    Thank you for your much needed voice:) I’m donating a Therapeutic Adult Coloring Book for PTSD, and Adult ADHD Patients, and when I meet my funding goal, I’ll be donating copies to a local mental health organization. Art has always been a refuge from my own PTSD and I want to share that respite with the world. I’ve been an illustrator for twenty years and I’ve seen coloring help trauma survivors, adult ADHD patients, and even elderly needing to work on their coordination skills. I’d be honored if you’d post the link below on your wonderful site:) I’m offering several coloring templates, and color art prints of my original paintings, as well as full copies of the coloring book as rewards for the donors of this campaign! Thank you so much for considering it and I will joyfully be following your blog! Indiegogo link: http://www.indiegogo.com/project/preview/e0719bc

    I too think that the media and especially advertisements commercials make a major deal that everyone needs to be physiucally like everybody else. That one standard should fit everyone. However while I believe that is true I do think that there is the issue of being truly overweight. I’m not referring to anyone who believes if they are not super thin that they are overweight. I mean truly in need of losing weight as measured by the body mass index. By a primary doctor’s assessment of the right weight height ratio. As one can be too think one can be too fat. I believe in body acceptance but not when one is in an unhealthy weight. I include being too extreme either way.
