Bipolar Self

Photo taken by a contributor with Bipolar Disorder, type II. She is a wife, mother, writer, photographer and advocate who enjoys capturing the moments between the moments.

About this photo: “Even when I seem together on the outside, I feel like this inside. Like there are many different versions of myself swirling within, distorted and ever-changing. Kind of cool but kind of scary at the same time.
