  1. Hi Annie, firstly the photo … I was taught a good photo needs interest and emotion, you score 10 for both, and I love where you placed your eye. Secondly, the greatest weapon I have in my fight against depression is the courage of my peers. Thank you.


  2. God bless your beautiful heart for sharing such a painful issue. I find it so hard to imagine that in a world so full of people and potential the crushing weight of Isolation and loneliness is something that far too many people have to bare!!


    1. I agree. I know where Annie is coming from being hospitalized (20+) times myself. I think it takes a lot of courage to submit any form extension of self. Anyone can take a “selfy” with a smile, but it takes courage to share one that conveys pain. I apologize if by using the *trendy* word *selfy* if I come across as trivial. I assure everyone that is not my intent.


      1. Please don’t apologize! Your heart comes through in such a genuine and truly honest way that is what makes it so real and so impacting to read!! God bless your day my friend and keep up the wonderful much needed work 🙂


  3. This is such an effective photograph – it really conveys exactly what you’re talking about, and at the same time, it’s a very interesting, strong image, no matter what the context was. The composition, the graininess – really great! I wish you well.
