97 – Inspiring
I have faced many obstacles in my life such as getting divorced, having a car accident, and especially being diagnosed with mental illness. I have a diagnosis of bipolar-disorder with depressive episodes. I have found that by using art as therapy, I have been able to minimize my co-dependence and depression. I have been able to self-teach some art techniques and aid in my recovery. Art helps to lessen my mood swings and helps to express my feelings.
