– My arm is getting better. I had another appointment with my physical therapist today and she was happy with my progress. Most of my mobility is back, and its getting easier to use my right hand for longer periods of time without a lot of pain. That’s all good news. The bad news is that the exercises I need to do to stretch the muscles of my arm are REALLY painful, so much that I’ve been nauseous, dizzy and light headed for the last several days. I’m told this will pass in time, but for now its pretty uncomfortable. I’m a little concerned that something else might be going on, but my doctor seems to think everything is okay.
Anyway, here’s another left hand drawing. I hope you like it! Thank you all for your support and patience over the last few weeks. I really appreciate it.
– Hi everyone. I’d like to mention that you can support my work on Patreon or Ko-fi (or by ordering stuff from my store). I’m sure you won’t be surprised to find that I don’t make much. Since the pandemic money has been especially tight, and I’ve had to spend more and more time on freelance work and commissions to pay the bills. Which means less time making comics and art for you all to enjoy. Recently things have improved a little due to several very generous readers, but I could still use your support. If you can spare a small monthly contribution through Patreon or a tip through Ko-fi I’d really appreciate. Your support directly help finance both my comics work and pay my living expenses!
Modest: makes fun of Jake for saying his arm hurts.
Also Modest: didn’t know Jake’s arm hurts.
Did she think he was complaining for fun? xD
I wasn’t considering these to have any continuity, or even be canon. I guess I’m pretty clearly not thinking about them too much as I make them.
But doesn’t she lack bones? Isn’t she basically like Kiff from Futurama, held together by a series of fluid-filled sacs?
We don’t really know. But i hadn’t intended for these to be canon.
In the YMMV category, try getting some fresh ginger and making ginger tea with at least an inch cut up into little slices at a time. There’s a lot of research into the effects of ginger on pain – you can find a list of studies on nutritionfacts dot org by searching “ginger” and then looking at the sources cited button for any video listed (which also has various suggestions for dosage). It’s cheap and easy to try the fresh stuff without ending up with a bottle of pills that you don’t know where they came from, plus if it doesn’t work, it’s a great ingredient for lots of meals to add some extra kick.
Oh, we actually have fresh ginger at the house, I think. I’ll try it. Thanks.
I honestly think ginger works like Major Pain’s method of distraction from pain. When ginger hurts your receptors in mouth it distract your brain from constant pain it used to feel.
Does Modest even have bones?
We don’t know. Older Hydra do.
Where’s an X-ray machine when you need one? 😀
I definitely feel bad for you for your continued roughness with your injury healing. I also feel bad I am doing nothing to help -_-;;
Well thanks. I appreciate you being here and reading the comic. Please don’t worry about me. I like to complain, but I’m really doing okay. Overall this has been annoying, frustrating and painful, but MUCH better and easier than it could have been.
