i’m writing a brief piece for my fanzine about how personal style and mental illness interact, specifically in terms of those of us with ‘invisible disabilities’- if you have a mental illness, how does it affect the way you dress? the questions I’m posing to people are meant to be simple so they can be answered a variety of ways:
1. how would you describe your style & in what ways do you feel your relationship to mental illness manifests itself in the way you dress?
2. and how do you use clothing and appearance manipulation in terms of self care?
everything will be kept anonymous so if you’re willing to answer those questions for me, you can send the responses to my ask box (or if they’re too long, contact me for my email address!)
hey everybody! do this if you want to! it can just be a few casual sentences, and i’m keeping everything anonymous. the purpose of collecting personal accounts from people is to showcase a broad variety of situations, styles, self-care tactics, etc, to be published in a list of testimonials for other people to relate to and be inspired by. i would hate to be the only voice present in this conversation, so please submit!!
SIGNAL BOOST. going to email this to a few friends too.
