1493 Bravery.


This page has been one of those ones that just refuses to save easily. It’s a real pain because it just sucks up time trying to figure out why it won’t work right. Thankfully it finally took.

Apparently my trip didn’t totally agree with me. My bad foot has been swollen and it doesn’t get better unless I lay down, or raise it up. That wouldn’t be so much of a problem if it was my right foot, because I could raise it up and draw at the same time. Since it’s not I only get a little relief from it when I go to bed. I knew I was pushing things by making that little excursion, but dared to hope I had healed enough for it not to be a problem. I walked all over on it, at one point my hip went out, which might be what is causing the swelling to flare up. I’ve avoided as much salt as what food we have allows and it’s not backing off as much as it usually does. It doesn’t appear infected at least. Possibly the activity cause some of the less hearty blood vessels to give out. I’m just taking a guess. My heel, which is in much better shape than before I started doing the salt soaks, cracked. I expect from all the walking. It was also a little too hot now and then, so maybe that played a part. We went into the trip without much of a plan. I probably should have rented a room, or something, where I could have controlled the environment a bit more. I could take another pill that makes me pee more, but it’s already a mess trying to guess how much water I need from hour to hour. All signs point to me being dehydrated, but the foot stays swollen.

I quit taking all my allergy medicines. They cause such terrible insomnia its either that or I stop sleeping. It takes days for Flonase to start working properly, so by the time I’m getting relief ive stopped sleeping, which defeats the purpose of the medicine. The nasal rinse I use seems to be keeping the worst allergies at bay, but it’s not perfect either. I still have occasional spells of asthma like symptoms. Apparently the new drug I quit using at xmas was an asthma one, but the bad reaction I had when that and the anti depressant were introduced together makes me hesitant to try it again. It basically ruins me for a day, so I hate to chance losing one when I’m already so far behind.

Speaking of being behind, I’ll be doing the patreon story update in the middle of this next week or the week after. The sketches are also slowly being whittled away at. Every time I get a little bit closer to caught up something fucks me over, so please forgive me. I am trying to keep up.
