(Sub)merged

Photo taken by Dee, who suffers from depression, anxiety, and recently agitation and anger, as expressed in this photo. She usually stays behind the camera, but in this case has stepped out.

About this photo: This photograph is actually two photos merged. A beautiful but dangerous ocean and a woman, me, head down, in pain. Trying to release the weight from my shoulders, and yet drowning in it all. Hopefully the water will wash away the problems and illness weighing me down, and not suck me under.
