I'm using a weird coping mechanism. I never played with my Barbies as a kid but due to a cool musician playset I ended up buying one.

Then I suffered a huge pain setback and somehow personalizing the doll and posing her has been helping me cope.

I'm planning on doing little dioramas of the doll and some others, depictions of being chronically ill and still living life. If you know an adult or child this might entertain, I have an insta called barbieposer.
