Lori has Lupus.
Anyway, I need to have gastric bypass surgery. Medicare won't pay it all and I can't have the surgery until I pay at least $2500.00. I put the fund raising amount at $3,000.00 even though it will be more.
But that amount will get me into surgery.
If you can help, even $5 or $10 adds up, please see the full story at gofund.me/LoriLife.
Whether you can help or not I ask you to please read this article. It will help you understand people with lupus and other chronic incurable diseases. It will take just a couple of minutes to read.
Thanks for reading this and I wish you well. Tak

2015-194 EvensongMy friend Rebecca Michelle TheEmptyChest asked if I were to write the story of my life, what I would title it. The title I was thinking of was 'Holding onto Hope' or something along those lines. But 'Evensong' would work well, too, or perhaps better.

I could never do this the justice it deserves compared to the original song, but it needed to be done.
For those who haven't yet read: My housemate killed himself. I didn't expect it to hit me that hard, but I've been falling apart since. Things have been really bad these last few weeks. I've also just had to go to the Police and change my number due to harassment from someone I can't avoid in person, and am facing consequences for the way I reacted during a breakdown when they would not stop phoning and texting me. On top of that, I've been told that I am too unstable for the therapy that I have been waiting months to get, and all my support is dropping out. I'm somehow supposed to "get better" without help, to be able to get the help to get better. Makes so much sense, doesn't it? There are other things as well, but I cannot put them up publicly on here.
People keep telling me I'm resilient and will make it through. I am just getting more and more unwell. Things hit breaking point then proceeded to get worse, and I really don't know how I can possibly pull out of this. I never get time to recover between things any more; with that I think I could make it, but I'm not that lucky. To those who are still supporting me; thank you, it means so much to know people care.
I am 22 year old artist, writer, composer, singer-songwriter and jewellery maker.
I don’t really have one particular area of interest yet; I just enjoy creating and will give anything new a shot

I do not watch-for-watch or fav-for-fav, so please do not ask me and then get offended when I say no.
Even if I do not thank you for favourites (I generally don't thank my watchers because I can't keep up with the numbers), I do really appreciate all of them!
I do not generally participate in "tagged" journals.
WARNING: If your favourites are full of naked women instead of art, especially if you do not have any deviations of your own, then I will most likely block you. This is an art site, not a porn site. My work carries a message, or maybe a little fun. Not jack-off material for some random stranger on the internet. And no, I will not send you nudes: Stop asking.
However, if you appreciate my work because it is art, then I am very grateful! Feel free to leave any comments and tips that you wish
