*WARNING!* some of what i'm about to say is very personal and could offend or sadden some readers.
On Dec. 26th around 4 AM I woke up bleeding out anally. I rushed myself to the hospital to get checked on and make sure I was okay. I am not. The last time this happened to me I had to stop my HRT treatment for my own health and safety (atleast according to my doctor at the time) and as I cannot get a blood test unless i'm put to sleep due to my needle phobia and being extremely violent when faced with one and the doctors refusing to put me to sleep I am faced with an uncertain future. My health the last year or so has been deteriorating and I am forced to realize I may not be around as long as I'd hoped.
My bills, living expenses and medical expenses have made my life even harder to live and the fact that sales of my books dropped over 50% the last year are not helping either. I have been looking for part time work or even more publishing/acting work but not much has popped up the last six months so, I decided to start a patreon or have people donate directly to me via paypal to get some classic comics started up again. I've only had a few donations thus far... I will probably close up the Patreon and start again with it if anyone can help me with that or getting my books onto more sites to sell digitally.
So, what does all this mean for Changes? I have been trying to keep up with updates atleast 3-4 times a week but it's hard with my body rejecting me being able to do much more then sleep a lot... I usually wake up around noon or one o'clock in the afternoon and TRY my damndest to get atleast a page or two drawn. sometimes I do..usually I can't... So, as much as it pains me.. this current storyline will be the last put online. I will finish it and post it up for all to see but, the final two storylines will be in book format only as i'm not sure when or if they'll ever be finished. As many know I do have the final page of Changes plotted out it's just what leads up to it that is yet to be done. Some of you may ask why don't I hand over the art duties to someone else ? well, if I could afford to I would... I have said Many times that if I were to die or if something were to happen to me i'd like
to draw the final page even if there was no lead up to it these are people I love and respect and trust with giving my series its send off.
I am not trying to bum you all out. I am just giving you the reality of the situation. Life is never easy and it's not supposed to be. We need to be strong for ourselves and those we love. I'll continue doing what I do no matter what even if it's once a week or once a month. Changes is my baby and i'll do my best to see it to its conclusion as bittersweet as it may be.
I thank everyone for their support over the years and hope I can continue to bring you more fun in the future. Changes or otherwise.
