Hi guys. I've decided to open commissions because I really need some help.

I'll try to make this as short as possible, but it's a long story.

I have rheumatoid arthritis. I was diagnosed at 15, but after 16 I was unable to keep up with appointments as there was no rheumatologist in my hometown, and I wasn't able to keep travelling to see one.

Then a doctor from Sydney started coming to my hometown every three months when I was around 18. On my first appointment with him, I'd not only been given the wrong date and had to come back on the right date, but I'd also been given the wrong time by his office. He managed to fit me in, and decided after seeing my most recent x-ray (one on my each of my wrists) that I didn't have arthritis and took me off my medication, ignoring me when I'd told him that it was in fact my back and hips that had been in a lot of pain. He also ordered me to have blood tests, and he ordered the wrong ones, which my general practitioner figured out when I saw her the following week.

Less than a month after he took me off my medication I was in pretty bad pain, and as time passed it only got worse.

My next appointment with him was 3 months after my first, and this time his office hadn't even booked my appointment despite sending me a letter that said I had one. Again, he managed to fit me in. Then he couldn't find my x-rays, found he'd ordered the wrong bloods and blamed it on his office, then he had to ask me what he'd said in my last appointment because he couldn't remember or find any of his notes in my file. After I told him everything that had happened and told him that I was in severe, debilitating pain (to the point where I was physically unable to do everyday things like get out of bed or dress myself) his exact words were "It'll get better. You just need to toughen up a bit and stick it out until it does." Then, without examining me or asking me how I was or if I had any questions, he stood up and went and opened his door and gestured for me to leave. I was so shocked I walked out, and I burst into tears in the waiting room.

After that I became depressed, and have been for the last couple of years since this happened. I was in severe pain and he was telling me there was nothing wrong with me, and it was horrible. It got to the point where I couldn't get out of bed, both due to being physically unable and being so depressed I didn't want to.

My parents intervened late last year and forced me to see my GP. I broke down in her office telling her everything that had happened, and she was completely horrified. She got me an appointment with a rheumatologist at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, as he was supposedly one of the best in the field.

I saw him last month, and he was fantastic. He and the physiotherapist I saw were extremely thorough, I was there for over 3 hours as they went over ALL of my history, thoroughly examined me, and got me straight in for x-rays and bloods. He said he has no doubt that I do indeed have rheumatoid arthritis, and put me back on my medication.

I have an appointment to see him again late next month, but as I've been unable to work this whole time, I'm struggling to get the money together for the plane ticket I'll need to get there, and my family are financially unable to help me anymore than they already are, which is a lot.

So I'm opening $10 (AUD) sketch portraits like these:

Keep in mind the Australian dollar is quite low, so for the rest of the world they'll be even cheaper.


Bullet; BlueIf you'd like one please comment here or send me a note titled 'Commission'. Let me know which character you'd like in the message/note, along with visual references of them. I'll only be drawing OC's.
Payment will be through PayPal and can be done at any point.

If you're unable to purchase I completely understand, and if it wouldn't be too much trouble I'd like to ask if you could spread this for me, either by telling people you know or posting a journal or anything really. I'd appreciate it so much, and I'd draw you a little something as a thank you.

Sorry for being so absent, it's been tough, but I'm getting there.

I'm Emily Faith, I'm a Scorpio, I take very few things seriously (writing and art being two of the very few), I love to laugh, my lucky number is 4 (am I supposed to tell people that?), I adore animals; I have dogs, goats, birds, fish and frogs just to name a few, I'm not short; I'm pocket-sized, I have a memory that resembles that of a goldfish's far too closely; I'm a pretty big fan of all things weird and quirky, and I can often be found having full-blown conversations with myself, my characters and inanimate objects.

I have no idea what I'm doing and I'm here to learn, but I hope I can do a lot of improving and meet a lot of wonderful people on they way. Thank you for checking out my profile and I hope you enjoy at least something I've created =)
