Susie, I just wanted to let you know that your art work as well as your blog are very inspiring and I want to thank you for sharing your story and your beautiful art. It was shared on FB by a friend of mine. I loved the painting that first caught my eye is the one that says, “I am enough.” You see I suffer from major depressive disorder, panic disorder, anxiety, PTSD, and agoraphobia. I rarely leave my house and spend most of my days and time in bed, depressed and anxious. No medication has helped. Your painting resonated with me, as did your blog. Your story of taking on the challenge presented to you no matter what you currently have going on in your life at this moment is very inspiring to me. I wish I had your strength. I am a spiritual person, that is what has kept me alive with this disease as long as it has. However I’ve wasted so many years of my life in this darkness, it’s become overwhelming and I know that somehow something has to change somehow. I’m been doing the best that I can, praying a lot and taking life one day at a time. I just had to thank you for sharing your art as well as your story of perseverance. God bless you!! Many people can benefit from your art and story.
Wow, Linda, thank you so much for your kind words and for sharing your story here. Taking this challenge on was really out of the norm for me; I just felt I needed SOMEthing to push me to create more, because when I am creating I am at my best – content & excited to see what I can do, whether it’s painting, drawing, or creating jewelry. It’s been a really rough year and a half, and my art really is MY therapy. I hope you find an outlet, Linda, when you’re feeling the darkness, whether it be creatively, reaching out to friends or family, or whatever helps you feel better.
I hope to hear from you again, and really wish you lots of light & positive energy…❤️
