Commissions and PSA for Help

Hello all!  So I am finally doing the thing, despite all of my fears.  So if anyone and everyone is willing to listen, I’ll tell you my situation.

Since the end of February I have been dealing with serious health issues.  My body pretty much shut down on me due to previous health issues and the high demands of college.  If anyone is curious and wants to educate themselves, research adrenal fatigue and failure and hypothyroidism.  Anyway, I suffered and still do.  I almost put myself in the hospital multiple times and living day to day like a normal person is near impossible.  Sadly not many people, doctors included, understand these issues but I thankfully have friends who are doing there best and a mother who has the same problems.  I’m doing everything in my power to heal but I will not see full recovery until 6 months or a year, depending on how much damage my body really took.  Thanks to all of this, it is near impossible for me to work.  I can’t even get up a flight of stairs without getting dizzy or laboring for breath.  My focus right now is to make sure this doesn’t get worse and lead to even more issues, such as chronic fatigue and autoimmune disease.  However, despite my mom’s knowledge on this stuff and understanding, she has taken to reminding me I need to work and if I can’t get better and get a job by December, she’s making me move back in with her and my stepfather.  I cannot stress enough how toxic it is back home, especially with my mom.  If I move back I will get sicker, actually.  I could write a novel on why I cannot move back.  Most importantly, because she is pretty much threatening taking me back midway through my lease, which would leave my best friend and roommate S.O.L.  So I’m doing the one thing I can.  DRAWING.  I am opening up commissions so that I don’t just have to beg for strangers money but so that I can actually at least do SOMETHING to make a little bit of money.  I have also added a donation button to my about me page for those kind souls who would be willing to spare extra my way.  It’s not necessary, but it would be appreciated above and beyond.

So here’s how it goes:

First off, I do sketches, mostly by pencil, but can do digital if requested.  Lineart I can do both traditionally and digitally.  And anything with color is strictly digital, lines and all.

  1. Sketches - $3 for Bust $5 for Full
  2. Lineart - $8 for Bust $10 for Full
  3. Flat Colors - $10 for Bust $12 for Full
  4. Simple Background and Full Colors - $14 for Bust $16 for Full
  5. For #4 but without lineart - $18 for Bust $20 for Full
  6. Any added characters will start at an extra $5 per.  Depending on difficulty the price may vary.
  7. Any client who spends over $30 on one purchase will receive a free sketch of their choice c:

Contact/paypal me via email: aubsy06@gmail.com  This will be a much easier way to contact me instead of the tumblr messaging system but you can send me stuff in my inbox if you need to.  I will do everything through paypal as well.  I will ask for payment up front and will give you a time frame of completion once details are sorted out.  Reference is greatly appreciated.

Even if you can’t spend money or donate, please help me by spreading the word and reblogging my post.  Every little bit counts and I know tumblr is a very helpful community that helps others out, especially in their times of need.  Thank you <3

How does one spread a post on this site.  I mean, I’m not much for begging but I really need money and I need a lot more commissions if I’m going to be able to try and support myself.  Art is literally the one job I can do with this illness.  Unless I’m like how I was last night, but thankfully that’s not often.  I just really need money….

my life got about a thousand times better once i stopped censoring myself

and by censoring i don’t mean i suddenly embraced indiscriminate swearing; i mean i stopped trying to sugarcoat my past or my feelings; i stopped lying by omission; i stopped having guilty pleasures; i began unabashedly enjoying whatever i liked; i became very honest; i cut out of my life poisonous people and negative ideals, and i am so, so much happier for it

Today is a pretty big day for me. Generally, I don’t mention this because I try to hide it and negate any judgement but I think I should be open and be a source of inspiration maybe.

Today marks my 6 year anniversary. 6 years ago I cut for the last time and swore to quit.

At that time I didn’t know it’d be my last time.  I had sworn off injury so many times and relapsed.  I felt this was an eternal battle that I had entered.  The difference then was that when I decided to quit, it was for me.  Not for a friend or relative or for any miscellaneous reason other than for myself.  For love and respect and for a future not ruled by my addiction.

It’s been a tough journey. I’ve been through some awful shit since then. Sadly my time within an abusive situation brought me to scratch myself and dip very close to the edge. I still have issues but it’s been a road of recovery.  In the end I haven’t taken a blade to myself in 6 years. Despite how close to the edge I’ve been and all the terrible things that have triggered me, I still remained clean of it all.

My main point for those who struggle or who have also been recovered for years is that it’s never easy.  There are times where you will be triggered, even years after. BUT IT DOES GET BETTER. The urges are less severe and frequent. You learn how to cope in different ways.  It will always be a part of you and your history but you can recover.  You can regain control. I’ve had my slips and close calls but I still carried on and here I am at 6 years cut free. 

Be brave, love yourself, never give up. If I have done this, so can you.  And you are never a failure if you relapse.  Just get back on  your feet and try. You never know when that last time will actually be your last <3

I don’t care what kind of blog I have I will blog this no matter what.

"Craving sensation: feeling unreal" was such a huge part of the beginning of my relapse. I was convinced that people in front of me didn’t even exist and I kept touching things and trying to feel sensation. I’m reblogging because I know that that was so horrifying for me and I never want anyone else to go through it. 

Just in case this can help someone. Some suggestions also seem harmful (eating a hot pepper really hurts!!!) but steps to feeling better and not self harming is most important. Sending you love and light

STOP SCROLLING! Please reblog this vitally important information because at least one of your followers is self-harming. Thank you!
