Since last friday or so, my eating pattern has just gone out the window and I am really struggling with stress, anxiety and consequently eating. I had this last year, and it is very frightening. To lost half a stone (approximately 3 to 4 kilos) in two weeks is also discomforting and I wish not to go through it again... I have a lot of work not studio-related that I need to do but when I work on my sculptures and projects, it is in my free time where I allow myself to unwind.
I am feeling very hungry but too stressed to eat as I type this and the fear of me losing more weight is also making the stress worse. I know that this blog is for my studio bits and bobs but sometimes it is better to talk about your feelings and make them known. Mental health is very overlooked these days and I sometimes feel my problems go unnoticed when I am seriously struggling. It feels right now that my projects are keeping me going!! This phase will pass soon but right now I am not feeling comfortable. :-(
I worked on Gallega some more on Sunday night, I have been refining her mane and she is really starting to look like the elegant little lady she is meant to be, now. Her profile is annoying me still slightly and so she is still far from being complete, I still seek constructive criticism on her...
Speaking of customising, I pulled out a Todd from the box and I worked on him a bit. Just for a bit of fun, I sculpted on a mane that resembles that of a fjord pony. I seem to have a thing for fjord ponies this year!
