Mental Illness

In the wake of Robin Williams' death, I was asked if we could run a prompt on mental illness. Without hesitation, I agreed.

It is something I struggle with, something people I love struggle with, something many more people than we realize struggle with.

This picture, one that captures, in the most personally terrifying way for me, post partum depression.

After my younger daughter was born, my head was filled with intrusive thoughts. My mind was working overtime, conjuring up images to show me, telling me all the possible ways I could harm her.

The most recurrent was a vision of dropping her down the stairs.

It took me over twenty minutes to work up the courage to take this picture.

Before

Hi there everyone! Looks like we are back to the weekly prompts.

For this week, take a picture of something "before".

This picture is of my oldest, as we walked in the office to have his braces put on.

Relief

This is a picture of Little Boy, not feeling well. Normally this wouldn't be something to be relieved about, but for him it is.  He has stress induced hyperglycemia and is being watched for possible Type 1 diabetes. 

He was running high all week and we were worried. Until he woke up coughing this morning.

Diabetes.  It'll mess with your head you guys.
