I don’t know how much I’ve talked about it on this blog, but I suffer from both bipolar ii and an anxiety disorder. I don’t read about them very often because it’s hard to find someone who talks about being mentally ill with a sense of humor. However, Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson is that book and that person. This book means so much to me. I’m on my second re-read, and underlining passages that mean a lot to me. She describes what it’s like to be mentally ill so so well, and inspires me so much as someone who has mental health stuff to work through and would like to be an author someday.
So here are three art pieces I did with quotes from her book. I hope you enjoy them.
