2017 has been off to a terrible start for me so far.
After getting the flu, a cold and now a sudden spike in my lactose intolerance (literally one right after the other), and now my cat probably has diabetes and I'm taking him to the vet tomorrow. And on top of everything, I still have to keep up with school.
I'm just not having a good time, honestly. Last couple days have been extra rough, cause, turns out almost every single one of my meals contains some form of dairy. Which means for like 80% of the day I've been laying in bed in pain, waiting for my stomach to deal with it.
And as stupid as it sounds, I don't know how to cope with it. They literally don't sell any dairy "replacement" products here, aside from almond milk (which is way too expensive for us), just cutting dairy out would leave me with very plain meals which is honestly just miserable to me. And figuring out meals that don't have to include dairy would be a lot on my families wallet, which already is under a lot of strain from the vet. Tomorrow I'm expecting to pay a good 100 euros at least for the analysis work that my cat needs.. and idk.. I wish I could just rough it out, but this pain is one of the most immobilizing ones I have had to deal with yet. I simply can't afford spending extra 4 hours per meal every day in bed, just because I don't want to be miserable from the food I eat.
So yeah, life is not good right now.
shimthecat I'm working on your painting, though progress is slow. I think the total recording time could be around 5 hours now, which honestly doesn't sound like a lot when put together like that, but considering I can't even manage to work for an hour every day it's... coming along... hopefully this week I'll be done, but we will have to see how much my body allows me.
lichenfeather right next on my list. I will probably start with the minis since those take significantly less time to complete.
So yeah, here's to hoping this year stops killing me for once and lets me do anything at all.
