Photo taken by a woman who lives with Bipolar II and ADD.
About this photo: This is a close up of the Wonder Wheel at Coney Island, Brooklyn NY. It’s a huge ferris wheel with cars, some stationary, some rocking. Two of my four medications are imbalanced right now, my lithium is at a “sub-clinical level” affecting just about everything. The wheel is metaphorical….monotony and my inability to organize and plan, it goes round and round, stopping and re-starting, but seemingly doesn’t go anywhere…. I guess I should be grateful I’m not photographing the Cyclone, Brooklyn’s oldest and very rickety roller coaster.
