A little depressed today...

I´ve been battling depression my whole life... there are days when I´m actually very happy or at least stable, but other days the most insignificant thing send me back to depressionland...


I´ve been away from home for almost a week now and I thought I was going to be very happy with my family but I can´t stop feeling homesick... besides my sister just broke off with her boyfriend and seeing her sad makes me even sadder... And I miss my husband!... Anyway... I hope I will feel better tomorrow...



By the way, I made a new collage today that depics my mood today and my sister´s heartache.

Hello! I just discovered you and really love your work. I was doing a search on ebay for "altered art" in an attempt to research how I should word my own entries and one of your pieces came up. I was immediately attracted to your gorgeous collages. Reminded me of Pam Garrison and Stacy Rife but darker (which is more to my taste!). I read your profile and found your blog and loved seeing your other work and a little window into your life. I wanted to comment on your recent post on battling depression but i see that comments are not active in your blog so I thought I'd email you. Hang in there! I've also battled depression (along with most of the members of my family!) and I know exactly how debilitating it can be. I loved the collage you did in response to your emotions and bid on it on ebay. I hope I'm lucky enough to get it though I might not be able to afford it if it goes too high!

I think you have a beautiful, innocent and texture-filled style. I'm so glad I found you. I remember feeling this excited about art when I ran across Misty Mawn's ladies a while back but I like yours better. She's moved into a new style that's not my cup of tea.

Anyways... this is probably out of the blue for you. But I wanted you to know that someone's checking out your presence on the web and feeling connected. Keep your eyes on your daughter. My son brings me out of the worst funks. He's 9 months old now.

take care!

Hi Danita, just now saw your last blog entry, so just wanted to say hang in there. Bet you're already having a better day today! and your mood has not affected your making art which is good :-) .

I got my hair cut this week too! a surprise for me because I've had a little boy cut for years now, but finally am growing it out, yuk, but it was long enough to get a trim, yay!

love your new paintings, hope you have a wonderful weekend, keep
painting, it soothes the soul...

Hello, I hope I am not out of line in sending this email to you. I think you do AWESOME work. Your work has a very sweet innocence about them. I just wanted to comment to you regarding your depression. I know things weighed heavy on my mind for a long time. And each persons depression is different. But, what helped me was when I read this book called Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyers . Maybe you can try reading it as well. Take care, I know we don't know each other but, if you every want to email me or call me to talk I am available.

Smiles,
Elaine

If you know the power that your words have on me... I think the word thank you is not enough sometimes, they should invent a new, longer one.
