The second bar is wrapped 🤗 And I guess by the time I finish this yarnbombing, there will be 100 of you who follow my colourful path of recovery. I am so excited!
As you can tell it has been a few weeks since my last posts. I went through some depressive episodes and we also moved, which is an enormous task when you’re depressed. As Andrew Solomon says in his #tedtalk „The opposite of depression is not happiness, but vitality“. And I guess only people who suffered from depression themselves or people that were close to depressed people know this distinction, which makes me sad. I am afraid that I am considered to be cured when I am smiling or having fun. Depression doesn’t simply make you grumpy - it is like carrying an enormous, heavy rucksack with a little voice coming from its inside whispering that you shouldn’t even try to stand up and lift it because you are too weak anyway. It makes everyday life so much harder up to the point that you are not able to take care of yourself because it is too much effort. The good news is that you can learn how to cope with showering, cleaning your house and going to work again. It is a journey down a long and winding road but you gotta keep going, because the rucksack is getting lighter every step. #mentalhealthawareness #depressionsucks #knittingismytherapy #recovery #yarnbombing #urbanknitting #guerillaknitting #knittersofinstagram

It’s ok to not be ok! So many times we are forced to be “fine” by society, friends, family, job status....fill in your own blank. Being “fine” has become such a formal response to “how are you?” I challenge you today to take time to really assess how you really are. Embrace your true feelings and be ok with that 😉 #truthfulthursday #itsokaynottobeokay #mentalhealth #thursdaymotivation #mentalhealthawareness

Caring for and supporting someone with a mental illness is exhausting. It may be hard to live with them but it is even harder to watch somebody you care about suffering. After time this will take a toll on you and you must seek support before you are completely drained yourself.
.
You may be the only person helping them right now and in that case seek out other help. Search for groups they can attend to support them, while you take some time for yourself.
.
Hopefully you are in a position where someone can share the responsibility with you, even if it’s for shorter time. Good communication between you and this person will make supporting your loved one easier. They shouldn’t feel like they are being supervised or a burden.
.
When supporting someone with a mental health issue you must not forget to take care of your own wellbeing.

Yep, that's me at six years old. I had just gotten my first 20" BMX bike and wound up landing head (well, 👁) first on the pavement when I lost my balance because I was looking ⤵️ instead of ➡️. There's a couple huge life lessons there that I forgot a long time ago.
1) unless you keep your focus where it belongs, you're liable to end up hurt by something that wouldn't have been a danger if you'd just kept it moving ➡️.
2) if/when you fall down - yes, it hurts. There will be 🤕 and 😭. But you pick yourself up, wipe off the 💉 and 😢, and get back on the 🚲 and ride again. You don't just give up.
Six year old me know a lot more about living at 6 than I have these last ten years. He knew who he was and what he liked and didn't give a shit what anyone else thought about it. I'm learning to live that fearlessly again, and my six-year-old self just happens to be a pretty fucking good teacher.

That time Ryan and I were friends cause I introduced them before jealousy, sexuality and the pressures of life denied us a friendship based on bullshit and pressure #truth #whythfuck #beautiful #acceptance

#tbt My mum sent me boxes of family photos & memorabilia which I've been working my way through. When I first saw these photos I was upset - she looks so happy and carefree, but now I'm thinking it's a positive thing - that's who I really am! Happy, brave, confident, mischievous, cheeky and content in myself. It's still there underneath all the mental and physical issues I have - which means I can bring it back. These photos represent HOPE.

I do my best to speak of self love, of self care. I’m an encourager, I’m positive; but I’m human. I understand that life is hard, that there are moments in when we forget our worth. So this is a reminder that you are worthy. That you have everything you need, that just because you aren’t loving yourself all the time doesn’t mean your somehow less than. Some how less worthy of love. Stay on track, continue with self love and self care; but don’t loose faith, remember your worthiness in times of crisis. #Repost @spiritualmovement with @get_repost

But an interesting thing happened that I did not expect. In my silence, something bright and soft was stirring within me, wriggling to get out. I thought it was the anxiety getting the better of me; pushing me to my limit where I'd be fully overcome with the fear of being forced out of my comfort zone. But no... It wasn't that. It was my own personal fighting machine gearing up; my mind's fighting mechanism taking charge. Something inside of me was fighting to keep me from slipping back into depression, clawing it's way out desperately. Oh my God... Yes! And it was beautiful and creative and inspiring and poetic and fantastic. And to think that it was inside of me all this time just waiting to come out.

As a person who sometimes has *intense* #panicattacks I know it can feel isolating. So, I’m sharing the anatomy of my last one, hoping to provide some understanding. Plus, at the end, I give a few tips for helping someone in the middle of an #anxiety attack. 💖🙏🏻

It’s easy to get disheartened when you’re trying your best and no one gives you credit for it but remember not everyone will notice changes your making, not everyone will understand your journey but that is okay, as long as you are doing your best that’s all that matters... celebrate your own victories & achievements 🌻

Everyday you wake be proud of yourself. There's no point living in self loathing or hiding away in the darkness. There is one you. And only one. You mean something to someone. Even if one person believes in you that is enough. And if nobody believes in you I want you to know as a gay man, and a person who suffered mental illness and came out the other side, as a person who lost his whole support network who's parents gave up on him - I believe in YOU. And I care about you. And I know it gets better. It gets better everyday you are out of the closet and out of that mental purgatory of waiting for god to fix you. I believe if there is a god he wouldn't put people through so much anguish and to prove what? I believe in love. And I believe in self belief and unshakable tenacity to pick yourself up and brush yourself off, and fucking grit your teeth and fight for your truth and your identity and who you are as a person. And no matter who says no its not cool, you dont work - you get up out of bed and you be proud of yourself and the things you've accomplished. Make the fuckers think maybe they are the insecure ones that need to adjust their thinking. Maybe they need to analyse their priorities. The darkest hours in my life have been filled with a burning, searing anger and a push and an inner voice to go on.

Some people don't understand the severity and effects of depression. It drains you, it confuses you, it stops you. . #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #bipolar #deppression #anxious #paranoia

I am pleased to present the first video based on the arc of action of "Take Your Medicine," a performance presented at the first Riga International Performance Festival: Starptelpa (In-Between), in June of 2018 in Riga, Latvia at RISEBA. The video can be found at vimeo.com/290707741 or at the link in bio. The action follows two Doctor/Priests as they set up for a communion-like ritual in which they cover the Patient/Savior in honey, then cover the surface of her body in (empty) pill capsules. The Doctor-Priests call on the Public to take their medicine, and they come forward to pick a pill capsule from my skin and swallow it, which prompts the Patient/Savior to have a fit of spiritual ecstasy. This video does not convey the spoken text, comprised of excerpts from years of my writing trying to cope with mental illness, expanding into an ecological, socio-political framing of mental illness in the United States. This video also does not show very much of the projections, consisting of my paintings of chemical formulas of some of my medications, photographic self-portraits and documentation of previous performances relating to mental illness. I am currently working on a presentation that will include these other elements of the piece. Thank you to Osmedia for shooting and editing, to Andris Feodorovs and Ilgvars Ābelītis for bringing the Doctors to such vivid life, and to Laine Kristberga, curator and producer for Starptelpa. If you are interested in presenting a version of "Take Your Medicine" please message me here. #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mental #saludmental #pills #meds #medicine #depression #antidepressant #ssri #ptsd #ptsdawareness #trauma #justice #reformlajails #psychiatry #bigpharma #invisibleillness #disability #invisibledisability

I won a giveaway that The School of Life (@theschooloflifelondon) and Shelf-Awareness ran of this lovely book On Confidence and they surprised me by also including a set of confidence prompt cards. They arrived in the post yesterday and I'd just like to say a big thank you for them. The School of Life produces a whole range of fantastic books that apply philosophical wisdom to help us learn how we can best life our lives. In the book On Confidence they've drawn on various wisdom from philosophers such as Montaigne and Nietzsche, as well as artists such as Bakhuysen and Frans Hal, and many more, while discussing the subject. They also have a wonderful YouTube channel that is really worth checking out.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Confidence is something that I'm actively working on. Living with various illnesses over the years naturally dents your confidence, especially when your illnesses are mostly invisible. Agoraphobia and migraines have slowly stripped away the confidence I once had. But the brilliant thing about confidence is that it is a skill and can be learnt, and relearnt. I'm really looking forward to reading the book, and using the prompt cards, so thank you! I'll leave you with this wonderful piece of wisdom:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"An inner voice always used to be an outer voice that we have absorbed and made our own. Many of our inner voices need editing out."
