Drawing and writing has always been my outlet during the hard times.
I drew this self portrait a VERY long time ago when I was 18 and first found out that I had vaginismus.
I felt broken and vulnerable. I felt rejected by my relationship, friends and family. So, as my way of expression and escape, I drew myself with broken wings, indicating my internal struggles & emotions. The nakedness indicates my vulnerability during this moment in my life.
I recently started drawing again and have begun another image relating to my mental health and vaginismus. I’m excited to finish it and share it with all of you!
What are some ways you express how you are feeling during difficult moments in your life?
