These sorts of threads are common on the Diagnosed section of the forum. @GSSP maintains a personal thread of his works and occasionally posts pop up on the How Are You Doing Today thread sharing creations.
I feel sometimes this forum suffers from a tyranny of words. And I’m more guilty than most. Although writing factored into my recovery, music making and acting played a bigger role, and with greater impact. But before I could make music, I listened to music. I searched for the perfect song that fit a particular thought or feeling and listened to it endlessly on repeat, or formed elaborate playlists. I’m in awe of poets and lyricists who can condense thoughts and feelings down to a handful of words, and composers who can convey complex feelings and moods without a word.
Later I learned to sing those songs. I’ve always been vaguely musically talented, but I’ve struggled with ways to share it. So this thread is my attempt. And if anything I’m a collaborator. I rarely post my own threads here, I mostly comment on other ones. I feel this is a forum for all caregivers not a personal blog, and my viewpoint is unique, so it’s more polite to chime in where I can, rather than lead with an agenda.
That’s my wordy way of saying: feel free to post songs, poems, artwork or anything else that you feel a caregiver might want or need to read, see, feel or hear. Or maybe talk about books or movies you felt were helpful, got you through the day, or expressed how you think or feel. Original artwork or crafts are welcome too.
