Medication. It can be both a blessing and a curse, like most things regarding mental illness.
Medication may be the path to your awakening. A collection of pills may protect you from experiencing a reality that is full of trauma and fear. It can be a blessing, creating a world in which you can interact with.
Mentally Ill Art illustrates the unraveling of a mind and the lead-up to it’s breakdown. It is not for the light of heart, but for those who have struggled. One who is in the throws of mental illness is caged within their lack of control. Therefore, their moods and perceptions overwhelm their behaviors. In effect, no one sees the person when the illness takes center-stage, bowing as it twirls and nosedives the survivor’s entire life into chaos and destruction. Psychiatric facilities are operating at full capacity as suicidal thoughts are sweeping over humanity. Fear riddles patients who scream and laugh and weep. By visualizing our neurotic symptoms through surreal expressionism, we come to face them. When facing them, we begin a conversation. This conversation leads to healing.
