Journaling Dark Moments

Today I would like to share with you a moment of honesty. 
            
I suffer from mental health issues in the shape of depression, anxiety and, at times, suicidal thoughts.
                            
Art journaling at times of crisis, by Sam Lewis AKA The Crippled Crafter
Expressing feelings in a creative way can help make order of the jumbled and distressing thoughts swirling around in your mind in moments of crisis.
               
For the most part I have at least part of my issues under control, with the help of my GP and the charity MIND
