I have Keratoconus which is a genetic condition that causes the cornea to turn cone shaped. It makes it hard to see, because bright lights form halo effects, obscuring the vision, and making it difficult to read, and in my case, draw. The day before my birthday, I went to a specialist, who gave me three options; Cross linking eye surgery, (which is still considered experimental in the United States, and not covered by insurance) Intact lenses (also not covered by insurance) or complete cornea transplants (Which is covered by insurance, but much riskier than the other two listed). 

Although there is some hope, since the Intacts is currently going through trial runs and studies for it to be approved by most insurances, I will learn by october, if I will be an acceptible participant for the study, and receive the intacts at either a reduced price, or not pay at all.

But, worse case scenerio, I will have to pay $5000-9000 per eye.

I cannot afford that, on my walmart salary. My family is barely skating by with what we have, and we still struggle every month to make ends meet. There is absolutely no way we would be able to pay for this surgery.

And, that really scares me. 

As an artist, and a writer, I depend so much on my eyes. Keratoconus is not curable, and will only worsten, if they go untreated. I NEED this surgery, but I can’t pay for it, with the few hundred bucks I get from putting up with walmart customers.

So, I turn to you, Tumblr. This is very hard for me to do, since I was raised to believe that if someone can work for their money, they very well should, and reserve the free help to the people who truly cannot help themselves. But, if you feel like you can, and want to donate, please feel free to send that money to my Paypal, at

If you want to help in another way, please spread my Commissioning Info or feel free to commission a piece of artwork from me directly by sending me an ask here, note me at my Dev.artor Email me your information at the same Email stated for my Paypal.

Simply re-blogging this really helps as well.

Thank you for taking your time for reading this out.

I’ll share this before I close the blog because it makes me sad.

Ah yes, curly hair. If you have curly hair, like me, you know there are times when you want to have this really awesome hair cut, but you know deep in your heart that if you do, the reality will hurt because it will not come out like expected. Curly hair tends to do it’s own thing without your permission and it sucks. Unless you do all this crazy and fancy shit to it to make it behave, but because I don’t have time for that, I guess I’ll just stay with a normal, non-awesome hair cut. Don’t even talk to me about brushing curly hair when it’s dried, that shit will not be pretty unless you want to end up having giant floof as hair. Forreal. 

SOMEONE WHO FEELS MY PAIN i’m so afraid to get my hair cut short even with reference pictures cause i don’t want it to turn into a fro

okay but they still have flat stomachs…i can’t wear a bikini cause mine isn’t flat. and why are all the suits so low cut? i don’t want a suit with a power girl boobhole or pushing the melons up to make a valley.
