|Oh chills as I read this. My son suffers from PPD/Autism and sometimes expresses self-abuse, a compulsion caused by
brain disfunction...This is such a BEAUTIFULLY written and haunting write! Thank you for sharing this, Nikki!
PS Love Cameron's photographs. She saught to acheive the affect of
classical painting in her work. Some might argue that if still living her photography would benefit by new technology but I disagree. It perfectly expresses the themes of the Renaissance that were popular in her day and is an F-stop in time...

|Glad you're speaking out about this Sis. Nikki. Absolutely stunning connection between your interpretation of the portrait and a condition that has so many myths. Metaphors and descriptions are extremely vivid, sharply committed, yet smooth and textured, like the portrait itself.
blessin's, saving this one!

|This poem peels off the heart's skin. Society is quick to judge what it doesn't understand and in doing so send many people to a deeper hell of isolation, but everytime a mother, patient, or sympathetic writer shines light on an aspect of mental health a few more members of society are enlightened and perhaps a few people who struggle with mental health will be spared the stigma born of ignorance. Thank you for this write and much love to you and your child. ~~Nordette|

|I used to think like that until I read a biographical account of this young black woman on another site that was into "cutting." No, I don't believe it is a cry for help exactly, it mostly derives from a feeling of worthlessness, at least that is what I got out of reading this person's account of her ordeal. Mental? Most assurdly it is that . . . In spades.|
