I made a mini zine for International OCD Week I have had Obsessive Compulsive Disorder since I was young. In my late teens it got bad. For many years I felt ashamed of myself and even withdrew from interacting with people. I am learning now that I am okay, I am capable of love and recieving love as well.
You can get a copy of the mini zine by sending me a $1 through PayPal to cover shipping. Also if you order any issues of The Stay At Home Girlfriend this week you will receive one in your order.
Making zines has help me be brave - it has helped me let my voice shine. I started making vegan food zines but my writing could not be contained to recipes. I wanted to share with others that I have really dark periods in my life, I have thoughts I cannot control, that things fall apart around me but I try to put them back together and hold on. Everyday I wake up and say IT WILL BE A GREAT DAY in my head with as much enthusiasm as I can. Everyday I hope for the best.
Every voice is unique and I'm glad you share yours through your zines. I can't imagine what it is like to live with OCD but I understand it better when you talk about it. <3ReplyDelete
Such a great idea for a mini-zine, I love your attitude towards mental health and I'll be sure to pick up a coup next time I have an address!ReplyDelete
