I saw my CPN yesterday and she suggested when I am really down I should do adult colouring. I had told her that I find some of my coping strategies hard to do when I feel really bad because I can't concentrate.
When I was in hospital the second time OT consisted of me cutting out bats with children's scissors and I found this a really low point because I felt this is what I had come down to. I have similar feelings about colouring.
I am not arty and don't enjoy drawing much. However I will try anything if it will help me beat this illness and I was just wondering if anyone else had tried adult colouring and if it is not as childish as it sounds.
