Shadow Self

Photo taken by contributor Danielle in NJ who has recurrent depressive episodes. She has lived with mental health issues for most of her life, and has also had close friends and family who have suffered from various mental conditions. She wants to advocate for others, but first she is trying to learn to advocate for herself.

About this photo: “This is a shadow of myself during a particularly difficult time. I was so close to an enjoyable situation, but separated by a few steps and a camera. Familiar story. It’s hard to enjoy anything when you feel like a mere shadow of a person.

  3. I have Asperger’s Syndrome and still know what you mean about being close but still off. I also like to take shots of my ‘shadow self.’ She never forgets her camera. 😉
