Kathrin Diestel (100)

-oh sister-

i made this little collage when my sister was institutionalized about two years ago.
she suffered from a fit of paranoia and was scared all the time.
all the doctors could do "for" her was sedate her, tranquilize her.
the saddest thing about all this is that some of her scares were so real and understandable.
she feels like a victim of capitalism and exploitation which of course is true for all of us to a certain degree.
after a few weeks she was sent home from the mental institution and one and a half years later the same thing happened again.
i feel so terribly sad for her and this picture should show my feelings as well as hers.
