    checking in

    Hi Friends how is everyone doing? It's been ages, things have been a bit crazy for me in real life. Pneumonia that lasted forever and a lot of dealing with family health issues. it's amazing how health stuff gets in the way of everything. 😔 Anyhoo, hoping my art friends are doing well. 💙🎨 I finally finished this illustration for one of my stories that I started years ago. Woop! I'll try to check in more again. #Art #ArtTherapy #ChronicPain #chronicmigraine #BackPain #PsoriaticArthritis #SpinalStenosis #spinalcordstimulator

    Need you help!

    I want to compile a list of celebs who have been open about their mental health struggles and those who are fighting to bring awareness to it. I count those struggling with addiction as well. #TheMighty #MightyTogether #MentalHealth

    Art helps me cope

    I discovered I could draw when I was in high school. It gives me an outlet to express feelings obviously, but it also distracts me and makes me feel accomiplished. I moved from paper to digital art recently. Although, when in a deep depressive episode, I find it hard to even pick up the pencil. #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #BipolarDisorder #Art #ADHD

    Art Is Healing: Museum Art

    I wanted to share a photo from my art museum visit today that i thought some of you guys might really resonate with. “Amnesia(Anterograde)” by Emily M. Chase (2021) taken at Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center. “In Amnesia (Anterograde), Emily M. Chase depicts a floating, barely-there human form that appears to be evaporating at its core. The delicate, doubled limbs evoke physical and cognitive loss, perhaps over time and across generations. Through layers of sheer fabric that have been reversed-dyed with images of suspended bodies, Chase’s work suggests how memory is a full corporeal experience, affected by mental and physical health.” #CPTSD #Trauma #Art #Dissociation #Amnesia

    Art journaling

    #Journaling #Art #MajorDepressiveDisorder #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorder

    I know that journaling is helpful because I've done it before but for some reason anymore putting a pen to the page to write about what's going on in my life seems like too much work especially when I'm emotionally overwhelmed. However I talked to someone in my group therapy and they suggested art journaling. I'm not really sure where to start exactly. I'm guessing that a standard sketchbook will work and whatever writing utensil I so choose. However I didn't know if anyone on here had tried art journaling and found it to be helpful?? I know that there's not really any rules about drawing, painting etc. but what kind of entries do you find yourself creating?? Just curious.
