When I saw this I was reminded at once of a photograph I took some time ago, as a personal reminder for something I shall never pursue again. The pose of the fingers, the shades, everything is so strangely similar, only difference is that the arm in my photo shows what's beneath the bandages. It felt so weird to look up photos on the subject and find something like this, very meaningful, in this odd, random way. I love the gentleness of the colours! hope indeed.
Thank you, It is so hard to recover, or even find people who understand. I totally agree there needs to be more done to raise awareness. I myself do alot of work online with young people who self harm trying to help people find other ways to express their feelings. But if it is misunderstood by psychiatry then the genral public will find it even harder and I found much of the stigma came from psychiatry themselves. Your work is fantastic keep hanging in there xxx
