I am a 24-year old living in Melbourne, and I suffer from mental health issues. I have recently overcome depression, and am currently working through Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (check out my blog at http://www.taleofnyathera.blogspot.com/). A lot of the time, I'm fine, but when I'm not, its easy for me to feel overwhelmed and isolated.
When I'm not defined by mental health problems, I am a passionate, excitable, cheeky thing that adores crafting, the internet, and being involved with community stuff. I'm vegan, adore eating great food, am a foster carer for sick puppies, and have a brilliant partner and fluffy family of dogs and cats. I also constantly travel- I've been around the world twice and in June am heading off again.
I am looking for people who would be interested in any of the following:
- Other people into craft that suffer from Mental Health issues and who may be interested in getting together to do crafty things;
- Craftsters willing to meet up and do crafty things with me to keep me inspired;
- Crafsters the world over who are willing to keep in touch with me about crafty things; or
- Any kind of support/love from the crafting community.
I am in no way looking for people with specific skills related to Mental Health- I have a great management plan and function quite well. What I'm looking for is to connect to others in the worldwide community who are either experiencing similar things or are sympathetic to mental health stuff and are up for creating a great new crafty friendship.
I look forward to hearing from you!
