Sharing my photo-art of my ‘recovery’ journey of bipolar disorder
I had this photo collage displayed at an art exhibition for several weeks. I semt it in when I was slightly manic. I then had a psychosis and wasn’t sure if I’d be able to participate. I was in a facility recovering from psychosis and I managed to get it edited and then printed via Costco online. On a day pass, I took it to when it was going to be displayed. It didn’t have a frame as I did have the time or brain power to get one. They said they’d see what they could do. Turns out they framed it and displayed it. My heart felt good that they put the effort in to get it on display.
This picture tells some of the story and beyond my story reaching out to nature. There are congruencies and incongruencies. Sometimes crazy feels crazy good and other time, I’m lost. I changed the ending of the poster, as now I feel I am in ‘help me’ mode. My last experience in the hospital was awful and I hope not to go back. Hence moving quickly toward a much gentler lifestyle. I must be trauma informed with regard to myself.
