yay! im so excited people are replying to this post, i feel like al lof you are my neighbors and we just gotta walk across the street to get to know each other. after reading the above posts i feel like wha ti put is kinda silly, not much solid info so i think im gonna add more.
i have my bachelors degree in fine arts and my masters degree in art education. i took 2 years off to heal mentally and physically after CD and Bipolar took hold of me but im starting to get back in the world now. I am substitute teaching now and its hard but i like it. i think once i have my very own class ill love it. i also teach art lessons at a local art store, its not much but its a job:) im VERY proud of myself that im out in the world again after 2 years of being a shut in and that im making money and i have to take less of it from my parents. (i live at home). and i love going to therapy i think that a few times she has saved my life and i just enjoy being able to talk guilt free about myself for 45 minutes without havng to have a real conversation.
ok thats prolly more than anyone wants to know about me but i felt the need to add something more serious about my life.
keep em coming!!!
it really does factor in on what i do but usually in a different way than you suggested. definitely i have "dark" and "llight" periods and when im manic i have just crazy times when i go off on a project like theres no tomorrow. the way it affects me most is apathy. i have so little inspiration now, i have the URGE to make things but nothing to make. if that makes any sense. its soemthing im trying to work out but fortunatley im in a good place with my bipolar im well managed and am pretty even but its always day to day, especially with anxiety. its really a really unpredictable diesase, like CD and you never know what youre gonna wake up with.
and btw thank you for saying that about the courage. it takes a LOT and im trying really hard :)
