    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

    This photo is a descriptive representation of what my manic can look like.
    I’ve done the whole change my hair a drastic color and chop most of it off. I’ve rebelled against myself and changed things about myself based off of temporary feelings of impulse. Changing my hair color makes me fe better. Doing my makeup different gives me more confidence. Expressing myself helps my insides be able to flourish a little bit. Even if I look crazy for a week, it made me feel a little bit more me...or a bit more crazy...either way it helped me be more me. Being myself has always been a bit of a struggle because A. I wasn’t always comfortable with myself and B. I didn’t really know who I was. ( as we all don’t fully know.) it’s always been a challenge especially of being judged upon. Basically I’m at a point in life where I don’t necessarily feed into negativity of any kind, especially with my appearance. Accepting who we are on the outside is so important but yet so hard. Trying to find little things is hard when all you see is darkness sometimes. So why not add some excessive crazy colors into the madness? #Expressfeelings #expressinglove #Bewhoyouare #Color #r #MentalHealth #Bipolar #RandomThoughtsRandomMind
