My fun sick life

If you get to know me face to face or online, you can't see it, but I have really challenging health. It's something that effects to my every decision. From everyday life, to what kind of form of art I'm doing. Part of my writing history is a book about this all, that I was writing couple years ago. For view reasons it staid in my "bedside table".  Well, the modern way on my computer. I really like to hand write, it's like art it's own, but for big projects, computer is easier.

With all my writings, the motive is desire to help. Was it about art, or now about things related to health, I want to share, what I've found out to make things easier.  I'm almost felt from cliff so many times, when I've been looking help and ways to do better in my situation. There isn't a travel guide to help you. No one wants to tell you the easier  ways. You need to think, to what all you need to prepare for. What skills and supplies you are going to need. This is very difficult without experimented coach. In the worst case, we are speaking about you mental, physical, and financial lost, that can be permanent or so hard to fix , that you can't do it yourself. I wanted to write to others, who are living this weird life with illness or disability and tell, how I've fight for my rights and benefits and what kind of help I've found. Also I've found very odd and comic  things about healtcare and myself. I wish that my fight wasn't meaningless, and as many then possible, could find ways to do things easier. I hope to give the feeling, ”Wow! This is exactly what I've been looking and no one knew how to help me or they gave wrong advise.”

This isn't story about being sick. Or whine about ignorance. More like comic situations in weird places.  I'm telling things that should be helpful, where ever you live, what year it is or what ever your problem is! I also want to help others to understand what this life can be. But mostly to tell that your life isn't necessarily less, even you can't do everything. If you are old reader, don't worry the focus will still be in all cute and creative. Well, my whole life with this is creative! In Twitter @FromMadeByMeri


  1. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright
    violation? My blog has a lot of exclusive content
    I've either authored myself or outsourced but
    it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without
    my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help
    stop content from being stolen? I'd genuinely
    appreciate it.

  2. That was something that made me to wait before starting this project. It has multiple accpects on it. One is actual plagorism, that is illegal. Like someone publishing your photo and telling it's there own. That is something to speak with lawyer. Then it's the most common thing nowadays, that someone uses your photos, not blaming those to them, but not also giving the credit to you. If it really bothers you, then contact to writer or the provider/managment of the online page. Big part of it is that they don't have knowledge about legislation. Third is using your work/ideas as base of their own that is legal if they aren't doing actual copies.

    I haven't had any problems yet, but I'm accepting the second and third thing as part of these days. With first scenario it's really about how serious it is and how much effort you are ready to do for it.

  3. Hey there! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a group of volunteers
    and starting a new project in a community in the same niche.
    Your blog provided us valuable information to work on. You have done a marvellous job!

  4. Keep up the superb piece of work, I read few content
    on this internet site and I believe that your web blog is rattling interesting and
    has got lots of wonderful information.

  5. Thanks very interesting blog!

Working with a giant project

I've been busy and it's easy to see from, how often I've been writing lately. Anyways in beginning I promised for myself, that keeping the blog isn't going to be something, that I let to stress myself. I'm using all my time and energy for the work, what I'm doing right now. I don't want to tell more about it now, but for this post's sake, I need to tell, that I'm working with Photoshop and using hundreds of hours for this.

The biggest challenge for me is, that I don't remember to take a breaks. Somehow drawing with computer, doesn't feel same way working, then sewing or painting. I easily forget to drink or eat. Suddenly I notice,  that I've been drawing four hours and haven't moved at all. In long run, this is really stupid and I'm trying to focus specifically to this. Currently I'm "watching" Netflix while working. More like I have it open and I'm listening and time to time looking what is happening. My idea f…

Giving second change for my markers and buying new ones

I've been really into Inktober. Even more then I waited to be. I waited to have more problems with keeping this daily schedule, but surprisingly, only one day was hard to get anything done. I've been focusing to drawing so much and haven't really felt like writing. I think it's partly because, I've just been drawing and not doing that much anything else.

I've used almost completely my original markers. I had my first Sharpies ever and they used to be enough for me. Just because I didn't used to draw with them. I basically used those just for writing. They are okay and good for practicing, but now I'm needing more and I'm waiting from mail, my new Winston&Newton's Promarkers. I read and watched Youtube videos about, what would be the best for me. Copics are known to be the best, but the price is just way too much. I trust to Winston&Newton as brand, based of their other products, like paints. Also some artists actually prefer them, over C…

Art and feelings - hospital art

If you are saying that art doesn't wake any kind of feelings in you, you need to stop at next time and actually give a second to look at it. Art can be powerful tool and mood effective. I'm talking now specially about art in hospitals and other public places. In this context, art can be anything from actual painting or photography, to color of walls or pattern of ceiling. I'm always focused the patterns of air conditioner's grids. It sounds so small detail, but every hospital room has it and after laying somewhere hours, you'll start to notice details on roof.

I've got my dear share of hospital time. Time in waiting rooms, doctors offices, examination rooms, wards... There is usually one common thing. Something on walls, that is meant to make place to look nicer, warmer, more comfortable... Sometimes even more home like. It can be anything from doctor's kid's or kid patients drawings to abstract professional photographer's ink test like photos. Eith…
