Mini Migraine Mandalas

So my sinus surgery went well, but it's taking forever for my nose to heal. It's still too sore to use my cpap mask so my migraines have been acting up big time. I should have known this would happen because I had a tooth extraction last year that took months to heal. This nose thing shouldn't be a big surprise, but it's still frustrating to go through the whole surgery thing and not see any results yet. I keep telling myself to just be patient and hang in there.

Pre-Op Appointment

I had my pre-op appointment for my deviated septum surgery for my sleep apnea and migraines in December. It looks like I will be off work for a week and I will have to spend the night in the surgical short stay observation area, which isn't an actual room, but does have curtains, which is freaking me out a little cause I was hoping for more privacy. Hopefully, I will be on enough drugs not to care at the time.

Judging by my blood pressure at the pre-op appointment, I'm going to be a nervous wreck on the day of the surgery. I've had surgery before, so I'm not sure why I'm having so much anxiety. I think I'm afraid that I will go through all this and it still won't help the sleep apnea and migraines, etc...

To be honest, I'm already having boatloads of anxiety cause I'm worried that I'm not going to be approved for the time off work, and the paperwork process is so long. This early winter is so depressing and the holidays always get me down, too. I'm trying to talk to myself like an adult so I don't have a complete melt down by the end of this year, but it's so hard.

Sugar Migraine Skull

I recently saw an exhibit at The Detroit Institute of Arts for Ofrendas by local artists. They not only honored the dead, but places, moments in time, ideas and events, so I was inspired to try drawing some of my own Sugar Migraine Skulls.

My Collage on Kickstarter

One of my migraine collages is being used as the thumbnail logo for a Kickstarter project about migraines.
