Rainy day—from the passenger seat

Nikon D750, Sigma 35mm f/1.4

A motion blur shot I took as my husband drove me to a neurofeedback appointment on a rainy day at the end of October. For the past 10 months (at the point when I took this photo–now it’s been about 15 months) I usually spend 6 hours in the car each week on the way to and home from neurofeedback appointments twice a week. I’m not sure I could really put my experience of what this process has been for me into words—extremely helpful, encouraging, healing and hopeful and it also comes with a lot of hard work, dedication, challenges and difficulties. After years of struggle and trying different treatments (one thing helped and many that added more trauma on top of what I’d already experienced) I am very thankful to find that neurofeedback helps get to the root of my severe mental health struggles. And it’s still not easy for me. Lately I’ve been able to bring my camera with me and sometimes take pictures (while my husband drives) as a way to cope with the intense things I’m dealing with.

I decided to share some of the photos and writing I’ve shared over on my Flickr account. If you’re interested in seeing more of those images you can check them out here.
