You might be wondering why I didn’t post a comic on Monday, and why I won’t be posting one tomorrow. Simply put, I’ve had chronic neck pain that’s been giving me nausea headaches. They flare up from time to time; it usually happens when I strain my neck somehow, or when I spend too much time in front of the PC. They follow the course of a three-day headache, but if I keep aggravating my neck (as I seem to be doing), they can go on indefinitely.
When I get these headaches, if I look down too much, or off to the sides, or at the monitor screen for too long…basically anything besides straight ahead, I feel like I’m going to be sick. The miasma of illness never leaves unless I have constant neck support. I’ve got a doctor’s appointment on Friday so I can get to the bottom of this nonsense. I can’t describe just how frustrating this is; I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, ergo I don’t know how to prevent it. I’m also itching to introduce a new character (!) and maybe shed a little light on our ghostie’s past (!!), so this comes at a horrible time. Please hang in there, and I’ll try to make myself better, for all of our sakes.
