The craft community is an amazing place, and I have come to make many new friends through the world of Etsy and Twitter etc. One amazing woman I recently ‘met’ is Melissa, owner of Vintage Baby Revival and LadeeBee Supplies. Through her blog, Melissa shares stories of crafters living with mental illness, and how craft has helped them in their struggle. She recently called for guest posters willing to share their story, and I immediately thought, yes, I can do that. I’ve lived with this disease for around 15 years, surely I can write a little blog post telling my story… Little did I know how hard it would be.
Weeks later, I have finally done it. It was emotionally draining, but I did it. And while writing the article, I debated whether or not to share it here. I want my story to help others, but do I really want those I know best to know the truth? I still have my reservations, but I think that sharing my story is a good move, at the moment anyway lol Check back tomorrow and I may have differing views lol
So, if you’d like to read my story, head HERE, to Melissa’s blog, Close Knit. Be sure to check out the links in the sidebar to read the amazing stories of others struggling with mental illness, and finding the way through with craft.
