:bulletblue: ItDoesNotHaveMe is an awareness group on deviantART started by opioid after unexpected but incredibly positive feedback for her Lyme Disease article on dA's editorial news. It is a place where artists coping with illness--either physical or mental, their own or a loved one's--can seek out a headquarters for awareness and expression.

:bulletblue: ItDoesNotHaveMe is based on a kind of positivity that can be brought about by a single catharsis: the arts. Joining the group only requires adding it to your devwatch, and adding work requires merely sending a note and a link. The group's "favourites gallery" acts as its member gallery, showcasing art that artist-members have specifically identified as dealing with the pain and frustrations of less than perfect health.

Life, Health and Art Updates

Sat Nov 21, 2015, 4:19 PM
I've had to delay my trip back to my grandparents. The night before I was going to fly back, I was eating out with my partner and suddenly started having horrible pains in my lower stomach. I took my Hyoscyamine and went to the restroom thinking it must have been just another attack, but something felt off. Normal attacks are excruciatingly painful, but the type of pain felt different; it was more of a sharp, stabbing pain.

I kept switching from feeling hot to freezing and the pain became so intense that I could no longer sit myself up and ended up collapsed on the floor of a public restroom. Not my finest moment.

I lost track of time, but it may have been almost an hour that I was stuck in there. In my rush I made the mistake of not bringing my purse and cellphone with me, so I had no way of contacting my partner to tell them what was going on and the waiter kept bugging them, so they ended up having to pay the bill when it was supposed to be my treat. I paid them back but I felt terrible that I'd left them there. They were about to send someone in to check on me.

I'm getting so tired of this. I have a diagnosis, I'm being treated, but it's obviously not working. I'm really starting to suspect what others have said for a while now, that Irritable Bowel is just a vague blanket term doctors use for 'There's something wrong with your stomach area, but we can't figure out what, so we'll just throw whatever at it and good luck'.

The intense part had ended but I was left feeling like I had a nasty stomach bug for the rest of the night. I didn't want to risk traveling the next day, so I called my grandmother to let her know what had happened and that I was canceling my flight. I'm going to try again next Monday if I can because I want to spend the holidays with them this year. I really want to see how Grandpa is doing after the surgery, I have relatives from Japan that will be visiting and I really don't know when I'll be able to see them again.

I'm really tired of this interfering with my life. I just want to be able to go out, shop, eat and do other everyday things like a normal person and not have to worry if a restroom is within immediate reach or whether whatever unfortunate person I happen to be with will have to wait around for forty minutes before I can walk again.

In happy news, I don't know if I've mentioned this, but I got two guinea pigs a few months ago. This is my first female pair and they're just lovely, sweet little things. Luna and Patches. Hopefully I can get a decent picture of them to show you guys before I go.

I've also been spending a great deal of time on an awesome game my friend GlitterElixir introduced me to called Rune Factory 4. It's been around for a while, but as with many things, I'm late to hear about/get into it. I recommend it if you haven't played it yet, though. For a handheld game it's insanely involved and has saved me a lot of boredom for the past few months. I even got a second copy for my partner, although their thing right now is Mario Maker. They've made some fun levels, including ones themed after Attack on Titan, Slenderman and many more. You can check them out for yourself here:… They're trying to earn their fifth medal right now, so if any of you have Mario Maker and like their levels, it would help out immensely if you could star them. This game has some pretty ridiculous achievements as far as the medal system goes (5,000 stars? Really?) so they need all the help they can get.

I have two main pictures in the works right now; a trade with my friend and a Steven Universe one. I know it doesn't sound like much, but I'm actually kind of happy with myself after slowing down so much for so long. It feels good to be getting things done that aren't just sketches, but actual inked and colored pieces that will hopefully add a little oomph to the more recent section of my gallery.  

That's about it for now. I hope you all have a safe and fun holiday season. :heart:

:damphyr: You can call me Binny. You may recognize me from my time on the CR Team here on dA, taking care of the Anthro Gallery with Katmomma and Pixel-Spotlight.

:damphyr: I'm an artist of no particular genre. I do a lot of fantasy, sci-fi, fan art and anthro themed work, with other odds and ends to be found in between. Please note that you must be logged in to view my gallery.

:damphyr: I love animals, the arts, rainy days and a good cup of tea.
