Photos taken by a 40+ year old woman diagnosed with Bipolar II and ADD.
About these photos: I photographed the Mermaid Parade this past weekend at Coney Island, even though a few of my medicines are “off” and I was feeling kind of dizzy, confused and agitated in the hot sun. It was a day of intense color….ups and downs….weird, wonderful, crazy….the way my head feels sometimes when my moods are swinging or when the medicine isn’t working just right….I’m flying or deeply depressed, full of crazy thoughts and ideas. Fortunately, my doctors are working closely with me to fix the problems.
