Being former military, I know a lot of people have mental health conditions, including many creative people. And, I’d be lying if I said that I was without my own mental health concern.
Like many others out there, I’ve been in some pretty dark corners in my life. And, my how my life has changed since the days before I became medicated!
In an effort to become more stable, I began addressing “trouble” areas that began (or were exacerbated), while on my way to getting a diagnosis.
A good example of something I began working on (with some professional intervention), was my becoming more effective in my communication.
Diagnosis or no diagnosis, what kinds of things have you personally worked through that have had a favorable impact on your mental health?
