Ouch

I did a tiny bit of texture work tonight to try and record- so difficult when trying to avoid shadows falling across the sculpt and/or camera and with a phone that has no screw mount…- and my wrist audibly crunched. I think I managed to grab a video after that (I really did not want to listen out for it) so hopefully when this video finally uploads I’ll have a reasonable presentation of an actual part of sculpting that is actually “easy” because of time invested in to making a tool that allows for fast repetition but also some variation!

But er, I am definitely feeling the benefits of my infusion in joints that are so far undamaged but there is nothing for already damaged joints.

In case anyone has forgotten, my wrists are borked:

And that was several years ago already. The ends of both of my ulnars have moved further in to the middle of my wrists.

Bone doesn’t disappear like that without a nasty cause.

I am however one of the lucky few who have this many views of their wrist before and after damage. The first xray was within a month of my trigger event so I technically had RA but it hadn’t caused erosion.

Still can’t get over that one bone that has eroded to a pea shape from being shaped like a banana. That is some serious erosion. Yet my results only suggested a mild joint space loss. Yeah because the freaking bone has gone! And the end of my radii have eroded too!

Actually I need to email my specialist to let him know about the anaemia situation. He may want me to have the injections even though they caused so much tissue damage last time. Muscle degradation in that instance. And two years of pain. Okay maybe not. Maybe I’ll just have to keep up with the Floravital even though it’s about 20 times the cost… more I think. Sigh.

 

Anyone indertest in 24kg of PET?

Just worked out what a “roll” of sequin material actually is.. it’s not quite as advertised! Not going by photos.. in otherwords do you know how ridiculously overengineered my Elsa gown will wind up being?

I am even looking at making my own sheeting from urethane. Yeah.. it’s a bit softer than I expected but it possibly could be screen printed… coo.. omg! yes, yes it could! But it would be flexible however my mind went immediately to Dame Vaako… that mesh is definitely screen printed in some way because you can see how the texture pattern has slid a bit…. Which you see a lot in screen printing.

Meanwhile I am also scoffing all the B12 and all the iron as yes. RA is to blame for the fatigue, again. And no we are not having injections as they didn’t actually raise my stores much last time. And I now have deep pits in my hips from them.

just that, pain. also fatigued. seized up but very unstable joints. and not much choice in treatment.

So tired…

Posting from my desktop as my WP app seems to not be happy. The camera icon can’t be clicked in any orientation of the screen except sometimes vertically but generally I wind up scrolling or clicking another ico next to it. It was always tricky but with…

Health update

I’m still bobbing like a cork on the fatigue tide, but I think… I think I’m having some resolution to the ongoing sinus thing. As suspected after almost a year it has “burned out” and while I still have inflammation I don’t have signs of infection. So…

shopping blues

Currently in Henderson. Grr. Spotlight didn’t have the interfacing I wanted (woven cotton with solid glue dots on the back) and the DML can’t do my TB gold test. Er.. not that it’s likely I have TB 😉 It’s a necessary test before TNF therapy.

Spotlight does have hair canvas though. I don’t know if I have much left but I could probably use it for a proper bustle.

Massive headache too so a short pause before heading back to the train.
