The Colors of Bipolar

Photo taken by contributor Danielle who has been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, type II. She uses photography in different ways to capture and explore her moods. It is an important part of her therapy and her life.

About this photo: “I love to take photos that capture what is going on inside of me at any given moment, especially when I am at one extreme or the other. It helps me feel creative, present and alive. I took this photo a few months ago when I was hypomanic. Color and light were shining through my personal darkness in chaotic but beautiful ways.

    That’s very interesting… I suffer from depression too. This DOES look like a good idea to vent stuff maybe. I might just give it a go :O)
