So I feel everyone who is mentally ill should find a great therapist. Therapy is a great way and place to talk through what bothers you in your life. I have a great therapist! We have great conversations, and he is very motivating.
But sometimes, you just need something you occupy your time. Sometime time to yourself. Well, I’m a quilter! It’s like my quiet time to not think, just go and be creative. It’s a difficult task sometimes.
I can’t tell you how badly I’ve cut the tip of my finger off, accidentally of course, and many other trips to the ER! Most recent quilting accident was just 2 short months ago. I was having surgery the next day, and was stressed and needed some time to get out of my own head. Well, of course, it ended with a trip to the ER…
Here’s one of my creations.
So is quilting therapy?
For me, it is! I love to quilt, it’s a great distraction for me I get lost in my quilting for hours sometimes. It’s a great escape from my own crazy thoughts.
So do you have a hobby that you use to escape the real world?
