I know it's been a while and I know the first question is, "Strontium are you OK?" I haven't gotten COVID or anything. No, the problem has been and continues to be the headaches. When I made the last hiatus announcement, I had started to feel like the headache problem was diminishing. Then one Saturday I spent a little too much time on the screen and it came roaring back with a vengeance. Since then, simply avoiding screens has not caused the headaches to subsist. I've tried everything - both medicinal and non-medicinal - that I can without a prescription. But I was wary about going to a doctor during this time, so I hesitated making an appointment.
Well, back in August I had enough and was able to make an appointment with a neurologist... for the end of September XO
I know that in the early days of HoT, I made art while working with chronic pain in my wrists. I was in pain a lot of the time, but my passion for the comic spurred me on. Right now, I'm not only in pain from headaches, but also living on my own and working full-time. It's a lot to juggle and I don't feel ready to re-start working on the comic until the headaches are dealt with.
So while I'm optimistic that the doctor can help me, I know that this is a really long time to wait with no comics. I will again have to ask for your generous patience while I work through this. In the meantime, I want to be able to give you guys something, so if you have any questions about the comic's story or characters or are even curious about its development, please ask down in the comments! I will do my best to provide (non-spoiler) answers : ]
Cross your fingers!!!
