Group Info

Invisible--Scars is all about people who have physical and/or emotional pain that isn't visible just by looking at the outside of a person.

Group Rules and Outline

The rules are simple:
:bulletblue:Be respectful of others' opinions, others' conditions, others' beliefs, others' art, others' posts, and others in general.

:bulletgreen:You can be a perfectly healthy individual, or simply without an 'invisible illness' to join the group - everyone's welcome so long as they don't have volatile effects on the group.

:bulletyellow:It's preferred that the art submitted has at least something to do with invisible illnesses (not necessarily specifying the theme of 'invisible'), though this isn't necessarily an unbendable rule.

:bulletorange:Please do not flood the group's page with deviations; submit a reasonable amount of deviations a day, please.

:bulletred:The Featured folder is currently locked so that no one but the group founder can submit to the folder. The folder is for this… activity, and if you'd like to participate, then I (evryrosehasitsthorns.deviantar…) ~evryrosehasitsthorns would gladly submit it for you. =]

:bulletpurple:Please make certain that your deviations are submitted into the appropriate folder (it's pretty straight-forward.)

:bulletblack:PLEASE NOTE! Some individuals, especially those with mental illness, can be triggered by certain art, literature, depictions, and descriptions. Please be wary of what may or may not be triggering, and please put a warning that is very clear to see, perhaps even in the title!

This blog has resources for various invisible illnesses:…

If anyone you know on deviantART has an invisible illness, please notify them of this group! When built up, this group could be beneficial to all. As awareness of any kind of illness is important, it's particularly important to raise awareness of illnesses that one can't so easily see. It's important for all people, sufferers and healthy alike.

A nice little video detailing what it's like to live with an 'invisible illness.'

I created a new group, recently, which focuses primarily on awareness and support for the autism spectrum, the bipolar spectrum, and the schizophrenia spectrum, but is open to all. I have a group of admins who are wonderful and there are plans to have events every so often. If anyone would like to join :iconthe-spectra: please feel free to do so! It's modest in size right now, but I hope it will develop and grow with time.

Sorry, been away for a long time. I saw the group largely ran without me, so I kind of retreated. 19 days since you commented. I'm sorry for the delay, and I can't promise it won't happen again. Hope you've been well.

It's okay.
Is the group active?
evryrosehasitsthorns Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
People seem to post and be somewhat active with or without me. It's small, wouldn't call it bustling, but there are still people who post.

I like that song. I do think it would fit in with this group, as well. =] Did you mean to have the link automatically start at the end of the song, though?
xDivergence Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2014  Student Writer
It happens, youtube links don't like mr very much :/

I've been very inactive on dA these past few months. ^^; I just don't have much of anything in me this time of year, so sorry if I don't manage to get much of anything done on here. ^^;

Hello everyone. I'm very glad to have stumbled across this group, and look forward to meeting some of this lovely group.

I've been living with debilitating chronic pain for over a decade. Such a long time in pain gets depression thrown into the deal for free. Most of my paintings are done on low pain days so don't reflect the darker aspects, but some of them... well I'm very grateful I have this outlet. Hopefully I'll be posting soon :3
evryrosehasitsthorns Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
I understand. I have fibromyalgia, so pain and associated depression, anxiety, lethargy, brain fog, and so on, naturally coincide. You are quite welcome here and we're glad to have you. :hug:
