Crochet Therapy

I’m having a bit of a manic episode right now. I couldn’t sleep last night. Instead of having screen time, I sat up and practiced a new crochet stitch. I used to puff stitch.

I had a good therapy session this afternoon. I acknowledged that I’m having a hard time, but it’s okay for that to happen. Despite the numerous crying bouts that I’ve had, I’m doing better than I have in the past.

Crocheting has also helped. I can’t turn off my brain, but giving my mind repetitive actions to consider helps me focus on the moment and remain mindful. Making something really helps me feel like I’m accomplishing something.

Working on an armband now to match my little hat. No real pattern, just fumbled my way through things.
