Thread of Light; Thailand

  Photo taken by n23art. I have suffered from depression most of my life, although I didn't realise it until my mid 20's. Most of the time it's manageable but there's been a few times in my life when it has hit me very hard. I'm from the UK but I've been living in Asia for the last... Continue Reading →

Masquerade; Beguiling

Photo taken by Stephanie Cook,  Muse & Sparrow Photography. Knoxville, TN Depression and anxiety have been dark acquaintances of mine since I was a child.  I have always felt like the one on the outside looking in at the world, hiding myself away from the hurt and pain, not realizing I was building a wall between...

About this photo: I'm not sure why, but this drinking glass shattered spontaneously in my husband's hand when he removed it from the cabinet the other night. It was sudden,... Continue Reading →

Life From Above

There is something different about looking at the world from above. A distance that is all too familiar when you live with severe depression, anxiety, or bipolar; or all of the above. Everyone else is part of a nameless, faceless world that is moving on beneath you, without even a glance. I shot almost exclusively... Continue Reading →

Volcanoes of Guatemala

Photo taken by Thirdeyemom: Eight years ago after the birth of my first child Max I knew something was terribly wrong. Not with my newborn son. He was healthy and as beautiful as can be. Instead, something was wrong with me. I began to suffer terrible insomnia, constant anxiety and worry and loss of appetite.... Continue Reading →
