How to Join, Rules, and Affiliates

:bulletred: We will NOT accept pieces that talk about suicide, or planning your own suicide. This is detrimental to our members.

:bulletred: We will NOT accept graphic pieces. In other words, mentions (or images) of blood, wrist-cutting, scars from self-injury, and the like.

:bulletred: If your piece talks about struggles with eating disorders, please do not be graphic about your descriptions. I'd prefer a more generalized approach, and please avoid using the word "fat". That word is highly negative and triggering for eating disorder sufferers. Also, we will NOT accept images of emaciated (boney, very skinny and unhealthy) bodies.

:bulletred: If you use profanity, please attach a Mature Content Filter.

:bulletred: You may submit up to 5 deviations per day. Please, do not submit your entire gallery. Submit only your best works.

:bulletred: Please, submit your artwork to the correct gallery folder. (A list of gallery folders is shown below.)

Also, NO NUDITY!!!

Do not submit artwork such as: sketches or unfinished drawings and paintings; grainy or unclear photographs, literature with misspellings or slang abbreviations (like lol, wtf, omg, etc.), and stamps that lack transparency. These will be declined.

:spotlight-right: Our main focus here is anxiety disorders, so naturally, your art that you submit here should contain elements of anxiety. However, we do have a set of gallery folders in which you can submit positive outlooks on anxiety, as well as general artwork such as: photographs or stamps that invoke calm and positive feelings in anxiety sufferers. :spotlight-left:


If your deviation is denied, a staff member will let you know the reason.

It seems like for a little while submissions weren't going through.  Even my own didn't show up, so I'm guessing a lot of people may have tried to submit without success.  As of now, it looks to be working again.  So if you have something to submit or re-submit, I think we're up and running.

And as I mentioned in the previous journal, I'm the only admin around at this point, but the only access I have is to accept or decline (and write journal entries).  Since it's just me, I may not be able to keep up with all the submissions, but I'll do my best.  Everything will be accepted unless you submit to the "Featured" or "Favorites" folders.  I'm reserving those for now, so please don't submit anything there.

Thanks!

If anyone needs to talk feel free to message me <3
I have anxiety and it makes going to school really hard and when people ask why I miss so much school it only makes it worse :( I think this may be pushing it but can anyone relate?

I'm a lot older so I'm not in school, but still, I can definitely relate.  It's the same in a work environment.  How do you explain to people that you're too anxious (or also, in my case, depressed) to show up?  I had to leave a pretty high-paying job because my mental state was too unpredictable--I never knew from one day to the next if I'd be able to work.  What infuriates me is people who don't understand and call us "lazy" or "weak" or give ignorant advice that doesn't help.  Especially because I had to go on disability at one point, I've had to deal with people's views about it, which are usually something like:  "Oh, you just don't feel like working" or "You're just a sponge, taking advantage of the system."  --Except that I get only one-tenth of what I made at my last job and live in poverty.  Why would I choose to live that way if I didn't have to?  Why would anyone?
