Your photo conveys intense emotions and struggle very well. The use of B&W with the warmer colors of the angry figures is great. To me the B&W suggests despair and detachment. It might be a little edgy for this forum, I hope not. Just from a purely artistic pov, I would leave the words off and remove the hanging picture and other equipment in the scene. The starkness of the bare log walls is very effective and those objects distract. We are used to seeing pretty pictures here, this is an altogether different kind of photo.

Oh, and be sure to take the pix with you when you visit your shrink (just kidding).
