PART 12: M.R.I Did Some Drawing

"I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious."

Sometimes words cannot describe what I am going through...what i am feeling...these sketches are just an attempt to work out those feelings...

Pain Image #1

the demon keeps insisting."

Pain Image #2

"tightening its grip~holding on tight...
doing its best to stay out of sight."

Pain Image #3

"flightless angry bitter rage...
tearing...tearing at its cage"

And that's Jody with a "y"

  1. These are sketches that i have been working on for weeks hands tremble so bad some times...the numbness is so aggravating...that drawing is difficult...i may create real drawings or paintings some day~this is what i can manage right now

  2. I love and hate these all at the same time...
    I love and LOVE you...........all of the time <3

  3. Sheer, painful artistry. Reminds me of woodcuts. And poetry as well? You're amazing! When my brain hurts, I can't do anything but lie in bed and wait for the meds to kick in. But you keep going, even with the dissident, rebellious nerves! How I wish to have an eraser, to remove the source of all the trouble. The prayers are continuing.

  4. Grrrr... sure seems like they could do SOMETHING to relieve the pain. A little radiation? I thought pain relief was one of the big priorities these days... doesn't every doctor have one of those "how much pain are you in today" posters on his wall? Do you just have to suffer till June? Dude. I'd keep calling the docs and tell them I needed some better relief.
