Comfort. by azuzephre Comfort. by azuzephre
I've been having some pretty hardcore anxiety attacks lately. They kept getting worse, so I went to a psychiatrist for help, and he told me to keep myself busy with things I like to do. Danielle, Liz, Hannah, and some of my other friends have been really supportive, and Danielle takes me out for coffee pretty much at least once a day. Hehehe. It really helps because I'm not in the mood to do things that would usually make me happy. I've just barely started drawing again, I don't have any new cello sheet music, and yeah. Coffee trips with people have basically been keeping me from falling apart. I don't know if it's because I'm currently sort of emotionally unstable or because I've got some awesome friends, but I get weak when I think about what they've been doing to keep me from crashing. I loooove you guys, seriously. <3 Once I get back into a creative mood, I'll finish the picture I'm drawing of all of us. hehehe.

I keep mixing up the traditional with the digital. Or is it vice-verse? It is so well collaborated that it is successful either way. I like the sepia colors too.

I love it, I can't say I suffer from anxiety and relate to you like everyone else but I can tell you I suffer from a general fear of life haha, but I think we all do. My uncle used to have sever panic attacks and it wa hard to even watch so I can't imagine what your going through, and I really wish you the best and a quick recovery, as no one deserves something like this! I know I'm probably the least helpful person with the least helpful comment but..I hope it helps! OH and on topic, I love your art, especially the small details liek the pinkey, the seams on the jacket/pants, the eyebrow piercing, etc.

And last but not least, a couch for comfort! :couch:

I can totally relate to the anxiety thing. All i can say is to find something that your whole self goes numb during, something that you don't think or feel, you just are. On a second note, I hope you feel better! I hate anxiety attacks, and I'm terrified of medications, so I'm 100% understanding where you're at. Lastly, though, your art is beautiful!

I know how you feel. :( Life can be insanely difficult to get through and can take such cruel turns. But it's really good that you have such amazing friends, and I hope they always help you, because you definitely seem like the sort of person who deserves to be happy. :) Good luck.

Aw, that's very cute. I adore the pants.
And, my personal for the anxiety (As I have issues with axiety as well) is to try and keep things even. Don't try to do too much, or schedule too much for yourself.(It works for me, but then again, mine are few and in between)

This is so cute... I really like the watermark-esk parts. I used to get panic attacks too... after a time, it gets better, often lots less frequent. (I've been doing Tai Chi for a while and that seems to help too.) Anyhoo, this is a gorgeous piece and though I don't know you, the world's better when her inhabitants are happy and sane... (Kat-speak for I hope you feel better). :hug:

You are very creative with your textures. It reminds me of a koi shirt I love.

I don't have anxiety, but I have depression and dealing with it can be just awful. I'm glad your friends are being supportive.

I really love this one, i'm checking you're gallery, and I'm loving it. This is so nice, the colors, I love the colors, the style. I love how you use the scales of one tone (alltough, i don't know if that's how you say it in english). I had panic attacks, few years ago, and i attend to a psycologist, who gives cellular memory therapy, and it just rocks. I got them because in highschool, i used to be really active from 7:00am to 11:00pm, because i studied at a conservatori at the same time, but when higschooll ended, i had my activity time cuted to the half, then i got depressed for that, and the attacks begun. I haven't got an attack since 4 years, and i'm really ok, but I can't drink coffe, because it makes me anxious, ha paradoxicaly. And yes when you're friends help it's so much easy.

Uhh... you play the cello, you drink coffee, for some reasons these colors speak to me, you DRAW for god's sake... yep. Favorite - based on the picture and your description (the positive side to it).

This was a few months ago, but I hope you're feeling better by now :] I'm really, really impressed that you got help for yourself instead of ignorantly passing it off.
