Drawing from a small episode

Due to stress at work and beginning medication (quetiapine), I feel like I am having to 'manage' my mental health more than ever at the moment.

Sometimes the ball of emotion inside me becomes so big it feels unbearable...that's when I have to draw as a way of:

1. articulating it

2. releasing it.

Drawing is a way of being able to cope and retain some sense of control. I was inundated with positive feedback when I shared this drawing on Twitter a few days ago.  my drawings.

Drawing I did during a small episode. 

 I would love to know if you draw as a way of helping yourself.

I am also curious as to whether anyone experiences strong urges to express themselves during an episode. I would love to hear from you in the comments section or via Twitter @TalkingAboutBPD.
