An episode of psychosis

By August 1, 2020Psychosis

Today I want to chip away at the stigma and major challenge of this year, an episode of psychosis.

Yes… Full on hallucinations, a break from reality, all from an endless amount of stress piling on all at once causing my brain to react in a strange way that’s more common than you think.

It’s hard to accept it and it’s been even harder to handle the long path of recovery for my mind despite having such a strong set of tools at my disposal, so I’m taking it one step at a time.

I’m learning how it works, how common it is and aim to use this to help others who are going through it or will face it at some point. I’ll be channeling it into my art (like this photo) and advocacy as I’ve always done. I already have a new series of self portraits like this that have helped me to express and make sense of what’s going on for myself and others. That’s the power of therapeutic photography and this community ❤️ thanks for being here and contributing!
