have said my peace. If you watch any of these movies, I thank you with all of my heart. If you are just interested in a general idea of what ME/CFS There is a diagram below It is overly simplified, but fairly decent in giving a generalized description of the illness. Note that it by no means describes all the symptoms and problems this illness can cause, but it is a far better 'quick overview' ,than most that I have seen.
