glitter glue on crappy paper.
this is certainly not fine art, but it was an act of art therapy that helped me out a lot. i don't leave the house much and i've been ill, so no leaving at all.
i forced myself to go to the drug store because i had a medication i had to have and i was totally out of it. they said they didn't have any in stock. it's one of those, holy crap! kind of medication, so you have to use a paper prescription, they can't call it in or fax it. '
they tell me i have to go to another of their stores, far away! i went and they said the pharmacist was on effing LUNCH for an hour and she'd just left and they were closing in 2 hours. omg!!! horror story! i got so freaked going out in public at all!! i had an hour or more, because the effing head of pharmacy was the only one allowed to fill it. arghghhgh
i started to cry, just wandering around and suddenly i knew drawing would save me. i drew and drew once when i had to have a cortisone shot to my knee joint! i had nothing, a little bag with driver's licence, cash, etc. i had nothing to write on or with! i was about to really really lose it so i rushed into the drug store, looking for ANYTHING for drawing. huge store, couldn't find an effing pen in the place! suddenly i saw a crayola shelf in the toys. i grabbed some glitter glues and a shitty pad of paper. i sat on the floor by the pharmacy and drew this with my glittery glue and was completely fine. eventually they called my name and i drove home a little nervous, but i made it!
