Kaye Haychold's ambitious plan

I am slowly making the next page

Postby Jennifer Diane Reitz » Wed Sep 17, 2008 12:36 pm

Despite my numb finger, I am slowly making the next page of To Save Her. It isn't easy, bear with me.

I am going to a chiropractor as oft I can, but fixing such things is slow business. There is a chance I could never regain full nerve function.

Which is why I am pressing on, trying to draw anyway. I can draw, just not as easily. Subtle control is the issue.

Anyway, that is the update.

Hurray! Progress!
^v^
I think I'm not alone in the sentiment that I'd rather see the story finished slowly, if the other options are badly or not at all. Take your time. Heal.

Or, if chiropractice doesn't lead to perfection, you could wait for Moore's Law to cycle a few times and then have us all chip in to buy you a kickass replacement arm. It's preferred by 4 out of 5 basket men!

As I read this, my first idea was, "Hey, maybe we could help you."
But that's a silly idea, just created by the withdrawl treatment we comic junkies do have.
It is Jennifers comic adventure and she has to draw and to finish it, how long ever it takes.

Last time as something similar happens with PDH, I made some parodies, I didn't tell the story further, I made my jokes inside the pastell universe.
I don't want to show my silly and dumb behaviour again.
I have decide to wait.

Relax your muscles in the neck and gute Besserung, Jennifer!

And S_P, no replacement for any arm!
I would prefer a direct connection from the brain to the wacom tablet, yeah!

Don't do yourself harm for the likes of us. We can wait. Do what the doctor tells you, drink plenty of fluids, avoid smoking and alcoholic beverages (no matter how refreshing), drive the speed limit, and eat your vegetables.

Jenny doesn't actually DRAW her comic, she just uses a pen to cover up the places on the page where her comic ISN'T. That way, we can see it too! :D

Just remember, if you wait until it's comfortable, you're NEVER going to get started again. Healing hurts. If you want to maintain function in something that loses function, the proper way to go about it is to start using it, just a little at first, then build back up to what you were doing before, once it's had a good solid chance to mend. Broken leg? Start walking on it the same day the cast comes off. Even if it's just a few steps that first day. It'll be tough at first, but it's tougher the longer you leave it alone.

I knew a guy who walked everywhere, and with a cracked patella, when he went in to get the cast put on the doctor asked if it had ever actually been broken.

Why is it such a hard decision?

Caveat: Everybody's different. My advice may not apply to everyone, especially not you (yes you!). There's a story I heard secondhand, so the veracity is dubious, but of a man who was hit by a car, and paralyzed from the waist down. The doctors all told him he'd never walk again. He was out of the hospital and running within two weeks. No prosthetics. Minimal physical therapy. Moral of the story: Doctors aren't always right.

Also, doctors tend to err on the side of pessimism. If the doc says you'll be paralyzed for life and you end up fine in a few weeks, maybe you inwardly think the doc's an idiot, but you'll probably just consider yourself lucky and get on with your life. If the doc says you'll be fine in a few weeks and you end up paralyzed, you'll sue for malpractice.

Try acupuncture. My mother and I go to a chiropractor regularly, and it helps keep us in good shape, but it is not enough for certain injuries. And do not wait too long. My mother has had some numbness for a year or so now, I told her to try acupuncture when it first started and the chiropractor( sister of our original chirpractor, who was a dear friend of my mother and died of cancer) said she had done her best but it needed something else. Now mom has fnally seen the acupuncturist, and he says he can help with her more recent problems( which prompted her to go) but she is too late for him to fix the original numbness.
