The most difficult barriers I have encountered in life have been connected to my health issues, not the least of which have been my struggles with Schizo-Affective Disorder. There have been many people who have not always been accurate when they hear of my dilemma. I think those types of barriers have been the most difficult part of being ill. Confusion often comes, which brings misunderstandings, which bring anxiety, which leads to physical problems, etc.
My recovery has come from clearing up a
lot of this confusion by communication. Art
has been an extremely important tool in
overcoming the barriers of communication for
me. As the understanding has been nurtured,
so has the comfort of lessening anxiety and
depression. My art has allowed to me to
become more independent because I am free
to be myself as a whole person.
