Hey friends! Long time no see, got a couple bits of news! But first off, an update is in the works, and should be posted soon! Yay!

Second, I am… in kind of a crunch. And it might get really bad, if I don’t get some help.

I was not blessed with the best genetics, and on top of that, I have been without insurance for a while now. Currently, my gums are swollen and painful to the point that I am having trouble eating, and even sometimes drinking.

Pictured here are the current state of my gums and teeth. While the swelling doesn’t seem that evident because of how far they’ve receded before, the discoloration to my gums and the way the swelling has effected the position of my teeth is clear. 

I am deeply worried that this might put my life in danger.
I need money. I really do hate to ask this, but I need what money I can get to possibly get this looked at, and caught, before it potentially turns into something genuinely life-threatening. Please, I need your help.

I’m going to set the bar at $500, and if we meet that, we’ll move it up to $1000. If I am correct, that really should cover most of anything I might need for this. If you can donate more, I would be so grateful. I love drawing Mystic Omen and giving her story to you, and I don’t want to cut it short because I couldn’t afford to seek treatment for this.

If you would like to donate, my paypal is If you would prefer to commission me, my commission prices are right here, please feel free to send me a message.

You’ve all been so good to me. And I hope I can repay you for that someday. If you could reblog this, so that it gets as much attention as possible, I would appreciate that so much.

Thank you for listening, everyone. Here’s hoping everything works out.

Spoonie Problems: When your teeth hurt. Randomly. For no reason. Okay, yeah sure, maybe one of your medications causes gum erosion. Or yeah, maybe one of your chronic illnesses can cause brittle teeth. But your teeth weren’t hurting yesterday. Why do they hurt today? And why all of them? Why all of them at once? Why do your teeth hurt?!
