Broken Light: A Photography Collective

Photo taken by a 30-something woman diagnosed with bipolar and depression among other things.

About this photo: I feel under water at the moment. Overwhelmed with feelings of anxiety. Pounded with terrible headaches nightly. I felt like I was doing better, but now I feel like I am losing control. I hope things calm down soon because they are starting to affect my family and my whole life. Perhaps if I can bring myself to open my eyes and look around, I will see the light that is just ahead of me as in this photo.

**Submit photos to Broken Light here. If you’ve ever felt depression or anxiety you can participate. *Now on Facebook & Twitter! Like us for addtl. work, announcements, links, etc.

    Having suffered PTSD many years ago, reading this was very moving. There was light ahead for me and I got there! Great post 🙂
