So, I'm pretty sure that everyone has seen the "I Have A Disease" swaps going 'round, so, why don't we have one for the mentally challenged/ill/problematic/etc.? Some examples of what would make you qualify are: depression, bipolar, autism and so on. I personally have Asperger syndrome(mild autism), and I'm on anti-anxiety tablets. So, what do you all think? If there's a bit of interest, I can organize in about two months Smiley

Well, first of all, I think we all qualify in some way for this one, but I just wish wish wish my aunt was hooked up to the Internet (she's had severe depression and disassociative identity disorder for a long time and was just diagnosed with MS....needless to say, she's not taking it well, especially with a husband who also has severe depression and obsessive compulsive disorder)......actually, could I enter the swap for my relatives? It's a genetic wonder the psychological stuff in my bloodlines!

Okay....long-winded, but yes this would be a cool swap  Cheesy

I think it would be excellent to join for other people, especially others that aren't able to craft for instance. It would also decrease the likeliness of people dropping out, which would be good all-round. Smiley

I understand that timing would be a rather important issues in a swap of this nature, so I'll try and make it a time that is suitable for the majority of people interested Smiley

Well, things like pill boxes, journals, puzzles(I know a LOT of people who love puzzles)/games, blankets, Basically anything that would help people cope/keep them entertained I guess... I'm not really too sure, I guess we could all work something out. We could even make stuff like t-shirts that say "I'm Mentally Disturbed" Cheesy or something, I guess it really depends on who you're swapping with. Hope that made sense, it barely made sense to me Wink

blankets & journals are 2 of the ideas i had thought of too. maybe cute things that will make you smile... whatever you're into or little plushie/amiguri type things? tea/coffee stuff, calming stuff like lavendar or homemade soaps or something... i don't know about the tshirt idea because i wouldn't want to draw attention to myself.. i'm all outta ideas though!
