    So.. hungry..

    - Getting my throat cut tomorrow Ė

    Literally actually, It was a year ago or so that I started wondering why I was so irritable some days and fell asleep just about any time of the day just about anywhere, so I went to the doctor and had myself checked. Turns out I got this sleeping apnoea thing where you stop breathing in intervals during the night and it can potentially kill you sooner or later as it wears out the heart and make you do really stupid things during the day due to sleep deprivation (Like breaking my finger as I attempt to jump into my bed and misses). A year later and Iím finally getting my surgery done tomorrow (!).They're going to do allot of shit with my throat/mouth tomorrow so I won't exactly be in heaven the following weeks and I don't know how long I'll be doing painkillers and be to drugged up to do much of anything. Iím supposed to be asleep by now but Iím way too jumpy for that.

    Anyhow, Iíve been a member here at CA for almost two years now and it just dawned on me that even though Iíve browsed this forum for so long, learned so much and gotten used to so many people around here. Iíve just about not learned to know anyone or hardly made any posts myself.

    Iím an extremely social bugger otherwise and I hardly ever get to meet any artists in my everyday life so I really should take this great opportunity to actually say hello to all you crazy artists who keep inspiring me and whoíve been a part of my life for so long. Iíve wanted to go to the workshops ever since I first found this place but there is so much stuff going on in my life that I havenít been able to, but rest assured that I will show up on one of those things within the coming years (Keep a look out for a really tall Swede with a stupid smile on his face and a big camera in his hands, looking like he reached nirvana)

    So, consider this my long due introduction and way of saying ďHi everyone!Ē and thanks for all the laughs, inspiration and for making this place a generally great community!

    And of course Iíd like to send my humble gratitude to the guys at Massive Black for kick starting this un-stoppable snowball of artistic dreams and visions known as conceptart.org. Keep doing your thing and sooner or later youíll realise that youíve inspired and helped just about a whole generation of young struggling artists from all over the world.

    Best regards

    g'luck, hope you get well after the surgery. My dad had his throat cut due to a herniated disc, but he recovered very quickly, even worked the next day.

    Hello everyone, I just got back home and I’m currently re-defining my personal understanding of the word ”pain”. Great fun in a “please kill me now” kind of way, I haven’t eaten or slept in two days now and I’m on some freaky medication so I’m currently in a bit of a funky state of mind to say the least.


    @sve: Many thanks for the support; I’ll keep you posted on my adventures.

    @Carnifex: Thanks man, your one of the people I feel like I already know somewhat, I’ve seen your stuff, your photos and even photos of you as well

    @Seedling: Thanks, nice to meet you to

    @moopuff: Thanks, I’ll definitively start posting some stuff as soon as my head is clear enough and I got something to show

    @JLAIfaro: Thanks, glad to meet you to.

    @Elwell: Thanks man, my hat of to you, you’ve given me many laughs and things to ponder over the years.

    @Hyver: Thanks, you went through the surgery as well?

    @Jabo: Thanks, well I’m heavily medicated and still in a lot of pain/discomfort right now and the Doc say I’m not supposed to do anything for 10 days but I hope for a quicker recovery then that.

    The faint or easily disgusted can skip the next part:

    Well I’ve had some great adventures the last days, the most disturbing being yesterday when I against my best knowledge decided to have a peek down my throat to se how it looked. I got up from my bed and dragged my gismo on wheels with me (the rack with nutrition and such going through tubes into my hand.) I slowly stumbled to the bathroom in my sexy hospital shirt, they don’t really make the shirts in sizes for guys 1,97m tall so I must have looked pretty stupid. I firmly grabbed the sink and looking in the mirror I slowly pried my mouth open as wide as I could, man that was a mistake. A, it fricking hurt, bad. And b, it looked like something from a horror movie, There where stitches everywhere and everything was just an un-even stitched mess back there. The natural primal reaction to this turns out to be vomiting and I feel my stomach starting to spasm, well I’m no rocket scientist but I realize that if I vomit right now I’m in for a really shitty experience so I fight it with everything I got, it takes about 10-15 minutes for me to breath normally again but at least I managed to stop myself from throwing up. I’d take a photo of my mess of a throat for you guys and galls If I didn’t know that it would probably make me vomit and now that I’m at home and not at the hospital that would probably be an even more un-pleasant experience. Anyhow, I’ll keep you guys posted on my trip to recovery.

    Much love

    Hey Jove, if you're on weird medicine, try doing some drawing. Not only will it take your mind off the pain for a while, but you may draw some really freakish stuff! LOL

    Hang in there, buddy!

    Hey man, why couldn't you just get a C-PAP machine. I have a terrible case of sleep apnea. I recently got a machine that pumps air into my lungs as I sleep. Im assuming you were given this option already? I guess its too late if not since you already got the operation, but I hope everything works out for you. It sure does suck not getting your sleep dude, and it will change your life. It did mine. God Bless and a speedy rec. to you.

    Hey Jove, didn't see this post until today and it seems like you were able to get through surgery alright. I haven't had any serious surgery myself (only surgery I've really had was getting my wisdom teeth removed, which many probably wouldn't consider anything at all hehe) but I really feel for ya; just keep yourself occupied and I'm sure you'll start to feel better really soon get well soon and nice to meet ya!

    No more peeking at those stitches if doing so is going to make you barf! ;-) You'll be glad you went through this once you've healed up a bit. In the mean time, enjoy some well-earned rest and relaxation!

    @Pixel8: Haha, thanks. Iím mostly trying to sleep or watching movies, I havenít had any food for a while now and Iíve dropped four kilos so Iím trying not to do anything to active or I get a bad headache.

    @Scubasteve: A what now? How come no one told me before? I went to the doctor, they made some tests and said I needed surgery, end of that. I didnít get to hear of any magic machine :/ Even though, if this fixes it permanently I guess itís easier then bringing with you a machine everywhere? Thanks for the support.

    @Onir: Thanks for the support man, glad to meet you to.

    @Seedling: Iíve learned that lesson Yeah thatís what I keep telling myself, Iím doing my best to relax but mostly Iím just trying not to think of how freaking hungry I am!

    Hereís a self-portrait I did the night before my surgery, Iíve changed it slightly now after the surgery, have a look in my sketchbook if you want to see the original.
