Dorota Chioma

"I have lived with depression since my teenage years. Submerging in shadows frequently, sometimes shallow enough but at times I fall into the abyss. I recently gave birth and had complications. Although my baby and I are now fine physically, I fell into postnatal depression and was trapped there for many months. The return to work became torture and a final blow.I have a difficulty separating from my baby and coming to terms with seeing her only two hours a day. I had a massive breakdown.

I was directed to attend art therapy and rediscovered my creativity. It started to help. And now, months later, I obsessively paint and draw to enable myself to float. I am not perfect but I am better now."
