My fun sick life - what people are afraid to ask

People are often afraid to ask certain things. On general level with everyone, but even more if you are different in anyways. Sometimes it goes to level, where they are nervous even to talk with you. It's easier just walk past over. Most kids doesn't have that scare in them. They are naturally curios and aren't worrying, what the person might think about them after asking something. It's more like social norm, how we learn to act. One time I was at town and about 3-4 years old girl came to me, put her hand for my leg and tried to climb to my lap. His father was view steps away and was terrified. He pick her up and told to her, that she shouldn't bother me. He didn't look me at all or said anything. He just took her off and walked away. What I was thinking when she came to me was, how cute she and the situation was. I didn't mind. Only thing about that situation that I didn't liked, was the fathers behavior. Of course there is things to consider in situation like that. Like talking to strange and the fact that the person might have bad pain etc. The point of the story is that we shouldn't lose the way to see others like kids. Just as person, not all those things how we are different.

I generally like, when people ask, what is on there mind. For me anything isn't too personal. It's about how you ask. If someones point of view is how sad and terrible your life must be, I don't feel like talking at all. If someone is truly interested about me and my situation the premise is completely different. Anyways it's easier for me, when people around me has general understanding about my situation. They get it why I do somethings and don't do some other things. They get it why I'm some days in wheelchair and some days not. That I can look or sound sad and quiet, even I'm not, just because I'm so tired and have pain at that moment. And it's okay to ask is it moment like that.  It's often easier to talk about my health and situation if the other one asks, because I try to limit about it, how much I talk things like this, because it's not something that everyone wants to talk.

Most important thing I hope you get from this post is, don't assume something. Always rather ask! Don't assume that I can't do something. Or I have to do something. Don't assume that if someone who you know and is in wheelchair, has the same situation or thoughts then I do. Even if two person has the same looking situations, same diagnosis etc, there life and point of view can be completely different. If you have anything you would like to ask and haven't ever had someone from who to ask, comment below! More in Twitter @FromMadeByMeri

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…
