Accidental Angel

Photo taken by first-time contributor Brittany Tremor, a 23-year-old photography student at Texas A&M University-Commerce.  When she was 14, she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Photography has always been a way for her to get outside of her head and recreate the things she sees around her or to convey what it’s like inside her head.

About this photo: “This photo sort of represents my relationship with the woman in the picture.  She and I had similar backgrounds and were both needing a friend close by to just let loose with, someone who wouldn’t judge and could understand how hard it is to deal with mental illness. I didn’t realize it when we met but she’s my accidental angel.”

    Thanks for sharing. Being Bipolar I don’t find it easy to share what is going on in my head with others, scared of the stigma.
