Artwork Description

Oil Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

Some years ago, I started noticing subtle changes in my body. Sporadic and intense pain would occur, I started dropping things, my hearing came and went, my vision would be perfect one day and blurry the next. Every sensory sensation seemed to be painfully magnified or it'd just disappear completely. I started forgetting how to do everyday activities, forgetting words I would normally use every day and stuttering. I recorded 127 symptoms over three years and I was tested for something different every week. Every test came up negative. Eventually, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, but I couldn't help but feel somewhat violated throughout the diagnositc process. The invasion of my body by doctors, even though it was consensual, brought up trauma for me that was born when I was sexually abused in my teens. This painting discusses the submission, hesitation, discomfort and fear that comes with pursuing a diagnosis.
