Photo taken by a bipolar woman in her 30s, who suffers terribly from depression and anxiety, and recently bouts of anger.

About this photo: This was taken last year on July 4th. I was seated in a beautiful park with my husband and baby. This year, my moods have been spiraling out of control lately, and like fireworks, they can suddenly explode in different ways. I’m trying to focus on the positive side, the times when I am doing well, trying to maintain my personal independence despite my problems, and most of all trying to enjoy this holiday with my family again and keep the explosions in the air, not in my moods!

    Good for you. Anger is hard, for me the hardest, but sometimes it’s the background for everything else.
