Elaine tells us how craft has helped her during depression.
I live in constant pain and there are many times I can’t leave the house. I have suffered severe depression over the years. If I didn’t have crafts to keep me focused and amused. Especially CALs and Facebook groups who share their crafts I would be isolated and very lonely. To make something beautiful and share the joy with online friends is priceless.
I think it is important that people know that a lot of crafters use craft as a tool to keep themselves well and that a craft community is one of the best therapies there is.
