Photo taken by first-time contributor Cla-c, a 45-year-old wife and mother of four who was diagnosed with Cyclothymia a year ago. She always knew something was wrong with her, and that her actions and words did not always feel like her. Her culture and environment did not allow diagnosis for a very long time. Now she is taking it day by day, and she feels blessed to have an amazing family. She loves her photography, and feels that it is a blessing that she is able to express her feelings through her art.
About this photo: “I don’t know who I will be today. I hope ‘me’. Not the shameful, lonely, paranoid, fearful, depressed girl. I can not tell anyone how I feel. They don’t get it anyway. I will just grow up and try to forget it …But forgetting never comes…”
