:bulletblue: ItDoesNotHaveMe is an awareness group on deviantART started by opioid after unexpected but incredibly positive feedback for her Lyme Disease article on dA's editorial news. It is a place where artists coping with illness--either physical or mental, their own or a loved one's--can seek out a headquarters for awareness and expression.

:bulletblue: ItDoesNotHaveMe is based on a kind of positivity that can be brought about by a single catharsis: the arts. Joining the group only requires adding it to your devwatch, and adding work requires merely sending a note and a link. The group's "favourites gallery" acts as its member gallery, showcasing art that artist-members have specifically identified as dealing with the pain and frustrations of less than perfect health.

☆ Happenings ☆

Thank you for the new year/holiday wishes everyone.

Unfortunately my depression is extremely bad at the moment, and I'm realizing more and more my environment is not helping things. Almost every person I'm in contact with offline is either an alcoholic or has a drinking problem among other similarly bad things. I'm essentially watching people slowly killing themselves.

I honestly feel like the only person I know who can have a drink once and a while and be like, okay, I'm good (and even that has become unappealing to me now because of this) without this need to get drunk. I realize it can be a sickness, I'm not trying to trivialize that, but there has to be a point where education and just common sense kicks in and tells you hey, your liver is screaming, your body is literally making you vomit to get rid of poison and you're kind of going to die if you don't stop. Even if that means admitting it's gotten to a point beyond your control and you need outside help; there's no shame in that, but denial seems to go hand in hand with it.

I'm glad I haven't picked up these horrible habits, but having everyone around you effected by it seems just as bad in its own way, and I'm finding it harder and harder to deal with. Sleep is my escape and has become my life lately, like I'm subconsciously trying to get away from it all. I feel like I'm reaching my limit.

The one silver lining is my partner has made it their new years resolution to quit smoking. I'm going to try and make that and helping them my focus point for now.

:damphyr: I'm savagebinn, but you can call me Binny. You may recognize me from my time on the CR Team here on dA, taking care of the Anthro Gallery with Katmomma and Pixel-Spotlight.

:damphyr: I'm an artist of no particular genre. I do a lot of fantasy, sci-fi, fan art and anthro based work, with other odds and ends to be found in between.

:damphyr: I love animals, the arts, rainy days and a good cup of tea.

:star: Questions? Please see my FAQ! Thanks!

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!<3
