Patient discussion about ARTISTIC

Q. Are most artists truly bipolar? Dear friends, a lot of people see a connection between creativity and insanity. I don't believe that's the case. However, I'm an artist. And I joke about that three-word sentence "I'm an artist" can justify or rationalize ANY activity whatsoever. "No, no. I'm not crazy. What I'm doing here is perfectly reasonable. You see, I'm An Artist”. It's like a cutout from the Looney bin free cards! I have been recently thinking that most artists are bipolar after seeing some of their work. Are most artists truly bipolar or is it because most artists are not ambitious besides being almost poverty stricken?

A. I believe that it is false to say most artists are bipolar or suffer mental illness at all. Artists are just that "artistic" most think outside the box and enjoy being a little different excentric if you will. Everyone in life has suffering (which some use to enhance creativity) wether it be sleepless nights with a new baby or death of a loved one, a break up etc... I am artistic and choose poetry and photography as my mediums. Most of my work is an expression of my current situation.

Q. I am an artist who is only breadwinner of my family.Can depression cause blurry eyes? I am an artist who is only breadwinner of my family. I have my own business which is flourishing well. I have three children who are doing schooling. My wife is a home maker. I don’t want her to go for a job. So she is very well taking care of me and my children for the past 12 years being at home. Now the problem is that due to natural disaster my studio was destroyed which made me to suffer from heavy depression even after I got the money from the insurance. For the past few weeks I could not draw or paint due to my blurry eyes. Can depression cause blurry eyes?

A. Hi artist. Yes, depression can cause a depletion of all major nutrition absorption, including the vitamins like vitamin A, which helps maintain good vision. Loss of appetite in itself is a symptom of depression. Some times tears due to depression do tend to blur the vision.
