Where are the folks who do art for their own healing purposes?  I am a person with disabilities and I have found that I can turn a bad day into a great day with my work.  I am looking for like minded people.

Hi Peggy, I too use art as a part of my therapy. I had an injury that left me in terrible pain 9 years ago. I find painting and various other mediums takes me away from my pain. It kind of washes my brain of distractions for the time I am painting.

Hi Peggy. I have an auto immune disease called sarcoidosis. Somedays, when I am having pain, and am able, I go into my studio and create. I love the creating process and it helps me take my mind off of my pain. Depression comes along with this disease and it lifts my mood to work in my art projects.

Also, if your are grieving or in that process, art also will help with coping with the loss.
