I'm tired of using words to describe what it's like living with Arnold Chiari Malformation Type I. So instead I'm using pictures.

 

Still here…

I’ve been dealing with a med holiday, a wildly inappropriate doctor and the decline of my health. Art isn’t coming as easily. Hopefully there’ll be more ink selfies soon.

Thanks for all your support!
