I have been very ill for weeks and am still very weak, sorry for missing things

edit: I think I am having a relapse :(
Due to theft of my work and worse still, butchering my work to remove my old watermark, see link Paintedover and here Untitled , I have re-watermarked a lot of my stuff. I know this peeve's some people and to be blunt, I don't care, if you don't want to fave my work because of a watermark that's your decision but don't comment on my work about it. I am not interested in having arguments over it.

On a daily basis I see DA art all over, especially facebook and not just that but DA art that is being sold on ebay and other sites in the form of cross stitch to phone cases.

I don't make art for other people, I make it for me and if you are bothered there is a brief explanation on my profile page.
Yes, it is always nice to get good comments and even constructive criticism. If people want to fave or comment or add me as a friend I am always very grateful, but as I have been on this site for 10 years, getting followers isn't my top priority or even something I am bothered about. 

April 14 update. I may have caught this too late as it is popping up on pinterest by other users, on the up-side, at least no one will know it's mine. I would recommend anyone checking the site out, while most 'pin' direct from your page so that if anyone clicks it, it takes you to your DA art page, a lot don't. Type your DA user name in the search box

:iconposhpegasus: made this lovely OC for me, thank you so much xx

In case anyone actually wants to know a little about me. I am 43 and married. i have a 17 year old daughter and a 6 year old son, who has autism and severe development delay due to premature birth at 27 weeks.
I live in the UK and I have lived in San Jose California. My mum has recently had a bone marrow transplant as she had bone marrow cancer. She is fighting, although she is having some rejection issues, she has what is called Chronic GVHD in her eyes and ears, fingers crossed treatment for this works x
Art is my escape.

April 13, 2015. A little more about me, I am basically a shut in due to my sons condition. It is very difficult to go out and harder to find places that cater for his issues. He goes to a special needs school which gives me some free time during the day but I am always so tired.
My knee op was a lot more than I thought it was and I am still not right, my surgeon thinks I may get 10 years with minor ops along the way before a knee replacement. I am on the borderline for COPD from years of smoking, I no longer smoke. I didn't realise how close I came to death with the pneumonia I caught last year.
My mum is doing ok, it's a fine line with all the drugs she has to take, some work, some don't. The GHVD in her eyes is still being treated, but surgery may be necessary to open her tear ducts.
That's it for now xx

May the 3rd 2015. Just found out that my mum needs two lenses for her eyes and they want $7,000 EACH, seriously, how can they justify this, her insurance won't cover it, so lets hope the charity will help her, cause we ain't got 14 grand :(
july 14, 2015. I should have updated a few weeks ago, my mum got funded for her lenses. They are hard, but they have to be to hold the drops she has to put in them as the chemo killed her tear ducts, and without tears you go blind xx
On Christmas eve 2015 my mum had a fall, a few days later she was very unwell, she finally went to the hospital and discovered that she had broken her arm and was suffering a heart attack. She is now home after having a stent inserted in her heart xx
