Two Mirrors

If painting like this gives me a diagnosis of mental illness and personality disorders then let me paint some more!

A woman with long black hair is sitting on a gilded bench inside a room. Some of her hair is graying. There’s a mirror in front of her and another mirror behind her. Her face is reflected in the mirror but her eyes look the other way. The woman has red fingernails and yellow skin. The yellow skin indicates she might be ill. Her face is red and her mouth is suggested by a strip of white. Her expression and stretched arms show extreme distress.

This painting wasn’t hard to make. The circumstances in which this painting was made was what was very, very difficult.

This painting is one of many that express the mental misery brought to me by psychotherapy with a Psychologist who misrepresented his credentials and violated ethical rules in therapy. When I filed an ethics complaint, the Psychologist issued a threat via email and falsely claimed that a Psychiatrist diagnosed me with Schizophrenia. I won my case in 2023.

As a result of reading Kit Balane’s rebuttal, Fatima’s recent behaviour and her many cries for help to undo the damage caused by Kit Balane became completely understandable.
