Art from FM and ME/CFS artists describing their experiences
How do I add art to this album? In the comments?
It's been a while since I originally posted so I can't remember for sure how I did it! Ha! I think though.... that maybe it was the small blue button "Add Media" towards the top right of the page. (Just to the left of the search box.) Try that and see if it works.
I can't wait to see other people's stuff here! Surely we can fill up an album with creativity!!!
Looking forward to your additions!
Yes - it's the Media button and then go to Albums and the Art album will pop up.

All of my work here was created after I had to leave work because of CFS/fibromyalgia. A couple of themes run through my work after becoming ill. I started with love, anger, euphoria, depression as the main theme. I was channeling the extreme emotions that came with losing so much.
Later, I turned to the heart as my theme. I was (and am) struggling with finding hope, love, and passion even with CFS.
My latest work is about the life force that is the ocean. I was born near the Pacific and find it a restful retreat from illness. I go there when I need to "go home" and remember earlier happy times. Virginia is my grandmother, who suffered greatly from Fibromyalgia, called rheumatism at the time. Heart's Escape is about how CFS makes me feel. It says, "I have no wings to fly. I am bound in this spot evermore". Inside the cage is a floor made of ocean, a place to escape to internally when I can't go physically.
Thanks Kevin - I got it
