In my vague and fuzzy brain-fogged memory, I remember reading an interview in which someone said her chronic illness was a gift. I don’t remember where I read it, because brain fog.
I don’t want to insult anyone’s coping mechanism, but I can’t really get with thinking of chronic illness as a gift, even though I am trying to be more positive and less Debbie Downer this year.
Here’s the thing: if it’s a gift, we can send it back, right? I hope people who do a lot of online shopping will relate to these.
I’ve never done a four-panel cartoon, so that’s why it has two endings. Please vote for the ending that you like better.
I’m trying to learn these four-panel comics to develop my work and be more like a Real Cartoonist. They look simple but take ages—this one took weeks, because thanks to the Evil Tendinitis, I have to work on everything in short bursts and stretch, apply CBD oil beforehand, ice afterwards, and do exercises for my schlumpy posture. My massage therapist taught me a good trick which might help those of you who cook or do crafts. You soak a washcloth in a bowl of hot water mixed with about 3/4 cup of Epsom salts and then apply it to the sore forearm/hand/whatever. I thought I would share it for those of you who do crafts or cooking.
I wish everyone a low-pain day or even better, a no-pain day! And I hope you all have lots of spoons today! 💚💚💚
