For those of you who weren't aware, I spent a solid year and a half being sick. 
The Symptoms: Heart beating too hard and/or too fast literally CONSTANTLY. Tingling in my feet, dizziness, shortness of breath, fainting spells, and major nausea. Whenever I laid down, the nausea became worse. 
I was so behind on sleep that I would begin to dream while I was awake. 
I went to the Emergency Room a handful of times, a cardiologist, and of course, the doctor countless times. Nothing was conclusive. Doctors kept focusing on stress. I kept pleading with them to look beyond stress.
Think of it like this. Someone is choking you and you can't breathe which is stressing you out. The doctors say, "Oh! It must be stress! Let's treat that!" all the while SOMEONES HANDS ARE AROUND YOUR THROAT. PLEASE TREAT THAT.

At one time I even thought the problem may have been my wisdom teeth. They were broken and had been for years. Maybe I was swallowing some sort of infection? I tried so many things to fix this mysterious sickness. I had my wisdom teeth yanked out, changed my diet, quit caffeine, started running ... I had EKGs done, had a holter moniter, an Ultrasound.. nothing. I was even tested for an ulcer.
I even resorted to talking to a psychic. Yes, I'm serious.
The psychic said it was something I was eating. Possibly gluten. Went to the doctor: It's not gluten. (Or Lupus, lol)

One day, my husband made the most interesting connection between my sickness.. and my pet rabbit, Chiyo. I had gotten him about a week before I had gotten sick. I thought about it, and he was right. I had exhausted all my other options, so my only choice was to get rid of my fluffy friend and see if I would recover.
He went to a totally awesome lady that brings animals to old-folks homes and schools for educational purposes and to make people happy. She even has a website where I can see photos of him if I want, so I know he's in an awesome home.
After Chiyo left, I. Cleaned. EVERYTHING. Everything with pet dander and dust, the vents, the walls, EVERYTHING...
It has been two months since we got rid of him and I have never felt better. My sickness.. that I had suffered for nearly two years, vanished within a week. It was incredible.
Does anybody know what it is about rodents that can affect people this way? It wasn't his bedding, it was him specifically. The sickness would get worse the messier his cage got. I used to use sawdust, but then switched to cedar. The cedar even seemed to help. I miss my little bean bun, but I'm glad he's in an awesome home and I'm so thrilled to be feeling better. 
I would love to understand why this happened.
Thoughts anyone?

Pinkie Pie Painted! by Reyndrys
Pinkie Pie Painted!
I finished painting Pinkie today! I used Golden Fluid Acrylics, which are a pain in the ass, but totally worth the results. (And for some reason make her look delicious..) She looks way better in person. I need to improve my photography.. *sigh* 
Any questions are welcome, as well as constructive criticism :)
I'm really proud of this one, guys. She's SO much smoother than my previous sculpts. My techniques have changed a TON since I first started.

WiP Unpainted Pinkie Pie Sculpt by Reyndrys
WiP Unpainted Pinkie Pie Sculpt
I just need to sand her and paint her!
She is made from an insulated wire armature, milliput, followed by a 50/50 mix of Super Sculpey Original and Super Sculpey Firm. Some of the more fragile parts are made from ProCreate resin.
I'm quite excited about this piece. I haven't finished a sculpt in a while so it feels really good.
