Hi, I just wanted to say thank you for your artwork "Tangled Mind, Phantom Pains". Your caption hit home with me and then to see it in the art itself made me feel... comforted? I don't know how to say it. I love art and music for how it seems to express how you are feeling when you cannot find the words and your art has done that. I saw that blade in the chest and read your words and thought "yes! that is what it is like! someone knows!" Sorry if this is strange to share but thank you, really.
It’s not strange to share similar experiences with other people. It’s just nice to know that other people have felt it too. You feel less crazy that way. It’s not something that can be explained until you’ve experienced it first. But I don’t want people to dream about getting attacked nearly every week.
It’s a bizarre thing to feel something piercing through you and yet no pain is felt. Still hurts a lot, somehow.
Thanks for taking the time to share with me. I appreciate it :)
