A few days ago Nichole at Through a Stronger Lens wrote about her experience trying out my color therapy self portrait. I was really touched by her post, and her husband's reaction to her drawing. Here's the link to her blog post, and here's the link to my original post. I also did another piece that I posted with my guest post on Red, White, and Grew that you can see here. I considered doing another one yesterday, when I was dealing with the emotions and memories and triggers of talks about suicide. (That blog post here.) But thankfully writing that out helped me enough, and having gotten it out of my system, I feel much better today than I would have if I had held it all in.
A special thanks to my husband who let me go through the emotions I was dealing with without trying to fix it or take offense at my attitude last night.
I promised I wouldn't let these posts take over my blog, and I'm not going to. Back to happy, cute pictures of the boys learning tomorrow, I promise.
If you have tried out the color therapy and are willing to share, I would love to see it. If you blog about it, I'll share it, or if you just want to leave a comment.
And if you're wondering how anyone who deals with depression can possibly homeschool, here's the blog post I wrote about that.

The following was written inspired by the possible suicide of Robin Williams and a friend's post imploring mourners to reach out to others dealing with depression during this time so that maybe something good could come out of this tragedy. The following is about my own experience with this topic.
