Window on the World

Photo taken by contributor nomaggsrush, a woman currently living near Reading UK, however, she shall soon be “going nomadic” in retirement. She has had unipolar depression since her late teens, possibly due to a gene and a personality disordered mother. Unfortunately due to a couple of events (not due to her mother) she also has had PTSD for 18 years. She has spent her working life as a dual registered general and mental health nurse. She has a particularly warped sense of humour, like most nurses she has encountered – her first date with her late husband (a fireman) was spent trying to top each other’s gory experiences. He won.

About this photo: “’Window on the World’ is how I see the world when depressed. Detached and darkly ominous. Taken at the Big Pit, a mining museum in the Welsh valleys. I really enjoyed the visit, it was only when looking for an image that visually describes how my life is sometimes that I realised how apt this is.

  1. Walled in, with a narrow view. That is what I had experienced for a long time. Hoping for better times now, too. My mom is a retired RN. I find she has a unique take on things as I do.
