Hi,my name is Deanna George, I was born in Grafton and am an ATSIDNQ member in Brisbane.
I have struggled all my life with mental illness brought on by childhood trauma, and I struggle every day to keep my mind healthy.
I take medication daily to help me manage my mentail illness and adapt by keeping a low stress environment. I have learned my triggers over the years and have learned to set healthy boundaries and make self-care a top priority.
One of the ways I have learned to do this is throught weaving and artwork. This is a picture of one of my weavings. I love to paint in a range of mediums and I haverecently learned to weave with my "mindfulness" psychologist, who has been amazing. I looking forward to meeting and yarning with new people through ATSIDNQ.
