For a time, I will be moving back in with my parents.
For you who are interested solely in my artwork, this is why I have been mildly inactive--things are hella hectic. First I went on a trip out of state, then I got back, then I had to move out of my aunt's and into my grandma's, and now the plans for getting back keep changing so I never know when I'm leaving, but I'm pretty sure it's this weekend.
I am working on several art projects currently, mostly things for friends. I am also doing Resonance Bang, which is a Soul Eater fanfiction-writing challenge, this year, both as an author and as an artist. You guys will definitely see that stuff when it's done. I will do my own illustrations and, of course, post a link to the fanfic when it's complete. Get hype!
For those more concerned about my wellbeing, you may read on. I can already tell going back is going to be hard on me, but I need to get tested for dyscalculia so I can know what's wrong and get on with my life and apparently I can only do that in my home state (which is bull, but I want to visit a friend back home anyway). It's not for long, only a month and a half or so.
I was finally clinically diagnosed with depression/anxiety while I was away, and am finally being medicated for it, thank God. I have a phone, so my parents can't cut me off from society by denying me internet access, telephone usage, and other "privileges" that involve leaving the house and speaking to human beings about how screwed up my situation is. My parents also agreed to get counseling and better themselves as parents, too, so maybe I won't even have to worry about it ever again.
Not looking forward to not being able to go anywhere during the day again. But I might be able to get my driver's license while I'm there.
I think I've become more confident in myself and I hope that continues. My mom, who has been visiting the past several weeks in preparation to take me home, has taken to reminding me about positive attributes I have at random times during the day. It's nice and I think it helps. The lows still hit me hard sometimes, but I'm really starting to feel loved.
