This is how it feels when I have a breakdown / episode. It’s an agonising, desolate, godforsaken place. All my pain culminates in that moment and overwhelms me. It’s the truth. I can’t hear you, but I can feel you. Reach out and touch me. That’s how you’ll bring me back. #bpd #borderlinepersonality #depression #anxiety #therapy #schematherapy #dbt #psychology #mentalillness #MentalHealthAwareness #traumanotpd #EndTheStigma #GraphicMedicine #narrativemedicine #illustration  #mentalhealthart #breakdown #ReachOut  #shareyourstory #keeptalkingmh #howamifeeling #dbtskills #laydeezdocomics #mentalhealth #help #touch #mindmonsters #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #personalitydisorder @pdanarts #arttherapy

Regrann from @brightside_bear -  This quote was said to me last night and it was something I really needed to hear 💙 We need to let the bad emotions go... Those words even inspired me to draw this 🌊 .

Thank you for the support on my journey to learn how to draw! It has been a VERY long time since I’ve tried to draw something and I felt a little awkward at first. BUT I kept going 🌊 Please share what you are learning with #BraveBearShare - I would absolutely love to see it 😍😍

It’s a new piece... I don’t really like it, but... whatever... I’ve lost my mojo a bit - I’m thinking too much and not feeling enough when drawing. But that’s ok, I don’t need to push it and I must try not to judge it. It is what it is.

I’ve always been drawn to people that are a little different. They are the spice of life that truly make the world go round. So many artists, icons, geniuses, and entrepreneurs are a little out there to say the least. They’ve learned to embrace who they really are. What an interesting world we would live in if we could all do this. And how much more at ease would we feel in our own skin, if we could take off the mask and just be real, honest and authentic. Here’s to being more you! Tag a friend if you love their uniqueness! #youareloved #bipolar #bipolarbear #positiveselftalk #youdeservehappiness #whynotnow #yourlifematters #notbrokenjustbent #youareloved #mentalhealthart #mentalillnessmemes #mentalhealthwarrior #gentlementals

Inspired by Mental Health Awareness Month. Sometimes it feels like we are in chains, being dragged into a darkness from which we can't escape. And yet look away from the darkness, and there are people reaching for you. You can ask for help, and even more importantly you are worth helping. There is hope, there is love, and there is light. .

A few weeks ago I posted the original 'mapping' of our headspace we made when we first started seeing out psych. After a few months, and communication w/i ourselves, we decided to try to make a new one, including newly discovered alters that we weren't aware of before. It's not laid out like this in our space, but these are pieces of their areas. Our cat alter lives in Kitty's (little alter) space with her. Avery wanted to be pictured in her space, and white is non-verbal and very young, so we put her face there so she's represented as well. #dissociativeidentitydisorder #dissociativeidentity #did #didart #dissociativeidentitydisorderart #arttherapy #didsystem #didselfportrait #crayonart #crayon #darkart #darkartists #art #artastherapy #pencil #markers #coloredpencil #mixedmediaart #headspacemap #dissociadid #dissociativesystemmap #systemmap

“Perfectly Vulnerable”
Sometimes to see our own true beauty we need to allow ourselves to be perfectly vulnerable, show up exactly as we are and know that that is more than enough.

Preliminary sketch...Do you feel alone and scared sometimes? So, haven’t posted in an age, because I’ve been crazy busy with all the job documents required to move to South Korea and teach English for a year. I leave in a week’s time, and suddenly I felt the need to draw my...nervousness, I suppose. Follow to see it finished!

Feeling invincible 🚀like nothing is an obstacle. Sooo many ideas "Yeh I can save the world!" 💡
.
I feel so alive, as if I could fly. "Nothing can touch me, bish bash bosh...
WOOHOOO!" 🎢
.
"Fuck, I've spent all my money and it's Tuesday and I can't remember a thing..."
.
4 days later, 20 odd missed calls & a backpack of shame, regret and 'floor please open up and swallow me whole...'
.
When you're feeling invincible, the highs always seem to end in a BIG low.
.
Sinking inwards, connecting & expanding awareness is all I need now. I still feel invincible, but that's 'cause I'm high on life; the best kind of high. A constant flow of highs 🌱
.
I'm here, I'm there & everywhere, where else do I need to go? 🌌😊

My soul feels so exhausted from the weight of my past, and deeply exhausted from reliving that past every day. I feel way to old AND way to young. I feel trapped inside a body that lives in the nightmares of my past. I close my eyes but it's still there. This ineffable sadness, my constant companion
.
Some days I feel like I will drown in sadness.
I'm not talking about depression. I’m talking about sadness that resides in the depths of my soul.
.
I will be with my friend chatting over a cup of coffee, or watching a funny movie with my husband when, with the force of a semi truck, I’m struck by this desperate sadness. I try to fight it, I try to not let it steal the moment, my laughter, my joy, but all my attempts feel empty and fake.
.
My instinct is to turn off, but I know its best to ride out the wave of emotion. It will pass, and yes it will come again. But I cling to the joy that God does bring into my life. Those moments shine all the brighter because of the darkness.
.
Maybe there will always be sadness in my eyes but I know this sadness, and it does not have the power to extinguish the fire burning in my soul to fight this battle.

After a miraculous weekend at the Hyde Park Street Fair, I’m ready to start anew.
My focus: to action some of the remarkable feedback that I enthusiastically received at this event. 
I have chosen to display most of the paintings that were favorited by the majority of those who were in attendance.
Thank you immensely to all those who have stepped with me on this creative journey.

On the next few pictures that I'll be posting, I'll be showing the same drawing but with different distortion on it. The topic is about depression  and how it can make you feel when you are at the lowest of the lowest  or when you are feeling nothing at all. Let me know how you feel about it on the comments section. ❤

We’re all human. 
As medical professionals sometimes we forget that self-care is the first essential step in being able to provide good care to others. 
Each patient, each event that happens in our personal lives, each encounter that we have every single day takes a piece of us, breaks us down, and sometimes can shatter us. 
Usually a deep breath, a good cup of coffee, or a 5 minute vent session can put those pieces back together. But in those moments where we shatter, we need to remember to take just a little more time to rebuild ourselves. .

Raise your hand if you try to control the outcome like me. 🙋🏼‍♀️ I like how singer/songwriter JJ Heller called it being an “outcomes manager”. It made me wonder how much I try to control outcomes and how frustrating it can feel when the outcome I want doesn’t happen. So maybe a good question is “how can I have goals and hold the outcome more loosely?”

So maybe a good question is “how can I have goals and hold the outcome more loosely?” . On the The Pivot podcast episode 039: @jjhellermusic with @andrewosenga. . #25daysofsummerbotanicals  . Day 69/100 This drawing is part of #the100DayProject : this time I’m drawing botanicals for 100 days with an iPad Pro, an Apple Pencil and the Procreate app. Some of my drawings are available as prints or printables in my shop, go to thehandcraftedstory.com or follow the links in my profile. . If you want to join along, you can paint, collage, embroider, take photos or whatever you want and use #100daysofbotanicalimages  . See more of my project: #100DaysOfAnikaDrawingBotanicals

And this... connects to my previous art post - it’s the other half of a two page spread. The box the puzzle came from. And as with its other half, this one has begun to take on a whole new meaning - hope, rebuilding and recovery, and indeed, freedom instead of collapse, breakdown, hopelessness and confusion.

Volevo chiarire a tutti quelli che guardano i miei disegni (quindi forse a una o due persone ahah) che non sono affatto una persona triste e disperata come può sembrare. Anzi, quando sono da sola sono spesso felice e piena di cose da fare. Utilizzo i disegni e il tempo speso a disegnare per conoscermi meglio e piacermi sempre di più. Autoinvestigarmi è una cosa molto divertente e spesso autolesionista, ma se non lo facessi non avrei nessun caosdichela da disegnare 🦀🌕

My work is going to be exhibited in a zine soon, alongside a main work for In Sickness and Stealth's All The Feels - a fundraiser for future accessible creative events for people with mental illness, chronic illness and disabilities. 🖌🖼💱🔮Located at Loop Project Space and Bar, 23 Meyers Place, Melbourne! The fundraising will go towards making spaces more accessible for people with mental disabilities and ongoing art projects.🙏🏼🎭 Super happy that this important side project has wriggled its way into this year's ruthless pragmatism.

🌞🌚✨ a magical week spent with magical people, new and old faces. Dancing in the rain, dancing in the sea, dancing at the dinner table and a constant flow of giggles and most importantly an enormous amount of love and respect. To my girly girls, I love you and thank you for keeping me grounded (and lifting me up off the ground when I fall over), I love you and this ones for you ♥️ @sunandbassofficial until next year xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Avocado interrupts your regularly scheduled timeline with an important message. (This was originally part of a WIP, but I ended up doodling this over it instead. I have no regrets.) .

Shawn Coss is one of my favorite artists...
He perfectly depicts what the inner turmoil of these mental disorders looks like. After studying abnormal psychology, I realized how many psychologists don’t want to work with the more “distressing” disorders such as schizophrenia to dissociative personality disorder.
So hence the reason that I’m striving for my bachelors now, but will eventually get my Masters and gain my PHD in Abnormal Psychology. I want to be able to help people with these types of disorders. No matter the risk. Because everyone deserves a chance to be healed and healthy. •

Trigger Warning
.
It’s ironic I was saving this one for today AND even for the fact for the walk being this weekend.
.
I woke up today feeling suicidal. I don’t know what I did. I’ve been having rocky days since two Fridays ago. I’ve been on energy and emotional rollercoaster. Every night I can’t sleep being my brain is wide and loud. Eventually I fall asleep thanks for my tendency for hypersomnia.
.
It just got bad this morning so irritable and wanted to get revenge on all the people who just pass by me. When I realized I was starting to plan and was actually figuring out stuff, I made myself to sew.
.
It’s sometimes so annoying art can distract everything that I almost feel numb. Rather than enjoying doing art, I’m working on them like a programmed machine. I do what I do and just do, nothing else.
When I do arts and craft, my pain diminishes, cramp disappear, all noises gone. It goes a little extreme and I can erase hunger and thirst too.
.
Anyway my count is back to zero. It’s been over a year. But even those stable days, I’ve never got that life appreciation though. I’m just gliding through because that’s what I can do.

Robin,

Walking from here to there… I am barely

I stand on the curve, feeling cars whoosh past me. I pray that they hit me. But I keep my feet planted until the light turns green.

I follow the people in front of me. I look only at their feet. One in front of the other. My hands stay in my pockets, holding onto my posessions. This is enough to ground me. For now.

Walking from here to there, I am barely able to accomplish this. But I did. And I am still here.

Perhaps that is something. Perhaps I am something. But I doubt that.

Ripley

Glitter girl from outer space!
GREY: It all piles up. That not enough sleep feeling, that not enough hours feeling. The days tick by and my to do list grows longer. I don't know what I did yesterday. I don't take my meds on time. The grime pools in my brain and I don't remember what I'm supposed to do next.

I am organising a new project to tie in to World Mental health day.
On sun 7th Oct I will will be attaching "Hearts of hope" to the entrance of a local park. Others are welcome to attach their own message ♡ 
First few made today ♡ 
The aim is to encourage conversation around #mentalhealth. Messages of hope and inspiration and to stamp on #Stigma ♡ 
The messages will be removable so that people people struggling will be abke to take them - or that someone who knows someone can take one to give to someone. The aim is that within the week they will have all gone to hands that need hope ♡ 
Joint the facebook group here https://www.facebook.com/groups/278903099335095/

Personal connection for me and anybody else who feels that they don't fit in. It's okay to be different.

To me, it's like comparing to your own art style. You feel like your style is not good enough, but you gotta appreciate your own artwork because your audience is seeing something different and seeing a piece of you. Be proud of yourself because you created your own design.

Tiny oil painting in vintage medicine tin, 2017. 
A few weeks ago, I had the chance to meet up with a friend and her family. We were trying to explain to our husbands how we became friends. Was it because we were both painters and moms? Was it the joke I made, and then apologized for, that was actually all fine? She remembered, ”Oh yeah! There was also this book about happiness that you lent me, because I was depressed!” 😬
... A lot of people have had a lot of grace for me, as I've been exploring empathy towards people experiencing mental hardships. It astounds me to find how much grace people are often willing to offer when they're vulnerable, because I say, ”I don't know exactly how to help, and I’ll probably make mistakes, but I don't want you to be alone in this. Thank you for being patient with me.” 💙
