I just can't resist sharing one more inspiring project. Is there no end to the creativity of man? Here is how this group describe themselves:
"The Icarus Project envisions a new culture and language that resonates with our actual experiences of 'mental illness' rather than trying to fit our lives into a conventional framework.The Icarus Project envisions a new culture and language that resonates with our actual experiences of 'mental illness' rather than trying to fit our lives into a conventional framework."
Those of us who live with a mental illness can certainly understand the idea of feeling like they do not fit in anywhere. Mental illness is isolating among other things. Here is a group attempting to make it less so.
You may want to check it out and find out how you can get involved. This list is long, from receiving emails to taking part in forums.
'Friends Make the Best Medicine' is a good idea they have initiated encouraging us to start a group in our area. I am thinking about this one....
I am doing so much research for my new blog 'Depression Getaway' which I hope to get underway sometime in February. I cannot resist sharing some of the neat things I have discovered. Let me know if any of them interest you!
May dipsy doodling around depression
be better than a therapy session!
Don't give up,
I'm praying for you!
