3rd Leading Cause of Death & Disability isn't a Disease, it's
A collection of creative works expressing personal Medical/Dental harm thru artistic expression and perspective.
In 2012 I was in a terrifying car accident. Injured from head to toe, with no knowledge of how to address the situation, I went with the first lawyer I found and inevitably lost out on my settlement, leaving me permanently damaged with no long-term care.
Since then it has been a series of falls and concussions and surgeries. Beginning January 2020 I have been experiencing Trigeminal Neuralgia and Occipital Neuralgia symptoms 24/7.
The constant pain sent me into a deep dark depression where I was contemplating just "ending it" but realized I needed to release this negative energy and thoughts into something productive instead. So I painted. My Chronic Pain paintings have received such a meaningful response from those also suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia pain that I am planning on publishing a Trigeminal Neuralgia picture book. I hope my artwork will be a voice for those with this horrible invisible illness.
