I have been waiting for this for SO LONG!! I can't believe it's finally here!! At 9AM tomorrow, I will be going in and getting top surgery, thusly needing about 1-2 weeks of downtime recovery. I've been working non-stop in both retail and comics to try and get things done and also make sure that this surgery actually happened. It was my major goal, and it's so surreal that it's time. A lot of things have happened in 2018. Some good, some bad, but a lot that made it honestly quite hard to be productive on a level that I truly wanted, specifically with comics. It was very hard to talk about at the time, but I'm hoping to be able to in the future and hopefully compile some of the things I went through (specifically in being transgender and applying for surgery) in order to help those who are like me, and fighting that uphill battle. I'm also hoping to be able to catch up on a lot of things that fell to the wayside while juggling retail and surgery prep.

Thank for your continued support. I know NDE has been patchy in updates for a long while, but I truly appreciate you sticking along for the ride. 2019 means so much to me in many ways--so many new beginnings.

I'm ready for a tiny bit of time off, and then back to the grind. Thanks for everything guys, you all mean the world. <3 Fight hard, love strong, and stay badass.

-Tess! 

PS: I'll try posting some recovery pics. ;)
