By talking about these things (CFS has run in my family for 4 generations) and not sugar coating them you are helping many people. The condtions often don't get better but you get better at dealing with them (I speak as a woman with a grown child and teenager). So thank you both for posting.

Thank you so much for sharing this, Gege! I, too, battle with anxiety and depression, and I am firm believer in creative therapy. It is so good to know I'm not alone!

I really enjoyed this post. I have dealt with anxiety & panic attacks all my life as well. When i learned how to crochet i noticed less & less episodes of anxiety. My mind is able to focus on things crafty & the simple movements of crocheting are calming. I think it is more effective then any medications or relaxing techniques i have tried before. Im so thankful that i found crocheting!

Gege, Reading your post really touched me. I have suffered with severe depression for 18 years, and thanks to medication I am able to survive this illness. Quilting, crochet and knitting have been my lifesaver ... they somehow calm my soul and make life easier to manage. I have neglected my quilting, but you have motivated me to to pick it up again. Thank you for being so honest ... just by doing that, you are an amazing person. I also admire Kim, and her ability to deal with her illness. Hugs. Quiltingbee.

Wow, what a post! I have been dealing with depression for about a year now, and I taught myself to knit as well to get through the hard times. I also have just joined the gym to deal with it as well! thanks so much for sharing, and I would love to follow you on your own blog to see how things are with you!
