  • Meet The Artist

    A few days ago i did the #meettheartist tag on instagram (@anja.sturm) and i thought it would be nice to share it here as well. There wasn’t enough space for ALL the information i had in mind but i hope you get a vague idea of who is behind this blog. Is there something else that you’d like to know?

    All the best

    Almost all invited guests are there now and everybody sings along in a christmas carol. Mama and Papa thank them all for coming.

    Als alle Gäste endlich eingetroffen sind wird erst mal ein Weihnachtslied angestimmt bei dem alle mitsingen. Mama Maus und Papa Maus bedanken sich bei den Gästen für ihr kommen.

    During a short breather, the little mouse is watching the thick snowflakes falling from the sky. He would really like to catch some of them right now.

    Während einer kleinen Verschnaufpause beobachtet die kleine Maus aus ihrem Fenster die dicken Schneeflocken, die immer noch vom Himmel fallen. Wie gern würde sie nun welche davon fangen.

  • Hello World, Again!

    hey

    This is it. This is a complete new start for the blog. This Year wasn’t the best so far. A lot happened and i had to take care of my health. 2016 started with bad and extreme pain in my back. For a few days i thought it was just another lumbago. I dealt with that several times and thought it would just go away if i waited long enough. I got worried, because the pain started to grow down my leg. I then went to doctors and specialists, they gave me some pain killers and said it would just go away by itself. After several months of taking painkillers, having physical therapy, MRTs, more appointment at doctors and people who were supposed to help me instead of telling me to wait, the pain got worse and worse. Since february i knew it was a disc prolapse. I really tried to do exercises to build some muscles, but the pain in my back and my right leg made me quit moving a lot. Since may i couldn’t sit anymore. Did I tell you that I didn’t feel ANY effect from the pain killers i took? By the time of june even going for groceries was horror. Once i even passed out from the pain. At the beginning of August it was bad enough to call the ambulance. I still couldn’t sit, I coulnd’t stand and walk anymore and I needed help to go to the bathroom, the only possible way to lay down was to lay on my belly. It was a huge overcoming for me to go to hospital because i didn’t think i was an emergency case. At long last the pain was bigger than my anxiety. When I arrived at the hospital they immediately decided that i need surgery. About 8 days later I could go home. Complete painless. I didn’t even take any pills since the day i was at home again. I can’t tell you how happy I was to put on my socks on my own again. I felt like a super hero. After being at home for 2 weeks I was sent to rehab. Now I am at home again, I can finally move, walk and sit again. Still I have to do some excersises to do to prevent new pain. I am looking forward to do a bit more for my health. I go for long walks every two to three days now. I am also including some stretching excersises while working on my desk. I am ready now to start work, print, draw and finally blog again.
