This is what my anxiety feels like.
Personally, photography has been my one true form of expressing myself. I’m not so good at verbally telling someone how I feel and knowing that they truly understand me. This is why photography and art in general are important: when I’m able to create a scene in my head and correctly translate it into an image for the world to see, I feel like people will be more apt to understand how I’m feeling or what I’m trying to say.
I’ve struggled with managing my anxiety for the past 2 or 3 years and after some intense therapy sessions last year, I’ve made some beautiful progress. I haven’t had a serious anxiety attack in over 4 months.
Because it’s not easy to convey my feelings (particularly with how my anxiety feels and what goes on when I have an attack or feel an attack coming), I have created this image as a visual representation of what my anxiety feels like before I’m about to have a serious melt-down. The light in the image is meant to signify the balance and positivity I’m trying to maintain while suppressing an attack all the while my skin crawls.
