Crochet Theraphy

I started crocheting three years ago... At the time I was having seriously bad migraine symptoms..a migraine that woldn't stop! I could barely concentrate for more than a few minutes..but I was so depressed I was suicidal..the pain was too much to bare..So with hook and yarn in hand I began to start my firsy granny square..then I found books on freeform crochet and that's when my addiction to crochet took off..I was frustrated that I could only do it for short periods..but every time I finished a new motif it felt like an amazing accomplishment..gradually stitch by stitch I made a shawlette..I completed it in time for my 40th birthday!! By this time I had seen two specialists and nearly three years had passed and here were times I couldn't crochet atal..but I didn't give up..crochet helped me cope with the pain..it truly has changed my life!! If anyone is looking for a crochetting friend please feel free to add me :)..
