What's New in Australia

Not feeling wired at all

I'm being admitted to a mental health hospital tomorrow. Tonight I'm trying to fall asleep and hear a scratching and fluttering noise. I think it's a moth which freaks me out because I don't like the tiny possibility it could crawl in my ear. I put my glasses on, turn on the light... omg it's a dirty great big cockroach. Probably 2 inches long. The kind that can fly across the room. I put my brave face on because I'm alone tonight. I get the bug spray. Obviously it won't die immediately but rather than drop to the floor the damn thing flies towards me! I sprayed but had to turn around and I let out a weird yelp noise. Sprayed a lot, it flew at me a couple of times then squished it. I clean it up. I'm thirsty. Kitchens messy. I'm certainly not sleepy now. So I clean the kitchen. I do not feel relaxed now. #BipolarDisorder #Australia

Just wondering what gloves you guys wear in winter?
I’m noticing an almost instant reaction in my hands/finger tips after very limited contact with anything cold 🥶
the burning sensation as the blood starts to flow again is almost unbearable at this point 😩

Hello! I’m new to this group and the mighty community in general, and so far it has been a wonderful place to be a part of.
I found this group browsing this morning through the explore page and it looks right up my ally. So many talented people here! I’m not sure if anyone else here uses digital art/painting as there main medium? But personally I find it’s the most therapeutic for me :)

I finished this piece yesterday after around 13 hours of working on it, I’m going to print and frame it for my mother. The bird is a tawny frogmouth, one of mums favourite animals. We have a small family of them near our house that we check on every morning on our walk. There such unique and beautiful creatures

Emotional Trauma of living through hell on earth - Australia

I've been really struggling the last few months. I'm sure I'm not alone with this. I am normally a fairly positive and optimistic person but it feels harder than normal to continue to struggle. I feel selfish as I know people are in a lot worse position than I am.  

Its heartbreaking to try and comprehend the scale of the fire disaster here in Australia. Dealing with the smoke for months is draining physically and mentally. It's going to take years or decades for our nation to recover if it ever can. We are really going to have rally and support each other to get through this, its more important that we do this than ever before.

Money and international support is only going to do so much, its up to us to bring our communities the aid and support that they need. This has to be done on a micro level on a massive scale. Cancel your international holidays and dreams, travel and support your local community and business wherever you can.
