Amy suffered a significant health problem that led to over a dozen surgeries. During one significant hospitalization, her mother brought paints to the hospital. Amy created over 70 mixed media pieces, and upon her release from the hospital, held her first art show. Next, she took her journal entries and created a play, telling her story. Since then, she has continued to create art in different forms.

Q & A

What does self love mean to you?

It means not only do you really enjoy the happy experiences you have, but also the pain and sadness. Take time to honor those.

Not wanting to deal with those emotions that are difficult to experience.

Who is one person who has changed your life for the better?

My surgeons, but also my mother.

What is the best advice you have ever received?

Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, that’s not the end.

What is a self care habit that you practice regularly?

I do something physical. My yoga mat is right by my bed and I do it first thing in the morning.

Can you share a resource, an app or a tool that we can use to build our selfcare practice.

An app called DOCZ. It’s a peer to peer network.
