Photos of an Anxiety Disorder

Hard to Breathe

We recently found this article called “12 Breathtaking Photos Show What It’s Really Like To Have General Anxiety Disorder” and we think it’s amazing that someone so beautifully created art around how an anxiety disorder feels. From the article: “Trying to explain a mental illness to someone who’s never experienced it is like trying to explain color to a blind person,” said photographer Katie Crawford. Crawford has battled an anxiety disorder since age 11, so she picked up her camera and developed a breathtaking series of self-portraits, titled “My Anxious Heart.”

Tell us what you think? Did any of the images resonate with you? Did they help you understand anxiety disorders more? What do you think about the comments others posted underneath the article? Do you have any questions about their discussion? Tell us about it in the comments.
