Newty, that's a morphed spider monster! RUN!!! 😲 Lol. I'm an Aracnaphobic. I don't think I've ever slept over 10 hours except twice; once with the flu I slept 3 days, only getting up to potty; the other when 3 wisdom teeth were cut out and I slept a week, just waking to potty and sip on liquids. I hope your day improves at least a little. Hugs love & prayers! 🙂💕🙏🌸
Its a manga drawing my son found... he said its perfect for me! So getting he tattooed on my thigh... soon as ive saved up for her! I have also started a painting copy in really big!... will take me a while but will post her when shes done 🤗
I want to thank you for the inspiration Lulabel. In fact, I'm going to give this a try in the form of therapy. I've never given it thought before as to what my pain might look like - were I to give it shape or color. Thanks again. ☺
Well you definitely have my attention Lulabel! To be completely honest here though, I have to say that I'm more than just a little shy 🐥🐔🐨🐙, but if you can be patient, I think I can do something with this. And btw, I really loved yours! And without realizing it, you just inspired me yet again. You get so into the habit of being at the mercy of this damned pain that the thought of fighting back barely even occurs to you anymore. So thanks for that too! Okay, time to get the old art supplies out ☺!
Bahaha,Alwayz as usual you made me laugh so hard I cried! That is the way I feel today! 😂😂
Did a lot of baking yesterday for the band bake sale at the last my Son's last football game of the season and I am paying for it dearly today, and I even had a chair to sit down in! But since it was my daughter's first day playing with the band at the football game I walked over to the other side and and did the momma thing and snapped some pictures!😊 The 7 the grader's won thier game YAY! But my Son's team lost and had several injuries one of the injuries required the player to go to the hospital and get stitches on his hand. They had a great season even with 4 losses and 5 wins. Either way I'm proud of both my kids.
MKnight, I have JUST recently gotten an image of my pain monster in my head and I have to say, it was similar in many ways to your picture. Although mine had tendrils that attached to my body making me a marionette and moving in odd ways and spasming and twitching from the pain. I'll find something online or I'll draw it eventually and post it for everyone to see. 😊💕
I really love this thread. I feel the fellowship in these images as I am unable to sleep and waiting on meds. I've weened myself off of all but one "as needed" Rx, but a storm front moved in for the week, so it's in play. KUDOS for all the wonderfully expressive images, and especially those done by members. They all spoke to my suffering tonight and gave me a feeling of kinship though I am new here. My local support cluster since 2004 has gradually dispersed over the last year to ailing parents in other states, divorces, cancer, and job changes, so I've been roughing it on my own for a few months. The heartfelt sharing here on pain monsters has called to mind a drawing I did in 2005 that I will dig out and post depicting of how I feel embodied by my pain monster. I'll put it up with one of my battle poems/lyrics for wretched days. Bless you all. xoxo
I become "Scrapper" embodied with my pain monster, clawing my way up the eroding walls of self worth, clinging to sanity, and enduring the agony to keep from drowning in a pool of suicidal idiation. Pain Monster is not seperate, he is part of me.
Phoenix Rising, good image, but your description is spot on!! I'm in the ravages of it with you just now and hope today brings us all at least a few good hours of relief, and tomorrow even more. We are lovable and valuable even in pain.💖💝
I never really thought about naming my monsters; and I can't draw. But, mine is from within. I feel as if someone has wraped dental floss with barbed wire and flossing my spine along with having metal claws driving them in opposiye directions...okay enough, you get the idea..I hurt...
