I know of your problem. My daughter had the diagnosis Bipolar II, and unfortunately she didn´t make it. There is a therapy form called Photo therapy or therpeutic photography (google it and you´ll fiind quite a lot). One of the forefigures is the British photographer Jo Spence who died of her breast cancer almost 15 years ago. She used this form of therapy to help her after the diagnosis. I also used this technique as a way to handle my daughter´s death (two years later) - a photoproject using a model who was also a friend of my daughter, and the rest of the family. It was difficult to perform, but it also gave me some comfort. Thr preparations and the discussions with my model was perhaps the most important part of the project. Finally, I should say something about your photo: it´s great!
