    I've been through ups and downs in my times away. Currently in a low point after breaking off a year-long relationship, but I'm healing. It's so cool to hear from other people with synesthesia. It's interesting for me because my colors aren't so distinct. Like, the associations I have are not totally set in stone. And some colors have two totally different emotions that go with them. I think I was in a metaphorical "grayscale world" while I was depressed. I just don't remember what's going on in my brain. (Long-term depression can do that to a person...)

    For me, Art is a window back into myself and my Colors. I've been really depressed ever since I turned 19. (One week after my b-day my kitten was hit by a car.) Majorly traumatic life events like that can shut down synesthetic connections temporarily.

    Basically, I am stepping into a world of color and it's beautiful & overwhelming. I try to channel that into my art.

    Well, that was a really ramble-y message, but oh well. It's 1 AM, my verbal skills are deteriorating. It's nice to meet you, Kyra.

    Hi! Welcome back to TeenHelp I remember you, but I don't think we ever talked. I've had a score of usernames that I can't remember, but I'm Kyra.
    I actually have synesthesia too, grapheme-color (or so I've heard it called). I associate things in my mind/words/letters/numbers with colors. The month of February is a light purple... April, my birthday month, is red... Some random examples. I'm an artist as well - or I like to call myself an artist. I'm an advocate for all creative outlets. I'm primarily a writer, but I also bake, draw/sketch, do makeup, sing, dance... and I've never thought about synesthesia affecting my art. That's interesting.

    It's awesome to see people return to the site. How've you been in your time away?
