I love the concept of Art Therapy. For years, before I was diagnosed bipolar I used to think of my painting as a better form of tranquilizer. I could paint and stay at it for 12 hours straight, and time never passed. Then I would get up in a couple of hours and go to work. Sound a bit manic? I never went a day or two without painting, or "arting" in some way. That was before Lithium. I haven't painted for 7 months, though my easel stays up, with canvas, for encouragement. None yet. I don't need to fix myself, with art. I think I need to "unfix" myself to welcome my friend back. I guess I'm not so fixed afterall, this certainly feels like the down-side. I am very happy for those that have found this creative sense for help. Sorry for the slump.
