HI! lovely to meet you, sorry about the circumstance, but everyone here is super supportive and understanding. Just wanted to welcome you- im also 'arty'! Im a high school teacher with a degree in Visual Arts and Graphic Design. I do darkroom photography and mixed media pieces. I love oil pastels as well.
Welcome and I hope you hang around,
Welcome to HealingWell. This is a great site. I look forward to getting to know you better.
I have had depression and anxiety for 27 years now and I can tell you that with medication and therapy I have done very well most of the time. It is in accepting that you have a disorder that will come and go at will and arming yourself with tools to deal with the depression that make it easier to get through the low times in your life.
You will read many success stories and also stories from members that are on the road to healing. You will find the support you need here so please do keep posting.
We love to have new members join us.
With kindest personal regards,
