Chaos Necklace #Art #Color #texture

A local psychologist started an art program for children and young adults with disabilities during the pandemic. They made chaos necklaces. I totally related to that. Pandemic felt like chaos to me. I asked the leader if they were going to sell the necklaces. She said that were not. I left the subject months ago. Today I went into my office and this beautiful necklace was in the mail as a gift for me. I was so moved by this loving surprise.


Can bright colors trigger your anxiety? #Anxiety #SocialAnxiety #Color

I’m starting to think color can trigger my anxiety. I received a spreadsheet at work a few minutes ago with lots of BRIGHT YELLOW highlights seeming to scream at me. I noticed my breathing ramping up and my chest tightening. I selected all those cells and toned down the color a bit, but not before a mini-panic set in. I’m better now and posting this is helping to distract me. Do you have a similar reaction to color? (I’ve been a free lance illustrator. I’m supposed to like all colors, but lately I’m more comfortable with grays and greenish blue cool gray and other soft ambiguous colors.)

Today I’m trying to choose joy #TheMightyCraftRoom

I definitely colored for too long doing this page, but it came out so good I can’t even be mad that my neck and head hurt a little more than usual. What do y’all think?

Choosing joy may be harder than it looks sometimes, but for me today, it definitely feels worth it. I have a neurologist appointment tomorrow, so I have some anxiety about that, but I’m not allowing myself to wallow in it. Distractions, like coloring, can be a really helpful tool! 💕

Does a coloring book count? #TheMightyCraftRoom

I colored and was remotely creative for the first time since my diagnosis in March! I’m so happy I’m able to color in this motivational quotes coloring book without making my symptoms worse! Does a coloring book count as a craft in this group? I sure hope so (I’d like to share more pages as I color them)!

Ketamine is my next step I think. It reminds me of #Color . How many treatments do I have to try. I want to wake up to rainbows.


Is anyone else emotionally sensitive to colours (not just light)?

I have emotional responses to colours. Strong warm colours, oranges, reds, pinks, yellows, turquoise, fluorescents etc actually make me feel happy & more energised. Muddy and dark colours make me feel low. I’m also light sensitive and suffer a measure of SAD in the winter. Does anyone else have a similar response? #Colour #Color #sensitivities #Fibromyalgia #Fibromyalgia #ChronicFatigue
