Between Depression and Mania

Photo taken by contributor Kait Mauro, a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native in her twenties who has lived all over the country. Kait’s primary diagnosis recently changed from Major Depression to Bipolar Disorder. She has also struggled with anxiety and disordered eating. She is currently an undergraduate at Washington University in Saint Louis where she studies Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies and Creative Writing. Her primary mediums are poetry and photography, though she has also been known to dabble in printmaking and other genres of writing. She seeks to understand her experiences and to connect with others through her art.

  1. Keep Strong, Kait. I have dealt with MDD for years – it is devastating – I know how you feel. I have no idea what you are going thru with Bipolar Disorder, however. Just be strong, be around positive people who want to help you and uplift you. Best of Luck, to get better is what we all hope for. Regards, Nawfal
