Update: Commissions + Twitter

Permanent Linkby Chameleonette on Tue Dec 04, 2018 7:03 pm

First and foremost, my commissions will be opening VERY SOON.

I plan to do them in groups of five. There are two spots already on reserve (as they have been waiting a long time for me to open again), so I will initially be taking 3 more on top of those to start. (Also please note that prices have changed a bit!)

But don't fret if you don't make it into the first batch. I will be opening commissions more frequently from now on. Coupled with having to quit my job, the day after Thanksgiving, I had to go to the ER for the first time. And being uninsured, I now have a bill of $927 to pay to the hospital. I will try to set up a payment plan with them if I'm permitted, but I will be working hard to make this money with commissions. Just art commissions for now, but with enough interest, I will consider writing commissions in the near future as well.

And with the downfall of tumblr and their ban on NSFW content, I may also be making a Patreon in the future. Should you have been interested in seeing more of my original pred/prey characters in situations/content you can vote on (and perhaps even feature in), and request raffles and such, perhaps be on the look out for that in the new year!

Also, I have now made a Twitter account very specifically for my NSFW content and vore! You can find that here: https://twitter.com/chameleonette

And finally, if you would like to donate anything to help me out, that would be immensely appreciated. But only if you wish to! Any little bit helps. I have a Ko-Fi that you can find here: https://ko-fi.com/amissapanda Or alternatively, my PayPal is [email protected]

I would like to do Ko-Fi donation sketch doodles to thank people in the future, but I do have to put my efforts into commissions first for now, given my current circumstances.

Thank you all, thanks for your support with my work (which means more now than ever with how NSFW is getting shut down over main platforms like tumblr), and I hope I can continue making content for this fetish. I still have lots of things to upload from future and present here and I will be getting around to doing that, as well.

I really, REALLY have to make a NSFW twitter account especially after tumblr imploding.

[Should have done it long ago but we find it hard to manage multiple accounts. Occasionally we forget a couple for a while. Tumblr was one of them.]

Oh, I don't post any of my NSFW art on my Ko-Fi. That's all safe stuff. But it's still a nice little platform for supporting creators.

Yeah, the bill is pretty steep. I've never been to the ER, so I had no idea what to expect. But I'll work through it.

It's not a bad idea, imo. The community there so far is pretty nice, from what I've seen.

Hey Chammy, are you in the US? I'm asking because I just got my life together after my health insurance came incredibly close to destroying my financial freedom, and I want to pass the saving grace on (spoiler: it's Medicaid). If you're in an Obamacare-friendly US state, and you're making somewhere between $0 and ~$30k (depends on the state what the upper threshold is), you should really try to find if you can get health coverage. More below the spoiler tag.

Spoiler: show
Basically, I have enough chronic health problems to see 3 specialists every month (at a minimum) and so, with a small-business job without benefits, I had to opt to pay out-of-pocket for the best health coverage available to me. It was $720 per month for 2018 (for a single-person household, yep) and I still had to pay $519 per month after getting a government subsidy.

My income for this past year was less than my previous year's, but I didn't know until recently by how much. More importantly, my annual income this year is slightly below $24,120. Instead of a partial discount, this put me just in range of the Medicaid-tier plans offered through Obamacare, which means that after reporting a change-of-income to my insurance, I am now signed up for a better health plan that costs me... $20 per month.

Take a look at this link as an example. I don't know how much you know about health insurance, but since your blog post says you're uninsured, I'm going to give tiny explanations and you can let me know if you want to know more. On that linked page, there's 4 Medicaid-level plans listed. The rightmost column, which is the "worst" of these plans, has a $0 deductible (so coverage kicks in immediately, you don't have to fork over any full costs beforehand), a $2,000 out-of-pocket maximum (so the most you'll ever be on the hook for within a single year TOTAL (except the premiums) is $2k), and the only co-insured thing is hearing aids and it's only 5% (so you're not going to have to pay any money for operations, for example, other than the copay for actually going there). These plans are insanely good for the premiums' costs.


I know my post kinda reads like I'm a shill for some health insurer, but this is really out of the sheer excitement I've been feeling for the past 60 days that I no longer have to consider moving back in with my parents or dumping my ideal career track for a rat-race job. I want to shout it on the rooftops that help with medical costs really has been available.

Also, at the end of the day, this post can't help you with your current $927 medical bill, I'm sorry. But if you can work through this, you might be able to make sure that these unexpected costs don't hit you hard again in the future.

Oh, I do know that Medicaid is a thing. But it's a pain in the ass in my state. I've been trying to get health insurance for several years. I tried online, but they consistently keep refusing to verify my identity (birth certificate and state ID have been denied many times). And yet keep sending me constant e-mails about my enrollment not being finished and not saving it on their site when I fill everything out. So that's annoying as all heck. Then I went to someone in the area to talk about health insurance, had a 20-25 minute consultation, only to find out that it's law in my state that you have to be turned down for Medicaid before you can even apply or be eligible for anything else.

Unfortunately, they made Medicaid nearly impossible to apply for. I got a packet from the health and services building in my area and the questions were things that neither I could answer, nor get accurate answers for from my family, asking all sorts of things about home, cars, other insurance, medical history, etc---even of your family, not just yourself. It was a nightmare. I couldn't fill it out properly (and my father got too frustrated trying to help me figure things out) and I asked them if they could just turn me down so I could go on to find something to help me out. They refused. And they didn't accept my half-filled out packet, either. Getting Medicaid here is BRUTAL.

But I'm trying again soon. They have done away with the 'fill out the booklet' system and now offer interviews. So I'm going to be making an appointment to get an interview and hope for the best. If you landed Medicaid on what you make, I should have no problem getting it (I hope), as I didn't make nearly that much and am now unemployed. I hope this works out, because medical bullshit is not only expensive, but now 3x more expensive than it used to be here now that the hospital I go to became 'for profit' as of a couple years ago.
