“It’s not very clear as my mind is quite jumbled up. But these were the images that stood out for me. I feel that I have fallen down into a deep well, so up at the top this would be the sun and the land, these images in the right corner look like ghosts. And then some of these other images half way down are a bit spooky-looking or disturbed, and they are part of the reason I became unwell. Lots of horrible things got into my mind. Then down at the bottom its more dark, and the picture with the red around it and head down is me, going head first down towards the bottom of the well. Most of the text here is upside down or sideways, so its like everything has fallen apart and doesn’t make sense.”
