I was recently diagnosed with schizo-affective disorder (which is what depressed me into gaining most of my weight back). I don't know if it's the medication, or a feeling of "what to do now?" but I've been so restless! I started beading to calm down--boy does that work! Beading is one of the only things I can keep at for hours these days; and it's really taking off: I have over a hundred pieces done, I'm working on getting a shop set up online, and some of my pieces are in a local antiques, gifts, and collectibles shoppe. I'm keeping busy with updating the facebook page for it; and my parents and friends have been so supportive and encouraging! I'm very excited about where to go from here, and about learning more skilled ways of expressing myself through my work (ie. play)!
Now...to just insert more exercise between beading sittings!!! ;D
