My rat, Stella, is very sick. She's losing weight so that you can feel her spine and ribs, but her stomach is distended, and she's spending a lot of time alone, shaking, under cover. We're not sure what's wrong with her. We need to go to the vet, but we have literally no money right now (school expenses have sucked me dry, and I STILL need books), and I still owe commissions on my queue. Nick's not getting another paycheck for a week. In the meantime we need gas and food. To top everything off I'm paranoid about catching the flu, and if I do, I'm totally screwed school-wise. Graaaaah
I feel like such a failure right now. I don't know if I should take on additional commissions knowing that I probably wouldn't be able to start them for several weeks.
I guess the only thing left to do is lower my prices :/ If anyone wants to order a painted character portrait, they're $25 for a limited time. Even if I can only get like 4 of these it would keep me afloat and would let me take my rat to the vet.
You guys are amazing! I got a nice bunch of commissions queued up and some of you guys even DONATED (wow!).. I am very touched thanks a ton to everyone for all the emotional/financial support.
