I ended up with a lot of nerve damage from Dercum’s and had trouble drawing and painting. I basically gave up that part of my life because I couldn’t draw straight lines or nice round circles right anymore. I hated not being able to perfect my art. Then one day I picked up my colored pencils and drew Lumpy. I made her to spread awareness for Dercum’s but now she has become so much more.
